5 great quotes about the my word for 2018 -  RISE

FIVE GREAT QUOTES ON RISING

Seeing my word for 2018 is RISE and seeing I am a huge lover of quotes, I thought I'd combine the two and put together five quotes that reflect how the word RISE applies to the year ahead for me. I hope you enjoy them and feel free to Pin any that appeal to you.



1.

Then I'll rise and fight again - John Dryden


 2.
There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise. - WEB Dubois


 3.
You have seen my descent. Now watch my rising. - Rumi


 4.
The more you let go, the higher you rise. - Deen over Dunya


 5.
You will become a graveyard of the woman you once were before you rise - Pavana

  8. Love love love these inspirational quotes. Time to let go of emotional baggage, mental baggage, and perhaps physical baggage that weigh us down so that we can rise higher in 2018!

    1. That's my intention for 2018 Darlene - I ended up too weighed down by the end of 2017 - time to rise up out of it!

  9. Great word, great quotes. I kid you not, #3, the Rumi quote, a grocery checker at my neighborhood store has that in cursive across her chest. Of course she always wears low cut tops so we can all read it. At first I was staring so much I just asked her what it said and who said it, the cursive is not easy to read on her chest. Now when I get her I ask her for more Rumi quotes which of course she can give and has some more on her arms and on her neck and back!

    1. I bet there's millions of Rumi quotes floating around the world on people's skin Haralee - it's nice that they inspire people to better themselves (although having strangers stare at your chest all the time would be a little bit weird!)

    1. I think we all need to believe that we can get back up again and be better than what has happened to us Beth - if we didn't then we'd just sit down and give up - and that's not an alternative for me!
