Bruce Lee had a lot of wisdom. This a great quote!
I must admit, I have a long, long way to go in this regard. I am taking steps but it feels like I got a thousand miles to go. Nonetheless, a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, then another.
Like the great heroes of Braveheart…on step…then another.

If someone throws an old, stinky shoe at you it’s your choice if you wear it.
You know, the old children’s rhyme most of learned as a youth goes like:
Sticks and stones may break your bones.
But words will never hurt me
Unless YOU let them.
Of course, they can if someone close or important says something mean and cruel but it’s our choice if we let them linger and continue to haunt us.
