“Energy is contagious. You will never rise any higher than the company you keep. Surround yourself with those who inspire you and let go of those who drag you down.” – Damien Echols
“People inspire you, or they drain you. PICK THEM WISELY.” – Hans F. Hasen
“Stay low, stay quiet, keep it simple, don’t expect too much, enjoy what you have.”
“It is never too late to take an inventory of your life and change the things that no longer serve you. If there are things you have been hanging on to that are not useful and deprive you of your freedom, find the courage to let them go. An overloaded boat is easily capsized by wind and waves. Lighten your load and your boat will travel more quickly and safely. Then you can offer the precious gift of freedom and space to yourself and loved ones, but only if it is truly there in your own heart.”
-Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet.
