Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
This image, which I discovered yesterday on the facebook page of Bobby Umar – a motivational speaker, reminded me of a lesson I have learned: That when in doubt, just take a small step forward and often, things will become abundantly more clear.
Your life is God's gift to you. What you make of it is your gift to God.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness.” ~ Mark Twain
The moments of my life when I have felt most ALIVE are those when I chose to face my fears. ~ R.R.
What motivates me? Why do I seek to live intimately with my own life and the world? The most truthful answer to this is the simplest: because I have to. I am compelled by some deep hunger of the soul, driven by a desire that will not leave me alone, to live life to the fullest. And I know this does not mean working endlessly, accomplishing the most, or consuming the greatest amount and variety of things and experiences. It means tasting each mouthful, feeling each breath, listening to each song, being awake and aware of each moment as it unfolds.
~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer, Author of “The Invitation”
“If we would just slow down, happiness would catch up to us.”
~ Richard Carlson
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
~ Mark Twain
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming, “WOW, what a ride!””
Quoted by Melanie Heacox, a Naturalist on board the National Geographic Explorer, while crossing the Drake Passage
