Avoid Labeling Yourself


Set Life's Rhythm with Your Heart-Drum
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Every man and woman is born into the world
to do something unique and something distinctive;
and if he or she does not do it, it will never be done.
- Benjamin E. Mays

Don't let the noise of others' opinions
drown out your own inner voice.
- Steve Jobs

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
- Raymond Lindquist


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.

Today's affirmation:
I follow my own star and my own inner compass.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Offering Comfort

people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

What do we live for, if it is not
to make life less difficult for each other?
- George Eliot


Generally, your greatest service to someone in their time of trouble, sorrow, or confusion, is your comfort. Take the time to listen to their troubles and concerns with patience, kindness, and empathy, but without offering unsolicited advice or suggestions. Your kindly hand on their shoulder, supportive hug, and patient listening are often the greatest gifts you can offer.

Taking Action About Things That Matter


Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter.

but to live in a way that respects
and enhances the freedom of others.
- Nelson Mandela

Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble
and beautiful end of a human being.

you have chosen the side of the oppressor.

and you say that you are neutral,
the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

you always know the right thing to do.
The hard part is doing it.
- Norman Schwarzkoff

are violated, your liberty, your freedom is put at risk.
Let there never be a day when we cast about in horror
and have to ask the question, "How did it ever come to this?"
- Thomas Childers

Do your little bit of good where you are;
its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
