“Communities are not built of friends, or of groups with similar styles and tastes, or even of people who like and understand each other. They are built of people who feel they are part of something that is bigger than themselves: a shared goal or enterprise, like righting a wrong, or building a road, or raising children, or living honorably, or worshipping a god. To build community requires only the ability to see value in others, to look at them and see a potential partner in one’s enterprise.”
Suzanne Goldsmith
“It is not lies or a lack of loyalty that ends a relationship. It is the agonizing truth that one person feels in their heart on a daily basis. It is realizing that you are coping and not living. It is the false belief that there is a verse, quote, phrase or talk that will magically make you feel content, complete or not care. However, it doesn’t last longer than a few days, before your mind and heart goes back to what it wants. It is the moment you realize that you left without ever leaving. It is the moment you realize that fear, shame or guilt is the only thing standing in the way of the life God meant for you to live.”
Shannon L. Alder
“Whenever the world throws rose petals at you, which thrill and seduce the ego, beware. The cosmic banana peel is suddenly going to appear underfoot to make sure you don’t take it all too seriously, that you don’t fill up on junk food.”
Anne Lamott
“In a long distance race, everyone gets tired. The winner is the runner who figures out where to put the tired, figures out how to store it away until after the race is over. Sure, he’s tired. Everyone is. That’s not the point. The point is to run.”
Seth Godin
“Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.”
Stephen Hawking
Everything is bonkers.

Good or great leadership is rooted in a deep sense of personal accountability.
Vince Molinaro,
Author and Advisor
“Self-love, self-respect, self-worth: There’s a reason they all start with ‘self.’ You can’t find them in anyone else.”
You are the author of your own story. What happens to you in this life is all up to you. It is NOT what happens to you, but how you react that will decide your destiny. So even when not-so-good things are happening, you can smile, you can laugh, and you can find the treasure in your trial.
You only get ONE life. No one knows how long it will be. Enjoy every day and don’t let this one get away.  There are no do-overs in this journey we call life.
