quote du jour ~merton – you do not need to know…

You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.

quote du jour ~williamson – no matter what…

No matter what is happening in our lives, we choose how we wish to think about it. And the greatest gift we give ourselves is often our willingness to change our minds. Despite what might seem to be the saddest and most intractable  situation, we have the power to believe that something else is possible, that things can change, that a miracle can happen.

~Marianne Williamson, The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles
