"Be selective in your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right. If you don't have peace, it isn't because someone took it from you; you gave it away. You cannot control what happened to you, but you can control what happens in you."

~~John Maxwell

"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going." ~ Beverly Sills

The only way for people to be truly happy is to align with their essence, which is LOVE…still they seek love, as if it were an elusive treasure outside of themselves, to make them feel validated and complete…they cannot find it outside until they have found it within.
