I was always drawn to inspirational reading. Especially something short and moving. When I was three years old, my beautiful mother married my step-father and left my grandparents to live in a rural area. Since that age, I had lived with my grandpa, grandma, aunties, and uncles. I loved them all, and they offered me the best support and love they could.
However, I always missed my mom. She lived far, but the library, where my mother worked, was about thirty-minutes walking distance from my school. Once I reached the age when I could move around the city by myself, I would surprise her with an unexpected visit and spend short but happiest moments of my childhood with her.
My mom’s library was small and cozy, so I would browse through the new book arrivals in a rush, trying to grasp the essence of the books that jumped at me. I felt a constant thirst for learning something inspiring, something that would help me make sense of the world I lived in and sometimes struggled with at that time. Some extracts of books were like a snapshot or a brief summary that would keep me inspired for days or even weeks until I went back to that magical place where I could satisfy my two primary needs: a need for love and a need for learning. My mom and books seemed to be able to give me what I needed.
Since my childhood, I do not like going to libraries. They remind me of the times I cannot bring back. After many years of working as a librarian, my mother got sick and could not work anymore. Her life was short, but the love for the books that she instilled in me is life-love. My mother helped me to develop a loyal love for inspirational quotes, meaningful poems, brief positive thoughts, unique and encouraging ideas.
Throughout my life, when I felt utterly lonely and hopeless, those brief inspirational quotes and poems reminded me of my dreams and goals and gave me the strength to pursue them. When I finally became stronger and happier, I started writing and sharing my quotes with others. I love to inspire and uplift everyone I meet on my journey, but most of all I am passionate about empowering women. That’s why the majority of my quotes and stories are devoted to women.
My wonderful readers of all nations, from all over the world, I hope you will enjoy the quotes and poems! My heart is reaching out to you to let you know that you are not alone… we are all connected. Love is around us; love is within us.
