I thought it would be nice to share some inspirational quotes since the last blog post was a heavier topic then normal ( I highly recommend you read the our blog on suicide, if you have not).  Usually, we try to post about mental wellness.  Honestly, I think surrounding yourself with positive messages is part of mental wellness.  That is why I love inspirational quotes.  I find that often someone else’s words of wisdom can capture my thoughts or emotions more accurately than I can articulate.  I tend to surround myself with quotes that lift me up or give me inspiration.  They can be quick reminders of how I chose to live my life. Here are some of my favorite quotes to inspire you today:

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.  Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior.  Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits.  Keeps your habits positive because your habits become your values.  Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny. ”  Mahatma Ghandi

“Be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up having more.  If you concentrate of what you don’t have you will never have enough.” – Oprah

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”  Aesop

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”  – Fredrick Keonig

So often in counseling forgiveness is part of the process.  Whether it is forgiving someone else or forgiving ourselves, when we practice forgiveness life changes for the better.  I feel these quotes capture the challenge and importance of what it means to forgive.  I think they are great reminders for all of us:

“I can have peace of mind only when I forgive rather than judge.”  Gerald Jampolsky

“I never knew how strong I was until I had to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry, and accept an apology I never received.” – Unknown

“Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior.  Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart.” – Unknown

“Forgiveness doesn’t mean I accept what you did.  It means what happened doesn’t control me anymore.”  – Unknown

I hope you enjoyed reading these and that they lifted you up today!
