Wise Words

My Challenge Today

“I will strive to be mindful and aware when I hear something profound. I will set aside time to meditate when I read deep words of wisdom. I will take time for meaningful words to sink into mind and heart. Perhaps it can shape life for the better.”

~ Just me – Chris

“My Mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.”
~ Maya Angelou

Wise Words

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.”  

Maya Angelou

I’ve not seen this particular quote before. When I read it today, it “hit home” and sunk in deeply, The above sentence is profoundly true of who I am and how I think today.

Maya Angelou has many wise sayings, poems, writings and I admire her talent to take a deep thought and put it perfectly into words.

It is truly my mission in life… I could not say it better. I do not just want to survive, I want to live and thrive with passion, compassion, humor and I won’t mind some style. What a beautiful mission in life. We could all learn from Maya Angelou.
