    A Quote I Like...

    After 9/11 when the country was gearing up for war I was in a shop and found a bumper sticker with a quote by Ghandi: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" I bought the bumper sticker & it is on my rear bumper to this day.

    Let Them Go...

    When people leave you, let them go, your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn't make them bad people, It means their part in your story is over.--Unknown

    Be careful who you open up to.

    Only a few people actually care, the rest are just curious.

    I don't usually go crazy about quotes,

    but I recently watched Randy Pausch's "Last Lecture", and I found some true gems to live by. "The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something." I think the next one is especially important for a...

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.

    “A heart given freely is the most vulnerable

    and selfless thing one can offer another human being. It can be as fragile and needy as a newly born infant, or as solid and self-supporting as a granite pillar, yet it is the hands of the recipient that determines its ultimate fate.” ― Mark W Boyer

    this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...

    “Have you ever sat in complete darkness with

    someone? Somehow the words feel heavier and the phrases deeper, and all of a sudden the room is no longer just in darkness but quietly lit with the light of their soul. You can see it bare. Without its shell. Defenseless. There’s too much truth the light hides.”
