“I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,
I hope you dance.”
~ Lee Ann Womack
“When you look at a field of dandelions
you can either see a hundred weeds
or a thousand wishes.”
everything will make a perfect sense
so for now,
laugh at the confusion,
smile through the tears
and keep reminding yourself
that everything happens for a reason.”
~ Author Unknown
“He who closes his ears to the views of others
shows little confidence in the integrity of his own views.”

“I used to think
that anyone doing anything weird was weird.
I suddenly realized
that anyone doing anything weird
wasn’t weird at all
and it was the people saying they were weird
that were weird.”
~ Paul McCartney
“People who wonder
if the glass is half empty
or half full miss the point.
The glass is refillable.”

“When you go out into the woods,
and you look at trees,
you see all these different trees.
And some of them are bent,
and some of them are straight,
and some of them are evergreens,
and some of them are whatever.
And you look at the tree and you allow it.
You see why it is the way it is.
You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light,
and so it turned that way.
And you don’t get all emotional about it.
You just allow it.
You appreciate the tree.
The minute you get near humans,
you lose all that.
And you are constantly saying
‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’
That judgment mind comes in.
And so I practice turning people into trees.
Which means appreciating them just the way they are.”
~ Ram Dass more
