Pam Finger - person you decide to be

♥*✿*•♥

"You do not have to be your mother, unless she is who you want to be. You do not have to be your mother's mother, or your mother's mother's mother, or even your grandmother's mother on your father's side. You may inherit their chins or their hips or their eyes, but you are not destined to become the women who came before you. You are not destined to live their lives. So if you inherit something, inherit their strength, their resilience. Because the only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be." ~Pam Finger, as seen in The Chicken Soup for the Soul, 2nd helping from Rainwater Designs

Shahnawaz Khan - yourself

"The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself. When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it's your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who's not full of hate, who's able to smile and be carefree. So that's who I have to be." ~Shahnawaz Khan

""Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.” This is a lie. What we say matters. The unkind things we communicate can soil the best of relationships; even with the deepest of regrets…what lingers is a stain of hurt that may fade but will never truly go away. The wounding words we say are like feathers released in a harsh wind, once said; we will never get them back." ~Jason Versey, Jason Versey, A Walk with Prudence

OTHERS:

"Friendship is a priceless gift, that cannot be bought or sold, but it's value is far greater than a mountain made of gold. For gold is cold and lifeless, it can neither see nor hear. And in time of trouble it is powerless to cheer. It has no ears to listen, no heart to understand, it cannot bring you comfort or reach out a helping hand. So when you ask God for a gift, be thankful if he sends, not diamonds, pearls,or riches, but the love of real true friends." ~Natalie Love

Don Shapiro Quotes


“Guidance from our inner wisdom lights a path for us to follow about that which we could not possibly know. These messages may not be easy to decipher. It could be a feeling, a sensation, a symbolic event, a sense of peace or a shout. They arrive without clear explanation or directions. While it can be difficult to trust such messages, they often are unerringly accurate. Once we can separate our ego, desires and emotions from our true inner wisdom, we can find the guidance that will take us to a better place.” ~Don Shapiro, author Life Is A Fork In The Road

“We grow our tree of life through the forks we take. Each branch you grow becomes a fork that defines your life’s journey. The tree you see is the life you have grown based on all your choices big and small. If the branch you’re on is not where you want to be, grow a new branch and create a better tree for yourself." ~Don Shapiro, author Life Is A Fork In The Road
