Inspiration from Sky Blue Sea

Today I subscribed to a new blog and on it I found an inspirational post that filled me with emotion.  I hope that you like it too and if you do why not visit SkyBlueSea for yourself and tell her about it.

My friend Mary is an amazing bubbling force of energy. Occasionally she will e-mail me stuff like this.
Today waiting in my inbox was this, and it just made me smile. Sorry I don’t know where it originated, but I hope it inspires.

“Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday.
Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.
And, there on television, she said it was “exciting.”
Regarding body changes, she said there were many,occurring every day…like her breasts.
They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words! Maya Angelou said this:
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.”
“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.”
“I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.”
“I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as “making a life.”
“I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.”
“I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back.”
“I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.”
“I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.”
“I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a
friendly pat on the back.”
“I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.”
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never
forget how you made them feel.”

Makes me want to be a better person, how about you?

    I normally shy away from anything that contains the word “inspirational” – but that really is! Thanks 🙂
