Don't take anything personally.
- don Miguel Ruiz

Not everyone is always going to like what you do.
Your job application, your book proposal,
your offer of marriage is going to
get rejected sometimes - perhaps often.
Your boss, your spouse, even the person
behind you in the supermarket checkout line
is occasionally going to think that you are doing it all wrong.
Don't take it personally.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We all have a social mask, right?
We put it on, we go out, put our

your name just happened to come up. -

I am the owner of my choices.
I am the source for the perspectives I choose to hold...

I will look into that mirror little bits at a time.

I know, to banish anger altogether
from one's breast is a difficult task.

The more you aim at it and make it a target,

to a cause greater than oneself.

and within knowledge everything is included;
your name, your identity, everything,
because this has been given to you by others -

This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality,
and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
- Sheri Rosenthal

Imagine...
- John Lennon

Happiness is a figment of the imagination.

you knew that humans were alone on this planet.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
- the movie Men in Black

All successful people men and women are big dreamers.
They imagine what their future could be,

that goal or purpose.

but asking to be changed in ways you can't imagine.

the objects of his creation
and is but a reflection of human frailty.

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships -
the ones that last -
are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.
You know, one day you look at the person
and you see something more than you did the night before.
Like a switch has been flicked somewhere.
And the person who was just a friend is...
suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.
- Dana Scully
