Inspiration & Wisdom from The Little Book of Wisdom
Today is a little boost of wisdom and inspiration from a little book I got at a boutique on the westcoast of Canada. It's called "The Little Book of Wisdom" and I keep it by my bedside. I hope it inspires, motivates and empowers you today!
Today I'm going to be sharing some quotes from a little book I keep by my bedside called "The Little Book of Wisdom." I got it from a boutique on Granville Island near Vancouver BC Canada. It's a real nice shot of wisdom! I recommend listening to this episode and these quotes as it's quite relaxing with the music, too!
Within your heart
Keep one still, secret spot
Where dreams may go,
And, sheltered so,
May thrive and grow
Where doubt and fear are not.
O' keep a place apart,
Within your heart,
For little dreams to go...
This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. In its place is something that you have left behind. Let it be something good.
Does the sun ask itself, "Am I good?" "Am I worthwhile?" "Is there enough of me?" No. It burns and it shines. Does the son ask itself? "What does the moon think of me?" "How does Mars feel about me today?" No, it burns. It shines. Does the son ask itself, "Am I as big as other suns in other galaxies? No, it burns, it shines.
People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
- Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
There is no beautifier of complexion or form or behaviour like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.
-Edward de Bono
Don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle.
Holding onto anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else. You are the one who gets burned.
Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow is only a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
You cannot hate, argue, reason, fight, complain or yell at a dark room enough to illuminate it. Only by shining a light is darkness overcome. Be that light.
Nobody but you is responsible for your life. It doesn't matter what your mama did. It doesn't matter what your daddy didn't do. You are responsible for your life, you are responsible for the energy that you create for yourself, and you're responsible for the energy that you bring to others.
Sending you BIG love today & always!
My whole heart, ♡
