With a heavy load and a long journey

In life you can never be too kind or too fair; everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load. When you go through your day expressing kindness and courtesy to all you meet, you leave behind a feeling of warmth and good cheer, and you help alleviate the burdens everyone is struggling with.”

“Reputation is what others think of us; character is what we know of us. When you spend a lot of energy trying to repair a few moments of time that destroyed the view others once had of you, or a judgement someone made of you, true or not, then you must ask yourself, why take on the problem when it is really them?”

― Tambré Bryant – Strategic Intervention Life Coach

“Do we follow the road life’s placed before us?

A path fraught with struggle and sacrifice,
Yet one whose outcome places us in destiny’s arms.”

― Christopher Babson, Breakout Presentations
