Pushing and expanding our boundaries allows us to discover things, accomplish things, and to gain strength.

At times, our boundaries will involve a fence and we must hesitate while we determine if the fence is protecting us or confining us. We realize that we can go through, over, under, or around the fence—but do we need to examine the consequences?

A New Chance Every Day

Quotes and Notes #101, February 11

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on.”–Robert Frost

Every day somebody gets another chance to get it right—or keep it right. That person may as well be you. Concentrate today on the little things that please you. Write a poem in your head and sing it to yourself. Share a pleasantry with the lady at the check-out counter who is also dealing with her feelings.
