Monday Inspiration: May 25, 2015 (Memorial Day)

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Happy Memorial Day weekend. Of course, on a day like today we remember those who have died while serving our great country. It’s also a day filled with BBQs, food, family and relaxing (something we can do because of those the day honors).

I hope my U.S. readers had a lovely and relaxing long weekend. And for those of you not in the U.S., I hope you had an inspiring and fun Monday back in the grind.

New York is hot, sticky and noisy. We are all out and about, children dancing in park fountains and dogs dragging their owners down the congested sidewalks. Winter has finally retreated, I think. I hope. Let’s just declare it as so.

My weekend was filled with good conversation. That is rare and always a treat.

[Pippa Middleton for Vanity Fair]

“To me, a man is someone who is brave enough to love, and let himself be loved.” Louis Sachar, Small Steps

[How bar review days are spent:]

“You will never know the fullness of Christ until you know the emptiness of everything else but Christ.” Charles Spurgeon

“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“No star stops burning in the sky because it isn’t a planet, it does what it needs to do, so must you. So be, and continue to be, until you realize what that truly means because when you see what you really are, you start to see life differently. You were never meant to compete with those around you, you were meant to live life in a way that invites others to join you in this journey.” T.B. LaBerge // Go Now

[Kendall Jenner @Cannes2015]

“When I saw you, I knew my one day was today, and every day to come.” T.B. LaBerge // My One Day is Today
