It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to.
I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy, and driven.
Speaking to my heart Barbra Streisand!
Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.
The person who is a master in the art of living makes little
distinction between their work and their play,
their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body,
their education and their recreation,
their love and their religion.
They hardly know which is which.
They simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace in whatever they do,
leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing.
To them, they are always doing both.
Lawrence Pearsall Jacks (a Saturday morning email from my mother. I love her!)
It is not the question, what am I going to be when I grow up; you should ask the question, who am I going to be when I grow up.
Draw from your past, but do not let your past draw from you.
Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
You have the power to create. Your power is so strong that whatever you believe comes true. You create yourself, whatever you believe you are. You are the way you are because that is what you believe about yourself. Your whole reality, everything you believe is your creation. You have the same power as any other human in the world. The main difference between you and someone else is how you apply your power, what you create with your power. You may be similar to others in many ways, but no one in the whole world lives her life the way you do.
