I love quotes, poems and words.  I find whatever mood I am in, I can read a quote and instantly be reminded of my life purpose, what I love, where I am going and how to stay the coarse whatever the weather.  When I wrote my book Fire Wife, it was super important to me that each chapter had a quote to kick it off.  Wise words be it poetry or brilliant sayings put life into context and help us to make sense of things.  Now as far as The Fire Wife Journal goes, it is the perfect size to pack in your purse.  If you are taking the bus or the train to work, you can listen to some tunes and take some time to write your goals and your dreams.  You can also work stuff out.  Recently I told you I would take you through my Fire Wife and Amour Propre Journals, bit by bit.  I hope you join me. XOXO

Here is my morning routine!  My favorite virtues card deck and my Fire Wife Journal.

Grounding Thoughts

When people speak ill of thee, live so that so that no one will believe them. – Plato

People either get it, or they don’t. Dr. Phil

Whatever is real will stay, whatever is not will go away.  Me!

What your mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.  Napoleon Hill

An optimist focuses on the most likely scenario and the pessimist on the least likely.  Anonymous

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it. Margaret Fuller

“Do unto others is a boomerang.”  Whatever you decide to throw out there will return to you.  If you do not like what comes back – change your output. Merlyn Gabriel Miller

Blessed be she who is both furious and magnificent. Taylor Rhodes

You can only become truly accomplished at something you love.  Don’t make money your goal.  Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people cant take their eyes off of you.  Maya Angelou

Captivating Words

My Mission is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style. Maya Angelou

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild precious life. Mary Oliver (Whole Poem is summer day, these are the last two lines).

Love after Love

Derek Walcott

The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self.  Give wine. Give bread, Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart.  Take down the love letters from the bookshelf the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror.  Sit. Feast on your life.
