It seems that many people around me are experiencing difficulty in one way or another in their lives. I sometimes wonder if it has something to do with the alignment of the planets, or some unseen or unknown force. I think I remember hearing once that your life goes through phases. Something like life is great for a number of years and then negative forces move in and you struggle for a few years. If I had more time this morning, I would do some research.
But instead, I just wanted to share some positive quotes and offer encouragement to those out there that need it...including myself.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning. ~Ivy Baker Priest
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves. ~Edmund Hillary
Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. ~Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha
It's not easy taking my problems one at a time when they refuse to get in line. ~Ashleigh Brilliant
The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears. ~John Vance Cheney
Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll. ~Author Unknown
I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me! ~Dr. Seuss

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, red wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"~~author unknown
