Midwest Charm with Anna

Too Many Pictures, Saving My Words

She said, “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn –

“What brings us to tears, will lead us to grace. Our pain is never wasted.” – Bob Goff –

“Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith” – Elisabeth Elliot –

“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.” – Shauna Niequist –

“You have to let hope always carry you – or fears will carry you away” – Ann Voskamp –

“God has you exactly where he wants you. Learn to be happy where you are and God will take you where you want to be.”  – Unknown –

“When joy is a habit, love is a reflex” – Bob Goff –

“Present is living with your feet firmly grounded in reality, pale and uncertain as it may seem. Present is choosing to believe that your own life is worth investing deeply in, instead of waiting for some rare miracle or fairytale. Present means we understand that the here and now is sacred, sacramental, threaded through with divinity even in its plainness. Especially in its plainness.” – Shauna Niequist –

“Joy is a decision, a really brave one, about how you are going to respond to life.” – Wess Stafford –

“Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink” – Lilly Pulitzer –

“It’s not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What’s hard, she said, is figuring out what you’re willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.” – Shauna Niequist –

“All you need is love and a dog” – Unknown –

“Bliss is a silent conversation between me and my dog” – Unknown – 

“For what it’s worth… it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald –

You may have noticed that my posts have gotten shorter. For the most part, they have less writing and more pictures. I’ve been saving my words. Saving them in the best way! I promise they’ll surface someday in the near future and when that day comes, this will make sense! But for now, my most sacred thoughts, words, views and perspectives are written and being written, tucked away for something special. With outlines and edits and words re-written 1,000 times over again, I’ve still got a ways to go. And when the time is right, I can’t wait to share it all! In the meantime, I thought I would share a few of my favorite quotes. Motivational, fun and full of love! Happy Monday, all!

Xoxo, Anna
