"i once had a garden filled with flowers that grew only on dark thoughts but they need constant attention & one day i decided i had better things to do."
"Devotion is an action, not an emotion. Want to know what you’re devoted to? Look at your calendar. Examine how you actually spend your time, on the planet. If you ‘can’t find the time’ for an hour of yoga, three times a week — or whatever else you say you want to do — that’s fine. Do something else. Check your email. Fly a kite. Learn to crochet. Host a tea party. But don’t kid yourself — it’s tiresome. Be honest about what you’re devoted to."
"In every moment, you make a choice, and those choices add up to the life you experience. You can choose to follow your purpose, and to achieve what you know deep inside you can, or you can choose to avoid your greatest possibilities."
"It’s hard to accept, but you can’t change the past. You can’t go back and manipulate things to the way you wanted them to happen. Because life’d be meaningless and boring and just not worth living. But you can change the future and that’s a beautiful thing about life. Yes, you will make mistakes. And yes, you will have bad days - but as long as you let the past go, you’ll have such a gorgeous and bright future ahead of you. Knowing that things were meant to happen. Knowing that each day you will learn something so that you keep growing to be a better person. Life is like a rope, twined in all its complexities and yet weaved into one marvelous stream that you have the chance you use something amazing from. So grab hold of it."
