Quietness is important

"Never be afraid to sit awhile and think."
-Lorraine Hansbury
         In my family, we often have the radio or television on even when no one is watching or listening. I even listen to music when I am out walking. I read recently that God speaks to us during moments of silence. I am going to learn to live with some silence every day because quietness is important.
                                                         Author Susan Marie Schulhof

Move your body

"A meowing cat catches no mice."
-Yiddish Proverb
    Talking about exercise is not exercising. Reading about eating healthy, is not eating healthy. I have been walking every day for almost 100 days and it feels good to move my body.

Be Patient

"Patience is the companion of wisdom."
-St. Augustine
   Patience is an area of my life that I struggle with daily. I want changes to happen quickly. I am not a very patient person when it comes to new things. I tell myself often to be patient.

Think of ideas to improve your own life

"There's only one corner of the universe you can be 
certain of improving, and that's your own self."
-Aldous Huxley
     I often try to change other people around me, especially the ones that hurt me. There truly is only one person that I have the power to change and that's me and only me. I will think of ideas to improve my own life.

My church fills me with peace

"I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes-the finer things of life- would make you happy. My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense."
-Coretta Scott King
    I can't even describe what I feel from Good Friday and Easter Service at Willow Creek this weekend. Going to church fills me with peace.

Just being alive makes me happy

"My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and 
yet I am happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right?
-Charles Schultz
    I am looking for purpose, direction and meaning in my life yet while I search, just being alive makes me happy.
