At the weekend, Luke and I were in London, it was only for 1 night but it felt like an age for me. I missed my children so much, everything about them. When we got home yesterday I didn’t stop … Continue reading
I love a good quote.
My home has them on its walls. My classroom has them on its doors. My phone has them stored away for inspiration. So I thought I would share my favourites, in a new weekly project, Mindful Monday.
Monday, the start of the working week, the one day I perhaps need the most inspiration to get me through the next 5 days until the weekend!
I hope you enjoy them. I hope they inspire you or perhaps let you take a moment to pause in this whirlwind of a journey. So let’s kick the project off with this one.
How unbelievably true …
This is my quickest post to write, yet one which has taken me some time to put together.
I was scrolling through the Camera Roll on my phone and laughed to myself, as mixed in among the photos of my children, days out, views that I had captured and the odd selfie of my 3 year old… were some of my favourite quotes that I had unknowingly been collecting.
I enjoy words. Words can inspire; make us smile; make us cry; make us appreciate and make us think.
So I wanted to share with you some of my favourites:
My friend sent me this one when I was pregnant with my son. Ironically, I received it the same day that we went for our 4d scan. I loved the sentiment and have kept it ever since.
For both my children:
I take huge pride from other people commenting on my 3 year old’s manners and his ability to be independent. He recently won the ‘Rainbow Ranger’ Award at pre-school for consistently sharing, tidying up and being polite. I was immensely proud of him. This quote is one which I will always have in the back of my mind as my children grow up.
I’m a relatively new mum, but I have learnt more about love and life in the last 3 and a half years, than I ever have done before.
For my husband:
For my mum:
For my friends:
My amazing friend, Sarah sent me this a while ago. I love it:
For the dreamer and believer in me:
For the teacher in me:
We have this on a canvas in our hallway, I read it every morning as I walk down the stairs:
For when life gets tough:
For the humble:
…and finally, this represents my family’s ordinary life. Our extra-ordinary life, which I wouldn’t change for the world.
Do you have any quotes which are sentimental to you that you would like to share?
