Quotable Thursday

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

-Albus Dumbledore





It’s all in how we see it

The world as seen through five-year-old eyes…


Oh, that I would have the same eyes.  The eyes to see what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable– everyday.

Iona Abbey 

Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that, but simply growth.  We are happy when we are growing.

-William Butler Yeats



Shane Koyczan. My new hero.

I was just introduced to the awesome TED talk called the bullied and beautiful… by Shane Koyczan.  One of the best spent 12 minutes of my life (actually, more- I’ve watched it 4 times already).

“…and if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer, because there’s something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit…”

Thank you, Shane, for your powerful words and your beautiful heart.
