This blog introduces you to my special brand of BIKE. I show you how to find your Best self, access your Inner strength, tune in to your Killer instincts, and use your Expressive voice. It's inspiring, spiritual, quirky, and it's all in your head. It's about ATTITUDE, not exercise, though that might be a side benefit.

Something to consider throughout the day

I've used this quote before in a lengthier post, but I like it and think it's worth repeating:

The soul is stained by the color of your thoughts. ~Marcus Aurelius

Thanks again to Vera Marie Badertscher over at A Traveler's Library for sharing it with me.

Ooh, that's a good one, Jackie.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I read MEDITATIONS by Marcus Aurelius through twice yearly. Your blog is uplifting and thought-provoking. Thanks, Roland

Margarita Tartakovsky said...

Wow, Jackie, this quote is fantastic. Talk about inspiring and thought-provoking. I actually just wrote it down on a sticky note. :)

Thank you all. I love this quote and am grateful to Vera for sending it to me. It really comes in handy sometimes. For me, that's today.

Margarita, that's funny. I wrote it on a sticky note as well--a long time ago. The sticky part's wearing off.

I just visited your blog. How did you get so many awards?! Very inspiring. I'll go back to read more now. And Vera did mention Meditations, but I've never read it. Sounds like I should.

so true about thoughts and how they affect us...we don't realize the power of our thought life!

I like the little quote by our friendly Winnie the Pooh,

"When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it"

SO True!

reminds me why I am not doing downer anything these days!

BIKE LADY said...

Barb, what color are your thoughts? :-)

Margarita Tartakovsky said...

Jackie, that is funny! I feel like my whole life is written on sticky notes - or envelopes from bills and credit card offers. :)

BTW, I was inspired by the quote and just published a post on it, if you'd like to check it out:

No pressure, though. :)

I've never heard this quote before Jackie.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
