Daily Good: Two Words That Can Change a Life

Words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean. Little audible links, they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes.

Theodore Dreiser –

Two Words That Can Change a Life

“As I walked into the parking lot, I spotted the woman returning her shopping cart, and I remembered something in my purse that could help her in a different but hopefully profound way. It wasn’t a handful of cash or a lead on a job for her husband, but maybe — just maybe — it would make her life better. My heart pounded as I approached the woman. “Excuse me,” I said, my voice trembling a bit. “I couldn’t help overhearing what you said to the cashier. It sounds like you’re going through a really hard time right now. I’m so sorry. I’d like to give you something.” And I handed her a business-sized card. When the woman read the card’s only two words, she began to cry. And through her tears, she said, “You have no idea how much this means to me.”” Cheryl Rice shares more in this piece about the two simple words that touched her life and then rippled out to touch many others. { read more }

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”
— Aldous Huxley

What was your peak experience of this past week? What was your most challenging experience?

Stepping back to review your week can offer many insights. Normally we can’t see the forest for the trees. Now back away and see the whole forest. Review your week. Now write a short summary — whatever comes to mind for you. If action is required, plan how you will accomplish it in the next week.

“Ask the experienced rather than the learned.”
— Arabic proverb

“Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.”
— Franklin P. Jones

Daily Wisdom
November 12, 2020


“The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.”

-Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

Moderation in our temperament is essential to our health and well-being. It is exhausting going from euphoria when something goes right to depression when something goes wrong. Our middle ground here comes from knowing that external forces do not influence our emotions. We decide how to react, we can choose to accept that we really are okay no matter how things go.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.
