Quotes of the Day : Strength

Life can be filled with challenges. Sometimes you just feel totally beaten up and need comforting arms and encouraging thoughts to soothe your soul. Look within yourself to find your strength. We gain strength through practice and making efforts to learn from mistakes. It's also during your darkest or fearful moments, that you gather your courage and call upon your greatest strength to pull you through those days. That's when you learn to stretch your strength. These quotes our my favorite when it comes to having strength in my everyday life.  Remember you too are a woman of strength and let these strength quotes speak to you!

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.-- Author Unknown

Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out.-- Katherine Dunham

It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more 'manhood' to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.-- Alex Karras

Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.-- Tao Te Ching

Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.-- Drew Barrymore

Our strength grows out of our weaknesses.-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.-- Arnold Schwarzenegger

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.-- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Women are like teabags. We don't know our true strength until we are in hot water!-- Eleanor Roosevelt

I  needed these quotes today as I needed to remind myself  that I have true strength within myself.  Remember that no matter what you are Strong & Beautiful.

Today well since yesterday has been a very stressful., life changing evaluation of my life literally.  Things have been a huge struggle and it has made me realize that I have to make a major change in my own personal life.  This poem is making me realize that I am just like an Eagle and have to remember that always; no matter what am going through. Here is the poem that made me realize this:

:"Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, the eagle sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it."

Stay Strong and Fly Like An Eagle :)

Confidence Video:

This song is perfect for today to go along with the quotes that I previously wrote: Every women should feel beautiful, no matter what :)


Confidence is What Makes a Women Sexy & Beautiful

Well today I am feeling very Confident & Sexy., I guess because more and more I am finding out who I really am as a person. I'd like to share these quotes with you today as I find them very inspiring:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Nelson Mandela.

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose" Dolly Parton.

“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know -- but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay." Virginia Satir

Love this quotes enjoy them as much as I am right now :)

Quotes: I will start writing for u!

I  love quotes!  Quotes are little golden nuggets of wisdom – that make me think, challenge my mindset, and many times, help to change my perspective.  For years, whenever I came across a positive quote I would write it down in my journal, stick it on the bathroom mirror, and even; all over my walls when I was in pageants.As a  person who learned to become optimistic, I realized that a positive quote could make the difference between having a good day or a bad day.  I am inspired by people who come through adversity, wiser, kinder, and resilient.  That's why I decided to everyday share a quote with you.  Here are some that have inspired me one way or the other.  Enjoy & Feedback is Always Welcomed!

  1. Of all the judgments we pass in life, none is more important than the judgment we pass on ourselves. Nathaniel Branden
  2. Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different. Stacey Charter
  3. You need to claim the events in your life to make yourself yours. Anne-Wilson Schaef
  4. Genuine beginnings begin within us, even when they are brought to our attention by external opportunities. William Bridges
  5. If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away. Henry David Thoreau
  6. Accept no one’s definition of your life. Define yourself. Harry Feinstein
  7. To accept ourselves as we are means to value our imperfections as much as our perfections. Sandra Bierig
  8. Be yourself. An original is always worth more than a copy.
  9. Joy exists only in self-acceptance. Seek perfect acceptance, not a perfect life.
I will post a new Quote M-F.  Be Uplifted, Be Inspired and Stay True to YourSelf!

Love, Shelly
