Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

smile your biggest smile, and cheer on God's music.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The big question is whether you are going to be able
to say a hearty yes to your adventure.

a man dreaming I was a butterfly,

the health, that I am blessed with today,
regardless of what I had yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude,
I can be grateful each day for the gift of life itself.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The success of love is in the loving -
it is not in the result of loving.
Of course it is natural in love

does not determine the value of what we have done.
- Mother Teresa

We are tied to the ocean.
And when we go back to the sea,

How you respond to the challenge in the second half
will determine what you become after the game,
whether you are a winner or a loser.

That's what learning is, after all;

to apply to other games.
Losing, in a curious way, is winning.

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You can learn how to let go of the past.
Whether you have experienced a break up

whether you have lost a job.
Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

or peace an interlude during war.

At the beginning, we are in relationship
because we are attracted to the other person -

If we don't feel appreciated, we don't feel loved.

Anger and Danger are intimately intertwined.
An angry person is a dangerous person,
whether that person crosses our path
or whether the angry person is ourself.

when we believe we are in danger -
we tend to exhibit anger as well as fear.
We look for someone to blame for the dangerous situation,
and direct our anger toward them.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
