Reflections on Resilient Living: Inspirational Quotations and Life Lessons on Creating a Life You Love by Marquita Herald
— and I couldn't agree more!
Life's a challenge — Marquita's collection of inspirational quotes and life lessons provides encouragement and reminds us that we're not alone in facing these challenges. These words of wisdom are grouped into relevant chapters; so if you're looking for guidance to a particular problem, it's easy to navigate and discover a myriad of quotations that are certain to help you engage a positive mindset.
I only meant to read the first chapter; "Life's Crossroads"; but continued until way past my bedtime, then couldn't wait to pick up again the next evening. These quotations really bring you up and encourage you to think …
As expected there's the great philosophers, and my favourite woman of substance, Eleanor Roosevelt; but there's also contemporary advisors; Actor Michael J Fox; Author Neil Gaiman, Songster Jason Mraz et al providing real down to earth advice, not forgetting the lovely Marquita Herald herself, who so wisely says:
"Challenge yourself. Dare to risk, to fail and succeed, above all to achieve your full potential. Don't settle for a life that is mediocre or good enough. Believe with all your heart that you are not only capable of achieving your dreams, but that you deserve to."
We are all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're going to live. So, do it. Decide. Will you be the passenger in your life journey or the driver? What will your legacy be? Are you living the life you want to live? Can you be braver, stronger, kinder or more compassionate? Decide. Then commit to creating a life you love.
