HAWMC: Quotation Inspiration

April 2, 2012

HAWMC Day 2:

Because I believe I am a truly sensitive being, more so than many other people, I soak up my environment. I feed off of the feelings, spoken or unspoken, of others. I can feel my mood changing, growing tense or relaxing based on the mood of the room. It’s a strange feeling, sometimes negative, but also positive, a gift.

What if I could use that sensitivity to influence others? What if I could mold a bad mood into a great one? What if I could take your cloudy day and shine a little light?

If I can absorb and start to take on the feelings of others, maybe I have the gift (or power) to steer their mood, as well. Although just a thought and idea I’ve been playing with. I mean, I do know some people that can do this very thing. They can use their own sensitivity and energies to navigate the mood or feelings of a room. It’s incredible to watch, actually.

What does this have to do with Quotation Inspiration, though?

Everything.

Think about it, have you ever read a quote and actually gotten joy from it? Did the words make you smile to yourself? Did it make everything just seem better? Did it make your day just a bit brighter?

Quotes can be powerful things. Quotes can make the hair on your arms stand up or help a smile break on your face, or maybe even evoke a tear.

I use quotes daily now, just as I use affirmations to pick up my mood and end my day. Just one simple positive quote or affirmation can change everything. Just as your mood can affect mine.

Today’s HAWMC prompt of finding an inspirational quote (positive or negative) got me thinking about how I really do use quotes to get inspired and stay inspired. And I’d love to share some of my favorites with you… maybe they’ll touch you like they have me. Or maybe they’ll change the mood of your room.

Every day is a new and exciting adventure.

Affirmation: I love myself. – Louise Hay

I’d rather be adored and loved now, then missed and talked up when I am gone.

“Love who and what you are and what you do.” – Louise Hay

“You are the power in your world! You get to have whatever you choose to think!” – Louise Hay

A quote can say it all. But so can a recipe.

Recipes can be truly inspirational…

An inspirational recipe for tomorrow.

Your turn: Find a quote that inspires you (either positively or negatively) and free write about it for 15 minutes. Based on the HAWMC prompt for today, this is what I did to write this post…

I wrote about a Rumi quote I’ve traveled with for a long time.

Love what you say here–and it seems like it would segue nicely into tomorrow’s superpower prompt!
