Raise Your Words…

Rumi Quote

Raise your words, not voice.
It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

Life is like a camera

A woman is often measured…

Stumbled upon this Nike ad today. Love it!

Nike Ad Marilyn Manroe

A woman is often measured by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve. By where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers. By all the outside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on the inside. And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control, by who she is and who she is trying to become because as every woman knows, measurements are only statistics, and statistics lie.”

 

Live in such a way that…

Live in such way that if someone spoke badly of you, no one would believe it

Remember!

Making someone smaller does not make you bigger

Saw this on my facebook newsfeed this morning. Can’t agree more!

Go For Long Walks

Go for long walks,
Indulge in hot baths,
Question your assumptions,
Be kind to yourself,
Live for the moment,
Loosen up, SCREAM,
Curse the world,
Count your blessings,
Just let go,
Just be.

~Carol Shields

Advice from a Tree

Dear Friend,

Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter

Why Complicate Life?

Missing somebody?…………….Call
Wanna meet up?………………..Invite
Wanna be understood?………Explain
Have questions?…………………Ask
Don’t like something?………..Say it
Like something?…………………State it
Want something?……………….Ask for it
Love someone?………………….Tell it

We just have one life.
Keep It Simple.

Explore. Dream. Discover.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover.”

~Mark Twain
