From two of my favorite television shows I have heard some pretty inspiring quotes. These two in particular, have struck something in me that makes them worth repeating.
This first one is about you, and how you view yourself.
It is an excerpt from 'One Tree Hill';
"When you look in the mirror, who do you see looking back? Is it the person you want to be?
Is there someone else you were meant to be? The person you should have been but feel short of?
Is someone telling you you can't, or you won't? Because you can.
Believe that Love is out there. Believe that dreams come true everyday. Because they do.
Sometimes, happiness doesn't come from money, or fame, or power. Sometimes happiness comes from good friends and family. And the quiet nobility of leading a good life.
So take a look in that mirror and remind yourself to be happy. Because you deserve to be. Believe that.
And believe that dreams come true everyday. Because they do."
Now this next one, is in remembrance of my Papa and my Father. I would like to dedicate this excerpt to them both. Raymond Harold Pinz, and Thomas Paul Wilkinson, I love you and miss you both dearly, with all of my heart.
It is an excerpt from 'Grey's Anatomy';
"Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone...
It isn't just death we have to grieve, it is life. It is loss. It is change.
And when we wonder why it has to suck so much, sometimes has to hurt so bad, the thing we have to try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
That is how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you cannot breath. That is how you survive.
Grief comes in it's own time, for everyone. In it's own way.
So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
The best we can try to let ourselves do, is to feel it when it comes, and to let it go when we can.
The very worst part is that when you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
And always, every time, it takes your breath away."
For many reasons, both personal and philosophical, these two quotes stand out to me.
