Quotes in The Key of Life

Accent Color Bar 2

I absolutely love quotes. I have great gratitude and appreciation for the eloquently expressed thoughts of others that come from a place of experienced wisdom? I believe these expressed thoughts are the shared keys of life meant to reassure, enlighten, or nudge those who have agreed to travel the same path. And if we are wise, when we come across them, we will ponder their significance. For we came across them at a time and part of our journey not by chance—but for reason.

Fifteen years ago, when I begin learning to give myself permission, I started keeping an electronic folder of the quotes I came across that provided a message for my spirit. Over the years I have quite a collection of quotes that still inspire and reassure me. I share some of them here to inspire you as you consider starting your own journey towards self-permission.  May you find your voice of love, meaningful action, and creative intellect.

Bullet PointI must learn to love the fool in me the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. This is the completeness of me I must love. ~Theodore Isaac Rubin


Bullet Point_2When I look back on my life, I see pain, mistakes and heart ache. When I look in the mirror I see strength, learned lessons, and pride in myself.”  ~Unknown
