Quote Mantras

08/29/12 I’ve been meaning to move my quotes page to a quotes category for some time now.

Today I finally just took the plunge, making some tweaks along the way.

Have a good day Lovies!

I love quotes, but I rarely seek them out. I like them best when they come to me through a  random FB status update, or the whiteboard in my old boss’s office. Wise  words of wisdom picked up from a friend, or a colleague or  phrases from a book or a song.    Something about the quote has to move or enlighten me in that moment, sort of like a little message from GOD ala the karma of the divine universe.   Something about it has to stick around and serve its purpose.  My Mantras are a part of my personality, but  I often fall guilty of forgetting or losing sight of the others that moved me in  a moment.  I’ve always kind of wanted a place to keep them all written down, like maybe a quote journal….  I’m a working Mother, this IS my quote journal.    I can write them down here and then actually have that handy place to come and review when I need to be reminded or add and purge.  and voila, a quote page is born.

Best,

Lola

Live Laugh Ponder Grow

I’m pretty proud of myself for making it 7 straight days writing.  My goal was to write every day for the first 10 days of June leading up to the 1 year anniversary of starting this blog  culminating in some sort of reflection on the last year post I haven’t written but is bouncing around in my head.   I can still remember how I felt right about this time last year. I was  frustrated, angry at times and quite rebellious.  No one was going to shut me up darnit!  I’m infinitely glad I chose to speak, shout, and whisper my stories.     It’s been a long week and I’m pooped.  I’ve grabbed a few more of my favorite pins from Pinterest. I’ve got them all on a board called Live Laugh Ponder  Grow. I think those words sum up my year and life quite simply.  None of these are my own creations, but I wish I could focus long enough to figure out how to take some of the quotes from my writing and make some pretty “pins”, maybe one day.
