Together with prayers, here are 'foods for thought' that motivate me when I'm down:
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living the results
of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's
opinion drown out your own inner voice. And most important,
have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.
Be who you are and say and say what you feel
because those who mind, won't matter
and those who matter don't mind.
Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see
the whole staircase, just take the first step.
-Martin Luther King
It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love
that is put into them that matters.
We've all heard that we have to learn from our mistakes,
but I think it's more important to learn from our successes.
If you learn only from your mistakes, you are inclined to learn only errors.
-Norman Vincent Peale
When the going gets tough, I guess it's not being weak if you seek the wisdom of others (aside from keeping your faith intact) to boost your spirit!
I'm sharing this post with Michelle for her Thought Provoking Thursday theme. It was awesome to read what other thought provoking posts other bloggers have written up. Check out Michelle's page by clicking the red chair below. :)
ps. The text on the postcard above says, 'A light for you.' -- written in German, and was the inspiration for this post. I received it in August 2011 from postcrossing.com
