“To forgive someone is to forget the transgression, to wipe the slate clean and begin anew.  Saying that you have forgiven someone while constantly reminding that person and others that you have is patently disingenuous or it is the sanctimonious refuge of the self deluded narcissist, neither is divine and both are equally destructive as well as an affront to the Almighty.”

“Love is more than just saying I love you, love is more than just a word uttered as a convenient means to an end.  Love is a complete way of life, it never ends and when sincerely expressed becomes unconditional.  Love is the master weavers tapestry whose individual threads combine to create a thing of strength and beauty, a bond that can never be broken.  Love is a practice lived, it can be seen in every action, it dwells in every dream, in every chaotic and still moment, it is uttered in silence and shouted from rooftops and once given it remains for eternity if betrayed then it never was.”

“I've noticed many times in my life people have the tendency in times of great despair to exclaim to the heavens "why me oh Lord why me!"

“It is ironic that the fear of failure and the fear of success both serve as a man’s excuse to remain stagnate in the pond of similitude.  Fear is a paralyzing force that convinces us only to feign an attempt because true effort may result in meeting the agony of defeat.  However, the reality is that often times we are but one action or effort away from achieving great things.”

“Giving up on something or walking away isn't always a sign of weakness but a measure of strength.  The trick is figuring out the reason why you are holding on.  Pride forces you to maintain the grip, the delusion of control while unconditional love allows you to set it free to find its own way, its own place in its own time.”

“My secret to happiness and to life is simple.   I maintain no illusions nor do I have any delusions about controlling what happens to me.  However, on the flip side I do have total control over how I choose to react to any given situation.  This realization ushers in the reality of ultimate control.  Once I understood that freedom, true freedom, comes from how I reacted it allowed me to break the bonds that held happiness at a distance.  My path became mine and mine alone and the yoke of responsibility became lighter because I now had control.  I was free to maneuver through, over and around the obstacles rather than being frustrated by them.  I was no longer a victim to be pitied instead I became the master of my destiny.”

“Anything is possible. Being blind causes me to take unusual steps in accomplishing things.  Step 1- doesn’t let them see your weakness, move and act with confidence.  Step 2- think outside the box, be steadfast in your belief that it can be done and there is a way to accomplish it in spite of a disability. Step 3- remember that if you can’t see the world, make the world see you. And step 4- accept, adopt, adapt and then advance.  There is no time for complaining, lamenting or feeling sorry for yourself, those are just excuses that prove an unwillingness to accept step four as reality.”
