Weekly Words To Inspire

This is the last full weekend of August. Kids are starting back to school. Football has begun. Fantasy teams have been drafted. Summer is coming to a close. I feel, for me, it has been another successful summer.
I was lucky enough to run the "Color Me Rad' race on Saturday with a great group of girls.  It was a fun run where color is thrown on you.  I've never taken such a colorful shower! I highly recommend a color run if one is near you.  

Have a marvelous week!

Come to the edge, he said. They said : We are afraid. Come to the edge, he said.  They came. He pushed them and they flew.
- Guillaume Apollinaire

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness.  You willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength. 
August Wilson 

It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more 'manhood' to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex.  Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.
Alex Karras
Our dependency makes slaves out of us, especially if this dependency is a dependency of our self-esteem.  If you need encouragement, praise, pats on the back from everybody, then you make everybody your judge.
- Unknown

For a good friend who recently delivered a baby boy...
Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.
William MacNeile Dixon

Take it easy.
