Happy Sunday! I felt the need to find thought that inspire me today. Good and positive things to fill my mind and evict the negative things. These are some of my favorites and I felt I needed to share them.
Bright Blessings and love,
Negativity is a very dangerous and bad drug that kills lives and our ability to make our lives what we want them to be.
-Coach Steele (Tools to Life)
There is no failure except in no longer trying.
Self pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in the world.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.
The last of the human freedoms is to choose one's attitudes.
Keep on going and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down.
-Charles F. Kettering
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies: for the hardest victory is the victory over self.
The best way out is always through.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
The only conquests which are permanent and leave no regrets
are the conquests over ourselves.
Anything you think you can become you can become. That doesn’t mean it is always going to be easy, but in the end it will always be worth it.
Come, my friends, ‘tis not too late to seek a newer world.
– Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Cherish the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody
expects of you. Never excuse yourself.
-Henry Ward Beecher
The Great Black Things that have loomed against the horizon of my life, threatening to devour me, simply loomed and nothing more.
Imaginary obstacles are insurmountable. Real ones aren't. But you can't tell the difference when you have no real information. Fear can create even more imaginary obstacles than ignorance can.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eye off your goal.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once a week; for perhaps the parts of my brain now atrophied would have thus been kept active through use. The loss of these tastes is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional art of our nature.
Music is God's gift to man, the only art of heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to heaven.
-Walter Savage Landor
Music is well said to be the speech of angels; in fact, nothing among the utterances allowed to man is felt to be so divine. It brings us near to the Infinite.
Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.
