You are ready and able 
to do beautiful things in this world,

turn you against your playful heart.

Investing in yourself is the best investment 
you will ever make. 
It will not only improve your life, 
it will improve the lives of all those around you.

until he is a happy, healthy,

Quotes of the day... 1/11/16

And now here is my secret, 
a very simple secret: It is only 
with the heart that one can see rightly; 
what is essential is invisible to the eye.
     ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 

Ask yourself what is really important,
and then have the courage and focus
to build your life around that answer.

Enjoy your life.
It improves the lives 
of everyone around you.

The Empty Bench ~ by, Christy Ducharme


     He came across an empty bench in the woods. It had been a tiring hike thus far and he was thankful for the respite. The bench was warm to the touch and he wondered how long it had been since the previous occupant left. He wondered who they were and how their day was and sent a silent thanks for the warmth they left behind.
     It was kind of beautiful, he thought, how the world teetered in this constant balance of giving and receiving. Take too much and the world topples one way, but give too much and you run the risk of losing yourself entirely.
     With this thought in mind the man stood and continued his trek through the woods, hoping all the while that he left enough warmth for whoever was to come next.
