“But what is strength without a double share of wisdom?” -John Milton
Y’all the truth is that I got my inspiration this morning from my cup of tea, I’ll admit that. But the beauty of that is being able to be enlightened by the smallest things. This just reminded me that it is great to be strong but it is useless to have strength if you cannot be wise. A strong person can endure tough situations. A wise be person can figure a way out of a tough situation and uncover the lesson behind it. Be both with a little extra wisdom. 😉
“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.” – Maori Proverb
I like this quote because I know that (at least for myself) it is easy to focus on everything that goes wrong and run with it. This quote reminds me to focus on what is good in my life and everything that I have been blessed with. Instead of looking towards the darkness, face the sunny part of your life and allow it to warm your heart… just don’t forget to wear your sunnies!
“If the words you spoke appeared on your skin, would you still be beautiful?” – Unknown
I picked this powerful quote to be my first Inspiration Monday quote for more than one reason. The first is because I truly believe that there is power in the things that we say. The more beautiful words we speak the more beautiful outcomes manifest in the world. The other reason, and perhaps the most important, is to set a tone of what I want this community to look like. Whether I only have a few readers or not, I want this to be a place where people can come and not only get some helpful information but to communicate with me and others in a positive way. I hope that we can share information and experiences with each other without the worries of being verbally assaulted for differences of all sorts. So remember this quote throughout your week but also carry it with you forever. Be as beautiful as you can through the words you speak and type and think.
I tend to find inspiration everywhere. From everyday interactions, a quote, bible verse or… of course, a post from Instagram. Like I’ve said before, it’s all about how you look at things. One thing I found that inspires me to not only find inspiration in even the smallest of things but to also be an inspiration is this: to be inspired is great; to inspire is incredible… err, not exactly sure who said it but it’s awesome! We can all live our lives to inspire others. Be incredible dolls! 😉
