Thursday Thoughts: My Word Collection

–  I have a secret, I collect phrases.  Sayings that impart wisdom, quotes that help to keep a person going in the face of adversity, anything that helps me to maintain a somewhat optimistic perspective in a world where nothing feels too secure.  In fact, I looked today on my Pinterest Board and I have over 400 quotes on a board called Road to Health.  I created this board several years ago, it was my first.  I remember it like it was yesterday, a different way to try to achieve spiritual, physical and mental health.  I had no concept of how much this board would come to mean to me.

–   I had no idea that  I would come to need this board, almost crave it in my daily life.  I love following people on Pinterest who put up quotes that make you think, or challenge your current way of thinking.  I am a bit addicted to my Pinterest page because when I sign in I see so many amazing words of encouragement and they spark so much joy and hope.  I follow pages that are devoted to quotes, so when someone adds a new pin, I get to see it on my main page.  In some ways I think this is my form of meditation.  I will read something and feel the need to write for hours in a journal.

Cheers,
