REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM
“We focus on the negatives, losing ourselves in the ‘problem.’ We point to our unhappy circumstances to rationalize our negative feelings. This is the easy way out. It takes, after all, very little effort to feel victimized.”
— Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
Nothing and no one can make us a victim. We do it to ourselves when we allow external circumstances to hold power over us.
Although we have no control over what happens to us, we ALWAYS have a choice in how we respond. We hold our power when we accept complete responsibility for our thoughts, feelings and actions.
“A man may fall many times but he won’t be a failure until he says someone pushed him.”
— Elmer G. Letterman
“The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.”
— Steven Biko

“Silence is the mother of truth.”
-Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881)
Silence gives birth to so many wonderful things. It is from this space of infinite possibilities that all great works flow. It is from this realm of vast wisdom that we all learn and grow.

Daily Tarot: The Devil
Some days you just want to be self-indulgent, and today is one of those days. Put those feelings on the back burner while at work or out in public. After the serious part of the day is over, the danger actually increases for you. Don’t overindulge and make yourself sick or regretful. Sometimes too much of a good thing is too much, and you want to start tomorrow feeling good.
