“You’ll Find Your Way Again”


“I think we wake up every day with high intentions and by dusk we have routinely fallen short.”   (Helen Simonson, Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand)



“For our homework, as kids, we would sometimes be asked to write, ‘What I did today.’  Now I feel like compiling a list: the things I didn’t do today.  The things I haven’t done in life.”   (Intimacy, Hanif Kureishi)



“Let the guilt teach you how to behave next time.”   (Insurgent, Veronica Roth)



“Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being.  You’re a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist.  And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that.  Unconditional self acceptance is the core of a peaceful mind.”   (St. Francis de Sales)



“If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be.  Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places.  Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path toward happiness; don’t waste time with regret.  Spin wildly into your next action.  Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes, because you’ll never get another one quite like it.  And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over.  Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart … where your hope lives.  You’ll find your way again.”   (Everwood)
