Thankfully Sweet Thursdays.
Some of the things that get me through hardships are amazing quotes by amazing people. Whether it's leading ladies like Eleanor Roosevelt or Anonymous people who end up saying something wise, I've always been intrigued by spiritual, touching, and moving quotes. I started this obsession with shared wisdom probably in college and as I would read numerous books for my major and books, magazines, and articles for pleasure, the intrigue continued. The fabulous finds were torn and kept in handy binders with clear sheet protectors, just in case I need to sift through wisdom to get through the day.
Now, in 2012 and partly 2011, I've jumped on a Pinterest bandwagon thanks to my buddy Ashley. As much as I love laying down and reading a good mag, it's nice to search through different "pins" on pinterest. One of my absolute favorite boards is my words for your soul board. They inspire me and push me and remind me to get back on track when I'm having a tough day.
Just like the words above, sometimes we all need a little reminder, to step back and take a deep breath, to get back on track, and to remember to love. There are times we are all a little bit selfish, a little bit mean, and a little bit inconsiderate, we all have those days. Yet, there are the times when we love deeply, love without expectation, and love without conditions.
And that's what I'm thankful for this thursday. Remembering that we are not always perfect because really, only God is. Remembering that when you truly love someone there are no conditions involved, no expectations involved, and no perfect fairytale. You love because there are no words to describe it. You love because it is a blessing to be able to open up and share your love and to be loved by someone else. For me...it's my BF, my family, his family, and my besties I consider my family =) My friends and all I care about.
Now, I wanna know, are any of you on pinterest? What's your favorite pins to pin? What's your favorite board? Please share!
