“Therefore, dark past, I'm about to do it. I'm about to forgive you for everything.” Mary Oliver

What a challenge . . .

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” Rainer Maria Rilke

This quote has always been my “re-set” for moments/periods of confusion.

"To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself." Thich Nhat Hanh

I liked this perspective on reaching inner peace —

"Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love." Lao Tzu

Wisdom has been around for a long time . . .

"Ours is not the task of of fixing the entire world at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés

A good daily reminder!
