Everyone is Broken

Anne LaMott's 4th item she's learned from life.
4. Everyone is screwed up, broken, clingy, and scared, even the people who seem to have it more or less together. They are much more like you than you would believe. So try not to compare your insides to their outsides. Also, you can't save, fix or rescue any of them, or get any of them sober. But radical self-care is quantum, and radiates out into the atmosphere, like a little fresh air. It is a huge gift to the world. When people respond by saying, "Well, isn't she full of herself," smile obliquely, like Mona Lisa, and make both of you a nice cup of tea.

Ancient Wisdom

"Our bodies and hearts know so much more than our minds. We hold an ancient wisdom that most of us have no idea exists. We are the sum of our ancestors and all their hopes and dreams for us—how can their prayers not be etched into our bones?" – Raquel Scianna

Wilderness

"Life is complex. Each one of us must make his own path through life. There are no self-help manuals, no formulas, no easy answers.The right road for one is the wrong road for another ... The journey of life is not paved in blacktop; it is not brightly lit, and it has no road signs. It is a rocky path through the wilderness."
- M. Scott Peck

Journey

Abandonment

"The original abandonment, the original abuse, the original horror has some reason and meaning in it. It is not senseless. It is not like being run down like a dog on the highway. Its meaning most often is the development of tremendous strength, tremendous power, tremendous intuition. And I will tell you frankly that most of the people who are the greatest healers living on the face of this earth are unmothered children. One of the great gifts of the un-mothered child and also the healer, and the writer and the musician and all those in the arts who live so close with their ear against the heartbeat of the archetypal unconscious - one of their strongest aspects is intuition." 


- Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes

What You Do

“What you do proves what you believe.” – Simon Sinek

Emotions

"Emotions are the next frontier to be understood and conquered. To manage our emotions is not to drug them or suppress them, but to understand them so that we can intelligently direct our emotional energies and intentions.... It's time for human beings to grow up emotionally, to mature into emotionally managed and responsible citizens. No magic pill will do it."
- Doc Childre

Creative Storm

"Rise to meet that which you desire, rise to each occasion. Let your beauty fill the sky with thunder. Bring on the creative storm. The power of desire is potent. In rising to meet it, we remove it from the realm of pure fantasy and free up the energy of action. Fantasy, while giving us hope, can also keep us static, becoming just another story that saps our life force. Fantasy that shifts into desire becomes the energy that feeds our work and infuses our lives with deep satisfaction. When it is rooted in fear, envy, or apathy, fantasy remains in the realm of 'someday.' The potency of desire brings us into the now, freeing us up to walk more fully into our lives." ~ T. Thorn Coyle, Evolutionary Witchcraft

Life Backwards

"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you love to do, in order to have what you want." - Margaret Young
