  1. The other day in my gratitude app this quote came up. “Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” -Epicurus I believe that this should be a mantra for all!

  2. “Victory cannot tolerate the truth, and if one displays a true thing before your eyes, you reject it for the sake of victory. He, then, who wants the truth in himself drives away the spirit of victory, for only then is he ready to behold the truth.”

    Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlav [translated by Martin Buber]

  3. “Your inner beauty, your strength, and your talent far outweigh any deficits you may have.”

It requires a lot of patience to get to the prize. Occasionally life will add a box of pop rocks to that jawbreaker requiring even more patience as our life is exploding all around us”.
