On the Dawn of a New Week.....

On the dawn of a new week,  please enjoy this choice of thoughts for all ordinary faces to embrace as we send a virtual shout out to +Jonathan Huie and his team for all that they do to help all to change the conversation about our World:




We can always choose to perceive things differently.
You can focus on what's wrong in your life,
or you can focus on what's right.
- Marianne Williamson

Instead of focusing on that circumstances that you cannot change -
focus strongly and powerfully on the circumstances that you can.
- Joy Page


Keep your attention focused entirely
on what is truly your own concern,
and be clear that what belongs to others
is their business and none of yours.
- Epictetus
