Hit me like American History X.... must see! Love heals
5 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

It was my honor to meet Santiago Rizzo and then to see his movie QUEST. Words can not adequately express the awful beauty of this movie. An unflinching view of child abuse, reality that for many children the streets are safer than their own lives and the gift of love can transform lives. #questthemovie #thetruthalwaysrises #trustyourstruggle


Have empathy for everyone.

Put yourself in someone else's skin and walk around in it.

Tell the truth.

You'll have less to remember. You know you never lied and eventually people will trust you.

Be Reliable.

Do what you say you were going to do. Even if it means showing up on time. People will trust you.

Assume Positive Intent.

If they are incompetent, so be it, but it doesn't hurt you to assume they are doing their best.

Be Physically Active.

It's better than any drug. It's fun and can be a boon to your social life. If you are running an errand, walk or ride a bike because you'll feel better. It may not be obvious at first but it adds up.

Just do it.

If the choice is between sitting around and doing nothing or doing something, do something every single time.

Don't blame anyone.

No one is to blame for anything. Only you can change what you do. If you blame someone else, you can't solve the problem. Instead, you are telling someone else to solve the problem. If you don't blame then you will be able to take control.

Your possessions can be replaced.

People are obsessed with their possessions. Letting your possessions control you is a terrible way of living. When you can let them go, you become free. There's little relationship between wealth and happiness.

Carpe Diem.

Seize the Day. Accomplish something everyday. Otherwise you're wasting time. There's always something wonderful to experience. Go do it.

Solve your problems.

Some people like to have problems so they have something to complain about. Don't waste time. It also gives you something to do. Something to strive for.
