“Sometimes inspirations occur without our even seeming to ask for them.  Other times, we have to ask for them then create the quiet space within which to receive them.”


Marci Shimoff

“Most people aren’t in the habit of taking good care of themselves and honor­ing their own needs. Luckily, beginning that process is actually quite simple: you start by becoming aware of those needs. Three times a day, stop what you’re doing and ask yourself, What’s the most loving thing I can do for myself right now? Then pay very close atten­tion to the answer.”

Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood

“What you love and God’s will for you is one and the same. What this means is that the universe doesn’t play tricks. It’s not a mistake that you love the things you do. By consistently choosing in favor of your passions, you will find that you will naturally have the courage you need to live a fulfilled, success­ful life, one step or one huge leap at a time.”
