Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart

Sorrow prepares you for joy.

It violently sweeps everything out of your house,

so that new joy can find space to enter.

It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart,

so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.

It pulls up the rotten roots,

so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.

Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,

far better things will take their place.

❤ ❤  Rumi

Cut your losses

Throw greed, jealousy, hatred out of your heart.

Evil thoughts and temper – let them go.

Deny this and you lose, so cut your losses.

Own this and your profits quickly grow.

❤ ❤ Rumi
