3 Day quote challenge – The final one

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

Author:

I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. Firstly I would like to say thank you so much for your kind words it is very gratifying that you think if me that way. It seems that every time I read something you have written that i just want to thank you.

    I am sorry if I put any undue pressure on you but you needn’t have worried your last quote is perfect and to be honest it sums you up perfectly. From what I have read of your blog this is you down to a tee.

    The feelings are evident in everything that you write you have such a positive out look on life that i wish i shared.

    Thank you for nominating me for this challenge it has let me get to know you, others and myself better it has been such a pleasure

    1. Awe thank you so so much, you always touch my heart in such a big way and the pleasure is all mine. You know I was teasing about the pressure 😉 but like you said before, I also think we shared a few adversities in life which makes us relate even more and causes us to strive for a positive message.
      And as far as the positive outlook on life, believe me it is not always easy and if you continue to read my blog you will learn I had my share of tough times. For me it is a choice as I realize that if I fall victim to those adversities I will also lose myself and become bitter, and that I don’t want. It is hard some days but there is nothing I can change anymore and therefore I try to let it go as best as I can.
      How sweet of you to see me in this way regarding my last quote. I wanted it to be more about everybody else because I know people struggle with it and I hope it could help.
      As far as nominating you, it was the best decision I have made and I am so glad that you excepted the challenge and allowed us all to get to know you even more. You are an amazing person and I’m blessed to have found you and have you as somebody that takes the time to read what I write about. Thank you so much, hugs.

      1. You may have wanted it to refer to others, but from what I’ve seen it most definitely applies to you, you are a true old soul and one of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet.
        One of the things I have learned in my life is that when you come up against adversities in life turning angry and bitter is the easiest route to take, I will admit that for a good many years I did take this route. I was cold, hard and broken. It took almost ten years for me to get close back to how I was before. It was hard, but I managed it, wit the side effect of not being as trusting as I once was.
        Anyway, i have rambled on enough, and I am sorry to have done so. But I want you to know that you are the one that is the truly special person and I wish you nothing but happiness

      2. You spoil me with your kind words and you are right as far as being an old soul. It takes one to know one I would say, so welcome to the senior citizen home, lol, just kidding 😉. I think it brings great insight being an old soul which can be a blessing or a curse as others don’t see things the same.
        I am so glad you found your way back and you are right, anybody can take the easy way out and another reason why it is you who is a special soul. You fought for what you believe in and no matter who tough the fight you also have that warrior spirit deep inside you.
        And yes, innocent until proven guilty is my motto and yet I have become more cautious when it comes to trust.

      3. It’s not spoiling you when it’s true.
        And every word is true; you aren’t the first person to call be a fighter/warrior (it is really weird for me to think that way) but fighting back is something I’m built for whiter it’s for me, or for others and I get the impression that you are exactly the same. You will fight for others no matter what the situation or the consequences may be.

      4. True and it’s not so much a matter of being right for me but mostly the principles I stand up for, even if it causes me to get hurt in the process. I think the world needs people like that, the ones that fight for others and their own life, to inspire and help those that don’t know how. I hope I can do this along the way at some point, as it makes it all worthwhile. Helping someone else is very powerful and the greatest reward you could ever achieve. And that should definitely be a part of your legend my Scottish friend 😉.
        I know you are already doing this in all you do…every day.
