A Small, Quiet Room


“Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be.  Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you’ll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room.”

~Cheryl Strayed


“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.”

~Michael J. Fox



Wishing you a wonderful day!


  1. Both quotes were excellent, each on their own could be the catalyst for a story. I remember my wife telling me when I was sick in the hospital for six months in 1986 that she had thought about trying to contact Michael J Fox to come encourage me. I went to school at Burnaby North but I think he went to Burnaby central. That was a tough year surviving kidney transplant rejection. I have never met him but I know he is well respected in more than the celebrity circle and I believe his favorite role is probably being a Dad.

    • Thank you for your thoughtful comment. Your experience in the hospital for six months after kidney transplant rejection is moving and sounds incredibly challenging. I’m glad you overcame it and are well now. I agree that Michael J. Fox is an inspirational person. His attitude is truly amazing. Thank you for visiting.
