Some of my favourite words:

    “Inner guidance is heard like soft music in the night by those who have learned to listen” Vernon Howard

    “Without the observing self, you have no capacity for self-awareness” The Happiness Trap – Dr Russ

    “You always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself” The Wizard of Oz

    “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma… whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and that will make all the difference” Steve Jobs

    “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive” Howard Theorman
