Whenever I read an inspiring quote or poem or thoughts to ponder, I write it down. Below is such an inspiring piece and I can no longer remember where I saw or read it but I wrote it down 8 years ago.To live content with small means; To seek elegance rather than luxury; And refinement rather than fashion; To be worthy, not respectable; And wealthy, not rich; To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages with open heart; To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony. – William Henry Channing
I felt inspired to write my symphony too. See below..To be thankful everyday instead of complaining; To be joyful and not sad; To be understanding instead of arguing; To be kind than rude; To count my blessings than count the things that I don’t have; To nurture my child with love and good values; To be supportive and an encouraging wife; To keep myself busy so that there’s no time for boredom; To think positive and avoid negative thoughts; To bear in mind that I can do all things thru God who strengthens me; And to enjoy life no matter what.
What about you? What’s your symphony? I think that each of us has his/her own symphony to live by but basically we all want the same – to lead a good life . Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful day everyone!
