There is a poster leaning against my wall. It is a recently white wall; I just took down two posters that have been up for years. Perfectly nice posters, but it was time for a change. There is something I love about open, white walls. Something cliched about new beginnings and the promise of hope....

This new poster is supposed to be "me". How in the world I think I am going to capture all of me, all of my complicated being, on one poster is beyond me, but I'm trying. 

It needs more, but I'm not quite sure what that more is.

Here is what it holds so far:


At least we live tonight.
Bring light where you see darkness, bring freedom where there is fear, and begin to heal.
Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
In the midst of winter, I discovered that there was in me an invincible summer.
Nothing worthwhile is achieved overnight.
Don’t count your owls before they are delivered.
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
It’s just enough to find a way to open up again and learn to taste all the beauty that’s inside.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
