Is it forgiveness even if we don't forget and scars remain?  Sharon Van Baale

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woohoo!!  What a ride!""  Kate Langdon

"Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do.  Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong."  Ella Fitzgerald

"The beaten track does not lead to new pastures."  Indira Gandhi

     "The heroine answers the call, "usually by necessity."   She is called to embark upon the Heroine's Journey of transformation through a crisis (danger and opportunity) of one kind or another.   She finds herself stuck in a too small job, relationship, or life. Running on empty, she is slowly dying of perfectionism, the need to please, and a lack of time. Everything is closing in on her.

     She is stuck in the muck (depression), her days lived on auto-pilot and survival mode. Empty, numb and depleted in heart, body and spirit she crawls into the ground (bed) every night waiting and praying for Grace. She is being called and what happens next is a choice.

     Will she choose to heed the call and transform? Or will she choose the grave and build the house back the same old way continuing on ad-nausea with perfectionism, pleasing others, emptiness, stressed for time, depressed, and living like a robot?

The path she chooses will make all the difference."   Rebecca Jeffers

 

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,  And that has made all the difference".  Robert Frost

"We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?" Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.'" -Marianne Williamson
 

“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habit. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” -Lao Tzu

"There is in every true woman's heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity." 

- Washington Irving, The Sketch Book

"Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway."  Mary Kay Ash

"It is indeed, a trial to maintain the virtue of humility when one can't help being right."  Judith Martin
