The problem is, everyone is looking for unconditional love, carrying a bag full of conditions.

When you continue to be irritated by someone who refuses to change you also refuse to change.

I thought I was broken and needed fixing. Not true! I was hurting and needed healing. A completely different concept.

If I waited until I had all my ducks in a row, I’d never get across the street. Sometimes you just have to gather up what you’ve got and make a run for it.

Sit with it. Sit with it. Sit with it. Sit with it. Even though you want to run. Even when it’s heavy and difficult. Even though you’re not quite sure of the way through. Healing happens by feeling.

Stay kind. It makes you beautiful.

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’

Sometimes the weight you need to lose isn’t on your body.

Despite all the bad days and mean people, I still believe in good days and kind people. Plus, there are always dogs.

If you have nothing but a caring family, believe me, you are rich.

I’ve learned that you can keep going long after you think you can’t.

In my world there are no bad kids, just impressionable, conflicted young people wrestling with emotions and impulses, trying to communicate their feelings and needs the only way they know how.

Kindness: Loaning someone your strength instead of reminding them of their weakness.

Tell people what you love about them. Less criticism, more compliments.

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.

Sometimes all you can do is accept there’s not much you can do. And sometimes all you can control is how well you let go of control.

Do what you can, when you can, with as much love and honesty as you can, and when you can’t, rest.

Your current situation is not your final destination.

Sometimes a breakthrough comes after the biggest breakdown of your life. Hang in there.

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.
