“It takes a lot of courage to release
the familiar and seemingly secure,
to embrace the new.
But there is no real security
in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the
adventurous and exciting,
for in movement there is life,
and in change there is power.”

Alan Cohen

Living with integrity means:
* Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships.
* Asking for what you want and need from others.
* Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension.
* Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values.
* Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.

One of the most beautiful gifts in the world
is the gift of encouragement.
When someone encourages you,
that person helps you over a threshold
you might otherwise never have crossed on your own.

John O’Donohue

“Too often we underestimate the power of
a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,
an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Leo Buscaglia

“To listen is to continually give up
all expectation and to give our attention,
completely and freshly, to what is before us,
not really knowing what we will hear or what that will mean.
In the practice of our days, to listen is to lean in,
softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.”

Mark Nepo

“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.”
John Powell
