It's not what happens it's how you handle it.

"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."

Mistakes are proof that you are trying.

We are not who we are negatively thinking about. We are also not who we are positively thinking about. Nor what others are thinking about us. We are us. We exist in the in-between.

If you light a lamp for someone else, it will also brighten your own path.

Problems are solution opportunities.

If you can't fix it with duct tape, you aren't using enough duct tape.

I wish I'd known this at the end of my first marriage, I'd have given it at least one more go before giving up on fixing him........ ;)

I just wonder
Each time I look at my future
It looks like a nightmare landscape of fears
Sometimes it seems brighter
Especially when I realise
That I've been mistaken
And that it's only the present moment

For me the struggle to see the present moment in a new way helps me cope with anxiety
I try to think of it in a science fiction
Kind of way. Changing the moments perspective and steering towards a better direction.

Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives.
