"Be master of mind rather than mastered by mind." - Zen Proverb Be headstrong. Know what you want and don't let anyone, even yourself, convince you otherwise. I LOVE the many interpretations that come from these 9 magical words.
"Don't Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering." ~ Don Miguel Ruiz
