Today for #BeWoW Wednesday, positivity is the name of the game. I’ll let you in on a little secret of mine: I collect quotes of all kinds. I admit it, I’m a quote hoarder. I collect them to use as meditations when situations get hairy or the bottom drops out.
Each quote has a couple recurring themes: acceptance of yourself and courage to keep going despite all the odds. Feel free to take the ones that give you those puppy eyes, serve as a mirror or a possible meditation. I won’t mind, I love to share 😀
If you wish, let me know which one(s) speak to you. I’d love to have a conversation with you!
“When you feel the rise of unpleasant emotions, take a moment and make an effort to identify their source. The answers are far more available thatn you may have previously believed. Accept such feelings as your own in the moment. Do not shove them underneath, ignore them or try to substitute what you think of as good thoughts.”
-Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” -Dr. Seuss
“Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiousity. Make your life worth living.” -Albert Einstein
“Be yourself; everyone else is taken.” -Oscar Wilde
“There are far, far better things ahead, than any we leave behind.”—C.S. Lewis
“However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and suceed at. While there’s life, there is hope.” —Stephen Hawking
