June’s topic for the Blog-o-Sphere Think Tank is: “What is your favorite quote?”
I have a number that inspire me, so I thought it would be fun to share my top 5.
“It is not our abilities who show who we truly are ….. it is our choices” ~ Albertus Dumbeldore, Harry Potter – The Chamber of Secrets
I have always found some classic movie lines that resonate with me. I don’t know how many times I have watched the Harry Potter movies. On a day this past winter, as I was in my studio, I heard this line from the movie. I mean I really ‘heard it’…..to the point where I hit rewind and wrote this in one of my journals. I have found that when you are open and ready to receive a message that you need to hear, you will. This is one of those messages for me.
” You will fail because you don’t have convictions” ~ Agent Phil Coulson, The Avengers
Once again, a classic movie line that resonated with me. This year’s movie, The Avengers, had one of those movie moments as Agent Phil Coulson tells Loki why he will fail. It was because he didn’t have convictions. It just struck home, when one succeeds, one has the burning desire to do so because of their convictions. At least that is how I see it.
“You are a divine creation of God. You are a spiritual being. You don’t need anyone else to confirm that.” ~ Dr Wayne Dyer, The Shift
I am a huge fan of Dr Dyer. He is one of those people that I can relate to and I connect with his messages. I do a lot of searching for why I am here and what work I need to accomplish while I am on Earth. Listening to Dr Dyer has helped me in my search for the meaning of my existence.
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~ Albert Einstein
Wow. From one of the geniuses! Just think about all the things that are possible and will be possible because of the imagination. This conveys so much hope to me.
And my Number 1 quote……drum roll…… wait for it…….
“Well behaved women seldom make history.” ~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
I’d like to think that all of us are continually growing as we journey through this life. I feel fortunate that I have had that opportunity to learn from my mistakes and grow to become a better person. I know I’m not done in that journey. There was a time when I was held back and constrained, but I broke free of those chains and as I’ve told many people “The genie has left the bottle and she ain’t ever going back in there again“. That’s me. I feel I’ve gone through a lot to be where I am today and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.
