“Once the Soul Awakens, The Search Begins / All About Potential”


“When you’re a little kid, you’re a little bit of everything:  Artist, Scientist, Athlete, Scholar. Sometimes it seems like growing up is a process of giving those things up, one by one.  I guess we all have one thing we regret giving up; one thing we really miss – that we gave up because we were too lazy, or because we couldn’t stick it out, or because we were afraid.”   (The Wonder Years)



“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back.  From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment.  The eternal makes you urgent.  You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.”    (John O’Donohue, Anam Cara:  A Book of Celtic Wisdom)



“If something was really important, fate made sure it somehow came back to you and gave you another chance.  Events conspired to bring you back to where you’d been.  It was what you did then that made all the difference: it was all about potential.”   (Sarah Dessen)



“The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean un-sailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good.”    (Brian Tracy)



“I’m no more a wonder than anyone.  And that’s what makes the world magical.  Every baby’s a seed of wonder – that gets watered or it doesn’t.”   (Dean Koontz, Relentless)



“One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything you are and won’t let you be anything less.  They see the potential of you.  They see endless possibilities.  And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way. As someone who matters.  As someone who can make a difference in this world.

If you’re lucky enough to find this person, never let them go.”   (Susane Colasanti, So Much Closer)
