Can I Encourage You Today?

on January 30, 2013



Today I was uninspired to write something original and I had a hard time putting into words what I am thankful for.

I think the winter weather pushing through has plugged up any of my creativity that may lie deep within, 

but I did open up a book Yolanda gave me that was so encouraging!

I thought I would share some quotes today that are from this book.

(If you would like to find this book, it’s appropriately called “Go For It!” And is put out by Hallmark.)

I recommend reading each one slowly and with a pause to reflect before moving on.

Some being more profound than others,

I hope there is something that connects with your inner drive.

(The ? means there was no name by the quote.)


“Starting over is the bravest kind of starting there is.” Dan Taylor


“Look at life’s challenges not as setbacks but as opportunities to discover who you are.” ?


“Your future doesn’t lie ahead of you, waiting to happen.  It lies deep inside of you, waiting to be discovered.” ?


“Act as if it were impossible to fail.” Dorothea Brande


“Get out there and give real help!

Get out there and love!  Get out there and testify!   

Get out there and create whatever you can to inspire people to claim their divine being.  

This is what has to be done now.

There is no time for dallying.”  Mother Teresa

      Wow!! We had similar weather too! Winter often can lead to depression in so many because of lack of sun. Glad it gave you some positive light on your grey days:)

      Sincerely, Michelle

        Thanks, we’ve bought a “day light” and everyone has a “turn” with it 🙂 It seems to help all of us but nothing beats the sunshine.

    Hi Michelle — even on an “uninspired” day, you still come up with some great inspiring thoughts. Good on you to reach for “‘Go For It” instead of not posting anything. Way to go, Girl!
    Thank you once again, Alia
