Meditation Meme

These are the thoughts going through my head at any given time (and sometimes the thoughts of others). As I move throughout my day, I often come up with things that I need to work on in my life. Just as I stumble on important ideas or observations at the right time, maybe you are here at this moment, to read just the right phrase to help you in your day. 

My quotes from others may not always be accurate. I’m OK with that because the words I post here are appropriate for me at the time I found them.  Hopefully you won’t mind either because the Truth is found in the message, not the messenger.
