We think it is the other person.




“We all have somebody in our lives who has the uncanny ability
to push our buttons. We think it is the other person.
Surprise, surprise! The problem doesn’t lie in the other person, it lies in us! No one can push our buttons unless the buttons are connected.
Detach whatever fear, guilt, shame, or anger we have attached to the issue
and people will be unable to push us.”

~ Iyanla Vanzant

Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough.


“Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough.
Not only have I found that when I talk
to the little flower or to the little peanut
they will give up their secrets,
but I have found that when
I silently commune with people
they give up their secrets also –
if you love them enough.”

~~George Washington Carver

You have to break barriers to grow.


Sometimes the best solution is the most painful option.
You have to break barriers to grow…
If people don’t like the transformed you and decide to walk away,
don’t stop them,
they were never meant to be in your circle.

Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern —



Whatever our hands touch
we leave fingerprints —
on walls, on furniture, on doorknobs and dishes;
there’s no escape, as we touch we leave our identity.

Wherever I go today
help me leave Heartprints —
heartprints of compassion,
of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern —
may my heart touch a lonely neighbour
or a runaway daughter, or an anxious mother
or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today to leave Heartprints —
and if someone should say “I felt your touch,”
may they also sense the love
that is deep within my heart.

. . . they miss the glory of parenthood,


“Parents are often so busy
with the physical rearing of children
that they miss the glory of parenthood,
just as the grandeur of the trees
is lost when raking leaves.”

a meaningful friend… a meaningful day.


“Old friends pass away, new friends appear.
It is just like the days.
An old day passes, a new day arrives.
The important thing is to make it meaningful:
a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day.”

~ Dalai Lama XIV

Today, see if you can stretch your heart . . .


Today, see if you can stretch your heart and expand your love
so that it touches not only those to whom you can give it easily,
but also those who need it so much..
