From here to there

I loaned a book to a friend last night, and before giving it to him, I pulled out a card that I used as a bookmark.  I frequently write things down on a card as I read - quotes I like, words to look up, references to other reading.  The text below was on this card   and it seems a fitting way to begin this journal:

Yes, the things that others  think, say or do will sometimes hurt you - until they don't anymore.  What will get you from here to there more quickly is total honesty - being willing to assert, acknowledge and declare exactly how you feel about a thing.  Say your truth - kindly but fully and completely.  Live your truth, gently, but totally and consistently.  Change your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings you new clarity.

Onward with a smile!
