Life can be challenging at times and I have a few inspirational quotes, poems and stories that I turn to when times are a little difficult. I was reminded of this quote by Brené Brown the other day by Sue Curr, another inspirational lady and thought I would share it with you.

”I think midlife is when the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:

I’m not screwing around. It’s time. All of this pretending & performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate & getting hurt – has to go.

Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts 

I understand that you needed these protections when you were small

I understand that you believed your armor could help you secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy of love and belonging, but you’re still searching & you’re more lost than ever

Time is growing short

There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think

You were born worthy of love & belonging

Courage & daring are coursing through you. You were made to live & love with your whole heart

It’s time to show up and be seen.”

Sunsets are amazing and offer time for reflection.
