Anxiety, depression and pessimism
are not excuses
for not living a full life.
They are symptoms
of being afraid
when you discover that living a full life
represents a continuous process
with considerable challenges
for each of us.
Success is discovering
that we each can handle
the challenges life presents us.

    which is why it is imperative to the human life experience that we have community. It is essential that we practice the kindnesses of simpler societies. Everyone needs propping up at some time, and is made able to reciprocate once healed.

  3. Life is a daily gift we should accept with gratitude and courage. We should not squander each day lamenting what we do not have. Finding joy in little things can bring us peace so essential in this topsy-turvy world we find ourselves.

    I like your thinking very much …. gives us courage to move … fear is a big bubble that wants to burst and shower the universe with real tears in rainbow colors! ….. not fight to hold itself together for eternity … which is not natural ….. you writing inspired me to say that!
