In one of the first few challenges that I have been nominated for, Chape Personal Trainer has given me my favourite, I think. It is a Three Day Quote Challenge.
- Challenge rules:
- Post three consecutive days.
- You can pick one or three quotes per day.
- Challenge three different bloggers per day.
For someone who knows me, knows that I absolutely love reading and sharing quotes. My obsession with beautiful words is so far advanced that I maintain a Quote Diary in which I quickly scribble quotations and short inspirational verses.
chapeblog is a great personal training blog that motivates people to get fit and healthy; something I personally should be focussing on too! I have found great stuff on personalised exercising, healthy eating, interesting recipes and even motivational words on their blog. Visit and show them some love. They are inspiring us all at this address!
For my first day at the Quote Challenge, I chose one of my most favorite quote author, Steve Maraboli. He is a Behavioral Scientist, a popular keynote speaker, author, and social observer.
Day 1 Quote:
We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path.
Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by the wind… there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey.
I find parallels in nature to be a beautiful reflection of grand orchestration. One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed in the same direction. We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered… we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment, we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey. I’m not perfect for your journey and you’re not perfect for my journey, but I’m perfect for my journey and you’re perfect for your journey. We’re heading to the same place, we’re taking different routes, but we’re both exactly perfect the way we are.
Think of what understanding this great orchestration could mean for relationships. Imagine interacting with others knowing that they too each share this parallel with the snowflake. Like you, they are headed to the same place and no matter what they may appear like to you, they have taken the perfect form for their journey. How strong our relationships would be if we could see and respect that we are all perfectly imperfect for our journey.”
