There are many pieces to the puzzles called us, that's for sure. Oh what a feeling to finally discover and connect the various dots on our individual paths to wellville.

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"I have come to believe that the cultural obsession with the ‘famous’ undermines us in our efforts to honor ourselves.

I am much more interested in how day to day people struggle to find the light, then what it looks like inside of a star’s mansion. Like who really cares.

All too often, the famous are just over-compensating for their own insecurities and, even if they are worthy of our respect, there is something self-diminishing about this perpetual elevation of the ‘projected’ special one.

All that wondrous magnificence we embody gets put off to the side as we crank our necks to look up at someone we don’t even know.

This is shame perpetuating and self-limiting. The real star is staring at us in the mirror.

We must look inside for our own value. A whole galaxy of self-love awaits." ~Jeff Brown

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"When intensity and sensitivity are combined with idealism, as so often happens with bright children and adults, good things can happen because they can keenly see how things might be.

But this can also lead to frustration, disillusionment, and unhappiness. Sometimes this prompts perfectionism; other times it results in existential depression.

Through our relationships, we must provide understanding and nurturance so that they do not feel alone and helpless in a world that seems so paradoxical, arbitrary, and even absurd.

We can help nurture their idealism, and indeed we must if the world is to become a better place." ~James T. Webb

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Let's strengthen our understanding that a new and healthy food system IS health care.

We can create jobs for more small, intensive farmers in every community who can steward the land we live within when we shift disease-care dollars to healthy food dollars, thus saving money spent on chronic, preventable disease care--86% of all medical expenditures!!!

We're wasting over $1.8 trillion dollars every year alone in the US on preventable conditions!! Fresh produce builds health and saves both money and heartache.

Health insurance could pay for $X of produce each month and channel dollars into healthy communities.

Let's subsidize businesses that produce health-enhancing products, and remove subsidies from those that don't." ~Quote from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
