And here it was, the last day and the final quote about to be revealed. The suspense couldn’t be more intense and all day at work I was contemplating what my final words would be, what final insight I would give and what final reference I would leave you with. Nothing seemed to fit and while there were many quotes that speak to me, none seemed to be the one that filled that certain spot of “The one”. There were good ones but that was all they were, “good”, the runner up from great, and while good is good, I wanted it to be great and found them to fall a bit short of the message I was searching to convey. Whatever message that was since I hadn’t even decided on the quote. Lol…ok this one got out of hand a little and I hope I didn’t lose you.
While pondering the final quote for the challenge of which I was nominated for by radhikagaur.wordpress.com, it became obvious that this was so much more than just a challenge to share a few quotes. Make sure you check out her amazing talent and blog for more insight as she is the one who started this all for me and allowed me to walk away feeling more enriched as a person, having learned a few insights myself.
Going through all the wonderful comments and the feedback I had received while at work, I still had no clue about the fitting quote. It was a comment my friend at scottishlegendwordpress.com left for my second quote that made me pause. He was looking forward to the grand finale, my final quote and he seemed to think that it would be a belter. I feel very honored by all the trust put into me, but man, talking about putting the pressure on and having to live up to it, or at least die trying. 😉
Thank you for your kindness and your always supporting words. Please everybody, stop by and check out this talented writer and show your support as you have shown it to me. You will fall in love and won’t regret it. Thank you, you are the best….
While reading the quotes of my nominees, something became apparent and I realized a profound meaning in all of this. It is safe to say that when we pick a quote to share, it’s somethings that lies close to our hearts. Something we can relate to, something we perhaps have experienced and something we want to share. Maybe it is something that made us feel good, perhaps something that has brought great suffering and pain. In either case, picking a quote is a very personal experience that allows you a glimpse into a persons soul. It can be a cry for help, something you can finally put out there to get some words off of your chest, but most likely it is something that allows your vulnerable side to emerge. And how often do we protect this vulnerable side and tuck it away for safe keeping due to being hurt too many times! It may even cause us to harden as a person and in the worst case become bitter.
It is a quote that allows us a form of expression, something to take solace in, a safe haven if you will. And so I realized that this 3 Day challenge was not just about ourselves and the quotes we picked, but also a big part of the readers who we aspire to touch with our chosen words. It allowed us to share something with great meaning while spreading love and understanding. All while bringing human kind closer together.
The quote I have chosen for my grand finale speaks for itself. I don’t know if it is the most profound quote there is, but this one is for all of you. The big hearted that are taken advantage of for their kindness and the ones that continue to fight the good fight and choose love. You matter more than you know and I’m here to remind you that you make a difference each day and every day. This quote is a reminder to not harden your heart, to believe in the silver lining and to just do your thing. To give love when the world judges you, to remain pure even in moments of deceit and to remember the words so you can shine on…you beautiful unique YOU ❤️
“Love is my gift to the world. I fill myself with love and I send that love out into the world. How others treat me is their path; how I react is mine.” – Dr. Wayne Dryer
