"Some things simply are. There are no explanations, no logic, simply a reality that is many times beyond control. Sometimes, we must find our own inner strength, our own place from which to draw the courage and fortitude necessary to allow us to live and move beyond that which is painful. Other times, we simply need to find another vantage point from which to see hidden beauty, potential opportunities or perhaps a chance to reach outside of ourselves and help someone less fortunate, thus feeding your heart and distracting bad energy."

"The best way to change or improve one’s self and accomplish more in life is to think less about how to begin your endeavor and more about how you will end it."

"It is one thing to be honest open, forgiving and patient with others; it is another to be that way with yourself."

"Following others to conform within certain accepted parameters and norms of a given society, for the good of the society, is one thing. However, when one follows others for lack of leadership from within, he may inadvertently be furthering the needs and desires of those he is following, which can many times be at the detriment of his own needs and those of his society."

"Many of life’s challenges can be powerful catalysts for self-discovery by forcing one to rise to the occasion and do whatever is necessary to overcome them; in the process, acquiring not only a broader understanding of one’s strengths and weaknesses, but a valuable life lesson. Unfortunately, for some they may provide little more than a convenient excuse for giving up."

If you expect nothing out of life, you will never be disappointed, and you stand to be pleasantly surprised
should you actually succeed at something. Unfortunately, your life will also be meaningless for lack of dreams, aspirations and hope for the future.
