Muses For The Holiday Season . . .

By Nancy L. Rommelmann PLLC Family Law Attorney –

On Love . . .

• Love people who treat you right and pray for the ones that don’t.
• Don’t worry about who doesn’t like you.  Spend your time and energy loving the people who love you.
• “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” – Mother Teresa

On Life . . .

• Sometimes the thing that is holding you back . . . is all in your head.
• “He who laughs . . . lasts.” – Erma Bombeck

On Peace . . .

• Peace within you begins the moment when you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.
• Acknowledge and believe the fact that you cannot change another person, only your response to them.
• Peace is marked by the ability to move away from drama and people who create it.
• Distance yourself from perpetrators of negativity and criticism.

On Friendship . . .

• Life is not about the people who act true to your face.  It’s about the people who remain true behind your back.
• Friends make you laugh, focus on the good, forget the bad, know all about you and still love you.
• Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .” – C.S. Lewis

On Divorce . . .

• Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know you when you need help and brave enough to ask for it.
• Be willing to let go of life as you’ve planned it, so you can embrace the life that is waiting for you.

On the Future . . .

• Today is the day to start over and get it right.
• Everybody has “baggage” to deal with.  The difference between people is do they choose to be laden with their “baggage” or choose to deal with their “baggage” and get on with the good things life has in store for them.

Moving forward doesn’t mean that you forget about the past; it simply means accepting what happened, sharpening your skills to discern and make deliberate choices to create a happy future.
