Equally important in knowing who your friends are is knowing who your friends aren't. Thanks to all those who loved me & stuck by my side through thick and thin. It's how others receive us & care for us and how we respond through our circumstances that define us. We are more than just what we do and what we have. Our best asset is, by far, our character. -- Carina Rhea
Maybe tonight's Blood Moon is a sign. Maybe a significant shift is about to take place that will give me peace and solace despite what has & had seemed to me an unwanted turn of events. How can i cry when life has given me the reminders of my worth & value? Does it matter how & through whom those reminders were delivered? If I can push past the fear of death, I can face any fear and surmount it. I can only be grateful that through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come. Twas grace that brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
- C.S. Lewis
"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost." - Dalai Lama
"I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time - namely, that if you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be." - Joseph Cambell
"And so she changed while other folks never tried nothin' at all." - Shel Silverstein

"Visualize your dream.
Record it in the present tense.
(Don't be scared to try.)
Put it into a permanent form.
If you persist in all efforts,
you can achieve dream control." - Queensryche
