We are so lucky, those of us here within the WordPress Community, we skip around our various friends posts, viewing and visiting far away places, as we share ideas, dreams, insights and visions.
Our lives may vary in culture, distance and ways of living, yet I am sure we count ourselves lucky to be free to choose among the variety of life gifts we are privileged in sharing in our everyday lives..
I am also taking on a small challenge as I was listed in Ka’s post HERE in a 3 quote challenge While I have stopped receiving awards, I am always up for a ‘challenge’ and my 3 quotes reflect people who overcame tremendous challenges in their lives and turned their lives around to make theirs and others better along their journey to Freedom..
I have long admired the man of this quote, and have read much about his life and his journey upon this Earth Life While I was enjoying the Swinging 60’s this man was suffering his long prison sentence for daring to ‘challenge’ the establishment on its treatment of black people. And this is a Quote many of us throughout our lives can relate to.
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”
My next quote is from Nick Vujicic
Nicks challenges have been huge, born without arms and legs it didn’t let it stop him from showing others there are No Limits to our capabilities.. What a recent Video here of Nick shows he Never gave up and now has a wonderful wife and child and he has inspired many to overcome their own personal challenges.
So many of us allow Fear to stop us from striding forward into the unknown, we came here to experience LIFE!.. I hope we Live more in our Now moments and enjoy all Life has to offer.
Which is what I am doing this Summer as I embrace each brand new day.
My Last quote is what I have had upon the bottom of me email for a few years and it says..
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi was another remarkable man, who brought Change to his world,
a few more facts about his life can be found HERE
The Challenge of creating a New World which holds more Peace and Love than Fear and Hate falls upon All of Us..
If we hold Anger, Hate, and judgements and let the few who hold terror and fear over us, then we allow them to win.
We need to alter our own ways of BEing to bring about Peace and stop our own Pettiness and squabbles. And show LOVE overcomes HATE and that PEACE begins in each of our Hearts..
In Love and Light
As we rise to the Challenge for PEACE
