“But I also say this: 
that light is an invitation to happiness, 
and that happiness, when it's done right, 
is a kind of holiness, palpable and redemptive. ” 
― Mary Oliver

"If you're feeling frightened 
about what comes next... don't.
Embrace the uncertainty.  
Allow it to lead you places. 
Be brave as it challenges you 
to exercise both your heart and your mind
to create your own path towards happiness.
Don't waste time with regret. 
Spin wildly into your next action.
Enjoy the present, each moment as it comes,
because you'll never get another one quite like it.
And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost,
simply take a breath and start over.  
Retrace your steps 
and go back to the purest place in your heart,
where your hope lives. You'll find your way again."
~> Julia Brown, Everwood

"A collaboration can begin spontaneously, 
with what seems like a wild thought. 
Once that thought is shared with another person, 
it doesn't seem so crazy, & actually turns into something great. 
So I would say to someone who would like to collaborate, 
make your ideas known! 
Share your ideas 
with that person with whom you would like to work. 
You never know what might happen! 
Brainstorm, then outline your core objectives, 
and set the plan into action.  
Listen to one another and have fun!"
words of encouragement from Heather Smith Jones     
interviewed by Stephanie Levy in Creative Courage e-course
