Quotes to remember

"So many feel lethargic , unmotivated , or worn out in this hemisphere.
We are really not made to rocket straight through Winter ,
ablaze with energy .
Look at nature .
The ground , the plants , the animals are deep at rest .
This is the natural way of things .
Spend some time with the long nights , the moon , solitude ,
the bare earth , stillness .
Be easier on yourself ..
~ Victoria Erickson ~

-Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.”

Till the right action arises by itself?”
