Mask

 
The most important kind of freedom
 is to be what you really are. 
You trade in your reality for a role.
 You give up your ability to feel, 
and in exchange, put on a mask.
~Jim Morrison~

What Is

 
I urge you to please notice when you are happy,
 and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 
if this isn’t nice,
 I don’t know what is.
~Kurt Vonnegut~

Trees

have to live 
than other things do.

Wisely and Earnestly

 
The secret of
 health for both mind and body
 is not to mourn for the past, 
worry about the future,
 or anticipate troubles 
but to live in the present moment
 wisely and earnestly.

Every Minute

 
Happiness cannot be
 traveled to, owned, earned, or worn.
 It is the spiritual experience of 
living every minute with
 love, grace & gratitude.

Rest

 
Rest is not idleness, 
and to lie sometimes on the grass
 under the trees on a summer’s day,
 listening to the murmur of water,
 or watching the clouds float across the blue sky,
 is by no means waste of time. 
~John Lubbock~

Today


Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
 I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
 I can choose which it shall be.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
 I have just one day, today,
and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx~

Hold onto That


You are not useless. You are not hopeless.
 And no matter how scared you are, you will never be alone. 
And deep down, somewhere, in the part of you that decided
 the good days and your happiness and your health 
 were all worth fighting for,you know that, too. 
Hold onto that knowledge.
 It will see you through the worst.
~Ella Ceron~

Life is a broken-winged bird,
  That cannot fly.
