Simple Truths of Life
I was reading through our newest title, The Simple Truths of Life. I was surprised to come upon chapters about worry, disappointment, regret and other similar topics. I thought, "That doesn't sound very inspirational at all!" When I read the chapter, though, I understood how important it is to look at negative events in a positive light. I don't know about you, but there are only so many times that I can think to myself, "the glass is half full"... sometimes I need someone to show me other ways of being optimistic. Here is a chapter full of quotes that I found particularly insightful titled, "A Simple Truth about... Disappointment."
"I've learned that it's easier to cope with closure or rejection when you recognize each asa simple detour guiding you in a new direction." -Linda Ellis "Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments." -Joseph Addison "The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way." -Robert Kiyosaki "Disappointment to a noble soul is what cold water is to burning metal; it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but never destroys it." -Eliza Tabor "If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment." -Henry David Thoreau "Disappointment is often the salt of life." -Theodore W. Parker "Was yesterday a disappointment? I am sorry. But this is another day. The earth has turned around since yesterday. Face the New Day with good cheer!" -Henry F. Henrichs
