It's that time of year again. I don't like tossing planners because I'm nostalgic... but I also love the possibilities and freshness of a new planner for a new year.
Last year's planner contained awesome quotes. Before I throw it out, I wanted to record some of my favorites:
"Each difficult moment has the potential to open my eyes and open my heart."
- Myla Kabat-Zinn
"Believe in the power of your own choices to re-create the world."
- Deborah Ellis
"Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared."
- Eddie Rickenbacker
"Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well."
"Seeing yourself as you want to be is the key to personal growth."
"Joy lies in the flight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself."
- Mahatma Gandhi
"When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."
- Audre Lorde
"Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do."
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"Unless you try to do something beyond what you have mastered, you will never grow."
- C. R. Lawton
"What you risk reveals what you value."
- Jeanette Winterson
"The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent in the world itself."
