Words I Live By..A Smattering of Inspiration

“The simplest and shortest ethical precept is to be served by others as little as possible, and to serve others as much as possible.” ~Leo Tolstoy

“There is little peace or comfort in life if we are always anxious as to future events.” ~Samuel Johnson

Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.” ~H.W. Longfellow

“Repression of expression creates an obsession that only responds to self-reflection and confession.” JL Smith

“An intention is followed by additional intentions; a decision is followed by action.” ~Unknown

MY PERSONAL FAVE: “To remain silent when they should speak out in protest makes cowards out of men.” ~Thomas Jefferson

“Don’t be a human doing all the time. Sometimes, just be a human being.” ~ Unknown

The Gifts of Feeling your Feelings:

From PAIN comes HEALING.

From FEAR comes WISDOM.

From SHAME comes HUMILITY.

From GUILT comes AMENDS (eventually…)

From ANGER comes STRENGTH, LEARNING

And from JOY comes HEALING as well.

XOXO

Love, JamLand
