Sometimes the highest truths come from reflecting on and learning from our lowest moments. Here are a few of Barbara Nash-Price's life-affirming recipes for healing and happiness:
On Love: "To know love, feel love, and give love, I must first learn to love myself."
On Health: "The body is always overhearing what the mind is thinking."
On Forgiveness: "When I learn forgiveness, I know that I am automatically forgiven, unconditionally."
On Discipline: "To have discipline is to help oneself. To recognize weakness is to love oneself. To apply discipline daily is to give oneself the utmost respect."
On Work: "What is the value of my life? To be able to work with the talents I am given. What are they?"
On Money: "I let go of why, when, and where I was not given what I deserve. I begin today to believe that I can, will, and shall have whatever is meant to come to me."
On Relationships: "When someone controls another human being, he or she only controls the time it takes to destroy the relationship forever."
On Family: "I was born into the family that I was given to learn valuable lessons that can, will, and should shape my life."
On Marriage: "I know myself, enjoy life, and find out why I am here before I insist on finding a mate in my life."
On Relaxation: "Nothing is so pressing, so important to me, and so consuming that my health and peace of mind take a backseat to the issues of the moment."
On Spirituality: "Learning lessons replaces mistakes."
On Rules for Living: "I canonly change myself. I will try not to change any other person."
