I always felt like those ruminations and affirmations of self that people post on Facebook and Twitter in silly fonts and with inspirational backgrounds were just that- cheesy. But lately, I’ve taken to many of them simply because I found myself in a place that was darker and more cynical than I wanted and because I needed frequent reminders that I did not want to be cynical or jaded any more.
So here are some of my favorites, including the blog post that really started this whole excursion. I don’t necessarily subscribe to everything they say let alone practice all of these things. But I’d rather spend my time thinking about them than let myself get caught up in any lingering negativity of my past. I guess I consider them other people’s life lessons that I can learn from if I take them close enough to heart.
