“Worry is worthless. It can't change the past or control the future. It only spoils the moment.”
Darrin Patrick

Alexandra Elle
“Love your neighbor, even the ones who do not show you the same courtesy. You can’t expect to receive love if you’re selective and not really willing to give it. What you put into the world, you will indeed get back, even if it’s not from the person you’re expecting it to be.”
Alexandra Elle, Words from a Wanderer

“The things we don’t stress tend to turn out best. Trust and let go.”
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Randy Pausch
“Years ago, I dated a lovely young woman who was a few thousand dollars in debt. She was completely stressed out about this. Every month, more interest would be added to her debts.
To deal with her stress, she would go every Tuesday night to a meditation and yoga class. This was her one free night, and she said it seemed to be helping her. She would breathe in, imagining that she was finding ways to deal with her debts. She would breathe out, telling herself that her money problems would one day be behind her.
It went on like this, Tuesday after Tuesday.
Finally, one day I looked through her finances with her. I figured out that if she spent four or five months working a part-time job on Tuesday nights, she could actually pay off all the money she owed.
I told her I had nothing against yoga or meditation. But I did think its always best to try to treat the disease first. Her symptoms were stress and anxiety. Her disease was the money she owed.
"Why don't you get a job on Tuesday nights and skip yoga for a while?" I suggested.
This was something of a revelation to her. And she took my advice. She became a Tuesday-night waitress and soon enough paid off her debts. After that, she could go back to yoga and really breathe easier.”
Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

“If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what you’re needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person.”
Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Letters from a Stoic
