Two Inspirational Quotes

There are several defining moments in life. When we reflect upon what is most important in our lives – it always comes down to relationships. Sharing two quotes by Persian poet and mystic Rumi (1207-1273) that struck me and a photo of two love birds. I wonder where they will fly off to next.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

Vocations – What Is Yours?

Each man has his own vocation. The talent is the call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting him thither to endless exertion. He is like a ship in a river; he runs against obstructions on every side but one, on that side all obstruction is taken away and he sweeps serenely over a deepening channel into an infinite sea…He has no rival. For the more truly he consults his own powers, the more difference will his work exhibit from the work of any other.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bloom Where You Are

It’s easy to focus on the past and the future and miss out on living your best life now. Life is a series of moments and then you pass. Make the most of your present to think great thoughts and move mountains.

Keep Hiking

For the times you just want to get off that mountain. Keep moving forward. You’re on your way to great things! Believe in yourself! Believe in your journey. If you keep moving there will always be others God places to assist along the way. It may not always be obvious what path to take but no path to greatness is simple or easy. Fight through it.
