In this life we are all just walking up the mountain, and we can sing as we climb or we can complain about our sore feet. Whichever we choose, we still gotta do the hike. I decided a long time ago singing made a lot more sense.

New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.

Don’t believe everything you think.

When things change inside you, things change around you.

Be like an elephant: Remember what matters, look out for your herd, and don’t be afraid to take up space.

Train your mind and heart to see the good in everything. There is always something to be thankful for.

Blessed are the weird people: poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, troubadours, for they teach us to see the world through different eyes.

Sometimes you just need to distance yourself to see things more clearly.

We can always choose to perceive things differently. We can focus on what’s wrong in our life, or we can focus on what’s right.

When you stop looking at what you have lost, you can better see what you have.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and focus on what could go right.

It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

If you can’t change the circumstances, change your perspective.

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have—life itself.

Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses.

More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.
