Our Weekly Message for October 6, 2004

Greetings special friends,

Well, you can certainly tell that we are in the grips of fall. However, the weather sometimes gets even more predictable. Make sure to visit www.weather.com for the latest forecast for your next football game or outing this weekend.

Here are some thoughts for the day:
“It often takes more courage to change one’s opinion than to stick to it.”
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799) physicist and philosopher
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
Jim Ryun, olympic medalist and politician
“If my hands are fully occupied in holding on to something, I can neither give nor receive.” Dorothee Soelle (1929-2003) theologian and writer
“Time is nature’s way of keeping everything from happening at once.”
author unknown

Everyone has a value in life; not only to others but for yourself. Below is a special passage on your self worth. Make sure to love yourself, so that you can also love others.

Have a wonderful week, and, as always, please keep in touch.

Do Not Undermine Your Worth

Do not undermine your worth
by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
that each of us is special.

Do not set your goals
by what other people deem important.
Only you know
what is best for you.

Do not take for granted
the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them,
life is meaningless.

Do not let your life
slip through your fingers
by living in the past
nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
you live all the days of your life.

Do not give up
when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over
until the moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread
that binds us to each other.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
that we learn how to be brave.

Do not shut love out of your life
by saying it is impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive love
is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
is to hold it too tightly.

Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams
is to be without hope;
To be without hope
is to be without purpose.

Do not run through life
so fast that you forget
not only where you have been,
but also where you are going.

Life is not a race,
but a journey
to be savored
each step of the way.
