Quote 1

Annie from Gentle Kindness has challenged me to share with you my three favourite quotes. This is super easy for me as I LOVE quotes. So here’s my first one:

It’s not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves – William Shakespeare

This is actually tattooed on my ribs so I had to use it really haha! But I still love this quote because I’m a great believer that we can change our paths whenever we want; it’s not all left up to fate.

    Thanks Lauren. Too many people are looking for someone or something to blame when things go wrong, when really they just need to look in the mirror.
    Have a great day

    I have found that Rumi’s poem, ‘the guest house’ has been a lifesaver on more than one occasion – it might not have the same effect on you, and I know its not a quote – but here it is anyway 🙂

    This being human is a guest house
    Every morning a new arrival.
    A joy, a depression, a meanness,
    some momentary awareness comes
    as an unexpected visitor.
    Welcome and entertain them all!
    Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
    who violently sweep your house
    empty of its furniture,
    still treat each guest honorably.
    He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
    The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
    meet them at the door laughing,
    and invite them in.
    Be grateful for whoever comes,
    because each has been sent
    as a guide from beyond.
