No matter what hay needs grazing today — be kind. You’ll make more hay. 😉
Your life energy is like a pot of boiling water. Spend it boiling over? There’s no more energy for joy, laughter, and love. Your choice.
Your kindness lights up a dark and stormy night.
Be kind to everyone you meet today. You have no idea how they are suffering.
Green hills, warm sun, and a blue gorgeous sky lies just beyond the storm clouds you see. Focus on the clouds and you’ll miss the gorgeous green.

“When it is obvious the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.”
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
“You just have to determine to settle for nothing less than being fully alive, to show up, be who you are, and share your gifts.”
“Out of perfection nothing can be made. Every process involves breaking something up. The earth must be broken to bring forth life. If the seed does not die there is no plant. Bread results from the death of wheat. Life lives on lives. Our own life lives on the act of other people. If you are lifeworthy, you can take it.”
“Grief, no matter where it comes from, can only be resolved by connecting to other people.”
“This time, we are holding onto the tension of not knowing, not willing to press the panic button. We are unlearning thousands of years of conditioning.”
“Holding a grudge doesn’t make you strong; it makes you bitter. Forgiving doesn’t make you weak; it sets you free.”
“She was strong and weak and brave and broken… all at the same time.”
