    This was on our intranet this morning. I hadn't seen it before, but it was particularly apt on a boring grey Monday with autumn rain coming down in buckets:

    “Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night”

    Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

    I gotta remember this one. I get/am SO angry about injustice in my workplace.

    That Buddha was a really smart guy.

    That quote has helped me a lot, even righteous anger and indignation hurt us, it's hard to let go of at times.

    I read this on the internet recently, it may have been here or Facebook, who knows . . .

    "Whether you think you can or you think you can't--you're right."--Henry Ford (a fellow Michigander!)

    DD has been driving me up a tree lately with the negative self-talk: "i can't do this, I can't do that . . . I'm a baby! I'm too little! I'm too weird!" Henry Ford's quote really struck me. I sat down with DD and had a little chat about negative and positive self-talk. And then I had her memorize this quote. And then I had her repeat some positive self-talk . . . hoping, hoping, hoping some of this sticks with her.

    I think it will stick with her, but you may need to repeat it every day for several years!
