Compassion does not mean pity 
Compassion goes a long way 
You might be the one offering a kind word or 
gesture today 
While tomorrow someone else might show 
you the way
by:Ana Monnar

To Let Go Takes Love by Robert Paul Gilles, Jr.

To let go does not mean to stop caring,
It means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off,
It's the realization I can't control another.
To let go is not to enable,
But to allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is not to admit powerlessness, which means
The outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another,
It's to make the most of myself.
To let go is not to care for,
But to care about.
To let go is not to fix,
But to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,
But to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
But to allow others to affect their destinies.
To let go is not to be protective,
It's to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny,
But to accept.

Winning Strategy
Charles Ghigna

Self-discipline is what it takes
To find a way to win;
To see if you have what it takes
Just take a look within.

You Can Be Whatever You Want To Be! by: Donna Levine

There is inside you
All of the potential
To be whatever you want to be; 
All of the energy
To do whatever you want to do. 
Imagine yourself as you would like to be, 
Doing what you want to do, 
And each day, take one step
Towards your dream. 
And though at times it may seem too
difficult to continue, 
Hold on to your dream. 
One morning you will awake to find
That you are the person you dreamed of, 
Doing what you wanted to do, 
Simply because you had the courage
To believe in your potential
And to hold on to your dream.

Suitable Language
Charles Ghigna

Language is the dress of thought,
Your words wear every shade;
Be careful what you choose to say,
Your mind is on parade.

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other. 
Abraham Lincoln

    You can be all that you want to be. What a thought. For me it is the courage to be so. To step out of self and be all the God calls me to be. With His help I can be that person. Great blog girlfriend.
