Distance doesn’t separate people … Silence does. – Jeff Hood

The five stages – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance – are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost.

Instead of waking up every morning and shouting ‘God loves me, I have so much’, you start looking around and thinking ‘What I want now? What’s the next thing I need to be happy?’. So … you look and you look and you keep thinking you found it, but nothing works, and the reason that nothing … works, is because … that hole in your heart that you’re trying to fill is already filled … you just forgot.

Don’t … ever forget. Always remember how much you are loved, and stop, look and realize … that you already are happy. – My wider version of Lynette Scavo quote below

Your wedding is one of the best days of your life. Because it’s the day you realize ‘I finally have the thing I need to be happy’. And then you forget. So … then, what happens is, instead of waking up every morning and shouting ‘Somebody loves me’, you start looking around and thinking ‘What I want now? What’s the next thing I need to be happy?’. So … you look and you look and you keep thinking you found it, but nothing works, and the reason that nothing … works, is because … that hole in your heart that you’re trying to fill is already filled … you just forgot.

Don’t … ever forget. Always remember how much you wanted to be loved, and how much you are loved. And I think if you can do that, and it isn’t easy … you will stop looking and realize … you already are happy. – Lynette Scavo, Season 7, Desperate Housewives

No one will leave this earth uncle before he or she lives out their complete destiny. Those you think will die first, may die last and those you think will die last, may die first.

The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served. – Gordon B. Hinckley

————

In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present. – Lao Tzu

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous
Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. – Marianne Williamson
