Quote of the Week

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. 
- Ana├»s Nin, Diary, 1969

This is an unintentional continuation of the last several weeks' thought process.  We've talked about hindsight being the key to the future as it enables us to see the possibilities. Then we touched on our inner strength, which is always there, but sometimes seems harder to access.

This week we look at life and how full it is or maybe how lacking it seems.  Courage and inner strength are closely related and tie into our ability to make the most of what life has to offer.  

The point of today's quote is about finding the courage to move forward and broaden our horizons.  We only get out of life what we put into it, and sometimes that takes strength, courage and the ability to learn from our mistakes, as well as the courage to risk making those mistakes in the first place.

Quote of the Week

We find in ourselves the strength to overcome every obstacle, which is a good thing, because we also find in ourselves every obstacle. Robert Brault

Once again we take a look at the insight and humor of Robert Brault.  His quotes have appeared on Roses to Rainbows from time to time as I seek out words of wisdom, inspiration and humor.  He is a freelance writer who has been contributing to various publications for over 40 years.  He has recently published a book titled Round Up The Usual Suspects: Thoughts On Just About Everything.

Today we focus on our strength.  Sometimes we think - I can't do that, or I'll never get through this (see last week's quote).  

For many of us our problems stem from us turning minor setbacks into road blocks. However, within ourselves we have the strength required to see us through, to overcome life's bumps and change the road blocks back into merely minor setbacks. 

In reality, though, not all of life's problems are just bumps in the road or minor setbacks that could have been changed or avoided by a different mindset, but we must still focus our inner strength to meet these challenges.

Autumn's Glory

Their fiery colors
Set the afternoon ablaze
Nature's off her meds
