Small Differences

“Maybe you can’t change the whole world, but if you have love in your heart you can make small differences every day, which really does change the world, one life at a time.” – Kristina Koncz

We can change the world one step at a time. We look at the Grand Canyon & what the power of water can do and think “I don’t have that kind of power”, but one drop at a time, drip, drip, water will bore a hole right through stone.

Obstacles

“Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they
haven’t half the strength you think they have.” – Norman Vincent
Peale

Poor Man

“The poor man is not he who is without a cent, but he who is without a
dream.” – Hugh White

This is so true. You can always find a creative way to fund your dream, but you cannot buy one.

We Can

“Don’t be afraid to try something new. An amateur built
the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.” – Unknown

Just had to share this – we always think that we can’t do something new, unless we have an education or some sort of training. We can do anything that we think we can, and we can do it better than we ever dreamed.

Read

“It isn’t what the book costs, it’s what it will cost if you don’t read it.” – Jim Rohn

Be Yourself

“What you love is as unique to you as your fingerprints. You need to
know that because nothing will make you really happy but doing what you love.”
– Barbara Sher.

I have always thought of people as being like the shades of the rainbow. If you don’t remain your own unique shade, you spoil the colors of the rainbow. Be yourself because everyone else is already taken.

Maturity

“Maturity begins when we’re content to feel we’re right about
something without feeling the necessity to prove someone else is
wrong.” – Sydney J. Harris

Wow! This is an amazing comment that I can work on, not feeling that I have to “prove” I am right. I am adding this to my list.

Create

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change
something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – Buckminster Fuller.

We all have the means to build whatever we can imagine. Stop fighting & start creating. Have the “I wonder” mind. Be open and step out in faith, knowing that there will be stepping stones to step on or that God will give you wings to fly.

Children

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone

This quote is WOW! What is so amazing is how much your heart expands, as our children grow up and become parents themselves. I have pieces of my heart walking around in each of them. Words cannot express how much I love my children & grandchildren, and how much I want their worlds to be happy and safe. My heart breaks for JoAnn today as her first mothers day without her child. I pray that her memories bring peace and joy to her heart.

Work

“If you want to leave footprints in the sands of time, wear work boots.” -Anonymous

Great quote emphasizing that we need to “work” to get our goals accomplished & live the life of our dreams. Sometimes when we look at others have done, they make it look effortless. Yet behind the curtin they are working hard & are just as scared as we are. So put on those boots and get to work kicking butt!

Say No

“You can say no and smile only when you have a bigger yes burning inside of you.” – Unknown. Say no to distractions and yes to your dreams. Say no to sitting in front of the TV and yes to going outside and enjoying nature. Say no to the mind chatter and realize that you deserve all of the best things of life.

Reach

“If a thing is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach.”
