“I choose to make the rest of my life the best of my life.” – Louise Hay
The women I have chosen to quote have all made major contributions to the world. I have been personally inspired by many of these women as I am sure you have, but Louise Hay is one of my favorites. Her spiritual teachings, especially those on healing always seem to find their way to me when I need them.
Today’s quote is one I try to live by. As I get older I do not see myself going downhill or getting old and sick. Instead I see myself as getting better and better. Even though she passed last year Louise is still my model of successful aging. Thank you Louise, you are missed!
“One day our descendants will think it incredible that we paid so much attention to things like the amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of our eyes or our gender instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings.”
—Franklin Thomas, activist, philanthropist, and former president of the Ford Foundation
I love history. We all know the stories of major characters in U.S. history and they are often white men. But do we know the stories of the women, people of color, indigenous peoples and immigrants who also contributed to the founding and growth of our nation?
During February in honor of African American History Month we will have quotes from Americans of African descent, some famous and some not so much, who have contributed in their own way to our heritage as Americans.
“When you focus on someone’s disability you’ll overlook their abilities, beauty and uniqueness. Once you learn to accept and love them for who they are, you subconsciously learn to love yourself unconditionally.” – Yvonne Pierre –
