Afraid? Insecure? Here’s The Answer…

Quotes and Notes #348, October 18

Remember, you are the only you there is

Remember, you are the only you there is

“Speak in French when you can’t think of the English for a thing—
Turn your toes out when you walk—
And remember who you are!”—Lewis Carroll, “Through the Looking Glass”—

Today’s key word is “remember”
Remember when people hurt you
Remember when you feel insecure
Remember when you feel like nobody loves you
Remember when you are overcome by fear
Remember all of the things that make you feel bad about yourself
And then, after all of that—REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE—

Remember that you are Wonder Woman, Superman, Mighty Mouse—remember that you, and you alone control your attitude. This makes you all-powerful. Remember that you are the only you in the world and if they don’t like it they can…well, you get the message.

Share a smile with everyone who has insecurities—that’s everyone.
Everything is going to be all right.

John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Don’t Forget the Beauty…

Quotes and Notes #197, May 25

“Beauty exists not in what is seen and remembered, but in what is felt and never forgotten.”—Johnathan Jena—

“How did that make you feel?” He asked.
He was an old soldier. I was young.
I thought about it and said, “It made me feel like someone really cared about me and wanted to give me something to remember.”

“That’s good.” He replied. “That’s what I meant for it to do.”
He has been gone for years, now. But I haven’t forgotten.

And he always had a bright smile for me. I will never forget that
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz
“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Never forget the beauty.

Never forget the beauty.

“If You Can Remember Me…”

Quotes and Notes #195, May 23

“There is no death, daughter. People die only when we forget them,’ my mother explained shortly before she left me. ‘If you can remember me, I will be with you always.”—Isabel Allende, “Eva Luna”

And so we remember. We remember those who came back and those who didn’t. We remember those who endured the heat in the desert, mud in the rice paddies, and cold in Korea. We remember those who entered the Battle of the Bulge to stay, to come home on a train full of wounded, or to return with a memory. We remember those who were gassed in France, or hit by a minie ball in Gettysburg.

We remember those with rags on their feet in the middle of winter before crossing the Delaware.

And for now, remember with a smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz
