Thich Nhat Hanh

Walk so that your footprints bear only the marks of peaceful joy and complete freedom. To do this you have to learn to let go. Let go of your sorrows, let go of your worries. That is the secret of walking meditation.

When you plant a lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet, if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.

Louise Hay

Louise Hay  1926 – 2017
I am now creating a new way of living. I know it’s never too late for me – I am never too old to dream and have goals. Dreams and goals keep me young and interested in life.

I find that the more willing I am to be grateful for the small things in life, the bigger stuff just seems to show up from unexpected sources, and I am constantly looking forward to each day with all the surprises that keep coming my way.

I look forward with enthusiasm to the adventures of the day knowing that in my life all is good.

Nothing constructive and worthy of man’s efforts ever has, or ever will be achieved, except by that which comes from a positive mental attitude, based on a definiteness of purpose and activated by a burning desire, and acted upon until the burning desire is elevated to the level of applied faith.

To be a star…
You must shine your own light, follow your own path and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.

Elbert Hubbard

Elbert Hubbard  1856 – 1915

Before you judge me, try hard to love me, look within your heart. Then ask: have you seen my childhood?

If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.

I’m going to search for my star until I find it. It’s hidden in the drawer of innocence, wrapped in a scarf of wonder.

Sophie & Lucy
Susan Jeffers

Feel the fear…. and do it anyway.

Helen Keller

Helen Keller  1880 – 1968
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence.  And I learn whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.

What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens… but often we look so long at the closed door, that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

Everyone has a different beauty and different qualities and I think that women need to learn to love their qualities and be comfortable in the fact that everyone is different.

Happiness is a choice we make. You can wake up and say, “Oh, I can’t believe it’s so cold,” or you can say, “Oh, wow, this is a great opportunity for me to try out my new sweater.” No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better, rather than the one that drags you down?

I am a vibrant, healthy and joyful being of light and love.

I feel like life is really short, and it’s important to enjoy yourself and embrace whatever comes your way, whether it’s a challenging day or a great day, just welcome it with open arms. No matter who you are, you can’t escape challenges, they are part of life.

In being love, I give love.
In being joy, I give joy.
In being happiness, I give happiness.
Everything I need is within.

Miranda Kerr positive attitude quote – pic: Bluebell & Sky (2015)
Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr  1983
Knowing yourself and coming to trust your feelings and your intuition will open up your life to greater possibilities and keep you moving toward your goals. One thing I have learned is that I should trust my gut instincts. Ultimately, only we know what is best for us.

Life is too short to give another minute to anyone or anything that doesn’t make you happy.

We all have bad days, but one thing is true… no cloud is so dark that sun can’t shine through.

Martin Luther King Jr

Martin Luther King Jr  1929 – 1968
If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.’

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.

I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land. I’m not worried about anything, I’m not fearing any man.

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross  1926 – 2004
