Patience is not simply the ability to wait - it's how we behave while we're waiting.
I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you.
You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind.
Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don't see what goes on underground - as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don't see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.
I may not be where I want to be, but thank God I am not where I used to be.
