I love quotes. The right ones always seem to find you exactly when you need them. When they really speak to me, I write them down in my day planner. As the year wraps up, I’m going back to pull out what I wrote, month by month. It’s interesting to go back and think about what was going on in my life at that time, why those quotes meant something to me then and what they mean to me now.
Don’t let the future steal the present.
Be grateful for past experiences, focus on present blessings, create lasting change in my attitude toward the future.
Move with the flow. Don’t fight the current. Resist nothing. Let life carry you. Don’t try to carry it.
– Oprah Winfrey
You can’t control everything that happens, but you can control your reaction. Be positive, be strong, be calm.
Storms make trees take deeper roots.
– Dolly Parton
I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.
– Anais Nin
As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.
