Get Wise Wednesday: Stop Worrying



Time spent on worrying becomes time wasted, which could have been used on enjoying life.

What do you think about this quote? Do you feel like the words are truthful and apply to your life?


Courage is…

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.”

―Mary Anne Radmacher 


Mary Anne Radmacher, a writer and an artist, conducts workshops on living a full, creative, balanced life, teaches Internet writing seminars. Since she was a young girl, she has used her writing to explore symbols and find meaning. Through her writing, she devoted most of her life to communicating that there is no failure. She emphasizes  there’s only practice, discovering ways that don’t feel successful on the way to discovering what success looks and feels like for the individual. Those who rarely have the courage, as Radmacher says, inspire yourself! And in doing so, inspire others.

Look toward the Open Doors


“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”

– Helen Keller

We tend to dwell on the disappointments in life rather than imagine that something better can come along. We should choose not to stare at the closed door but focus on the open doors because there lies a path of opportunities for us that we might not have realized.

Discover Your Strength

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”

– Masaru Emoto, The Secret Life Of Water

Letter Writing in the Age of Technology

Hannah Brencher, founder of a global initiative, The World Needs More Love Letters, shares how the art of writing letters can help someone who might be suffering from depression or loneliness. Writing letters to her mother was a way of finding solace in Hannah’s own time of hardship and depression. When she moved to New York City, she began tucking letters for strangers – just like the kinds that her mother used to write to her – all over the city in cafes, libraries, and even the U.N. She began blogging about her letters and soon received responses from readers, some of whom were going through rough times, requesting that she write them letters as well. This was the beginning of her organization, The World Needs More Love Letters.

“These are the kinds of stories that convinced me that letter-writing will never again need to flip back her hair and talk about efficiency, because she is an art form now, all the parts of her, the signing, the scripting, the mailing, the doodles in the margins.”

Be inspired by this video and take the time to write a letter to a loved one today!

Dare to Dream

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.”

Genuine Appreciation

“An affectionate disposition not only makes the mind more peaceful and calm, but it affects our body in a positive way too. On the other hand, hatred, jealousy and fear upset our peace of mind, make us agitated and affect our body adversely. Even our body needs peace of mind and is not suited to agitation. This shows that an appreciation for peace of mind is in our blood.”

-Dalai Lama XIV

Happiness is an Attitude

“Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.”

– Francesca Reigler
