STOP THE BLEEDING

Remember you are loved…

Words can heal the soul

As I mentioned in a previous post, I will share more and more about me as time goes on. I am a quote collector; I even own a notebook specifically for quotes so I can keep up with them when I want to use them in the future. I write down quotes that inspire me in some way and today I would like to share them with you. Here are 10 of my favorite quotes, one of which comes from Albus Dumbledore, the esteemed head master of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry from Harry Potter (another one of my obsessions).

10. ‎”I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose we where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”-Perks of Being a Wallflower
9. “Don’t give up five minutes before the miracle occurs. To gain that worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else.” –Bernadette Devlin
8. “Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying ‘I will try again tomorrow’”. –Mary Anne Radmacher
7. “If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.” – Flavia Weedn
6. “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; But often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us”- Helen Keller
5. “It’s something everybody wants–for someone to see the hurt done to them and set it down like it matters.” – Sue Monk Kidd
4. “We are miracles and we’re not alone.” – Switchfoot

3. “Tears are words that the heart can’t express.” – Unknown
2. “In the end, it doesn’t matter that everything’s in pieces. It’s how you carry them.” – Garret Freymann-Weyr
1. “We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, but battle on.” – Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter

Got any ideas you would like me to talk about on this blog? Any topics dealing with mental health are welcome because I am always looking for creative input from my readers. I write for you!

Even though today’s post was all about quotes I will still end with the quote of the day, because I promised it to you.

“Use what talents you possess; the woods will be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” – Henry van Dyke

I love quote number two. That really is true and that is really inspirational to me. I have tried to think about my life in a way like that, but couldn’t put it into words. I also like how number one is from Harry Potter! I like your blog. I’ll try to keep reading it.

I love them all! I’ve always loved the Helen Keller one but hadn’t heard the one about trying again the next day. Cool.
