Muses for the holiday season...

On love…

Love people that treat you right and pray for the ones that don’t.

Don’t worry about who doesn’t like you. Spend your time and energy loving the people who love you.

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”  ― Mother Teresa

On life…

Sometimes the thing that is holding you back…. is all in your head.

He who laughs ... lasts. – Erma Bombeck

On peace…

Peace within you begins the moment when you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.

Peace is marked by the ability to move away from drama and people that create it.

Distance yourself from perpetrators of negativity and criticism.

On friendship…

Life is not about the people who act true to your face. It’s about the people that remain true behind your back.

Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . ." ― C.S. Lewis

On divorce…

Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know you when you need help and brave enough to ask for it.

Be willing to let go of life as you’ve planned it, so you can embrace the life that is waiting for you.

On the future…

Moving forward doesn’t mean that you forget about the past, it simply means accepting what happened, sharpening your skills to discern and make deliberate choices to create a happy future.

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing throughout the year.
