    The words are few but their effect is phenomenal.
    Everyone has those words that get them through tough times....which remind them to dust their knees get up ... And keep going...


    I have too many but here's just one of them...

    "things we lose have a way of coming back to us...though it may not always be in the way we imagine"

    Great question, I have a lot of quotes I like. I read this one last night and it really resonated with me.

    Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

    Dont let the bastards grind you down.

    One of my favourite sayings in life. In this context, I use the word bastards to describe mental health issues in general.

    The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

    The dreams of the future are better than the history of the past

    Thomas Jefferson said "I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past" so I corrupted that slightly and tattooed on my arm to remind me every time I see it. I still like it.
