Shared Wisdom: Women’s Wisdom

Here are some more pearls of wisdom from women.  They work really well for men too!

“My Declaration of Self Esteem

I am me.  In all the world there is no one else exactly like me.  There are persons who have some parts like me, but no one adds up exactly like me.  Therefore everything that comes out of me is authentically mine because I alone chose it.”    (Virginia Satir)

“I have come to believe in the ‘Sacrament of the Moment’, which presupposes trust in the ultimate goodness of my creator.”     (Ruth Casey)

“When I am all hassled about something, I always stop and ask myself what difference will it make in the evolution of the human species in the next ten million years, and that question always helps me to get back my perspective.”     (Anne Wilson Schaef)

“Surround yourself with people who respect and treat you well.”     (Claudia Black)

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”     (Helen Keller)

“Expect your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level, expect to grow your spirituality.”     (Eileen Caddy)

“Don’t compromise yourself.  You’re all you’ve got.”     (Janis Joplin)

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.  And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”     (Martha Graham)

“I want to find out who I am and give up letting everyone else define me.”  (Anon.)

“The two important things that I did learn were that you are as powerful and strong as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any endeavour is taking the first step, making the first decision.”     (Robyn Davidson)
