GOOD MORNING READERS AND FELLOW BLOGGERS, MAY THIS BLOG FIND YOU IN GREAT SPIRITS!
Today I would like to dedicate my blog to “WEDNESDAY WOMAN”, and she is the one and only OPRAH WINFREY !
In addition to sharing the best zodiac sign, this beautiful, successful, inspirational, motivating and ambitious woman, is someone we should all know. Oprah Winfrey entertained us with her talk shows, gained her audience’s respect by discussing the topics that matter and finally topped it off with her “OWN NETWORK”. There is so many things that I can say about this phenomenal woman, but I will let you research her yourself. My objective today on my blog, is to share some of her best inspiring quotes, starting with the one above.
“TURN YOUR WOUNDS INTO WISDOM”
This quote speaks so many volumes to me, that it most definitely needed to be shared. The first time I came across this quote, I was fulfilled instantly because wounds are something we all possess. But to have the ability to turn them into wisdom, is a great example of making lemonade out of lemons. Despite all of the trials and tribulations you encountered in your journey of life, the wounds are evidence that you survived and surpassed your situations. This in turn becomes wisdom, EXPERIENCE, that you have on your belt now and when you know better, you do better. Next time you recall a wound or even accumulate new ones, understand that these wounds are from your learning experience and share that lesson with yourself and others!
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am always giving thanks and showing gratitude. Matter fact when people ask how am I doing, my response is always the honest answer…“THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL”! Therefor, I tell you all that this quote is true in it’s complete nature. Many of us fail to identify or show appreciation for what we do have, because we are too focused on what we don’t have. “WHEN YOU PRAISE, YOU RAISE….WHEN YOU COMPLAIN, YOU REMAIN“, and showing gratitude daily is so soothing and nurturing for your soul. Continue to count your blessings, but more importantly you need to be thankful for them as well. Next time you think about what you don’t have, make an effort to think about all that you have that others don’t, AND JUST SHOW SOME APPRECIATION!
Last, but definitely not least….I LOVE THIS QUOTE AND LIVE BY IT COMPLETELY! In daily efforts towards improvement, progress, goal setting and achievements….you must be mindful of those that are around you. Why would you want to be around individuals who bring you down, that sounds very naive. But rather, surround yourself with positive energy vibes, that will lift you up and take you to higher levels. Unfortunately I was once there, not understanding the depth of this statement and then came along a “SPARROW” and shared that great news in my ear. From that day forward, I promised myself that I would do just that and share this beneficial tactic to others for themselves. One of the reasons why I even motivate and inspire others like I do, for the very nature of this quote alone!
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY “WEDNESDAY WOMAN” AND UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, BE SAFE AND HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!!
