Mabel Alvarez - Self-Portrait


You must do the things you think you cannot do.
Eleanor Roosevelt

The subconscious is ceaselessly murmuring, and it is by listening to these murmurs that one hears the truth.
Gaston Bachelard

It's so important to push through and try. Love your first quote!

Joanne said...

Love the Roosevelt quote. What a brave and fulfilling way to choose to live, following her words.

Judy Harper said...

Such as what her husband did after he contracted polio! He did manage to sort of walk and he did run for office, which with a handicap in his era was unheard of! Good post!

Jerrie said...

He & Me + 3 said...

My words for this week:
DON'T QUIT! No matter what, don't quit!

christy rose said...

I have some bloggy love for you over at my place. :)

Randi said...

Loved both of these quotes! The second one is so true. When we quiet down and really listen to what our hearts tell us, we hear the truth.

Jenny in Utah said...

Testament of that is how easy it is for us to talk ourselves out of doing something "hard" ... the easy way usually isn't the best way in the end! Love it - and the lovely painting.

Jillien said...

Those quotes were beautiful and I adore that painting! Such strong feminine figures! Another incredible Sunday Citar.

Vicky said...

Oh the first one is especially speaking to me today :) Thanks for the encouragement... so true! I so could have used this last week!

Two quotes to share
Of inspiring care.
Listen and don't just look
As realisation often mistook!

Have a great day. Thank you. Take care. Bye.

The Write Girl said...

Michelle said...

I love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote. That's so perfect for so many of our lives. Thank you!

Teri said...

Eleanor Roosevelt - a favorite. It's funny how, when we do what we cannot do, we have suddenly changed our repertoire of doable things.

You may thank my philosophy degree for that. hehe

Judith Ellis said...

Lovely, Kelly. Thank you.

Flory said...

So true about pushing ourselves. I recently read a post that we have to make our own miracles - time to take action.

Have a great week Kelly!

Corrie Howe said...

She did a wonderful job on her self portrait. I agree with Eleanor, we must do the things we can't

"The subconscious is ceaselessly murmuring, and it is by listening to these murmurs that one hears the truth-" I have been having weird dreams every night. Maybe I should start listening...
