there may be days

when you’re feeling down

and the light is dim

Breathe in life and light…exhale confidence and positivity to the world. ~David Rutherford

reach deep inside

so you can find

a little inspiration

to move your mind

The first person you have to inspire everyday is yourself. ~Coach Mumford

if you stumble

get back up

smile, stand tall

face the bad

and don’t be sad

Make your mess your message. ~Robin Roberts

be brave

be bold

the future has much to hold

Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up. ~Brene Brown

push fear to the side

worry no more

free your mind, body, and soul

When fear comes knocking, let faith answer the door. ~Robin Roberts


and don’t give up

share with others

be fearless, brave and strong

Success is not final and failure is not fatal.  It is the courage to continue that counts. ~Winston Churchill

rest, relax, and believe

you’ve achieved

and you’re enough

At the end of the day it’s not what you achieved, it’s what you overcame. ~Robin Roberts

last but not least,

always remember…

All will be well. ~Jo Knowles (See You at Harry’s)

  1. This is absolutely wonderful and a great way to start the day. I am inspired by my children and by the teachers with whom I work. Have a wonderful day – thank you!

  2. The format of your poem inspired me. I am a quote collector. So to group similar themed quotes and reflect on what they mean to me, is an idea I had never considered before. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. I think your format will be sending a bunch of us scrambling for our quote books. I am inspired by my slicer friends and by my fellow travelers at Spiritual Journey Thursday, my latest blogging adventure.

  4. I love this! I especially connect with the line “you’re enough.” I need to remember that. I also noticed your running log & races – I am training for my second half marathon right now (in May), and I am inspired by your log! I have a “running” section on my blog too, and I might use it like you do, and reflect on my running. Thank you for the inspiration ( 😉 ), and thanks for slicing! #sol15
