The key to change… is to let go of fear.
No longer lend your strength to that which you wish to be free from.
-Jewel (A Life Uncommon
You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
I choose gentleness… Nothing is won
by force. I choose to be gently. If I
raise my voice, may it be only in praise.
If I clench my fist, may it be only in
prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of my myself.
When you come to the end of all the light you know and it’s time to step
into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two
things will happen: Either you will be given something solid to stand on,
or you will be taught to fly!
Throw your heart over the fence
and the rest will follow.
-Norman Vincent Peale
A friend is one that knows you as you
are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become and
still, gently allows you to grow.
