Quotes to Live By

2012 is coming to an end. And as you and I welcome another new year, sometimes (or often times), we fail to prioritize the intangibles that comprises our lives. Because of our busy schedules and numerous activities, we forget to appreciate the beauty of life.

My Mother always advises me to be content with what I have, to work hard for a better tomorrow and to give importance to family. She further reminds me to pray without ceasing. And in connection with these advises, I'd like to share with you some posters I have collated that bespeaks about values and relationships. I hope you find these helpful to jump-start your reflective mood this coming Christmas and New Year.




Which poster do you find remarkable and has caught your
 attention the most? Why is that so?


Blessed Christmas, my dear friends and may you all have a healthy, peaceful and joyous celebration with the people you love!

  9. These are all great quotes to live by. I was just thinking about the first one. If God is very much a part of our lives, He wouldn't have to step in because He's already residing in us....and our lives would always be full of miracles :-) He should not be the last resort, but rather the first One we go to.

    1. Unfortunately the atheists and agnostics do not have a relationship with God. Some may probably have but only remember Him in times of need. Thus when they allow God to be part of their everday lives, miracles do happen =)

  14. These quotes are really inspiring but one that captivated me was the one in the wheel chair. I think in a way, we all have our own disabilities and we don't see the better side of it. Thanks for sharing this post.

  19. I find the last quote so applicable to me especially now. I used to entertain negative thoughts always and it took me to nowhere. But i know much better now. I surrounded my self with people with full of positive vibes and never entertained those who are trying to pull me down. :-)

    merry christmas farida!

  28. i like the four agreements the most! :-) specially this line "what others say or do is a projection of their reality"... the same thing as what you say or do to them too.... so yeah, as much as ignore the bad things they say to you... be careful on what you say or do to them too... because maybe those are just your frustrations... :-)

    merry christmas farra!!! i missed your blog!!! :-)

  30. I like all of them but I like the granny quotes! hihi. :) Cute and true!

  31. I like this quote the most: "while we try teach our children all about life, they teach us what life is all about." This is so true. I never knew what's my life as a mother will be all about until my son came into my life. He thought me to be more patient and to smile even with all the problems around. I saw in him the genuine happiness. :)
