In clearing out paperwork from an unexplored file cabinet, came across notes taken a few years back. No mention of the book they reference, but several of them hit me between the eyes, so will share a few anyhow:
Making a success of living requires resilience, courage & awareness of the blessings that surround us. At any age.
~ Our most shattering experiences often turn into incredibly rich soil for opportunities & growth.
~ I believe in personal evolution rather than reinvention.
~ Our wisdom grows deeper the more easily it is accessed by appreciative others.
~ A keener perspective, trusted guides & a commitment to core practices sustained & strengthened my mother over all her years.
~ By never fearing an unknowable future, Mom was always open to the joy of each moment.
