Today’s quote:

 

Maya Angelou, so many to choose from I couldn’t pick just one!

The first speaks to me and my way of approaching life. I’m not a whiner or complainer, I take control of what’s going on around me and I either accept it or I change it. Dwelling on the negative or living with guilt changes nothing and helps no one. I want to be better than that.

The other two is how I hope I present myself to the world, to you and mostly to myself! ❤

3 Day Quote Challenge! Day 2

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

Rules:

  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.

Today’s quote:

Einstein

Nothing we have now or know now would have come about if someone didn’t imagine it first. To piggy back onto yesterday’s quote, it’s important to think for ourselves, reach farther, imagine more!

It fits also into the general topic of this blog, labels are a good start but if we are so rigid as to not use our imagination the label can quickly become stifling. With the knowledge we have we then need to think of our own wants and needs and imagine a life/dynamic that fits us. It’s with that understanding that we can move forward.

This can be applied to family, work and relationships as well as tools and new inventions but it doesn’t stop there. Imagining a world different than what we have can help us to imagine a world where we really can understand each other and finally live as one human race.

Imagine yourself in someone else’s shoes, and then imagine what they need … with that understanding we can then create a world we can be proud of. All of us.

Today’s quote:

bukowski_4.jpg

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*
