Pretty, True, and Hopeful

I wanted to do a holiday post.  Something about light and hope in the middle of winter (ever notice how many religions set light festivals at this time of the year?)  Maybe something about gifts.  But then, I found this quote in my archives and realized that it fits the season very well.

I wish this for all of you, if you haven't found that something yet-- and for myself, as well:

"I hope you come to find that which gives life a deep meaning for you. Something worth living for-- maybe even worth dying for-- Something that energizes you, enthuses you, enables you to keep moving ahead.
I can't tell you what it might be-- that's for you to find, to choose, to love. I can just encourage you to start looking, and support you in the search."
--written by Sister Ita Ford to her niece shortly before she was martyred in El Salvador, Dec 2, 1980.

And, on a lighter note, the one quote that decorates all of my planners, notebooks, and even my cubicle wall.  Remember:

"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different."
-Coco Chanel

To those who celebrate it, Merry Christmas.  And to everyone, I wish happy, energizing, creative, enthusing Holidays!


  1. Beautiful and inspiring quotes :-) Merry Christmas to you as well!

  2. Excellent quotes. I hope you find that "something" too. :) Merry Christmas, and wishes for a bright new year!
