Happy Thursday Bloggies!
Today's post is short and sweet. I really wanted to share some words of inspiration with you all that will help you push on in life, no matter what is thrown your way. Everyone struggles at some point in their lives (or everyday!) and sometimes you need a hand to help you get up off the ground and dust yourself off. Sometimes you even need tough love! I love quotations as they really "speak" to me and help me get my thoughts out of the negative ditch and back onto my path. I know a quote may not be enough to help you with all you are dealing with, but, if even for a second, you can have some peace or contimplate good change, I think it's worth it.
I know God will not give anything I can't handle. I just wish that he didn't trust me so much ~Mother Teresa
NOTE: I'm not pushing religion here. You can apply this quote to whatever religion you want..or none at all. Also, I don't think we need to argue how special and AMAZING Mother Teresa's work was. Trusting in ourselves is so important and its a huge struggle for so many people, including myself, and apparently even the sweetheart, Mother Teresa. See, even powerful people have struggles. You are NEVER alone!
You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you ~ Walt Disney
Change is NEVER easy and sometimes if we procrastinate for too long, a little boot is exactly what we need to get moving again! This was me and is still me in certain situations!
I have been wildly, disparingly, acutely miserable, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just being alive is a grand thing ~ Agatha Christie
I think about people in other countries who haven't eaten in days or live in mud shacks or suffer from unbearable diseases, and I realize I have absolutely nothing to complain about. I used to complain a lot about life, but now I think to myself : have you eaten today? yes! Have you had clean water today? yes! Do you have shelter? yes! Are you loved? YES! This brings me off my high horse and I become thankful for my life. Sometimes this process brings me to tears because I had taken for granted all the luxuries that I have in my life.
That's my food for thought today! And remember I think you are all wonderful and are doing fabulous things in your life. Trust in yourself!!!
