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!
This week’s quotatbles are all about surrender. Too often we find ourselves in challenging situations and we don’t know why and we wish we could wish ourselves out of them. It is only once we are through those situations that we see why we had to live through them…and we learn that had we simply allowed ourselves to live through them, we probably would have had an easier time.
Surrendering is not an easy lesson to learn – nor is it easy to do because it requires trust. (We can do next week’s quotables on trust.) However, it is the most peaceful approach to all circumstances and surrendering actually helps you keep your sanity.
Surrendering is a great way to show yourself compassion, love and trust. I love this quote because it reminds me to breathe. It is my way of reminding myself to surrender. Once I got over the fear of not being in control it actually brought me a huge relief!
Surrendering teaches you about yourself. It makes you get out of your own way and allow your path to unfold in ways you would have never imagined. It is pretty empowering to watch yourself grow and be the person you know you are.
These three quotes go hand in hand…accept what is happening, no matter how terrible because it will end and inevitably you will come out stronger. The process and the outcome will teach you things about yourself that you never imagined…you will blow yourself away with your strength! Also, isn’t it wonderful to know that the past can stay there? That your present is completely in your power to create as you wish?
I hope these quotes help you through the rest of the week. Right now I’m dealing with surrendering to this crazy, frigid cold and figuring out how to battle cabin fever! It’s all good.
