Inspirational quotes and how I have learned from them

Saturday, March 02, 2013

I have collected quotes and posted them all over my page.

I gather quotes and pin them to my board, I print them out and I stick them on my mirror and my books. I carry them with me, I even wear them on my wrist in a silver inscribed bracelet.

Something has happened.

I am now posting them on my facebook for others. I am printing them out and leaving them for my daughter on her pillow.

I discovered, while I like the quotes, I don't lean on them like I used to when I felt lost, looking for hope, direction, motivation. I carry all of that within me.

I enjoy reading them still but I feel like my life and how I live each and every day is my very own quote on the world.

What quote would you be.. I hope it is not She never got around to being who she always wanted to be.

I hope it is more, take each and every single moment of your life and breathe it in, experiencing it as if it was a wonderful couple of coffee, a child's smile, the warmth of a hug, the surprise of flowers, the quite stillness of the early morning.

My husband said to me the other day, I want to be simple again.

I, too, want to sit on the side of the river enjoying the sound of the water rushing by, and not being stuck in rush hour.

I am eating organic, and I am cooking from scratch and I am reading more and I am moving my body, though not as fast as I once did. I am not fierce, but I am triumphant. Taking care of me. I have a long way to go, but I realize each and every one of us runs a marathon, whether we put a pair of running shoes on or not.

How do you want to get to the end? I am savoring every single sweet step, all the hills, the valleys, the rainstorms, and the sunshine.
