Quote of the day.

         Today, I am blending ‘Wordy Wednesday’ and ‘Quote of the day’, using a quote I stumbled upon during one of my jaunts to Facebook. Glad to know at least something good comes out of this pastime!

               How true it is! Our mind is a garden, considering the amount of ideas we cultivate, which when nurtured, grow and bear fruit.  Our thoughts, which come in every shape and colour, define our personality and take the form of actions exhibiting to the world our intrinsic nature.
              Our thoughts also decide what we make of the life given to us –  whether they encourage us to  utilise our skills to reach our potential,  or lead us astray, wasting all that we have been blessed with. There is this saying, “An empty mind is a devil’s workshop.”  The thoughts that pass through our vacant  mind can definitely create havoc on our system, bringing about complete destruction of our entire being. Such thoughts are the weeds that can ruin the garden if not uprooted and discarded in time, and replaced with cultivable plants that  act as an anchor,  and show us the way to live a healthy,  productive life.

This week’s prompt for Wordy Wednesday: Word prompt: Potential. 
This week’s prompt suggested by  B-A-R member, writer and blogger, Elly Stornebrink

Do you know the secret to living a happy life? Eat. Pray. Love. Or, watch what you eat, wish well for all and fill your heart with love! That's precisely what I try to do through my blogs: 'Metanoia', the wellness blogazine, and 'Fictionista', my blog for fiction and non-fiction. Welcome to my virtual homes!

  1. A wonderful quote: love that! 🙂 Indeed, our thoughts are powerful either way, used in a creative or destructive way. 🙂 A brilliant way to combine both Wordy Wednesday and a quote! 😉


  2. So true. But it is sad that most people don't accept the concept of what you feed your mind is what you reap! They hide this sad fact in the name of being practical and they continue feeding doubts and negativity into their heads!


  3. Thank you, Elly! The word prompt reminded me of this quote and hence decided to blend the two.
    Also, now that I have written about it, am trying to think only good, positive thoughts! 🙂


  4. Miltonic echoes in the quote Shilpa….mind in its own place can create a heaven out of hell and a hell out of heaven…..what we do with the thoughts we have defines who we are and directs our life….thanks for sharing the wonderful quote…


  5. Leave alone how words from other people can ruin our lives or deter our steps, primarily it is our thoughts that hinder us from moving forward. This is such a beautiful post.
