Wise Words Every Woman Needs to Hear
As I was combing through the myriad articles on Huffington Post, I found this beautiful, simple little post that I just had to share. It's called "9 Pieces of Advice Every Woman Needs", but the truth is that these wise words are for men too. “The more room you give yourself to express your true thoughts and feelings, the more room there is for your wisdom to emerge.” -- Marianne Williamson “Share with people who've earned the right to hear your story.” -- Dr. Brené Brown “Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. ... Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing.” -- Miranda July “Love liberates. Love -- not sentimentality, not mush -- but true love gives you enough courage that you can say to somebody, 'Don't do that, baby.' And the person will know you're not preaching but teaching.” -- Dr. Maya Angelou “Whatever you do in life, remember: Think higher and feel deeper. It cannot be bad if you do that.” -- Elie Wiesel “Perhaps the noblest private act is the unheralded effort to ... open our hearts once they've closed, to open our souls once they've shied away.” -- Mark Nepo “There's a place in you that you must keep inviolate. You must keep it pristine. Clean. So that nobody has a right to curse you or treat you badly. Nobody. No mother, father, no wife, no husband, no -- nobody. You have to have a place where you say: 'Stop it. Back up. Don't you know I'm a child of God?'” -- Dr. Maya Angelou “Most unhappy people need to learn just one lesson: how to see themselves through the lens of genuine compassion and treat themselves accordingly.” -- Martha Beck “No one feels strong when she examines her own weakness. But in facing weakness, you learn how much there is in you, and you find real strength.” -- Pat Summitt I love how real the quotes are, and they're a simple reminder of the truly important things in life. Women - and men - take these to heart!
