Hello! Today I am starting a new blog post that is exclusive ONLY to LILbooKlovers (or so I think)!
As a book blogger, I want to inspire people, but not just book-related things. I believe books have the power to CHANGE you. Have you read a book that has gotten you through a rough time or changed your perception of the world? This year, I’ve encountered so many of those books. Inside those books are quotes that stick with you for a while, and I want to share these quotes with you! I will not only list the quote, but I’ll give a little reflection, something to ponder about. One quote has the potential to help your life, and that’s why I want to start these quote-flections. I want to inspire others to become better people, and this is how I could do that through my blog! I hope that you will take the time to read this quote and reflection (a few thoughts and questions) and ponder or meditate on how you can apply it to your life!
So here’s the first ever quote-flection from Configured by Jenetta Penner (and there will be a review of it later this week)!
“Avlyn, this world is both beautiful and broken. Make more beautiful moments than broken ones.”
– Jenetta Penner, Configured
As you know, this world isn’t perfect. There are both good things and bad things, but it is OUR choice whether or not to make our lives good or bad. Our future mostly depends on our decisions, and they have the potential to also change other people’s lives. Choosing to smile at a fellow co-worker may brighten up his day and help him cope with depression. Choosing to get irritated at said co-worker could anger him and cause him to have a bad day. These little things- they may not seem great to us- seem the world to others. Doing small acts of charity is making beautiful moments. It makes not only us happy but others happy.
But it’s not just others’ lives that are affected. Our lives are too included. We are a product of our choices, and we have the power to change the world… even if it’s just a little at a time. Each decision you make has the potential to increase the beauty of the world or its brokenness. A beautiful moment does not have to literally be beautiful; it’s just got to make life better for you, make life more fun, make life worth living. How can you turn a dull and boring moment? By adding love into what you are doing. That’s the way to create as many beautiful moments as possible!
- Are you making more beautiful moments? Or are you making more broken ones? How can you bring more beauty, more joy, and more happiness in both your and others’ lives?
- Is there something in your life that you can make more beautiful?
- Are your choices and actions upon others making their lives beautiful or broken?
Well, I hope you took enjoyed this weekly quote-flection! I will do more in the future, and I do hope that these will help you live a better life! Thanks so much for reading!
