Six weeks words of wisdom

Posted in February tagged , , at 12:19 pm by viewfromthisdesk

I’ve mentioned before I’ve been keeping a diary this year to track extra meds or symptoms etc.  I’ve also been using it for notes about fun things like nights out or books I’ve read.  I then started jotting down inspirational things I’d found or seen or heard.  It may be pictures off the internet, song lyrics, quotes from a book.  As we’re half way through February, I thought I’d share them.  You may be able to send me some more.  I write them in random pages of my diary so they’re little surprises when I find them again.

* (January 1st had this one) Today is the first page of a 365 page book – write a good one.

* It is said some lives are linked across time, connected by an ancient calling that echoes through the ages.

* You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.

* If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.

* Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

* Happiness can be found in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.

* Confidence is sexy – walk into a room and own it!

* Sometimes I feel like giving up.  Then I remember I have a lot of people to prove wrong.

* You don’t always have to be a rock star.  It’s okay to be a groupie.

* Just because you took longer than others, doesn’t mean you failed.

* ‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there // ‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares. // Someone to love with my life in their hands. // There’s gotta be somebody for me like that. // ‘Cause nobody wants to go it on their own // And everyone wants to know they’re not alone. // Somebody else that feels the same somewhere. // There’s gotta be somebody for me out there. (Nickleback)

* Enter freely. Go safely and leave something of the happiness you bring! (Bram Stoker)

* I remember feeling lost.  It was bloody awful.  Hope you find your way.

* Positive thinking isn’t about expecting the best to happen every time.  But accepting that whatever happens, is the best for the moment.

* Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear. (Edgar Allan Poe)

* Some days, she has no idea how she’ll do it.  But every single day, it still gets done.

* You have to stop thinking you’ll be stuck in your situation forever.  We feel like our heart will never heal or we’ll never get out of this impossible struggle.  Don’t confuse a season for a lifetime.  Even your trials have an expiration date.  You will grow, life will change, things will work out. (Brittney Moses)

* Ships don’t sink because of all the water around them.  Ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you, get inside you and weigh you down.  Stay up.

* Don’t wait for things to get easier, simpler or better.  Life will always be complicated.  Learn to be happy right now.  Otherwise, you’ll run out of time.

* I’m not a stranger to the dark // Hide away, they say // ‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts // I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars // Run away, they say // No one will love you as you are // But I won’t let them break me down to dust // I know that there’s a place for us // For we are glorious. (This is Me, Greatest Showman)



  1. I need to remember every word. EVERY single word. May I share? `Kim
