Andrea Owen, in one of her Monday Kick Ass Quotes, shared the following:

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”
-Dalai Lama

“Quick reality check: Can’t change anything that’s already happened, so might as well make peace with it. Plus, the fastest way I know how to get happier about anything, is to make peace with it.
