When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Monday Musings... Beginning

“The beginning is the most important part of the work.”

"There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...
not going all the way, and not starting.”

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
~Eleanor Roosevelt

     “The first step towards getting somewhere
is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.”
"The most sacred place dwells within our heart,
where dreams are born & secrets sleep,
a mystical refuge of darkness & light,
fear & conquest,
adventure & discovery,
challenge & transformation.
Our heart speaks for our soul every moment while we are alive.
Listen... as the whispering beat repeats:
be...gin, be...gin, be...gin.
It's really that simple. Just begin... again."
~Royce Addington
