Connections

When connections are real, they simply never die.

They can be buried, or ignored or walked away from, but never broken.

If you've deeply resonated with another person or place, the connection remains despite any distance, time, situation, lack of presence, or circumstances.

If you're doubtful then just try it--go and revisit  a person or place and see if there's any sense at all of the space between now and then.

If it was truly real, you'll be instantly swept back into the moment it was before it left-

during the same year and place with the same wonder and hope, comfort and heartbeat

Real connections live on forever 

Victoria Erickson.

 

PRICELESS

We learn something from everyone who passes through our lives.

Some lessons are painful, some are painless....

But all are PRICELESS

 YOUR LIFE

This is your life.

Do what you love and do it often.

If you don't like something, change it.

If you don't like your job, quit.

If you don't have enough time, stop watching TV.

If you are looking for the love of your life, stop:

They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.

Life is simple.  Every last bite;

Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our difference.

Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them

Travel often:  

Getting lost will help you find yourself.

Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

Live is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them

So go out and start creating.

Life is short 

Live your dream and wear your passion.

 

OUR DEEPEST FEAR

Our deepest fear is not that wer are inadequate.

 Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulou?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing

small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates other.

Marianne Williamson

 

YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED

You are not obligated to do everything a healthy person does.

You are not obligated to be an inspiration.

You are not obligated to hide your illness in order to make other people comfortable.

You are allowed to know your limits.

You are allowed to have bad days.

You are allowed to stay in bed if you can't get up to do anything but go to the bathroom

It is not your fault if other people leave you because of your illness.

It is not your fault that you are sick.  

You don't have to apologize for something that is out of your control.

SHORT

Life's too short to argue and fight.

Count your blessings

Value your friends, and

Move on with your head held high

And a smile for everyone
