I just wanted to take a moment and share a few quotes from some of the greats that have kept me moving forward – and from falling backwards.
I hope you find some kind of inspiration, motivation or affiliation with at least one, if not all, of them.
Love & Light,
“Girls you’ve gotta know when it’s time to turn the page.” ~Tori Amos
“Sooner or later we’ve all got to let go of our past.” ~Dan Brown
“And the danger is that in this move toward new horizons and far directions, that I may lose what I have now, and not find anything except loneliness” ~Sylvia Plath
“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.” ~Nicholas Sparks
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?” ~Mary Manin Morrissey
“Where thou art – that – is Home.” ~Emily Dickinson
“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth… not going all the way, and not starting.” ~Buddha
“Whatever you do or dream you can do – begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings.” ~Dave Weinbaum
“From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.” ~Anaïs Nin
“I think there is something more important than believing: Action! The world is full of dreamers. There aren’t enough who will move ahead and begin to take concrete steps to actualize their vision.” ~W. Clement Stone
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” ~George Bernard Shaw
“Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.” ~Gilda Radner
And my favorite…
“Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.” ~Henry Rollins
