Plan

It is far easier to let things happen to you,
than to plan and have things happen for you.

Plan

Risk

To remove all risk from life results in no life at all.

Risk

REsist

REsist the temptation to pause your life because of fear or distractions. REclaim. REnew. REstore.

REsist

Protection

The same wall you build to protect yourself from being hurt also keeps you from being loved.

Your Past

Stop using your past as an excuse for not moving forward.

Your Past

Remember

I don't remember your last laugh. I didn't know I should.
I don't remember your last smile. I didn't know I should.
I don't remember your last words. I didn't know I should.
I do remember my last "I love you". I knew I should.

Remember

Never Settle

Being content is far different than settling.
Never settle.

Never Settle

Agreeable to a fault

You can be agreeable to a fault.
People won't value your opinion if they
believe you never have one.

Agreeable to a fault

Elusive

Happiness is elusive, but worth looking for.

Elusive

Dreams

Dreams aren't built with good intentions,
but with focus and tenacity.

Dreams

Circles

Sometimes you just need to spin in
circles to get a new perspective.

Circles

Discomfort

A few moments of discomfort are far
less painful than a lifetime of regret.
Take a chance.

Discomfort

Daughters

I will raise my daughters to be smart, independent women so if they marry it will be their choice, not a necessity.

To be: tolerant respectful flexible responsive willing
To not be: numb fearful empty hopeless hardened
