In the spirit of today’s post I will not apologize for my long absence from my blog. I will say that I missed it and am glad to be back.
I was scrolling through twitter this morning and found this awesome article posted by Women’s Health.
If you have a minute, watch the video clip. It’s not long and although it is ultimately a Pantene commercial, it still carries a pretty great message: stop saying sorry for everything! What a perfect topic for quotables. Here are some inspiring quotes about being yourself, owning yourself and being unapologetic about it.
Isn’t this the most wonderful message? Be you. No apologies. What a great lesson to pass along to our daughters. Hold on to your power, listen to your inner voice and proceed with confidence.
Have a great and unapologetic Wednesday!
In honour of mother’s day this weekend, here are five lovely and emotional quotes and five light hearted quotes (one is not a quote, but an awesome image…bear with me) for the mom(s) in your life. If you’re a mom, celebrate! And, take a minute to smile at the privilege and joy to have children, sigh at the chaos and laugh at the little (or big) people who made you a mother.
I realize I’ve posted 10 things for my Friday Five. Moms are worth it.
Five pretty, inspiring and sentimental quotes:
But motherhood isn’t always pretty, inspiring or sentimental…four amusing quotes and one kick-ass image:
There’s no quote here, but what a great image! I picked this one because I love Wonder Woman, I have a five year old boy and a baby girl…and on most days, I feel I deserve to wear a cape because of all the shit I do. (courtesy danitoons.deviantart.com) Give her long, curly, black hair and this is literally, my life.
Have a great weekend and celebrate your mom, yourself as a mom, and all the women in your life who are mother-like.
This week’s quotables are about my passion – writing. I love to write. I write personal essays and short stories and I have written two manuscripts. I may choose to self publish one day, since the traditional way isn’t exactly working out for me, but that’s alright because regardless, I will never stop writing.
My inner life is normally bursting. I must unleash it onto a page – any page (or screen) at any given moment.
Need inspiration? Pay attention to your life and it will offer all the inspiration you need.
“Make the best of your talent” I love that line! If we are privileged with talent or an ability in any area, we owe it to ourselves to fully explore and develop it.
This is a tough one for me, but oh so true. When you let go…the words that flow from your fingertips are unbelievable…you never know what’s inside you to write until you just write.
Um, see above quote.
A bit excessive, but I understand the sentiment. Writing can be tortuous but when done with abandon it leaves you exhilarated and empty. You must refill and spill it out all over again.
What are you passionate about? What do you love to do that is woven into your soul?
It is said that we have complete control and power over our lives if we simply tap into the power of our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our reality. While I find some of the “new-agey” rhetoric a little tough to swallow, I do believe that being positive, optimistic and grateful go a long way in helping to lighten a load that might otherwise feel crushing. Every experience is made more brilliant and meaningful if we choose to see it as such. Each moment we spend contemplating negative thoughts is a moment of happiness we rob ourselves. We have one life and are constantly reminded to live it fully…well, we can. Just think positively.
Hope you have a great Wednesday!
It’s spring – so the calendar says. Yet, it’s freezing out. My child is still in snow pants and every one I know is tired of the cold, the snow, indoor living…
This week’s quotes are all about Resilience. Because we will get through this interminable cold. We will. We will survive the winter and all of the challenges it has carried…weather-related and otherwise…
Resilience is about growth and learning. We become resilient by witnessing our strength through struggle. And, yes, this is more than just about surviving the weather. Happy Wednesday everyone!
