We felt at the time of the initial offer that there was no way they'd be able to do it as cheaply as we do it ourselves, but out of fairness we went through the process and let them work the figures out,
Contrary to what many people think, there is no such thing as an unimportant broken agreement. There may be bigger external consequences for breaking some agreements than othersbut there are no broken agreements without a price.
Before (Parks) passed we decided this would be an opportunity to honor any and everybody, known and unknown. We are going to pay more attention to unsung heroes and average participants of the boycott.
In our ludicrous efforts to 'change' and be perfect, we try to fashion a perfect world for ourselves. We start to imagine that we are actually in control of our world, which is further from reality than an all-parrot moon landing. The universe, our universe, is out of our control. We live on a speck drifting around in an infinite vacuum with countless trillions of other specks. Our world is in a perpetual state of perfect chaos and entropy, with everything falling apart and dying and being born haphazardly. Meanwhile, we try to make life as neat and clean and orderly as a computer research facility, when in fact it is more like a junkyard. It always has been, and it always will be, no matter how much fussing and sweating and striving we do to make it different.
During the four years that it took to resolve this case we never wavered in our unflagging commitment to publicly demonstrate the we offer excellent services to our clients, we treat our chiropractors fairly and we make available to patients quality care at an affordable price. We are glad to see resolution.
All the concepts about stepping out of your comfort zone mean nothing until you decide that your essential purpose, vision and goals are more important than your self-imposed limitations.
Human beings have used their incredible abilities to develop a staggering array of limiting beliefs, justifications and excuses for every occasion. What a waste
I think Chairman Davis has said he would always prefer that baseball strengthens its own policies and not leave it to Congress to legislate. In the absence of any action, he believes Congress is ready to move forward.
The payoffs for choosing drama as a way to handle the events of your life are myriad. How about temporarily satisfying, long, go-nowhere conversations that serve to lower the intelligence level of all involved
Saying that positive thinking usually doesnt work is such heresy that I may be unceremoniously drummed out of the personal development field. And, it is mostly true.
Our culture tends to label everybody and everything either a success or a failure, a winner or a loser. I often wonder how the one winner and 58,000 losers in the Boston Marathon feel about that I can't imagine even one of those runners thinking of himself as a loser. I believe that for every one of them, to run the race well is to succeed.
Responsibility is not the Truth with a capital T. Its a point of view which I can choose to take regarding all of the events in my life. If I choose to approach life from the responsible point of view, it means giving up my excuses, my avoidances, all the manipulative games I play when I feel like a victim. In return, what I gain is freedom, clarity, and the empowering experience of being in control and in charge of my life.
Being in resistance to 'what is'fighting gravity all the way downis what makes life brutally demanding. Life is naturally much easier than we make it. Trees grow, flowers bloom, birds fly, sloths don't seem to do a hell of a lot, and I assume that platypuses do platypussy things all without resistance to what is. All species are designed to live that way without resistance. Except humans. We complicate things and make life hard for ourselves by resisting life as it is. We try to change things over which we have no control. We want gravity to be different, for the immutable rules that govern our existence to somehow be suspended for us.
The greatest love of all is happening to me... So goes the popular song. It's a great song. It speaks to the heart, and deeply. It strikes powerfully to uplift the human spirit, at the quest for self-love and self-esteem, the pride in being alive that each of us is entitled to experience simply by being born a human being.
People who live from abundance feel that there is more than enough of everything in the world to go around. More than enough money, food, work, material things, more than enough love. Why do they feel that way Because they see that they themselves are eno
The way I feel about it is if it happened to me, I wish America opened their heart to me.
Every time you break an agreement you lose self-esteem, self-respect and self-confidence, and you lose other people's trust in you. Every time you keep an agreement you increase these same valuable assets accordingly. It is just the way things are.
I see my life as a part of the earth, a patch of ground to be cultivated. This field I have chosen to call joy. What grows in the field will be some grasses called happiness, and some called anguish, sadness, and disappointment. They are not permanent. They grow, wither and die. But the field of my being remains joyful.
. if we accept the reality that life is difficult, demanding and often painful, then the day-to-day living of it is no longer so onerous. In accepting life as it really is, we transcend it. Or, as they say on Wall Street, The market has already discounted the bad news.
If happiness is the only prize we seek in life, then we will be guaranteed to spend a good part of our lives deep in disappointment, focused on a very small prize indeed.
Human beings are complicated, yet from our experience of working with hundreds of thousands of people, weve learned that most or even all of the average persons neuroses and hang-ups disappear when they start giving and serving others.
You may be giving money to people who bribe officials and kill activists.

The potential for abuse with these contracts is, and has been, a concern.
