For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for the Creator, there is no poverty.-Rainer Maria Rilke

So many times I am guilty of blaming others when I am really to blame. I think the first step to change is realizing that.

The next step is to catch yourself doing it.
Then consciously try to change your behavior when you catch yourself doing it.
Then and only then will it become a part of who you are.
You will bloom.
I guess that this quote also says is that you yourself can decide and paint your picture or write your own poem about what you want your life to be like. No one else can do that for you.

You must write your own story, and when you do, you will not be in poverty you will be in the richness of life - wherever you are.
