Wise Words for Daily Living

Maintain your integrity even when it seems tough. As my boyfriend says, "Keep it clean. Keep it real." Even when it might require sucking it up, error on the side of right and watch the positive come your way.

Meditate daily and clear your mind before you start the day. Begin with the thought it will be great. Then if it's not so great at least you felt great for a few minutes or hours.

There is no difference between the high road and the road to justice. Staying on higher ground means that the rest will work itself out.

Anger is designed to keep you from being passive. Certain situations require some anger be wrought on the source. Sometimes people deserve a little heat be put to their actions. 

Forgiveness is not for the other person -- forgiveness is for you. Harboring anger and resentment only hurts you.

Forgiveness is not the same as forgetting. Some things we can forgive but should not be forgotten. Your takeaway should the lessons learned ... so forgive but don't forget.

Intelligent people often care more than average, which is because intelligent people know the difference between right and wrong.

Sometimes you just have to let it go ...

Love yourself first and then let love into your life. When you love yourself than you can respect yourself and when you can respect yourself others will respect you, too.

Set standards and hold them. When your intention to hold those standards is made clear, people will understand that if they walk over the line consequences will result.

Don't let other people tell you who you are what you want. You have to know who you are. Other people don't have the right to define you.
