I came accross two very powerful quotes in the last days and felt an urge to share. On my journey to heal myself, I discovered some simple sayings can dramatically change my way of seeing life and handling it. I also feel I could help change your perception by sharing with you. Who knows... Maybe these words will found a resonance in you as they did in me. Read and reflect.

"Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." - Og Mandino

"We have the ability now to get to know our little child within us. We have neglected that child for a long time. Like any child they are going to get your attention one way or another. We have let her run wild in the streets with our credit cards. She has neglected to clean her room and to eat good foods. She stays up way to late and doesn't get enough sleep! This makes her cranky. Oh and she spends way too much time on the computer and doesn't get enough exercise. Do you know anyone who would allow her children to do this? So why do you allow yourself to do this?" - FlyLady

A special one for my french friends :)

"(...) Pourquoi prend-on le temps de s’émerveiller devant un chevreuil ou un orignal, pour ensuite ne porter aucune attention à un écureuil? C’est la rareté, bien sûr. Mais quelle drôle d’idée, lorsqu’on prend le temps d’y penser! Ce n’est pas le degré d’originalité d’une expérience qui la rend extraordinaire, mais notre degré de réceptivité et la qualité de l’attention qu’on choisit de lui consacrer. On peut déguster un simple verre de jus de pomme et en retirer énormément de satisfaction, tout comme on peut manger un super gelato à 5 $ la bouchée sans même le goûter parce qu’on est trop préoccupé. C’est définitivement l’état intérieur dans lequel on est qui est délicieux, non pas ce qui est en train de se passer à l’extérieur…" Marie-Pier Charron
