When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power.
Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Speak well of those who curse you. -Luke 6:27-28
Don’t compare your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 20.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. - Winston Churchill
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." — Albert Einstein
I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.
It doesn’t matter who you used to be; what matters is who you decide to be today. You are not your mistakes. You are not your mishaps. You are not your past. You are not your wounds. You can decide differently today and at every moment. Remember that. You are offered a new opportunity with each breath to think, decide, choose and act differently – in a way that supports you in being all that you are capable of being. You are not less than. You are enough.
