Life's Truths | June 2015

I have a board on Pinterest dedicated to inspiring quotes. I like to be reminded from time to time especially when my emotional quotient is extremely low. 

My current favorite social media platform is Instagram. It is no fuss and drama-free. I find these wonderful quotes from people I follow and the random ones I see on my search or explore page. 

Here are the ones I am loving this month. 


An excellent reminder to focus on non-material things as these are which truly matter. We cannot bring these material things in the after life. We can instead invest in our spiritual life.    

In Solomon's case for instance, he was king, the richest, and wisest man during his time but he was miserable. 
"So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God. For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him? God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. This, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind." (Ecclesiastes 2:24-26 NLT)


The world we are living is crazy competitive. Everyone wants to be first, wants to have it all. It is draining and stressful. Please stop. We are not in a competition. Let us all find our own purpose in life. And believe me, mine is different from yours.    


Who doesn't love this wonderful quote from Dr. Seuss? It is my favorite. Well, I love everything Dr. Seuss. I think I enjoy reading Dr. Seuss books to my sons more than them listening to me. According to Dr. Seuss, be who you are. Stop trying to please people we don.t even like. What these people say do not matter anyway. Those who truly love us will continue loving us no matter what.  


Boom! Perfect timing to be reminded of this. I need to purge. I have accumulated too many things that I don't need. I am a neat freak and clutter makes me crazy.  


This last one is related to the second quote. We need more kindness and sincerity in this world. Let us choose to be kind and sincere from now on. 

Until my next favorite quotes! Do you have a great one to share?
