With school starting just around the corner and summer coming to a close. I thought I would center the August Thoughts to Inspire around knowledge and a different way of looking at life in general to inspire especially those transitioning from one school to another or school to workforce, and giving them a more positive outlook.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though
nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is—Albert Einstein
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events;
small minds discuss people.—Eleanor Roosevelt
Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is
progress; working together is success.—Henry Ford
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll
start having positive results—Willie Nelson.
I hope the August thoughts to inspire will motivate you to be the very best person you can be. I always tell my kids to live by the golden rule and to treat others how you would like to be treated in return not necessarily how people DO treat you, because approaching life with a positive attitude and mindset will help you reap benefits far beyond the effort that you have put forward. Negativity will only breed more negativity, and will take far more energy. So for more inspiration, check back each month, or access previous months inspirational quotes in the archives, and also check out some of these posts:
I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
