Standing for what you believe in,
Regardless of the odds against you,
and the pressure that tears at your resistance,
… means courage.

Keeping a smile on your face,
When inside you feel like dying,
For the sake of supporting others,
… means strength.

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what’s in your heart,
You know is right,
… means determination.

Doing more than is expected,
To make another’s life a little more bearable,
Without uttering a single complaint,
… means compassion.

Helping a friend in need,
No matter the time or effort,
To the best of your ability,
… means loyalty.

Giving more than you have,
And expecting nothing,
But nothing in return,
… means selflessness.

Holding your head high,
And being the best you know you can be
When life seems to fall apart at your feet,
Facing each difficulty with the confidence

That time will bring you better tomorrows,
And never giving up,

… means confidence

Patience is a virtue and a power too. Patience tells us that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and that we get over there one step at a time. Patience teaches us not to rush. Knowing that there is a reason and a season for everything it enables us to smile at the challenges, realizing that there is an answer to every problem. And, even though we cannot see it, yet there is awareness that within every crisis lies an opportunity.

Love allows your beloved the freedom to be unlike you. Attachment asks for conformity to your needs and desires. Love imposes no demands. Attachment expresses an overwhelming demand–“Make me feel whole.” Love expands beyond the limits of two people. Attachment tries to exclude everything but two people. – Deepak Chopra

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

-Thich Nhat Hanh

If you are unhappy, be unhappy.
Do not judge yourself for being that way.
Love your unhappiness. It means you are ready for change.
You are ready to go forward, yet you mourn for the old;
you are not ready to let go.
Allow the unhappiness, there is purposefulness in it.

Remove from your life everything that inhibits you
from being the totality of yourself. That is called “becoming”.
Remove from your thoughts all the have to’s, should’s, must’s.
Remove the images you think you must be and just be.

Embrace your life. Know that you created it.
Love all that you have been, said and done.
Know it was all purposeful.

Never see anything as a failure.
See everything as an accomplishment.
Love the hurt, the pain, the sorrow.
For what an experience! What a wonderment!
What jewels of wisdom are now in your treasure!

Be your own teacher, friend, counsel.
Confide in yourself, speak to yourself.
