Words of Wisdom, Thought and Inspiration

From time to time Spring shares her insights through a simple phrase that can inspire, raise curiosity, cause us to think about what we’re doing and what we’re showing to the world. Here on Springwolf Reflection’s we have shared some of those quotes in the sidebar as a reminder to be Mindful of your thoughts and actions.

Recently we have discovered a lot of search requests here on the blog for quotes and sayings. We really don’t have a place to list them all and we thought maybe we should. So this is in response to your queries on the site and everyone here at Spring’s Haven want to say thank you for the inspiration to build this section of the blog to share Lady Spring’s Quotes and Annual Mottoes.

None of these quotes are new ideas or new concepts. As humans we often need to be reminded of certain principles we hold dear, but often forget about in every day life. So we can use quotes (regardless of their source) as inspiration to improve our own life.

We can take inspirational words with us as we go out into the world and be the best that we can be. To live by the words that hold up the foundation of our beliefs, faith, character and ideal self.

Be the best you that you can be and discover the happiness and fulfillment of a lifetime within yourself.

Have Faith, Not Hope!

Jim Carrey inspired this quote. Spring added her twist to something he said at a Commencement address.
You can read more about that on “Have Faith, Not Hope“.

He said something that got me thinking.
Take a chance on faith. Not religion, but faith. Not hope, but faith. I don’t believe in hope. Hope is a beggar. Hope walks through the fire and Faith leaps over it.
Jim Carrey © 2014

Spring altered that quote a little bit. Wanting something easier to remember and that could be shared with others.
We can’t copyright this quote, that still belongs to Mr. Carrey.
“Have Faith, Not Hope.
Hope is a beggar. Faith is a Believer.
Hope walks through the fire. Faith leaps over it.

The Annual Motto:
Each year Spring creates a motto to recite to help get through the tough moments within that calendar year. Most of the time, you can tell how stressful a period of time might be, by the tone of the motto. She began this practice in 2001, a particularly tough period in her life. She filed for divorced, moved away from where all her family lived and tried to renew a fresh perspective of her world. She’s often said, 2001 is when my real life began.

2017: I go with the flow and accept that all things move in their right time and space. I am safe and allow joy into my life.
2016: I let go of worry and trust the Divine will care for me and my family. I am filled with prosperity for financial and healthy abundance.
2015: In this moment I am abundant with joy, good health and prosperity in all areas of my life.
2014: I am at peace and live in the moment, with all the prosperity and abundance I require!
2013: I attract more happiness and financial abundance than I know what to do with.
2012: I am happy and successful with abundance all around me.
2011: I am happy, strong and successful in the face of adversity.
2010: The path ahead is filled with abundance.
2009: We will not fall, we will not fail.
2008: I can achieve the goals I put my mind to.
2007: I am blessed and that’s all that matters.
2006: I’m worth the attention and deserve the opportunity.
2005: I can because I have to.
2004: It is what it is.
2003: I don’t mind, because you don’t matter.
2002: It’s a job, not an adventure
2001: I don’t care, I get paid.
