Friendship improves happiness and abates misery,
by the doubling of our joy
and the dividing of our grief.
~ Cicero ~
Change is not something that we should fear.
Rather, it is something that we should welcome.
For without change, nothing in this world
would ever grow or blossom,
and no one in this world would ever move forward
to become the person they’re meant to be.
~ B.K.S. Iyengar ~
Freedom is not the absence of commitments,
but the ability to choose —
and commit myself to —
what is best for me.

Your journey has molded you for the greater good,
and it was exactly what it needed to be.
Don’t think that you’ve lost time.
It took each and every situation
you have encountered
to bring you to the now.
And now is right on time.
~ Asha Tyson ~
Be like the bird that,
passing on her flight awhile
on boughs too slight,
feels them give way beneath her,
and yet sings,
knowing that she has wings.

Nobody has ever measured,
not even poets,
how much the heart can hold.

The best day of your life is the one on which
you decide your life is your own.
No apologies or excuses.
No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.
The gift is yours —
it is an amazing journey —
and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.
This is the day your life really begins.
~ Bob Moawad ~
Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain,
but for the heart to conquer it.
~ Rabindranath Tagore ~
I will follow the upward road today;
I will keep my face to the light.
I will think high thoughts as I go my way;
I will do what I know is right.
I will look for the flowers by the side of the road;
I will laugh and love and be strong.
I will try to lighten another’s load this day
as I fare along.
~ Mary S. Edgar ~

you give your all, and yet you always feel
as if it costs you nothing.

To live is the rarest thing in the world.
Most people exist, that is all.

Create the highest, grandest vision
possible for your life,
because you become what you believe.

Find life experiences and swallow them whole.
Travel. Meet many people.
Go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys.
Exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life.

is just to love and be loved in return.

It had long since come to my attention
that people of accomplishment
rarely sat back and let things happen to them.
They went out and happened to things.
