Soul Sunday


This weeks Soul Sunday is dedicated to Maya Angelou. Author, performer, poet, activist and inspirational soul.  Her wisdom will continue to be a guiding light in our world. 

When you learn, teach. When you get, give.

 What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it. Don't complain.

The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.

 When someone shows you who they are believe them; the first time.

“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 something 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.

 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 can’t take their eyes off of you.  Nothing will work unless you do.

 You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.
 We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.

Love life, engage in it, give it all you've got. love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it.
