Creating a Charmed Life

I highlighted some of the good points from the book I'm reading now-- Creating a Charmed Life by Victoria Moran. These are good mantra if I'm feeling down or it's my motivation if I want to weave my inner words in a creative way. :) Here they are:

·         I wanted to walk on the sand and leave no trace, yet I wanted to build a sandcastle and make my mark.

·         Everybody needs some time to shine. . . Nobody’s in the spotlight nonstop. Accept that you will shine, step back, and then shine again. The moon has phases from dark to full. So do we.

·         A charmed life is an exuberant life. You get one by loosening up, lightening up, and inviting in stimulating events and people.

·         When you are discreet, you protect yourself. You preserve your honor. You conserve your power. You become, in the words of actress Jacquee Gafford, “less a satellite and more a sun.”

·         Enjoy your eccentricities. These often include some of your brightest traits. They make us gifted and unique. They make us women to be reckoned with. Concentrate on the person you want to be when you were 6 years old, the kind of woman you want to become. Within that vision is the core of your uniqueness. Find it, and find a place for it in the world you inhabit now.

·         Whether you unearth the whimsical wonders inside you through this exercise or have been aware of your eccentricities all along respect them today a little more than usual. Be grateful for them. Enjoy your eccentricities and those of other people. Neutrals have a place, but not as dominant colors of your life.

·         An unhurried woman is willing to include some emptiness in her day. That way, when you ask if she’s got time for you, she almost always does.

·         Decide that you’re beautiful already.

·         Dance with your shadow. Dancing is a delightful way to get to know someone.

·         Love lavishly. Love your family, your friends, your work, your life. You know about being in love. This is living in love.

·         Redefine “Lady.”

Kudos to the author! =)
