“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”—Maya Angelou—

I am about to turn seventy and I have been looking back on the eventful decade of my sixties. It occurs to me that this past decade, I have been occupied with overcoming the defeats of my fifties—of finding out who really lives behind this face.

Who lives behind your face? I’ll bet it is someone who has the courage to rise up quickly after falling. Getting up seems to make the falling less of a problem. Move on.

Someone who is down needs one of your smiles today

There’s a Home in Your Mind Where You Don’t Have to Share Your Toys

Quotes and Notes #251, July 12

“I live in my own little world. But it’s ok, they know me here.”—Lauren Myracle—

“The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”—Maya Angelou, “All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes.”—

We all need to go home at times. Our true home is a place inside our minds where we will not be bothered and where we don’t ever have to share our toys. Home is not a place, but a feeling of comfort within a set of circumstances. Creativity lives there, also.

Be selfish every now and then—spend some time at home.

Look in the mirror and share a smile with yourself. It will make you giggle.
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
