♥DAILY LOVE TIP – Tuesday November 1, 2011
I thought since we’ve had 3 wise ♡men [♥DAILY LOVE TIP – Sunday August 21, 2011….] it’s now time to do a post on 3 wise ♡women……
Well, that got me thinking about who would be the 3 wise ♡women……I had a massage today which gave me glorious time to just reflect and contemplate …..and I ended up spending most of the two hours thinking about all the women who have influenced and inspired me and who stand out for me……what a magnificient circle of women I came up with…….. and then the task of reducing it to 3………..what a challenge!….So deciding Maya Angelou would be one of them I started researching her quotes and sayings…..and found such an abundance of wisdom I decided to just focus on her today…… Says Maya –
“Each of us, famous or infamous, is a role model for somebody, and if we aren’t, we should behave as though we are – cheerful, kind, loving, courteous. Because you can be sure someone is watching and taking deliberate and diligent notes.”………
“The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.” ~ Maya Angelou
“First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love. ” ~ Maya Angelou
“Nothing will work unless you do.” ~ Maya Angelou
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”~ Maya Angelou
♥MIRRORING TOPIC: share with someone and have them ♥MIRROR you for a minimum of 5 minutes about what stands out and impacts you in Maya’s quotes. Then switch and you ♥MIRROR them. Also share about which wise women have influenced you in your life and why? I’d love to make a list of women who influence and why if you would be willing to share……
Question for you: for the women what sort of woman would you like to be known as?…… And for the guys what qualities do you admire and value in your woman and women in general?…….
“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” ~Maya Angelou
Touched and filled and grateful for Maya Angelou and many other women like her….
