Hello all. Now, I have debated for years whether the information I am about to divulge is something that the world is ready to handle; I have come to the conclusion that yes world, you. are. ready.
Now that I have you on the edge of your seat, I must prepare you that this is big, people! I'm talking huge - Eiffel tower stacked on top the Empire State Building with the new world's tallest building in Dubai holding them both up, kind of huge!!! With that in mind, here goes . . .
Through the years people have quoted each other and found power in what language can do - it makes us laugh, cry, become violently angry and sometimes if we are lucky - it motivates. That is where "quotes" come in and become the reigning force behind inspiration. For years now it seems that the best quotes always come from someone mentioned simply as author unknown - without a doubt I know that at sometime, somewhere you have been listening to a quote and waiting on pins and needles for the originator to be divulged, only to have your dreams thwarted when the speaker reveals . . . "author unknown." I am here to make your dreams a reality by saying, "world - I, Mia Chard, am the infamous author unknown!" Wow - it feels great to get that out there. Humility can now be thrown aside as I take my place on the chalkboards of history!
Take this gem for example, "Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same." - yup, that was me.
How about this one, "Wind is to fire like distance is to love; it extinguishes the small and enflames the great." - yet again, me.
Lastly, one of my more deep proclamations, "The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it."(too true, Mia Chard, too true) Some may ask, "How do you do it?", my answer to those individuals is, frankly, I don't know - inspiration is like breathing - it comes in then goes out. The flow of genius is rarely able to be identified.
Now, I think that we all should be quotable. Go around for a day or two quoting yourself and trust me when I tell you, life gets good. Here are some quotes that I have recently caught myself saying:
"Eat Dirt!" - Mia Chard (one of my best and longest running quotes)
"I do believe that the lawn is in need of a trimming." - Mia Chard (pure poetry)
"Thank you for calling State Farm, this is Mia, how may I help you?" - Mia Chard (this one's a show stopper - I get a response every time)
Last but not least, "Whoever I am, I'm better than I was before and tomorrow I can be ever greater than today." - Mia Chard
There you have it. I have disclosed a huge part of my life and boy, do I feel better! Now for my challenge: Go out and BE QUOTABLE!
