“You’re the Author of Your Own Life”


“Those men and women who are always singing the blessings of life are not luckier than we are.  We may think they are if we are feeling sorry for ourselves, particularly if they got a raise at work and we got laid off.  But the only real difference between them and us is vision, and that doesn’t mean eyesight.

We create our world.  Every situation we confront is what we’ve ‘asked’ for.  Those we befriend, and even those we dread, are people we unconsciously need to know.  What we experience moment by moment, reflects the inner world of dreams or fears that consume our minds.  Our lives are personally engraved.  Since that’s how it works, why aren’t we always singing our blessings too?  Why have we chosen these painful situations?

We may find no satisfactory answer for how our lives have unfolded up to now.  They are what they are, and we are responsible, but today is a new day.  Tomorrow is too.  There is time to create a new vision.”   (Daily Meditations for Practicing The Course, Karen Casey)



“Commit to releasing your attachment to low-frequency thoughts and experiences, trust that the Universe loves the crap out of you.  Kick fear in the face, and head bravely into the unknown.

You’re the author of your own life – not your parents, not society, not your partner, not your friends, not the bullies who called you Fatzilla in junior high – and the sooner you decide to write yourself a better script, the sooner you get to live a more awesome life.”   (You Are a Bad Ass, How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life, Jen Sincero)



“To change one’s life:  

  • Start immediately,
  • Do it flamboyantly,
  • No exceptions.”   (William James)
