“Feeling overwhelmed stems from the illusion that everything is happening at once. In truth, it is always just one moment at a time: you are just here and now in the moment”—
On the most overwhelming days, ask yourself,” if I only had this one thing in front of me to do today, would I still feel overwhelmed?’ Most often , you’ll find that, no , you wouldn’t feel overwhelmed if it was just one thing in front of you . Get there. And do each of the series of “one things” throughout the day with the same attitude
"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
- Calvin Coolidge, was the 30th President of the United States.
Don’t Take Anything Personally:Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
But sometimes, the people we meet can test us too. We get tested on our faith in humanity; our ability to keep standing when someone knocks us down; and our ability to love again, even when you don’t think you can or know if you should.
This list is stil a work in progress, but I really wanted to get it posted. I have either read parts of/all of the texts below or they have been recommended to me. Please reblog and add your own suggestions to the list. Each time someone adds something new, I’ll go back…
“Every morning you awaken deposit thoughts of prosperity, success, wealth, and peace. Dwell upon these concepts. Busy your mind with them as often as possible. Their constructive thoughts will find their way as deposits in your subconscious mind, and bring forth abundance and prosperity.”—Dr. Joseph Murphy (via freedomoverfear)
“The only DELAY at our prayers being answered is the realization of this in of our own mind. Most people do not expect their prayers to obtain an immediate response so we fail to have the acceptance of the good that we pray for. So we must expand our awareness in order to prosper, that is in order to get the money we desire by knowing that it is ours in the moment that we accept it as so. As the radical Jesus said KNOW THAT IT’S YOURS KNOW THAT YOU HAVE IT. DON’T KNOW THAT IT IS COMING TO YOU. OR THAT IT WILL SHOW UP SOMEDAY.. KNOW THAT YOU HAVE IT NOW!!!!!! The invisible side of life exists we must know this, If we look at the physical only than we are looking from the physical vision and not our physical vision, rather than our spiritual vision. We must see the wealth, the health, the joy, the happiness flowing to us with that unseen law of life moving to us, as we hold our mind focused on this, the money, and we will receive the money. It takes mental effort. In the unseen all things are happening.”—

I don’t want another mother. I want a woman. I want to rise to the occasion. I want to learn and bask in your glow. I want to protect you and do whatever I can to give you strength.

I need your help because I don’t know anything about it. I am suspicious and ready to leave and hit the cold road for the frozen dawn. I am just going to trust you with everything in me. I see now that it’s the only reason to be here. After kissing you, I cannot remember what it was like to kiss any other woman. At this point I am not sure if I ever have.”—Henry Rollins (via amaalsaid)
Take two slow and deep breathes in and out. Feel the difference. We can tap into an energy that is within us, deep inside, by closing our eyes, breathing deep, and remembering where our heart is. Our heart is the most important part of our body. The ancient Khemau (Egyptians) who we can credit…
