Quotes

Lately I’ve become obsessed with quotes. When I see one that resonates with me, I write it on a post-it and tape it to my closet door. I currently have about a dozen little neon multi-colored pieces of paper stuck to the door, but the pink paint is quickly disappearing. Here are some of them:

“If we dare to touch the world around us, we can truly create something amazing.”

“Practice being curious,” – Anders Holm

‘Feel on fire about something in your life’ – Sara Bareilles

“Start by doing what is necessary. Then, do what’s possible. Suddenly, you are doing the impossible.” – St. Francis of Assisi

“Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow.” – Albert Einstein

“Lead a ‘why not’ life.” – Kevin Smith

“If you want to capture ideas, you are lost. You are going to be detached from emotions and forget to live your life. You will be an observer and not a human being living his or her life. Forget taking notes; what’s important remains, what is not important goes away.” – Paulo Coelo

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” – Eckhart Tolle

“And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.” – Libba Bray

“Man becomes what he thinks about.” – The Secret

‘Forgiveness isn’t for the other person; it’s for you. When you don’t forgive someone, you give them power over you. They’re sleeping at night and you can’t.’ – Madea (sound wisdom, regardless of its source)

“If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others will become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” – Paulo Coelo

“Never regret something that once made you smile.” – Amber Deckers

“Stop beating yourself up. You are a work-in-progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.” -Unknown

Things I’ve picked up along the way…

‘Progress, not perfection.’ –  a Weight Watchers meeting

‘Treat yourself the way you want to be treated. Love yourself and they will love you, too.’

‘Kill the excuses or they will kill you.’
