This is one of my very favorite quotes. I think I’ve posted it twice, lol. It goes well with Brene Brown’s book “Rising Strong” which was instrumental in getting me from there to here in the last 6 months. Just keep on rising!!!!
Awesome reference to Brene’s book. I love her work. And her latest https://www.brainpickings.org/2015/09/02/rising-strong-brene-brown/ aligns perfectly with this quote. (Love how you’ve posted it twice.) Thanks for connecting the dots with Rising Strong.💫🌟
Oh she’s my hero! Lol. She and Liz Gilbert. Love love love them !
OMG, me too, me too!! I just listened to Rising Strong and Big Magic this past year, both at least twice. In fact, I listened to Big Magic right before the AtoZ Challenge started this month, and it really helped me get over my fears and hesitations. Because of that inspiration, I have taken more risks with my writing during this challenge than I ever thought I would! Hooooraaaaaaaayy!! 😀 I also signed up for Brene Brown’s Living Brave Semester, which I think may be over already, and I’m still working on the second week’s lessons… Oh well, it’s always a work in progress! So glad to connect to you all here! 😀
I did her free class, the Anatomy of Trust. I have watched that video maybe 10 times, lol. And her TED talk in vulnerability maybe 20! She is SO fabulous. Nice to meet a few more like minded people!
This is from Brene’s site CourageWorks.com. She interviews Oprah. Some really good stuff here. If you’ve already seen it, sorry to be redundant, but if you haven’t. you will probably enjoy it!
Thank you! This is fantastic.
Loved the quotation. Thanks for the url to Brene Brown- an introduction for me. The book is now on my wish-list.
Thank you for all this info, and for the great quote. Who is it?
One of my favorite quotes that’s been very present with me recently is, ‘There are no great things, there are only small things done with great love.’ That’s Mother Teresa. 💖
Thanks for sharing! I can see why it’s one of your favourites. Mother Teresa is a magnificent soul.
“You have seen my descent now watch my rising.” is by Rumi. Based on your blog, I bet you know his work well.🌷
Ah I thought so. God I love Rumi. I have a few books of his and have also read a book by his teacher Shams of Tabriz. Thanks again. 😀
This reminded of me of my father, who raised us on Rumi. Thanks for the nostalgia.
One of my practices is the overcoming of fear and the idea of limitation. A great inspiration to me in this practice are Special Operations soldiers who go through a tremendously challenging selection, then training process, where mindset is more important than physical strength. My husband was a Special Forces soldier (Green Beret). He is an inspiration. His favorite motto:
“It’s mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.”
Other words of inspiration for me:
Motto of the SAS (Special Air Service, British ‘Special Forces’):
“Who Dares Wins”
“Only those who risk going too far will ever know how far they can go.”
We are capable of so much more than we think we are.
Wonderful strategies! I agree. Mindset is everything. Incredible inspiration from your husband’s work. Thank you for sharing.
This quote gets me through a lot.
“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different;
enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will);
being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” ~James Baraz
I really need to remember that today.
