We carry our past with us, to wit, the primitive and inferior man with his desires and emotions, and it is only with an enormous effort that we can detach ourselves from this burden. If it comes to a neurosis, we invariably have to deal with a considerably intensified Shadow. And if such a person wants to be cured it is necessary to find a way in which his conscious personality and his Shadow can live together.- Carl Jung. CW 11: Psychology and Religion: par 132, pg 76
“If you truly expect to realize your dreams, abandon the need for blanket approval. If conforming to everyone’s expectations is the number one goal, you have sacrificed your uniqueness, and therefore your excellence.” ― Hope Solo
"This waiting, wishing, and wanting will get you no where fast. Start operating from NOW and acting from where you are at this moment. Operating from the NOW will expedite that wish list by charging it with action. Operate from the place as things are. Don't waste your awesome energy waiting, wishing and wanting anymore! Start today, and act now. You will quickly see your efforts and energies paying off when you operate from the NOW~ Happy NOW-ing."
