Words of Wisdom Found on Pinterest :)

I have found many great quotes and sayings on Pinterest that I have *pinned* there. Some I plan on using as inspiration for scrapbook pages. Others I just want as a daily reminder for my life.
Like this one. I've seen it before, but lately it really resonates with me. I'd like to think that I try to do all these things and more. But I know that I am not a perfect person! I fully embrace that. And am lucky to have good friends and people in my life who accept me for who I am :)
But that doesn't mean that I can't continue to try and be the best person I can be.
Especially as a role model to my children.
It's a lot to think about some days.
And then I came across this one pinned by Lisa Truesdell...

It's such a simple thought that has so much power! I have witnessed a lot of kindness recently that gives hope. But I have also been disheartened at a lot of things that I see on a daily basis. Whether it's in the news, the city, society in general, or people who choose to hurt rather than help. And I think to myself, if everyone could just keep this simple thought at the back of their head, life would, could be a much better place for so many.
So this is going to be my challenge to myself on a daily basis. "Above all else, be kind".
And hopefully I can help make the world a better place :)


  1. I think I have that first one pinned too! I love it, they are both such a great reminder of how to live. :)

  2. It's a great mantra! I am quite addicted to Pinterest myself!

  3. THose are great pins. I've started pinning quotes at pinterest too and have found some real gems. I agree about being a good role model for the kids, I mean, I know everyone wants to do that, but I've been thinking about that a ton lately - even just about how you act when you are grumpy or if they see me be short with the hubs.

  4. Wow, brilliant heartfelt thoughts today Mary Jo. I have been moved to think deeply. Thank you so much for sharing these with us.

  5. I use Pinterest, but I don't think I'm so good at using it ;)

    Thank you for the nice comment you left on my blog :)

  6. Oh Mary Jo, I LOVE both of these! Especially the second one! I'm always telling my girls to be kind. I've seen so many great quotes on there too!

    Have a great weekend, celebrating your daughter's birthday!

  7. Love these quotes too!
    I agree it would make the world a better place if people would remember to be kind. We would have so much more peace!!
    Have a wonderful weekend!
