“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

~ John Lubbock

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones that you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbour, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

~ Bruce Lee (at Downtown Cooperstown, NY)

“All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.”

~ L.M. Montgomery (at Little Pond)

“Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist —- a master —- can look at an old woman, portray her exactly as she is…and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be…and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body.”

~ Robert A. Heinlein (at Harry’s Corner Shop)

“Our thoughts, our feelings, our dreams, our ideas are physical in the universe.”

This belief that thought can bring about physical change in the world is not hokus pokus, mumbo jumbo, new age nonsense, or a new idea. 

As a RN in an oncology unit I have personally witnessed how thought can bring about real physical change, both negative and positive. I’ve seen patients who “accept their fate” with their diagnosis and calmly fade within weeks. But I’ve also seen patients will an indomitable spirit to fight and say they are not done yet and walk out free from cancer.

So this candle is for everyone. It’s for my friend’s mother. It’s for my friend’s father. It’s for @instafraner’s boy, Diego. It’s for each and every patient that we care for in my unit. It’s for all the kids my friend cares for in her Pediatric Cancer unit.

If you’d like, use this candle for someone you know affected by cancer and leave a comment for them. 

Positive thought can bring about positive physical change! 🙏 (at Henry’s Public)

“One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, “I love you,” “I’m sorry,” “I appreciate you,” “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.”
