We all have those days where we need a little pick-me-up…
I like to read (and re-read) inspirational quotes to help keep me on the positive side of life when I am having a trying day (and yes, we ALL have them!)
Here are a few of my favorites:
"Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and the wrong.
Sometime in your life you will have been all of these."
– Robert H. Goddard
"I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel."
– Maya Angelou
"Happiness is not the absence of problems,
but the ability to deal with them"
– Abe Lincoln
"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past,
worry about the future, or anticipate troubles,
but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly"
"If you think about what you ought to do for other people,
your character will take care of itself."
– Woodrow Wilson
"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored,
renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."
– Audrey Hepburn
"Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation.
The foundation of such a method is love."
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
"It's a troublesome world.
All the people who're in it are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not."
– Dr. Seuss
All the best to you and yours,
Dr. Sarah Ray
My favorite expression right now is "Good for you, not for me."
I love this idea that we are all individual, we are all unique, and we our own perspectives and opinions. This does not mean that one person's way of thinking or doing is right or better - but that we are all "right" if we are following our own values and perspective.
We should encourage one another to follow our own truth and respect (or embrace!) the differences among us!
