Saturday Thoughts (Quote by Mary Anne Radmacher)



"speak quietly to yourself & promise there will be better days. whisper gently to yourself and provide assurance that you really are extending your best effort. console your bruised and tender spirit with reminders of many other successes. offer comfort in practical and tangible ways - as if you were encouraging your dearest friend. recognize that on certain days the greatest grace is that the day is over and you get to close your eyes. tomorrow comes more brightly..."

— Mary Anne Radmacher

Sorry, I do not remember where I got this photo from, I thought it went so well with the quote. I will post the credit when I find it.

Beautiful Thank you for these words. I'm saving them for those days... Happy Saturday to you.

This is such great advice :) I actually do this all the time which is why I typically have a pretty healthy self esteem.. Of course there are always those days that I must remind myself that those insulting voices in my head are not truth sayers, but liars and that I must remember my strengths. This really should be taught everywhere I think! Great post! :)

I love this quote. There have been days when I could have used it. I'm saving it for another day when I may need it : )

This is a beautiful quote. It really speaks to me right now. I wonder why we don't treat ourselves as well as we would treat our dearest friends. I need to work on that. Thank you for the reminder! :)

Have a lovely week!

Wonderful thoughts, indeed!
Hey, Six! Long time no "see" or "talk" to. I hope life has been treating you a little better than it was there for a while... You deserve nothing but the best, don't ever forget that.

Oh, I almost forgot why I came to "see" you. I have a blog award waiting for you back at the circus! Come check it out when you get the chance. Bye! :)
