Quote of the Month – Free Printable – January 2013

Each weekday on facebook I share with you a quote of the day, I have loved finding these quotes just as much as sharing them with you, some make me cry, laugh and really think.  This year each month on the blog  I will share with you a quote of the month, a quote that will motivate and inspire you in your everyday life.  I will design these quotes into an image which you can then print and frame.

This month’s quote is one very close to my heart.

‘When you learn how to accept instead of expect, you will have fewer disappointments’ author unknown.

Each year a lot of bloggers create one word, a word to live by each year.  I have never participated in this until this year.  My word… expect.  Like the quote ‘Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for  them’ (author unknown), says it all for me.  I have expected a lot from certain people around me, they didn’t meet my expectations and for that I became hurt and our relationships suffered.  This year I want to learn to accept that that’s all they can give and just love them for that.

I printed a whole heap of inspirational quotes about love, life, family and friendship in different sizes and framed them for my daughters for their christmas present. They are on display above their bed heads to read and inspire them each day.

Love this, I was so demotivated at the start of the year however I surrounded myself with websites and happiness books and words. I felt ready to get started once work began again and started cleaning out and organising rooms and areas that just made me feel horrible. My inspiration to get cleaning and started was the organised chaos blog
you linked with the school station. What a fantastic idea and we now
have our own little station and the kids cant wait to decorate their

I decided that my word for this year was “sparkle”. Everyone needs a little sparkle! Thank you x x

We have the same school bag station, it keeps everything so organised. I love your word ‘sparkle’ and that you will, I can tell you are determined.

Love this! This is similar to something I referred to often a couple of years ago, but much better worded. I found it super helpful coming to terms with what it means to have a loved one with Aspergers Syndrome.

Blessed are those who expect nothing for they shall not be disappointed.

You are so right about expectations resulting in disappointments. I feel like I give so much (willingly) and expect others to do the same, but often they don’t and I get disappointed. I really need to learn to ‘accept’! Will definitely put this quote up in our house for my children to read, I think it is one that we can all learn from.
