-- Quote of the Day --
“I felt like a pariah, my children were suffering… and I felt very alone. …Healing doesn’t just take over night – it isn’t easy to shed the tainted environment you’ve come from. …The more broken you are the more whole you have a chance to become. …It is like the tight rope walker, they have to keep their eye on their goal and not take their eyes off it – the dangerous part is when they make the turn around …and not pay somebody else’s bills for what happened because you do waste the present. …None of us will ever be perfect but we can turn flaws into flowers. We all have flaws and wounds and deficiencies and they are hard to admit – but our imperfections are apart of us …life is not about being flawless but about overcoming.”
~ Dale Stanten
Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on … titled: Rising AboveCircumstances
