The A-Z Challenge ~ Why Midlife's Fabulous ~ Quotes About Midlife

The A-Z Challenge ~ Why Midlife's Fabulous ~ Quotes About Midlife


THE QUEEN OF QUOTES

Sometimes I look at my Pinterest Page and am a little amazed at the vast range of quotes I have collected over the years. There is something about a quote that succinctly sums up a thought or a feeling in a way we may not have been able to do on our own. I think I might just be the Queen of Quotes - a title I'm quite proud of really.


TEN MIDLIFE QUOTES


So for the letter Q in my Fabulous Midlife series, I thought I'd share a few quotes that relate to Midlife. They probably relate to life in general too - so feel free to add them to your Pinterest Quotes board (and if you don't have one then it's never too late to start!)

I've chosen 10 quotes and given them a floral theme to tie in with the blossoming of Midlife - because it is a time when you learn to bloom in your own chosen glory.

  1. Without a doubt, the last one. I like to think that our beauty is now inside rather than on the outside. :) #TeamLovinLife

  2. I like the one about how you are handling your age is more important than the age itself, very true for a lot of things in life! Crisis, challenges, setbacks - it's all about your attitude.
    As always, great post, Queen of Quotes! 😀

  5. Age is out of my control, but the key is how I handle it. Love this! Q is Quest for Quality as you Build a Better Blog. #AtoZchallenge.

  6. From this late bloomer, I am embracing midlife (old age) because yes, I'm finally enough. Love the flower theme and all the quotes. My Virtual Vineyard

  7. Love each of them. But the one about a woman becoming her own best friend rings so true for me!

  8. It was hard to choose - they are all great quotes but I think my favourite is the first one "The truth is, aging can be your realest opportunity to decide how best to live - and the best incentive for getting you to do just that." It's so funny how both our posts were quote related today! :-) #TeamLovinLife

  9. I love all of these. But especially the 'Aging is out of your control--' quote.
    It goes along with my personal favourite: Growing older is inevitable. Growing up is optional!

  10. I like them all. However, I really like the one about being a late bloomer. I feel like I've really come to myself in my forties. I hope it continues to get better and better.

  11. What a lovely collection of inspiring quotes. I especially like "The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself." Once we get to that stage the magic can really happen. And I so wish we as a collective could come to that understanding at a very early age, so we'd spend no time not being who we truly are. That's my dream.

    A favorite quote to share is by Ram Dass who said "We are all just walking each other home." That's so filled with compassion and understanding and love, and truly expresses how we're all part of one wholeness.

  13. Beautiful quotes! Thanks for sharing those. I, too, collect quotes. I keep them in my Evernote App. Here's one about aging I really like: "Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul." ~Samuel Ullman

  14. Do I have to choose? How about the quote about being your best friend? So true! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  15. If I had to choose, I'd say that handling age is my fave. One quote I really love is the one that says something like 'growing old is compulsory...growing up is not.' #TeamLovinLife

  16. Excellent! I love the one about 'aging is out of your control' it is so true Leanne. I just don't think of myself as a number but rather enjoy life. Some great quotes here which I will pin.

  19. It's hard to pick a favorite. There are several that really speak to me. The second one was especially meaningful to me. They are all really beautifully paired with their photos.

  20. Hard to pick one but I think waking up one morning and thinking I'm enough might be one I'll pick today.

  22. 2nd from last is me! And to me, it's basically saying to follow your heart, your gut, your instinct and just flippin well be yourself! A great collection of quotes! #LovinLifeLinky

  23. I love quotes too Leanne. I find them very inspiring. My favourite of the above would have to be the one about not knowing what you want to be, but knowing the woman you want to become... lovely #TeamLovinLife

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love all of the Diane von Furtstenberg ones, but I think I like the "I'm enough" quote from Anna Quindlen the best.

    Thanks for sharing on #FridayFrivolity

  25. I'm a bit of a quote collector too :-) . I think my fave is the one that says ageing is out of our control, but the way we handle it, is :-)
