I love them. Some days there are many. They are meaningful and I am grateful to those who post them because the wisdom and hope that springs from the page brightens my spirit and makes my day much easier.
A few days ago something I read suggested taking one of those quotes, which is particularly meaningful and putting it somewhere to see for the week. It could be printed and put in your day planner, pasted on a wall or in the car. Good advice so I have grabbed on to it in my usual “tailored to Peggy” sort of way.
At the beginning of the year I found a quote which was particularly meaningful and so I would not forget it I posted it as the background on my computer screen. Every day I was greeted with, “Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Every day is a fresh start. Each day is a new beginning. Every morning we wake up is the first day of a our new life.”
You can see the quote above and note that I had to do some work on it to make it fit my computer screen and still have all those little icons on the left of the screen. I just took a copy of the picture, dropped it in “Paint” and made a new picture with the large open space on the left hand side. It works for me and I have enjoyed it but today it was time for something new. It may not happen every week, because I am learning to give myself some space in routines, but I will make an effort to change it from time to time so I am given one thought for consistent meditation.
With all these wonderful quotes I also find it important to save them so I have a file on both my phone and computer for them. I also have an Encouragement Board on Pinterest site where I am beginning to store a few as well. ( Your are welcome to visit the Pinterst Board) All of these will be handy for the weekly change of view on the screen and they are also nice to have in reserve if I need something special to send to a friend in need of a boost or if Facebook posts aren’t really meeting my needs one day.
If you have ideas about how to make all those great quotes work please feel free to share.
This is the one I’ll be looking at this week.
