“It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit – start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it, I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that stop you, I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before, I hope you meet people with a different point of view, I hope you live a life you’re proud of – and if you find that you’re not I hope you have the strength to start all over again. ” – Benjamin Button – written by Eric Roth based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

“If you drive looking in the rear view mirror,
you will sooner or later collide with something.
If you are constantly battling with past hurts,
fears and injustices they will hold you back.
Accept them, learn from them.
Then move forward to what you want and who you want to be.
Ties to the past can only keep you looking back, if you let them.
Today is the day to look forward.”
~ Linda Sage

Everyday, think as you wake up, ‘today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can.’

Our effect has caused her suffering
To provide for us and future generations she needs our help
The Earth speaks softly and We must listen”

Marsha McCarthy

Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are
