Pinspiration

I have basically spent half of this year on Pinterest (Ohhh, New Years jokes, you never get old.) I thought I'd share a few favorite quotes and ideas that I've stumbled across lately. All good things to keep in mind as we embark on this fresh start!

what to focus on.

Bob Marley

always good to remember when someone tries to get you down

“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”  Hazrat Inayat Khan (Thanks K <3 )

I especially love this last one. It's strange to think about, but most of the people you know are dealing with something really tough right now. Some people air their displeasures publicly (we all see a dozen "Well, my day/life sucks!" FB statuses a day), some people take them out on others via rudeness or passive aggressiveness. I'm always impressed and inspired by people who are able to keep the attitude of "Of course I'm dealing with some awful things, but there are wonderful things in the world, too."
