MY INSPIRATIONS

As March comes roaring in, I remember the old saying that the month of March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. For the past two days it’s been true so far in Los Angeles–we are having rain and wind, both gentle and ferocious. The sun peeks out and then it clouds over, and the temperature hasn’t been over 60 degrees. Of course we are very spoiled here!

Spring is a good time to gather your thoughts and rejuvenate yourself for the year. That brings to mind the inspiring sayings I have collected for my Pinterest account. And the sayings go with many of my daughter, Heidi Giraud’s lovely and colorful paintings. The first one, which is on the wall next to my computer, I see as a woman emerging from confusion to self-knowledge and inspiration, as I have been several times in my life.

Emergence

Emergence

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. Dwell in possibility. Be patient, things will change for the better. The worst thing usually turns out to be the best thing. God has sent you nothing but angels. You are not alone.

The Eye Searching for Truth

The Eye Searching for Truth

What you think about, you bring about. Don’t take things personally…what other people say about you is their reality, not yours. Sometimes you have to let things go so there’s room for better things to come into your life. One of my favorite sayings comes from Vietnam and was used in a book by Leo Buscaglia: Learn to let go as easily as you grasp, or you’ll have your hands full and your mind empty. Every hello is the beginning of a goodbye, yet every goodbye can be the beginning of another hello. The moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens, so don’t give up.

Live your life and forget your age.  And C.S. Lewis said: You don’t have a Soul…You are a Soul. You have a body. Stars can’t shine without darkness. When it is all finished, you will discover it was never random.  Amen
