Thank you, Dad

Things my dad may have said if he could put his feelings into words:
You can't make everyone happy. You are not a pizza. ~Unknown
I can't think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself. ~Emma Stone
There is nothing more wonderful in life than seeing life as an adventure. We should all try things that we're afraid of. We should all look very clearly into the unknown and enjoy it. Because when you come in contact with things that you really don't know, that's when you're truly living. ~Unknown
It's a little embarrassing that after 45 years of research and study, the best advice I can give people is to be a little kinder to each other. ~Aldous Huxley
The love we give away is the only love we keep. ~Elbert Hubbard
Be courageous, care for others, a hero lives in you. ~Allison Crowther

Self Worth and Self Respect

There’s a message in the way a person treats you. Just listen. . . ~R.H. Sin
Self respect, self worth and self love, all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value. ~Rob Liano
There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance. ~John C. Maxwell
Self respect, by definition, means being good to yourself for the sole reason that you revere your worth and demand your dignity. ~Barbara Stanny
We are exposing and discarding the unreal. When the unreal is discarded, you don’t have to go and search for the real. The real alone remains. ~Mooji

Gardening the Mind

You're walking on a garden path called life, and it's filled with everything imaginable to you.  Everyone you've ever met or even passed on the street is here in this garden, here just for you.  All of the people in your life blend with all of the experiences you've ever had.  Even though it could seem crowded, all of these people are part of the garden flowers, the trees, the grass, the stream, and the path itself; your life experience.  Everywhere you step, your feet are met with love.  Every face shines with the light of the heart's inner fire.  Every thought you've ever thought and every word you've ever spoken are also here for you in this garden.  Most of them are just seeds, lying in the nurturing soil of your endless experiences and relationships.

Many of your thoughts have been painful, and many are loving, light, gentle and breezy.  It's your choice now to nurture the thoughts you want to grow.  Here in your garden, on your path, your thoughts and your words are pure magic, sending wave after wave of love and light into the seedlings ready to burst through the earth.  You carefully tend the seedlings, showering them in your song.

As your feet step on magical soil, your words change the path to shape around your journey.  All of the people you encounter, no matter what they say or do, are reflecting back to you who you really are.  No matter what you see, you stop judging.  You decide to love yourself deeply for being able to create this magical experience in your life, and so you also must love everyone who is here for you.  When you shift your vision to the beauty of those who have chosen to be a part of your life's path, it is easy to see yourself in them, and them in you.  You are intertwined like the vines growing effortlessly around you.

You are willing to trust your constantly changing experience, which means you can relax and trust everyone, no matter what they appear to be doing, After all, your life is magic, and nothing is as it seems until you look with your heart and let that be the magic that flows through your mind, clearing the inner vision.

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere. ~Carl Sagan

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere. ~Carl Sagan

The power of imagination created the illusion that my vision went much farther than the naked eye could actually see. ~Nelson Mandela

Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality. ~Lewis Carroll

Reality is for people who can’t deal with imagination. ~Unknown
