Words to Inspire

I’ve always had a fascination with quotes.  There is something about a small collection of words packing a lot of punch that always makes me smile or feel inspired. Maybe it is silly to some that a simple phrase, reminder or note of encouragement could result in big change but I myself find it quite possible. One of my favorite boards on Pinterest happens to be ‘Quotes I Dig‘ and I’m always elated to add a new one to the mix. When life gets hectic or I’m finding myself close to the edge and needing to be brought back to my senses I simply need to read a few of these and I’m reminded of what is important… to let the little stresses go… to try something new, be adventurous and courageous or even to laugh out loud like a loon!

Quotes are beautiful in my opinion. They spark a new thought or feeling and help keep us trudging along. For behind every quote was someone like you or me thinking they needed a change or a lift in that moment and they happily shared such a thought.. brilliant! These past few weeks I’ve found myself searching for the perfect quote almost daily to run over and over in my mind and keep myself focused on something positive and light when things may seem quite heavy and difficult. With 3 lil ones it can be hard to lose myself in a book as I adore doing and so quotes help fill that void of written words. I’m grateful for them.

Some of my favorite quotes involve reminders of how we should treat others. I always find that keeping ourselves open to sharing kind words and deeds for others goes a long way in aiding our own self worth and growth. It is quite easy to believe that putting others first is sometimes hard with our busy schedules and own household to keep track of… but really it can be something as small as a card, phone call, shared quote through twitter or FB and more. No humble thought for another is ever too small!

So if you have some quotes reserved in a special place and want to share then by all means do! I’d love some new pieces for my collection and hope to inspire new writings as well.

Pinning: A Festive Summer

A Weekly Pinterest Link-Up? Talk about my kind of fun!  Many of you are aware of how addicted I am to “pinning” and when I found Kimberly from ‘A Night Owl’ inviting all to join up for a Monday Pinfest I was so excited!  Besides, why wouldn’t I want to win the title of “Pinning-est” with my best Pinterest finds?

This is the last week of school for my oldest and she is already after me for Summer party ideas and what to do with her friends. So I’ve been gathering some “pins” of yummy creations to whip up for the kids as well as new outdoor inspirations:
