Life is a contact sport. You always get bloody, no matter what you do. I know that is kind of a pessimistic view of life, however, it is also a very realistic view. Think about it for a sec. Have you been bruised in the past? Have you had things go another way than you were hoping? Sure you have… you wouldn’t be human if you didn’t have some, if not a lot of painful experiences or memories. But you know what? Here is my first Inspirational Quote:
“What doesn’t kill you…makes you stronger!” – Friedrich Nietzsche
Have you ever heard of that one? Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. But for me, it is true. I am not going to go into my own personal pity party about all the cruel and unfair experiences that my life has thrown my way. But I will say this, in looking back …I wouldn’t give them up for anything. Because they have made me and shaped me into who I am today. They have opened my heart in many different ways, ways that even 10-15 years ago I wouldn’t have imagined. My life is richer, deeper, happier and so much more fulfilling than it was before. So if you are going thru difficult times, or if you getting your ass handed to you on a platter, hang in there. Don’t give up. Because here is another Inspirational quote I love:
“How can you be beaten if you keep getting back up? – Muhammad Ali
This website is going to be a little different than most of the other sites you have probably visited. It is certainly lovely to read sweet quotes about how “You can do it” or “There is no such thing as can’t”… but they never helped me. Not one bit!!! So I am going to share with you some passages that for me made a difference in how I viewed life… certainly what life was dealing me. These quotes may be somewhat difficult to understand… thats okay. Some of them I had to read several times to understand as well. But these quotes are from 2000 years ago in ancient Rome. So for me, just knowing that these quotes were made by men who lived over 2,000 years ago gave me a certain feeling of relief. If these people went thru the same shit as I was going thru, then it wasn’t just my problem. They are the same problems and challenges that have been around for a long, long time. And I felt that if these have been here for that long, then there might be a different solution to them that what was available to me at the time.
So, if you like these, then please use them in your daily life. They may help bring a different slant on whatever shit you are dealing with now. If they aren’t for you… no worries. Thank you for stopping by and giving us a chance.
I wish you all the best, and certainly a happy life.
