Quotes To Live By

Thoughts are an important aspect of humanity, as it allows us time to process ideas and to reflect on decisions. Inspirational or motivational quotes capture and appeal to your subconscious mind, which indeed is the major portion of your entire mind.

Creativity is found subtly embedded in the subconscious mind. Inspirational quotes may instantaneously change your entire thought process, directing your energies towards a positive path. It is clear that when the subconscious is constantly filled with a flow of positive commands, there is an uplift in your general outlook and personality. Psychologists recognize that positivity is vital to recovering from illness.

The majority of inspirational sayings hardly even take up 10 to 20 seconds of your time to digest. Yet, the messages they contain are quite heavy, sufficient to propel you for months if not years. I am sure you can recall at least one motivational quote you read several years ago. This is the power of inspiration which is why we launched “Quotes to Live By” from members within the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition. We will be launching a new quote and it’s meaning every Thursday!

Quote #1: featuring Melissa Ladd Patnode

Hi, I’m Melissa Ladd Patnode, 211 Program Supervisor from Central Michigan 211 and LifeWays and member of the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition. A quote that is meaningful to me is “A man on the beach where thousands of starfish lay dying in the sun saw a girl tossing them into the sea, one by one. “Why bother?” he asked. “You won’t make much a difference.” Tossing yet another starfish into the sea, the girl said, “I made a difference to that one.” -Loren Eisley “. The reason I find this quote so meaningful is it reminds me to slow down and not just look at the systematic impact but the individual impact of our work. This quote supports my wellbeing because/through/by remind me to slow down. So, think about how you can make a difference in at least one person’s life. This has been brought to you by the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition’s Quotes to Live By Series. Thank you for watching/reading/listening.
