10 Things to Remind Yourself on a Daily Basis

Bad days can be extremely overpowering sometimes. When we’re having a bad day, everything feels wrong and the day seems to get even worse as we sink further into frustration and despair. By the end of the day, all we want to do is pull the covers up over our heads and block it all out.
When I clawed my way out of a depressive phase last year, it was a daily challenge to keep myself from falling back into that phase again. I had to go through a process of re-building my self-esteem and re-evaluating my life.

Asha Stanford Holi, The colour Festival.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Mahatma Gandhi.

My child had a fantastic, fun time at the recent  Asha Stanford Annual Holi,   he calls it the color festival.  Asha for education a non-profit organization is doing a great job of bringing hope through education, in India. Please take a look at their website. I like their support a child project.  Support A child program efforts help sponsor the costs for health, living and educational costs for individual children.

It was a fun day for a wonderful cause and a nice way for my child to learn about India.

You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”-Brigham Young.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds…..

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
–William Shakespeare.


In the place of stillness, rises potential. From the place of potential, emerges possibility. Where there is possibility, there is choice. And where there is choice, there is freedom. –Gabriella Goddard.



Don’t let the world change your smile, let your smile change the world.
