6a00d83451d6d969e201b7c7b8a091970b

I’ve been nominated for the 3 Days Quotes Challenge by Natasha Tungare. Thank you for the opportunity to share the wisdom of others who have inspired me! 🙂

Rules for the challenge are –

1. Thank the person who has nominated you for the challenge.
2. Post 3 quotes (1 for each day) for 3 days consecutively.
3. Nominate three more bloggers for the same challenge each day.

The theme I’d like to focus on during this challenge is TRUTH. To me, this is one of the most important aspects of life – do we seek it, do we have it and do we live it.

I hope you enjoy the selection of thinkers I found who had wonderful things to say on the subject.

Today’s quote

If you should find anything better in human life than justice, truth, self-control, courage, and, in a word, your mind’s contentment with itself in those things which it empowers you to practice in accordance with Reason, and to be contented with what has been allotted to you without any choice – if, I say, you see anything better than this, then with all your heart turn to it and take pleasaure in that which you have discovered to be best of all.

Marcus Aurelius

All THIS! I have yet to find something better than truth but if it exists, by all means, go in that direction. When we experience or willfully choose the pursuit of truth in all its forms – in our education, new discoveries, as a function in our relationships – all of them – with a commitment to honesty; we have chosen a path of quality.

Here’s to your good life! 🙂

Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime’s work, but it’s worth the effort.
Fred Rogers

Today’s quote

Without truth, however, we are out of luck before we even start.
Harry G. Frankfurt

We live with so much which is unknown. Having a verifiable knowledge or truth lets us go through life with more ease. That’s not to say that the unknown isn’t scary, it just means that having truth makes uncertainty seem less formidable.

Supplying The Angst

“In other words, anxiety is the fear that is looking for a reason.”
Giovanni Frazzetto

Having dealt with anxiety for a majority of my life, this description brought on a light bulb moment for me.

Anxiety – it’s a persistent and irrational fear which takes hold of you. Grasping you tight, winding you up forcefully till you can’t breathe anymore. Or least you think you can’t. What continues to escalate it is additional irrational thoughts added to the already panicky state. This quote identifies this process as our bodies needing to justify why it’s spiraling.

Perhaps it may give me ammunition when the next attack wants to tie me up in knots or, at the very least, slow down the reaction to my meltdown because I now have a rational thought to hang on to.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
