My dear blogger friend, Haralee, challenged me to write about three inspirational quotes that have touched me in a special way. The fact is that MANY quotes touch me. What they have in common is a thought-provoking way to summarize a feeling or a situation. What speaks to me depends on mood and moment.
But today, I’ll give you three I like right now: this very minute.
This is the way I’ve always lived my life, never really obsessing over any particular path or achievement, just identifying opportunities and knowing that if I wanted to take them, I could. That doesn’t mean I haven’t turned some down or sat on my ass when I could be achieving something. But I don’t get all wrapped around the axle about it. I know that if I believe in what I’m doing, I’ll make it a success. Does that make sense?
Of course, I’ve had my share of drama and I have been a real drama queen at times in my life. I’m certain there were times that some of my friends wanted to club me over the head. But then, that’s the way I process stuff.
Still and all, I don’t stay wrapped around the axle long (are you getting the drift?) because I know that something fabulous is around the next corner. I am confident of it.
To be honest, I just never got the memo about pissing, moaning and being depressed about my life. Then again, I’ve had a pretty damn lucky life so far and I’m aware that now that I’m aging, all that might change. And I might change. If faced with a bigger challenge, I hope that I will remember that all things happen as they are supposed to.
I must say that this is a goal and I am imperfect, especially when it comes to grocery store baggers or other minor irritations. But I do love the idea of heartprints, and if you are in my life a lot you are covered with them and if you don’t see them, then look harder because they are there, for sure.
So that’s it. My three inspirational quotes, the ones that resonated with me the moment I wrote this. The next moment? Might be three others.
And with that, I’ll ask three other bloggers to do the same, if they’d like to: Kim Tackett, Nancy Fox and Laurel Regan.
