History is not just facts and events. History is also a pain in the heart and we repeat history until we are able to make another’s pain in the heart our own.

Professor Julius Lester

We often spend so much time chasing the extraordinary moments that we miss out on the ordinary moments – the ones that if taken away, we’d miss more than anything.

– from Brene Brown’s “The Call to Courage”

Remember that bumps are part of the journey. Find the wisdom in the opportunities they present.
