Maya Angelou on Doing it Better

I just finished reading Glennon Doyle Melton’s book, “Carry On, Warrior”. It’s loaded with great quotes, but my favorite I found near the end.

As written by Maya Angelou:

“I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better”.

I LOVE that! And now I also know better. Thank you, Ms. Angelou. And thanks, Glennon, for putting it in a place where I would see it.

Be Kind

I have just started reading a new book by “Momastery’s” founder Glennon Doyle Melton. The book is “Carry On, Warrior” and I didn’t even reach the Table of Contents before I found an excerpt I wanted to share. It is a quote by Rev. John Watson that reminded me I am not alone. I’m not the only person with problems, even though it often feels that way.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle”.

Cool.
