Beautiful quote from Forrest Gump himself . . . . . 

 “I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floatin’ around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happenin’ at the same time. I miss you Jenny. If there’s anything you need. I won’t be far away.”

A quote from Dr. Seuss

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened”

I must keep that in mind. I wish I had lived more in the moment. Working at doing that with the time left for me.

A quote – For Your Consideration 

Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work.”

Gordon B. Hinckley

President Hinckley was known, even at the age of 95, as a tireless leader who always put in a full day at the office and traveled extensively around the world to mix with Church members, now numbering nearly 13 million in 171 nations.

Purpose – for your consideration 

It is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor. 

A quote about life’s struggles and other things – for your consideration 

“​We all make mistakes, have struggles and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here now with the power to shape your day and your future.”     Steve Maraboli

how much should I give back? 

I’ve read or heard this formula, a few times. 

168 hours in a week.  56 hours sleeping, 56 hours working, 56 hours left. 10% of the left over time is 5.6 hours per week.  So, 5.6 hours a week dedicated to giving back. 

I found this quote a few minutes ago. I like quotes. Sometimes they help, maybe sometimes they don’t. Anyway, here it is. 

“If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you’ll end up not doing nothing for nobody.” ~ Malcom Bane

From Marianne Williamson  . . . . . 

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

From Isaiah  . . . . .  

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


Isaiah 40:31 

“​Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
