Gems 376 Stephen King Shawshank Freedom

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs are too sweet and wild.  So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”  Stephen King, Rita Hayworth in the Shawshank Redemption

Journey Notes

Special thanks to JP for today’s quote.  The suggested theme for July is “freedom,”  but if you have a favorite quote about any other uplifting subject, please let us know.  We’re always accepting favorite quotes.

You Are Worth It

You are so worth it

Photographer unknown. Special thanks to BlissForgive and Rajni on KindSpring.org for sharing this beautiful story. I will put this in my notebook under the tab for “My Own Best Friend” vs. “…Worst Enemy”

You are worth it. You are greater than your struggle, the pain, the times when you didn’t think you could go another day repeating the kind of life you thought you were stuck with. You are more than the tears spilled onto your pillowcase, the secret notes you’ve scrawled with a heavy heart to yourself and yourself alone because you did not know who else to turn to. You are human. It is okay. We all stumble. We all can fall. But I believe you can stand up once again. You are worth it.
