Stay happy, healthy and safe- 34

Peace doesn’t mean to be in a place

where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.

It means to be in

the Midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

I questioned them

People try so hard to let go

of their negative behaviors and thoughts,

and it doesn’t work,

or it works only for a short time.

I didn’t let go of my negative thoughts;

I questioned them,

and then they let go of me,

and so did my addictions and depression.

~~Byron Katie

Try Try Again

‘Tis a lesson you should heed,
If at first you don’t succeed,
Try, try again;

Then your courage should appear,
For if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear
Try, try again;

Once or twice, though you should fail,
If you would at last prevail,
Try, try again;

If we strive, ’tis no disgrace
Though we do not win the race;
What should you do in the case?
Try, try again

If you find your task is hard,
Time will bring you your reward,
Try, try again

All that other folks can do,
Why, with patience, should not you?
Only keep this rule in view:
Try, try again.
