I'm not sure if this has been done before but something that has really helped me in my recovery is finding inspirational quotes or sayings and keeping them visible for me to see when I'm in need of some motivation or inspiration.

Here are some of my favourites to get you started:

-"Don't let what you can't do stop you from doing what you can do!"

-"If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin."

-"To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance."
<---This is one of my favourites :D

Now it's your turn :)

One of my friends had this as his facebook status and I loved it:

"...then I will find new strength and rise on wings like eagles, and I will run and not grow weary and I will walk and not be faint!"

I really really like this, even wrote it on my wall :) :

"I will not die an unlived life
I will not live in fear of falling
Or of catching fire
I choose to inhabit my days
To allow my living to open me
Making me less afraid
More accessible
To loosen my heart
So that it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise
I choose to risk my significance.
To live so that that which comes to me as seed
Goes to the next as blossom
And that which comes to me as blossom
Goes on as fruit."

Hi there,

Truly nice collection....Thanks for ur sharing guys:)


"Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, over steep ways to the stars, fulfills itself."

"May the road rise to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand."



Regards
Victoria Heden

From "Memory" Cats:
"Daylight,
I must wait for sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in.
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin."

"You're so much more than good enough."

:)

"Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength."

Love all of those quotes
here are some of my favourites

'When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking
at it'- Winnie the Pooh

Living unloved is like clipping a bird's wings and removing it's ability to fly. Pain has a way of clipping our wins and keeping us from being able to fly. And it it's left unresolved for very long, you can almost forget that you were ever created to fly in the first place'

There is something to be gained from commitment. There are rewards for staying when you would rather leave. And there is something to be said for running up that hill, when you would rather slide down it.

and one of my favourites that me and my friend are planning on adapting and using part of as a tattoo-

'i rise. up from a past rooted in pain
i rise. leaving behind nights of terror and fear
i rise. into a daybreak that's wondrously clear'

"Tough times never last, but tough people do."

"To have suffered much is like knowing many languages, it gives the suffer access to many more people."


"If you find a path with no obstacles, it's probably a path that doesn't lead any where."



"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 most frightens us.

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small
Does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
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 everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others."

"Courage"

okay so it's not really a quote, but it was a line in the most recent Glee episode that one of the new characters told Kurt constantly, in a random text or something along those lines, and I think that its something we all need at some points in recovery. The courage to say no to this evil thing that has controlled our lives so strictly. The courage to get better for yourself and not everyone else. The courage to say screw it and eat that cookie that you have been eying for the past hour instead of letting the voice in your head convince you that it's perfectly normal to obsess over a cookie for an hour without ever eating it.

The courage to just be alive.

LOVE these quotes. Here's one:

Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway.

:) I think that one is cute!
