Not Every Action Can Be Perfect

"As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect. Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. Making mistakes, getting it almost right, and experimenting to see what happens are all part of the process of eventually getting it right."

"The problem is the average person isn’t tuned in to lifelong learning, or going to seminars and so forth. If the information is not on television, and it’s not in the movies they watch, and it’s not in the few books that they buy, they don’t get it."

Where Will You Be Tomorrow

"You are today where your thoughts have brought you; 
you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you."

-- James Allen

"Life is an ongoing process, and most of us meet something at almost every turn we wish were different. But just because something is not turning out the way we want, doesn't mean it won't. And when we insist on calling it good, when we make up our minds that no matter what, we're going to see it as a blessing, then our minds start working overtime to prove us right. Magical things tend to happen and that which we labeled as a blessing, more often than not, turns out to be one."

--Kate Nowak, author
May You Be Blessed

"We determine whether something will be a blessing or a curse by the way we choose to see it."

It reminds me, in a way, of the produgal son who found comfort and love upon returning home. While we don't have to stray and hit bottom in life, it is good to know that we can wander and exhaust life's trials and journeys and yet have some home base where love, support, comfort, and calm exists."
