You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Lisa--Thanks for the heads-up. What an inspiring woman!

"When I say itís you I like, Iím talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.Ē Mr. Rogers
Last month, our combined efforts to honor the mentally ill and educate the public about the effects of stigma were outstanding. Thank you ALL for helping to spread the word.
As the days get shorter, temperatures drop (in many countries), and the holidays approach, I am reminded that for many, depressive episodes may loom ahead. Please remember, that all of our services & programs are free and globally accessible.
