Some of you already know Florence.
Some even have your own “Florence”.
But for those who haven’t;
This is Florence, my jam jar.
She is full of inspiration and
on rainy days when things are looking bleak
or I feel a bit down, or I need motivation
or just when I feel like it
I delve in and pick out one of the tickets
Upon which are written things like;
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens,
but often we look so long at the closed door
that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”
“There is more to life than increasing its speed”
“In the hopes of reaching the moon
men fail to see the flowers
that blossom at their feet.”
“Always do what you are afraid to do.”
“Men’s best successes come after their disappointments.”
“Fortune favours the brave”
“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm”
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you have imagined”
So on rainy days when things are looking bleak
or you feel a bit down, or you need motivation
or just when you feel like it
delve in and pick out one of the tickets
What a great idea! How inspiring.
Thank you-Lots of people have created their own “Florence” since my first post. I know one jam jar is called “Eddie”! It’s something I can use periodically to give people new quotes etc to put into their jar. Another idea is to put tasks in so you do something different every day. Simple things like, walk in the park, bake a cake, watch a file, massage your temples, ring a friend etc.