This would interfere with employer-employee relationships, and we are always going to work to preserve the rights that surround that relationship. We are going to tell our lobbying team to work to defeat any bill that has to do with this.
we continue to spend fortunes on an stupefying array of distractions supposedly designed to make us happier than Liz Taylor at a wedding Cosmetics that contain everything from the placenta of unborn goats to a pound of pig fat mixed with volcanic ash and 19 secret ingredients from the rain forest diet products to remove mountains of blubber gained by stuffing ourselves because we are so damn miserable, and miserable because we are so horribly fat cosmetic surgery in every place from facial to other cheeks mind-numbing cruises to paradise luxury boats that never leave their luxury marinas hard drugs soft drugs alcohol anti-depressants uppers downers frenetic gambling to hit the big time jewelry that is too expensive to wear image marriages destined to last all of six months mink-lined designer toilet seats lottery tickets tobacco products we know will kill us and billions of tons of electronic and plastic and toxic junk that add nothing to our lives and create only clutter, pollution and landfill.
This is about getting the government to move faster in times of emergency and it's about saving lives,
Intellectually, we know for certain that we are on this planet for a very brief period, yet we tend to live as if we were going to live forever, as if there were no end to our life or to the lives of our friends and family. This not-so-subtle denial of death persists throughout our lives, unless we are lucky enough to get a dramatic, usually painful and invariably life-changing wake-up call. The moments of our lives are ephemeral gifts, and we can not afford to miss even one of them. Happily, you don't have to wait for a painful wake-up call. You can notice the miracle of your life right now. Awareness is a choice.
Condo converters are incredibly leveraged buyers. They are very sensitive to changes in interest rates.
Human beings have an infinite capacity for two things giving and love. Do you think Mother Teresa ever ran out of love and care to give to the sick and the destitute At nearly 85 years of age, and with a weak heart, she was still out there giving traveling and speaking, caring and working as she had been every day since she was a novice. Thats because giving nourishes and replenishes the giver. Taking depletes us and burns us out.
Technology is changing our lives. It cannot and will not change what is fundamental to the human condition. It will never change the way we are, or how we feel. The more technology we create, the more we seem confused, side-tracked with what we are conned into believing will improve our lives in the future. Always the future. Anything to get us off thinking about who we are right now, and how we might make our relationships more rewarding and loving. Too many times, all of that is put on hold.
People who take responsibility for all they create are able to quickly sort truth from fiction in their lives, and in the communication they're receiving from those around them, by using the simple litmus test of based on results. Wishing and hoping, reasons and excuses will never tell you the truth. If you say you intend to have a happy marriage, have you got one If you say you want to earn a degree from a good university, have you done it If you say you want ten million dollars, do you have it If you don't have what you say you want, then how come You've either got the results you say you want, or you have reasons to explain why not. Developing a rigorous and honest relationship with results moves you powerfully toward creating your extraordinary life.
Choosing to live an extraordinary life is simple. This does not, however, mean that it is easy.
In the matter of stepping up to our true potential, everybody wants to go to heaven and nobody wants to die. We want all the goodies without paying the price.
He was an awesome guy. He had a heart as big as the world.
When you boil it down, life is made up of our minute-to-minute experiences. And once we begin to become more aware, at some point we discover a fundamental truth life is not positive or negative, it just is.
Picture an iceberg. The bulk of its power lies below the surface. The part of the iceberg that sunk the Titanic, for example, was not the 10 percent above the water it was the 90 percent below the surface that did the damage. For human beings, it is also often true that the 90 percent below the surfaceour unconscious beliefs, attitudes and habitssinks our fondest hopes and dreams.

The politicians have focused so much on the mega-churches in the county from a land use perspective until they have not looked at the contributions being made by the smaller churches. Our church has a partnership with Longfields Elementary where we provide textbooks, school supplies and even shoes for the children.
About the process of growing up .. What follows is tragic. We stop risking for fear of making mistakes, fear of not fitting in, fear of being embarrassed or humiliated by saying the 'wrong' thing. Our instinctive joy and boundless enthusiasm are replaced
Try this. At a dinner party sometime, kick off the conversation with I believe that the most important objective for every human being is to be right. Then sit back and watch the fireworks
It's our obligation as the committee when we have an athlete who testified under oath, ... We need to determine the timing of the drug test and what was found in his system to understand whether perjury is an issue here.
Our lives, along with the weather and happiness, will forever be up and down and sideways and all over the place. Thats how life and the weather are, and that is as good as it gets. How do I know that Simple. It is all I've got. If the future does not exist and the past is gone, then this must be as good as it gets, because there is, right now, nothing else. And even if you don't believe the truth of that statement, living each moment as if now is absolutely as good as it gets will have you celebrating your life every day. Its not a bad way to live.
My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life. Fake it if you must and keep faking it until its real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now.
It may come as a severe shock if you havent given much thought to this subject beforebut our precious, cast-in-stone, objective beliefs are often totally in contrast to any reality. Or, more accurately, they are our perception of reality, rather than reality itself.
If you are not really at peace with what has happened in your life, then you have not truly accepted responsibility for the events themselves, and for your response to them. Any lingering resentment or regret simply means that you still want to lay blame, either at your own door or someone else's.
If there was no spiritual reason whatsoever to discourage homosexuality, certainly the blight of AIDS should be adequate to surmise, 'This is not a good thing to promote at our university.'
