Keep Your Cool

All things are difficult before they are easy.

Take a deep breath. It’s just a bad day, not a bad life.

I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Just give me coffee and watch me make it happen. 😎

Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can.

You don’t have to give in, you can stay strong and take a higher road.

I am thankful for all those difficult people in my life. They have shown me exactly who I do not want to be.

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

There is no secret ingredient in the recipe for success. Work hard, grab opportunities and follow your passion.

 

True Love

True love is not a hide and seek game: in true love, both lovers seek each other.

— Michael Bassey Johnson

Manifesto of The Brave and Brokenhearted

There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fearmongers than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise.

With skinned knees and bruised hearts; we choose owning our stories of struggle, over hiding, over hustling, over pretending.

When we deny our stories, they define us. When we run from struggle, we are never free. So we turn toward truth and look it in the eye. We will not be characters in our stories. Not villains, not victims, not even heroes.

We are the authors of our lives. We write our own daring endings. We craft love from heartbreak, compassion from shame, grace from disappointment, courage from failure. 

Showing up is our power. Story is our way home. Truth is our song. We are the brave and brokenhearted. We are rising strong.

— Brené Brown

Don’t Judge

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted: “Dad, look the trees are going behind!”

Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed…

“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!” The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…

“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?” The old man smiled and said…“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”

 

Lovers

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.

— Rumi

Love

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

– Rumi

Be certain

Be certain that in the religion of Love there are no believers and unbelievers. LOVE embraces all.

― Rumi

A lot of faith

It takes a lot of faith
To keep believing there will come a day
When the tears and the sadness, the pain and the hate
The struggle, this madness, will all fade away.

— Carrie Underwood

Amen ❤️🙏
