Maya Angelou

Below is one of my ultimate favorite quotes from Maya Angelou.  It’s a “call to action” trumpet of words that I’m so fond of posting.  So, here it is.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

“What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself - for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good.”

Ocean Thoughts

Although it is snowing today, my thoughts seem to be drifting towards the warm, sunny sky and the crashing waves on the beach’s shore.  Wishful thinking, right?  However, as I thought of this, a familiar JFK quote popped into my brain and I knew it would make good blogging material.  And so, here it is…Wisdom from President Kennedy, so many years ago.

Enjoy the snow!

“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.”

John F. Kennedy

Strong and Active Faith

"The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith."
Prepared for April 13, 1945

Even though President Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote this about seventy years ago, it still speaks to every one of us today.  If we free ourselves of the doubts we have and proceed with unwavering strength, we can accomplish more than we ever dreamed possible.  I return to this quote time and time again whenever I need bolstered and thought this was fitting for today’s post.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

A Lesson of Success

Today, I read this quote and it uplifted my spirits somehow.  It reminded me that we have control of our own destiny and it is what we make of it.  I hope reading this has the same effect on you as it did me.

 “People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

Tony Robbins

Have a great weekend, everyone!

A Life-Changing Experience

Today, I found an interesting blog I felt compelled to post written by Caroline White.  I always find it intriguing to read something written by a parent who has a special needs child and lessons gleaned from the experience.  The author’s perspective about how she wishes that more adults would treat her son the way that children do is thought provoking.  I hope you find as much inspiration from reading this article as I did!  To see the world from a child’s eyes is a gift we adults certainly envy.

Not the End of the World

I came upon this article and video and wanted to share it with you.  It always amazes and gives me courage to come to the realization that some individuals go through the same obstacles that I encounter everyday in my life.  Seeing such things make me realize that we are all in this together; that we are striving to achieve the same goal.  I hope you enjoy reading this article as much as I did.

Have a terrific weekend and Valentine’s Day, everyone!

New Project

I can’t tell you how much I’m excited to begin to read Ghost Boy by Martin Pistorius and complete a book review for it.  After seeing last night’s news clip about it, I’m interested to read about this young man’s journey and his courageous battle to communicate.  When I read a synopsis of the book, it reminded me that we all have our unique wars to fight, but it’s the way we wage them that makes all the difference.

To be continued…
