I read inspirational quotes every day.
It’s a habit, but it’s also the way I keep my creative juices flowing.
I’m writing a new book, Soul Reminders, Daily Nourishment For Your Soul.
(I have to write 365 of them!)
(soulreminders.com is the website that gave me the idea. And the tin framed chalkboard I write on everyday in my garden is what started all of it)
I came across this Rumi quote this morning and had to share it with you:
“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”
Indeed! Withdrawal pulled out my rotten roots. I wasn’t always sure I had any hidden roots beneath them to grow, but I did. You do too.
I hope you can trust the healing process and know that in time, you will be a brand new person, all shiny and bright, polished to a dazzling patina. YOU WILL BE AMAZING.
( You already are amazing, actually, but the volume will be turned up to WOW.)
I hope Rumi’s words fill you with hope.
