Some quotey goodness for you
I recently participated in an email chain letter type thingy called an "inspirational exchange". I am not usually a fan of this sort of thing as a rule -- and feel very hesitant to impose on my friends -- but thought I'd give this one a whirl, seeing as it came from one of my favourite people.
The logistics of the "exchange" were a little convoluted (particularly for this baby brain) but the basic requirement was to email a few words of inspiration of encouragement to the person at the top of the list.
I sent my favourite Rumi poem.
After a few days, the following quotes arrived in my in-box from three women I don't know. Their timing was impeccable and their message profound, so I thought I'd share them here:
Take the attitude that what you're thinking and feeling is valuable stuff.
Before something great happens, everything falls apart.
Treat every person with kindness and respect - not because of who they are but who YOU are.
A fun way to receive the truth, no?
