Just one more for today!

"Always do the best you can, and everything else will take care of itself. Focus your energies on doing what you can rather than worrying about what you can't."

Happy and Blessed Sunday to you!

"If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you that matters. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit."

Here are a few new ones!

"A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided."

"The best efforts from others does not come from lighting a fire beneath them, but by building a fire within."

"One's destination is never a pl…

Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

"Since changes are going on anyway, the great thing is to learn enough about them so that we will be able to lay hold of them and turn them in the direction of our desires. Conditions and events are neither to be fled from nor passively acquiesced in; they are to be utilized and directed."

FRIDAY'S WORDS

"We are never without the solutions to our problems. Its just that sometimes we have to remain peaceful and patient while we are waiting for the solution to become clear."

"When we live as our authentic selves, decisions become easier because we aren't concerned with what others think of us--rather, we're concerned that we're doing right or wrong, and we …

WEDNESDAY!

"The mindless junk of your past crowds out opportunities and sets pointless limitations. Move out the junk, and you create room for the rest of your life. Ultimately, it's not just a question of tidying your house; it's a question of liberating your heart."

MORE WISE WORDS TO START YOUR MONDAY!

"Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible."

That fits every artist, no matter what medium or tools they use!

Have a splendid …
