Steps That Enlighten The Truth

“We can grow by our questions as well as by our answers.””Our words are seeds planted in other people’s lives.” John Mason

“Nature is based on harmony. So it says if we want to survive and become more like nature, then we actually have to understand that it’s cooperation versus competition.”  Bruce Lipton

Get Rid Of Regret

“If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to  give up, or fight like hell.”  Lance Armstrong

“For me growth begins immediately after I am able to admit my mistakes and forgive myself.”  Kimberly  Kirberger

How much confusion we all create in our own lives through our thoughts, fears and jealousies. We sometimes  imagine things that are not really there, or understand what is said or done in a way it was never meant to be interpreted. This causes pain and frustration in any relationship.
