3 Day Quote Challenge! Day 1

I have been nominated for the 3 day quote challenge by:

A Leap of Faith

Thank you for thinking of me and for all the interesting and informative blog posts! If you haven’t yet checked it out you really should stop by. I enjoy the journey into true self acceptance and personal strength that she is chronicling.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Today’s quote:

Why does this appeal to me? Well because I believe that people are capable of greatness, but I also feel that most are much to lazy, much too self-absorbed, much too frivolous to bother to look further and achieve that greatness.

With the social media craze we are now a part of everyone has their noses in their phones, never looking up to see what’s right in front of their faces. Whether that’s ignoring their jobs, ignoring their kids, friends or significant others …. it’s all to common.

I find it a very sad state to be in but maybe, just maybe putting it out there like this will wake some of us up. We need to get our noses out of our phones, we need to stop taking the ‘Internet’s’ word for it, we need to use our own minds and common sense and we need to start taking better care of our relationships and responsibilities …

Charles Bukowski has many words of wisdom even if they can be a bit hard to swallow at times, but if you look deeper, you might just see the inspiration in them! *wink*
