Okay, first of all, can you all take a moment to admire my stunning Spanish skills? I officially know the Spanish word for one. Impressive, right? Yeah, not really. But I am taking Spanish 1 currently so I felt the need to include at least a little Spanish in my posts…
But the point of this post is not my impressive Spanish skills (or lack there of).
I was nominated by Mariana over at Book Is Glee to participate in the 3 days, 3 quotes challenge. Now, if you have read my blog for any length of time, you know I love quotes. Some might even call me obsessed. Obviously, I was thrilled to be nominated for this challenge (I didn’t even know such a thing existed and the realization pretty much made my day…just saying;)
So a huge thanks to Mariana! Her quote for day 1 can be found here. And if you want even more quotes, check out her 3 days 3 quotes challenge from a few months ago.
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote (for 3 consecutive days).
- Tag 3 other bloggers to join in with this amazing challenge.
I have never met a heavy heart that wasn’t a phone booth with a red cape inside
Some people will never understand the kind of superpower it takes for some people to just walk outside
Some days I know my smile looks like the gutter of a falling house
But my hands are always holding tight to the rip chord of believing
A life can be rich like the soil
Can make food of decay
Can turn wound into highway
Pick me up in a truck with that bumper sticker that says
“it is no measure of good health to be well adjusted to a sick society”
This quote is actually a stanza from the poem “The Nutritionist” by Andrea Gibson. I first heard it when I was in treatment and it gave me goosebumps then and still does. I could sit here and ramble on about it for hours but I think to be able to truly appreciate it, you have to hear Andea Gibson reciting it.
Read the full poem here.
And my nominees are…
Claire @ alwayshc3pe
Kelly @ Graceful Aesthetic
Krista @ From Food Stamps to a Future
…and YOU! Although I can’t SPECIFICALLY nominate anybody else for the challenge, feel free to join in on the fun and make sure to leave a link to your first quote.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another quote, but for now, Happy Valentines Day! Be kind to others and of course, be kind to yourself♥
