Everyday Inspiration: Day 5; Hook ‘Em With a Quote

The following quote is by former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

The reason why this is one of my favorite quotes is because I never believed in myself nor my dreams. It wasn’t till I made an active choice to become in active recovery with my mental health challenges that this particular quote hit home for me. I have a future and my future has beauty even when I have some dark days. I love the fact I have dreams and a future ahead of me even when I have some dark days like everyone else. I am glad my dark days are far and few between the good days.

Developing Your Eye; Day 1: Home

A sunset taken from my home. I looked out my west window and saw this wonderful sunset. I admit at first I thought it was fire but quickly realized it was and is a beautiful sunset.

I had gotten home from doing something and the first thing I noticed was the sunset outside my west window. It was and is so beautiful I had to take a picture of it and am glad to be able to share you with all of you. I do have to say the photo doesn’t due the beauty justice but at least you can still see the beauty. I love when I am home and see this type of beauty.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 5: Hook ‘Em with a Quote

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Eleanor Roosevelt

I remember hearing this quote for the first time in junior high school and never really though much of it back then. When I started my recovery process with multiple mental health diagnosis, this quote hit me like a ton of bricks. It helped me continue with my recovery as well realizing that the future is beautiful. The future is beautiful because you never know what is going to happen or what you will see.

The Words of A Child

Good Evening, World!!! So far today has been a quiet stay at home day. It has been a day that I have not done much but binge watch television with my cat, Billie Dean on my lap. The Seattle weather has been quite helpful in that as it has been the typical Seattle gloom.

I have spent most of the day with my cat Billie Dean in my lap. Billie sat in my lap as I watched The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross. I really enjoy this show for several reasons and am thrilled that Billie spent most of that time in lap as I watched it.

After watching The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross as Billie was curled up in my lap I decided to get on social media. Specifically, I went on Facebook as it is the the only social media account I have under my given name. (I do have a Facebook account as well as a Twitter account under my pen name of Gertie. You can find me under Gerties Journey on both social media accounts.) Anyway, when I was on Facebook under my given name, a friend of mine in the peer counseling community posted a quote from one of her children came up of a quote that I feel is great. My friends, child’s name is Avenlea Margaret. (Yes, I was given permission to mention my friends daughter’s name on here by both my friend and their daughter.) Avenlea Margaret is a creative person which doesn’t surprise me that she came up with the quote she did.

Avenlea Margaret’s quote is: “There’s no such thing as ugly. There’s just different ways to be beautiful.” I personally love this quote as it is an honest quote that comes from the mouth of an innocent child. A child that sees there are different ways to be beautiful and different ways to see beauty. Avenlea Margaret is wise beyond her years and hope to read more quotes she says on her parents Facebook account. It is my hope with posting this that you are able to see that there is only beauty in this world and it just looks differently just like Avenlea stated.

I do not have much more to say. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great rest of you Monday. Peace Out, World!!!
