Pain reveals; disappointments plant trigger of actions.
Fear controls; ignorance deceives.
Anger torments; silence keeps.
Misunderstanding divides; love joins.
Laughter starts; deception suspects.
Frowning cautions; sorrow remembers.
Purposefulness moves; idleness wastes.
When you live in comfort, ponder.
When you live in pain, take lessons.

When life goes down, envision the height and dare to get there with tenacity.
Life is how you take and manage things. Be a manager of things or things shall be your manager”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“To begin by always thinking of love as an action rather than a feeling is one way in which anyone using the word in this manner automatically assumes accountability and responsibility. We are often taught we have no control over our "feelings." Yet most of us accept that we choose our actions, that intention and will inform what we do. We also accept that our actions have consequences. To think of actions shaping feelings is one way we rid ourselves of conventionally accepted assumptions such as that parents love their children, or that one simply "falls" in love without exercising will or choice, that there are such things as "crimes of passion," i.e. he killed her because he loved her so much. If we were constantly remembering that love is as love does, we would not use the word in a manner that devalues and degrades its meaning.”
bell hooks

“You can’t truly believe that you can stumble, & that I won’t go my separate way because of a feeling.

I’ve walked away from people that I used to love with my whole being. & I’ve survived.

You can’t truly believe that a woman that loves so passionately will lose sleep second guessing your intentions.

You can’t truly believe that love is strong enough to hold something that’s no longer worthwhile, together.

You can’t truly believe that this sentiment can be used as barbwire to keep me from running.

Believe me when I tell you that no matter what’s going on inside my heart...

I’m known for leaving. I’m known for walking into the sunset & never turning back.”
Yadira Pantoja

“I always knew a good man should do no bad deeds, but it never occurred to me that a good man must do good deeds. He cannot just sit back and do nothing. He cannot just relax and let things happen around him. He must act or his faith is meaningless, mere words or thoughts.”
Aleksandra Layland, Ansgar: The Struggle of a People. The Triumph of the Heart.

“The dream provides inspiration and motivation. The goal generates drive and momentum. But daily effort on the details is the fuel that gets you to your dream.”

“...people can say all kinds of things without ever opening their mouths...”
Noah Hawley, Before the Fall

“If you stumble, you get back up. If you fall off the wagon, you have the next go at it. And then the next. And the next. And the next.”

“Until this day you confuse me. Yet your actions speak louder than the words you decide to keep to yourself... they give me the message that I've been curiously searching for...& it's tragic in it's own way, that things fell apart as quickly as they came together... I know I made a mess of things, but please believe... that for the first time, in a long time... my intenstions were sincere.”
Yadira Pantoja

“When you resolve to do a thing, you make a decision to act, to go all the way, come hell or high water. It’s something you’re committed to accomplish, having firmly decided to see it through to the end.”

“There is always a way forward if the responsible parties are willing to act.”
