Recovery Reminder #3: Quotes to live by

Kerri Fivecoat-Campbell posted this today on her Facebook page, and I loved it:
"Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's when you've had everything to do, and you've done it." - Margaret Thatcher

Why do I love that? Let me count the ways.

1) I love it because it REMINDS me that hard work is satisfying.

2) I love it because it REMINDS me that Margaret Thatcher was a powerful woman--and still has impact.

3) I love it because it REMINDS me that I can learn from other people.

4) I love it because it REMINDS me that less is more.

5) I love it because it REMINDS me that I've felt this very same way.

6) I love it because it REMINDS me that I can have many days like this, if I so choose.

7) I love it because it REMINDS me that all things are possible.

8) I love it because it REMINDS me that obstacles only get in the way when you let them.

9) I love it because it REMINDS me that I've overcome so much, and you can do that, too!

10) I love it because it REMINDS me that life is what we make it.

Make yours the best that it can be today. And if you have a quote that you live by, please share it here as a comment.
