2 Inspirational Poems to Help In Re-Energizing Your Body, Mind and Soul

 

Why Inspiration is More Effective than Motivation; What Great Leaders ...of my favourite Inspirational Quotes . I love collecting Inspirational ...

Hi again Moms,

While doing the supper dishes tonight, my brain went into its usual free fall. I began thinking of my last post about things I do to re-energize and re-generate me. The 5 points were all valid, but I had forgotten to add that I absolutely LOVE inspirational sayings and poems. My house is literally abloom with them! Two of my favorites are the following. The first is a poem that Oprah loves and recommends all of us women especially put up on our bathroom walls to read first thing in the am. It truly has and continues to inspire me. The second one is a poem that Michael received in his catechism classes. It is up in my kitchen over my sink. Every time I am doing dishes I can read the beautiful words that remind me what I want myself and my family to stand for. Enjoy ladies, and remember, when love and joy are in everything you do, happiness and balance follow.

“Love After Love”

 

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved youall your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
Derek Walcott

 

“In This Home”

 

We BELIEVE in living deeply,
Laughing often and loving
Always
We BELIEVE we were
Brought together
To support and care for each other
We BELIEVE in celebrating
Together
Our faith, our heritage,
Our traditions
We BELIEVE that everyone’s
Feelings count,
And that the uniqueness of
Each of us
Strengthens all of us
We BELIEVE
In the power of forgiveness to
Heal
And the power of love
To carry us through.
We BELIEVE in one another,
In this family
In this HOME
