Inspiration for Living with Intention
When I think about why I do what I do, there are three quotes that inspire me.

The first is an anonymous quote. It's on the image above. It describes how we find peace in life. It's about the internal actions we take. We cannot always calm the storm outside, but we can work to calm the chaos inside of us.
The second is from Thomas M. Sterner from his amazing book The Practicing Mind:
"Habits are learned. Choose them wisely."
Yes. We can choose what we do and how we act. We can control ourselves. We often cannot control anything else. But we can work on ourselves.
And the last is any quote from Mark Twain because he reminds us to laugh at ourselves. One of my favorites is:
"I have suffered a great many tragedies in my life, most of which never happened."
We can make our lives harder just by the way we think about things.

Let's chat to see if working together works! You tell me what's going on; I'll tell you if I can help. If we both think it's a good fit, we can talk about what working together would be like.
