I am spending this week with my best friend, Courtney, and his finace, Char, in Seattle. This is the first time I’ve ever been to the city, and I absolutely adore it. It’s super vegan and queer, so I feel like I can fit in quite nicely. The weather has been perfect my time here so far, and the weather reports it should stay that way. We’ve been walking a lot, exploring and eating out. It’s pretty grand.
This week I want to “mix it up” a bit, I suppose. Instead of seven specific ways to kick this week’s ass, I’m going to share seven inspirational quotes and I want you to do something with each of them. Make it a point to be the most positive and enthusiastic person you possibly can be this week. Share kind and wise words with those around you whenever possible.
- Write one of the quotes on a post card and mail it to a friend.
- Write one of the quotes on your mirror in a dry erase marker.
- Create a piece of artwork that includes one of the quotes.
- Read one of the quotes aloud each morning.
- Write one of the quotes on a friend’s Facebook wall, or use it as your status.
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” – Denis Waitley
“If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.” – Frank Zappa
“Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.” – Francesca Reigler
“Every thought is a seed. If you plant crab apples, don’t count on harvesting Golden Delicious.” – Bill Meyer
“Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.” – Doris Day
“Your future depends on many things, but mostly on you.” – Frank Tyger
“Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy — because we will always want to have something else or something more.” – Brother David Steindl-Rast
Put these kind words to some good use! (: Wishing you an absolutely amazing week. ❤
