Willingly accept the complexity and the contradictions of life


True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize
how little we understand about life,
ourselves, and the world around us.

there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.

Willingly accept the complexity and the contradictions of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You didn't get stamped out of a mold. You aren't a "black person" or a "white person," a "fat person" or a "skinny person," a "bad person" or a "good person." You are a highly complex human being with emotions, beliefs, capabilities. Each day you face challenges to your health, relationships, finances, and world-view -- and every day you respond to those challenges in ways which are unique to you.

Honor and love all of your unique self. Never diminish yourself with self-applied labels or categorizations.

Gaining wisdom from carefully observing life

it is a prerequisite for informed action.

The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.

Let Your Faith Be More Powerful Than Your Anxiety


Every tomorrow has two handles.
We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety
or the handle of faith.
- Henry Ward Beecher

Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow...
but only empties today of its strength.
- C. H. Spurgeon

All times are times of crisis. Wars, earthquakes, diseases, floods and murders have been constant companions of humankind from the beginning. 300,000 people die each and every single day. Yet against this backdrop, the magnificence of human accomplishment, human love and compassion, and great human happiness plays out each day. Let us marvel, and have infinite gratitude for, the human spirit that towers above the circumstances in which we find ourselves.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If I were to say, "God, why me?" about the bad things,

about the good things that happened in my life.
