Just Somethings to Think About....

Picture by my sister Lauri.

"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream"  C.S. Lewis

"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become." Buddha

‎"People who soar are those who refuse to sit back, sigh, and wish things would change. They neither complain of their lot nor passively dream of some distant ship coming in. Rather, they visualize in their minds that they are not quitters; they will not allow life's circumstances to push them down and hold them under..."Charles Swindoll

‎" Life really is beautiful, even with all of its ups and down. No, let me rephrase that, Life really is beautiful because of its ups and downs!!!"  Jessica Simons

Here's a another quote for you. (I like quotes too!) in your search to rediscover yourself:

"It takes courage to grow and become who you really are."
~ EE Cummings

"He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away." ~ Raymond Hull

good luck in discovery of self! May you find wonderful things about yourself you never knew before! Susan

That last one is from my High School friend, Jessica Simons. Who is in Korea, husband in military, and mothers 7 kids. 2 she adopted from Africa. :) She's had the most ups and downs I've ever heard, but still keeps moving forward.

Oh and her husband was deployed to Afghanistan for 14 months while she was left with all the kids.

Thanks Susan. Those are good ones too.

Lauri, I'm so glad to know who to give credit to for that great thought. I love this and it's so true - all the ups and downs do make life beautiful.
