The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
I’m confused. Decision making is difficult.
Sometimes there are no right or wrong answers.
Finding a solution to a predicament creates different scenarios, each making perfect sense. The tricky part is choosing the right one.
Inspiring words about contentment are whirling around in my brain.
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not.
Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re real quite lucky.
At some point, you gotta let go, and sit still, and allow contentment to come to you.
~Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.
But I’m also hearing words urging me to leap out of my comfort zone and take chances.
If you dare nothing,
then when the day is over,
nothing is all you will have gained.
~Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book
A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.
Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
But he’d learned long ago that a life lived without risks pretty much wasn’t worth living. Life rewarded courage, even when that first step was taken neck-deep in fear.
~Tamera Alexander, Within My Heart
Maybe I’ll spend time pondering Picasso’s words and see what transpires.
Everything you can imagine is real.
