POWER of words + gratitude

I have kept books full of my favorite quotes since I was a teenager.  Any words I liked, were meaningful to me, taught me something or changed my state of mind…I wrote down and keep in books. 

Now Cheryl Strayed has perfectly explained the reason why I’ve kept these words close to me for so long in her new book, Brave Enough.

“…I believe in the power of words to help us reset our intentions, clarify our thoughts, and create a counternarrative to the voice of doubt many of us have murmuring in our heads-the one that says, You can’t, you won’t, you shouldn’t have.  Quotes, at their core, almost always shout Yes!”

I shared her awesome words above and these quotes about gratitude in my yoga classes this week.  Thank you Cheryl Strayed!
