JOANIEBUG46 wonderful words from Mother Teresa.


The natural is right
The easy is right
To be yourself is right
To be yourself is all that you
Can really be
Anything else is to go astray.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh


Edited by: PUNCHILOUIE at: 8/9/2011 (11:42)
What makes a person who they are, are the choices they make. Albus Dumbledore

Our choices define us. E. Kant

If you keep believing in yourself and seek enthusiasm inside your soul, things will get simpler, more spontaneous. P. Coelho

Knowledge is like the wind, once you obtain it, you can go anywhere. Yellow Hare(Native-American Chief)

Written by Mother Teresa

People are often unreasonable,
Illogical, and self-centered
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you
Of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
False friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone
Could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
They may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
People will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
And it may never be enough
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
It is between you and God’
It was never between you and them anyway.

This says it all!


Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire."
-Arnold H. Glasow

This really isn't a "quote" it's more so an excerpt from some article read to me by a professor. I wrote it down because I liked it.

* In order to address the issue of low self-esteem try to identify the point in which you stopped believing in yourself. What events precipitated that loss of faith. Objectively, and if possible, analyze the situation. Look at it in a sense of perspective: "Did you actually fail or do you just think you did?" What events lead to the failure;" Did you lack information? - Did you not work hard enough? - Did you listen to those who told you that you will fail?"
* Truly great people will make you think you can succeed. Truly great people want you to be great as well.
* Don’t listen to those who say "you can’t."
* Whatever the reason, identify it, change it, and correct it.

Guilt eater no more! Thin me, here I come.

I am starting a Vinyasa yoga class today and I think it means a flow class where you repeat certain poses in a set. Looking forward to that. I have been doing regular hatha yoga for 3 years and this is just something different our instructor is adding one day a week.

It's what you think that makes the world
Seem dull or bright to you;
Your mind colours all things grey,
or makes them radiant hue.
Be glad today, be true and wise,
Seek gold amid the dross;
Waste neither time nor thought about
The bridge you'll never cross.

Everything in moderation, except aikido and yoga. One can't get enough of that.

"The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being."

Hmmm...I like that one, Be_Radiant ! Many times we all hang on to the familiar, the shore, because we are afraid of what's out there when we cross the ocean.

“You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
- Christopher Columbus

What you think is what you become. Be beautiful. Be kind. Be radiant. Be love.

Some people dream of success... while others wake up and work hard at it.

"What meaning do I wish to give this event, those words, that person? Our thoughts coat the world. The world has surprisingly little effect on our happiness until it is coated with our thoughts and thereby assigned its meaning for us. Today I will distinguish between what I am seeing and the significance I am giving it."
Hugh Prather

Come back to center, that place in you that is still, calm, quiet, and connected. Your center is a place you can trust. It connects the body, mind, heart and soul. It connects truth, your inner voice, and the Divine. Your center is a place that is quietly confident, unassuming, spontaneous, and free, a place that is naturally joyful and at peace. It knows the rhythm of the universe, the rhythm of all creation, and it delights in its connection to that rhythm. Your best decisions and finest moments come from that place.If you must leave your center to learn a lesson, feel a feeling, or experience something new, do that. Take all the side trips you are called to. But come back to your center when you're done. And go to your center first, before you go anywhere else.

Melody Beattie

The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you enthrone in your heart - this you will build your life by, and this you will become.

-James Allen

I blog quotes everyday on my page. I think it is a good idea to always come back to center; motivating and uplifting words can keep us all grounded. So if anyone is interested please come by my page and leave quotes or your personal thoughts on my quotes. Our minds get quite a beating in everyday life so reward and refresh it with anything that will bring a smile to your face!

"The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses- behind the lines. In the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights"
- Muhammad Ali

I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than on the opinions of others.
Marcus Aurelius

Delusion's most cunning defense is that it cannot see!

Many people are either unwilling or unable to suffer the pain of giving up the outgrown which needs to be forsaken. Consequently they cling, often forever, to their old patterns of thinking and behaving, thus failing to negotiate any crisis, to truly grow up and to experience the joyful sense of rebirth that accompanies the successful transition into greater maturity.
M. Scott Peck
