Weekend Wisdom 23


What if you began to expect the best from any situation?

Isn’t it possible that you could write

new chapters in your life with happy endings?

Suspend your disbelief?

Take a leap of faith?

After all, what have you got to lose

but misery and lack?

~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

Weekend Wisdom 20

The entrepreneur in us

sees opportunity everywhere we look,

but many people see only problems

everywhere they look.

The entrepreneur in us is more concerned

with discriminating between opportunities

than he or she is with failing to see the opportunities.

~ Michael Gerber

Weekend Wisdom 19

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes,

then you are making new things, trying new things,

learning, living, pushing yourself,

changing yourself, changing your world.

You’re doing things you’ve never done before,

and more importantly,

you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself.

Make New Mistakes.

Make glorious, amazing mistakes.

Make mistakes no one’s ever made before.

Don’t freeze, don’t stop,

don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or isn’t perfect,

whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

Weekend Wisdom 16

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, fabulous?’

Actually, who are you not to be? […]

We are all meant to shine, as children do. […]

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,

our presence automatically liberates others.

– Marianne Williamson
