Motivational Quote of the Day: June 16

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
" A happy and meaningful life requires our continuous input and creativity. It does not happen by chance. It happens because of our choices and actions. And each day we are given new opportunities to choose and act and, in doing so, we create our own unique journey. Keep going..."

author unknown.



about this new Lounge thread: After talking with our wonderful Social Director, I am able to bring to you, a Motivational Quote each day that I can. I am trying to stay away from Religion/Religious quotations because we have many different faiths, Religions and beliefs on this board. Some days it might be a funny quote, sometimes a deep meaning quote...but all will have a positive them to it.

It is there for you to read, to discuss, to respond, to whatever you wish... food for thought, something to make you smile or something to make you think. It is there for whatever reason you want it to be. You need not post if you don't want to, as some quotes may just be completely random and bring a smile. Or like the one above, a discussion could occur.

The reason I asked to do this, is a combination of reasons.

I see so many people hurting, angry, hopeless and down on their luck these days.... a positive quotation might help, it might not. But there's no harm in trying.

Me: my selfish reason... during my chronic depression, reading motivational quotes helps me. So I would like to think it would help others, but, since I have nothing really else to do, this gives me a responsibility (to myself really) to post this thread.

***These quotes are random, by no one author in specific, and if you'd like to see any of your favorite motivational quotes posted, please PM them to me. These daily MQ's are not meant to have other MQ's added to the thread, as we don't want to have them all in one post. We need to spread out the positive thoughts in this great time of struggle and negativity.***

At the end of a week or 2, I will post a poll asking if this is something you would like to see continue at TCS

Hopefully, I don't make a lot of people here mad by posting this but I tend to say what I think.

Sometimes I come in here and see quite a few very sad posts about people having a rough time either with their family, job (non job) car, health ect. I was thinking it a good idea to make one continual 'boo-boo' thread for anyone that feels like venting about their personal trials so they're not spread all across the front page of the lounge. I really sympathize with all of them and sometimes what they go through makes me cry my eyes out. I understand the need to vent and share with others. But for me, I find it very depressing because it's a constant reminder of my own problems of being unemployed, zero income, lots of health issues and deaths in my family. I try not to post about those because I know there are so many people with much bigger problems than I have.

THANK YOU Chris for posting positive, inspirational quotes and sending good vibes here at TCS! I'm hoping it's a great motivation for others (it is for me!) so they feel there is a light at the end of their dark tunnel. Like karma, if you feel angry at the universe it will only make you feel worse and it passes on to someone else like a virus. Smiling rubs off on others and it makes you feel better Spreading sunshine NEVER hurts!!

I'm hoping that your motivational quotes will spread a little HOPE to those going through tough times

I think this is a nice idea. Thanks!!

Short and sweet, might not help anyone but certainly won't hurt anyone.

I have reread this quote many times, but can't say I agree with it 100%. I do believe some things in life are chance, but based on our choices and actions.

For example: It was by chance that I responded to my husbands personal ad and we ended up marrying years later... but it was my choice as well, but chance that I chose his and not one of the others I was interested in.

I love the ending of this one, its so true... Each day presents us with oppurtunities to choose and act....keep going.

Well said Cat. Smiling does wear off on others, as does laughing, as does kindness.

I, too, hope this new daily feature will help others....even if just a small smile in a state of depression.

Thanks for the feedback.... Yup, it's not going to hurt anyone... and if it helps one person smile, then my job is done and I will continue posting them daily.

First of all, Chris, I think it's a great idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Second - Rigel, are you nuts or what? Your enthusiasm, your support, and YOU are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Cat, while I think maybe a "vent" thread or a "whine" thread is a good idea, personally, I wouldn't want to have to try to keep track of all the situations where people need support and vibes in one big thread. Perhaps if you're finding other people's needs for support depressing, just don't open the threads?

Interesting point, Chris. But I still think it isn't chance, because I guess I don't believe in chance. How best to put it... Because I believe that everything happens for a reason, by definition I can't believe in "chance." So... I think our "mindset" at any given time affects our choices and actions. So while you see it as chance that you responded to his personal ad and not someone else's, I see it that choices and actions led to the presence of mind that helped "create" that choice of which ad to respond to.

I too believe everything happens for a reason but I think chance can play a part in it...maybe.... hmmm, now I'm all (easily done)

But now that I think about it more deeply, in the situ I described, it wasn't like I flipped a coin and just randomly picked out of the ads I liked ( we met over a telephone dating service ) to respond to, I made the choice to respond to his, amongst a couple others.
