Bit of Happy #143: Mind, Heart and Soul

14 Apr

“The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.”
-Emily Dickinson

An open mind, open heart, open soul. What better way to go through life than to encompass all three of these things. Open the door to opportunity, to possibility, to change, to love.. Open yourself to the ability to experience things ecstatically.

Today’s quote by Emily Dickinson made me realize the importance of opening myself to life and everything it has to offer. And if you don’t know me by now, these types of quotes tend to surface on Little Bits of Happy more than not – why? Because they are my favorite kind!

Sometimes I need that reminder to embrace new experiences, welcome change, and approach opportunity without fear. And my reminders lie within these very quotes. The quotes I share each and every day with all of you. Hopefully these quotes can be the same reminder as it is for me.

Go! Experience! Change! Love! …and always leave your mind, heart and soul ajar to everything life has to offer.


Bit of Happy #30: Impossible, Is Nothing

25 Oct

“Impossible, is nothing.”

A great quote for a Monday!  …full of optimism to help everyone get through the week. And hey, if you’re reading this right now, you’re already one day down! I loved this quote when I found it, and even though Adidas probably directed this towards their athletes, I found it perfectly relatable to life in general and to everyone.

I like to believe that nothing is impossible, or impossible, is nothing. I like to believe there are endless possibilities and opportunities in life. When one door closes, another always opens – even if it’s just slightly ajar. Even if you have to go searching for it first. It’s always there. Only a closed mind and heart will keep you from finding opportunities. Soooo, there’s only one thing to do…

…and I know you know EXACTLY what that is! So, just do it!

(Oh right, that’s Nike.)

Do you find this quote inspiring and relatable to life outside of sports as well?
