Quotations & Lyrics on SoaringTM
Reading inspirational quotes and listening to
uplifting lyrics have helped to pick up my spirits during times I was feeling
low. Sometimes, it seems that all one needs is the right quote, poem, song
or inspirational message at the crucial moment to help shift a bad mood
into a better one or help provide some needed perspective on a loss or
life crisis. Reading and re-reading inspirational messages can help serve
as a mantra to focus upon not allowing life's circumstances to get a person
down, helping to realize that he/she can survive.
Since college, I have had inspirational messages
posted in my apartment as posters, cards or sayings to serve as visual
reminders, postive cues to help make my surroundings more up-beat and optimistic.
This was especially important during medical school and residency training,
when the positive reinforcement, thanks and recognition for a job well-done
often was scarce in coming.
The Soaring™ Quotes and Lyrics contain a collection
of inspirational messages, quotes and lyrics along the theme of "soaring"
or "flying." They were selected to serve as an "Emergency Pick-Me-Up" and
a grief AIDE to help soothe the heart, lift the spirit and allow us to
dream dreams "of things that are not and should be.
|...and over our heads
will float the bluebird,
singing of beautiful
of things that are lovely
and that never happened,
of things that are not
and that should be.
People who soar are
those who refuse to sit back, sigh and wish things would change.
They neither complain
of their lot nor passively dream of some distant ship coming in.
Rather, they visualize
in their minds that they are not quitters;
they will not allow life's
circumstances to push them down and hold them under.
