Survivor Psalm

© Frank Ochberg, MD & Gift From Within

I have been victimized.
I was in a fight that was
not a fair fight.
I did not ask for the fight.
I lost.
There is no shame in losing
such fights.
I have reached the stage of
survivor and am no longer a
slave of victim status.
I look back with sadness
rather than hate.
I look forward with hope
rather than despair.
I may never forget, but I need
not constantly remember.
I was a victim.
I am a survivor.

Be Joyful Today


This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.
Chinese Proverb

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
Henry David Thoreau

Imagine every day to be the last of a life surrounded with hopes, cares, anger and fear. The hours that come unexpectedly will be much the more grateful.

Don’t waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happiness is a myth we seek,
If manifested surely irks;
Like river speeding to the plain,
On its arrival slows and murks.
For man is happy only in
His aspiration to the heights;
When he attains his goal, he cools
And longs for other distant flights.
Kahlil Gibran

Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don’t even remember leaving open.

The Power of Positive Attitude

Time is eternity

Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love,
time is eternity.
Henry Van Dyke


A relationship is like a rose,
How long it lasts, no one knows;
Love can erase an awful past,
Love can be yours, you’ll see at last;
To feel that love, it makes you sigh;
To have it leave, you’d rather die;
You hope you’ve found that special rose,
Cause you love and care for the one you chose.
Rob Cella


You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.

Mother knows best

“M” is for the MILLION things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing OLD,
“T” is for the TEARS she shed to save me,
“H” is for her HEART of purest gold;
“E” is for her EYES, with love-light shining,
“R” means RIGHT, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
