Note to self

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

Nanea Hoffman


Just walk on the earth

The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water; but to walk on the earth.

Chinese proverb


New Year’s resolution

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

Mother Theresa

And a happy new year to all of you!


The right amount of advice

Listen to all, plucking a feather from every passing goose, but, follow no one absolutely.

Advice for stressful times

For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.

Woodrow Wilson
