Chapter 5, Page 17, Book 11


Why do some people always see beautiful skies and grass and
lovely flowers and incredible human beings, while others are
hard-pressed to find anything or any place that is beautiful?

Leo Buscaglia

I'm always looking for quotes or stories that help to bring us back up on those days when life may be bringing us down.

A magazine asked its readers, What are the most inspiring words you have ever been told? Some answers were predictable, some were flippant, some were deep and profound but one that stood out in particular was the following: You may not know where life's road will lead you, but keep moving because God is walking with you

We all have those challenging days. Lately I sure have had my share of them. I keep reminding myself of the quote which I am today using as my Tuesday resolution, fall down seven times, stand up eight. I could let everything just overwhelm me or I can take action and do something about it

As we go through life, we can't always know what we are going to wake up to outside our window, but we'll each have some type of view. Our lives are ours to live, and the way we see our world is up to us. Don't miss those things outside your window today. It can be beautiful if we want it to be.

That is my 2 for this Tuesday: 2 quotes that will hopefully give your day and mine a lift up.

I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday.

Good quote. I love the stuff Leo Buscaglia writes. I also thought you were spot on about the VIEW outside our windows. I know I appreciate mine, however dreary the weather makes it. The beauty is there if you know where to look.
