"I guess this falls into the "take what works, discard the rest" - there's some weird stuff in here (why parenting tips? shouldn't that be a different book?), some odd metaphors, and some useful tips. Glad it was a library loan vs. a purchase." 4 hours, 36 min ago

Matthew McConaughey
“We all step in shit from time to time. We hit roadblocks, we fuck up, we get fucked, we get sick, we don’t get what we want, we cross thousands of “could have done better”s and “wish that wouldn’t have happened”s in life. Stepping in shit is inevitable, so let’s either see it as good luck, or figure out how to do it less often.”
Matthew McConaughey, Greenlights

Mindy Kaling
“Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled. Listen to no one except the two smartest and kindest adults you know, and that doesn't always mean your parents. If you do that, you will be fine.”
Mindy Kaling, Why Not Me?

Pema Chödrön
“What causes misery is always trying to get away from the facts of life, always trying to avoid pain and seek happiness—this sense of ours that there could be lasting security and happiness available to us if we could only do the right thing.”
Pema Chödrön, The Pocket Pema Chodron

Jay Shetty
“Negativity is a trait, not someone’s identity. A person’s true nature can be obscured by clouds, but, like the sun, it is always there. And clouds can overcome any of us. We have to understand this when we deal with people who exude negative energy. Just like we wouldn’t want someone to judge us by our worst moments, we must be careful not to do that to others. When someone hurts you, it’s because they’re hurt. Their hurt is simply spilling over. They need help. And as the Dalai Lama says, “If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.”
Jay Shetty, Think Like a Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day

Pema Chödrön
“MY teacher Trungpa Rinpoche encouraged us to lead our lives as an experiment, a suggestion that has been very important to me.”
Pema Chödrön, The Pocket Pema Chodron
