April 25

“The wings of transformation are born of patience and struggle.” – Janet S. Dickens

"Breathing in, I know I’m breathing in. Breathing out, I know As the in-breath grows deep, The out-breath grows slow. Breathing in makes me calm. Breathing out makes me ease. With the in-breath, I smile. With the out-breath, I release. Breathing in, there is only the present moment. Breathing out, it is a wonderful moment." Thich Nhat Hanh

"Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall in their place."

"Accept what is, Let go of what was and have faith in what will be."

“Real transformation requires real honesty. If you want to move forward – get real with yourself.” – Bryant McGill

“if you thinking, planning, worrying or fearing about some too much in your quiet moments, then maybe it is time to let go of it. If it is taking away your peace, then maybe it is just not meant for you.”

“Sometimes you have to just cut the knot because not all things are meant to be untied.”

It's so empowering to say "This isn't serving me" and walk away in peace

Sometimes we have to just stand back and let life happen. Don’t hold together what must fall apart. The familiar fades away to create space for the new

Kindness for others begins with compassion for ourselves.

“Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.” Raymond Lindquist

"While we are alive, everything is possible. You're not too old and it's never too late." David

Climb your mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you. Brian Tracy

"A year from now you may wish you had started today."--Karen Lamb

"I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions."--Stephen Covey

"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle. Happiness never decreases by being shared." --Gautama Buddha

“I think that any time of great pain is a time of transformation, a fertile time to plant new seeds.” – Debbie Ford

"To the heart in you, don't be afraid to feel. To the sun in you, don't be afraid to shine. To the love in you, don't be afraid to heal. To the ocean in you, don't be afraid to rage. To the silence in you, don't be afraid to break." ~Najwa Zebian

“Change can be hard. It requires no extra effort to settle for the same old thing. Auto-pilot keeps us locked into past patterns. But transforming your life? That requires courage, commitment, and effort. It’s tempting to stay camped in the zone of That’s-Just-How-It-Is. But to get to the really good stuff in life, you have to be willing to become an explorer and adventurer.” – John Mark Green
