More Great Quotes
Last month I so much enjoyed sharing with all of you my favorite quotes, that I decided I would share some more with you. It was interesting I had received a phone call from a client whom I had not seen in several months. She shared with me at our session that she had read my article from last month and had cut out the article and placed it on her refrigerator because she had found it so helpful. I realized that I had so many more that I could share so here we are. My hope is that when you read them they will make sense to you and you will be able to apply them to your life in a way that moves you and possibly settles your soul.
“Successful people believe in themselves and their ability to succeed.” “When you have nothing to lose.. sometimes you are able to be your most authentic self.” I recently had a personal experience with someone very close to me and I made a decision that I needed to confront a situation in order for me to feel that I could move on. I realized that I was holding onto so much fear of losing this person in my life. When I made the decision I was in a very calming mindset that I could face my fears because I really had nothing to lose. I didn’t want to be uncomfortable anymore and because of that sense of calm I experienced no fear only gratitude and felt so relaxed with myself which is being your most authentic self.
Audrey Hepburn said: “Nothing is impossible, the very word says I’M POSSIBLE!!” I love this it is so true if only we believe it to be true. “To succeed and have a happy life you need common sense, a commitment to hard work and the courage to go your own way.” “Happiness is never an accident. It is the prize we get when we choose wisely from life’s great stores.” “Courage means moving forward despite your fears.” This is exactly what I did when I confronted my close friend. I felt so proud of myself for taking this risk and was actually amazed about how good I felt and that all I felt was positive feelings. It was simply remarkable. I do have to say that having a strong sense of spirituality and trust in myself, others and life is why it all aligned for me.
There are times in our life when we can define ourselves by what we say, do, think, act or look like. So this next quote is perfect. “It is something you did, not who you are!” What a relief. We can stop beating ourselves up and overanalyzing everything. It doesn’t have to define us. “Don’t hold yourself hostage to who you have been or what you have done.” This is where the concept of forgiveness comes in. It is so important for us to forgive ourselves so that we can be free to be who we want to be now. “When you know better, you do better.”
“All that matters is this moment. Everything behind you is gone and everything in front of you is unknown, so all you can do is be the best version of yourself right now.” It is so important to stay in today and not live in the past or project the future. Enjoy every moment that you have on this earth. You can only do it once so make it worthwhile because you are worthwhile and deserving of everything good that life has to offer.
