“In life we are not given the option whether we experience pain, discomfort, and suffering. Each of us must experience life’s difficult and painful challenges. However, we are given the choice as to what kind of suffering we can experience. We can choose to endure our healthy suffering by facing our problems honestly or we can choose unhealthy suffering to avoid our healthy suffering. Healthy suffering is taking responsibility for your experience and is usually intense, time limited, and followed by a stronger character and feelings of empowerment. Unhealthy suffering is unending until we take responsibility and face our healthy suffering. It is characterized by purusing false hopes in things of little or no virtue. Use the problems you experience in life as an opportunity to become stronger and more alive. From the ashes of your despair arise the phoenix of your truth.” – Wendy Hill

There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” –Nelson Mandela
