Every since I heard first heard her poem “Return to Love” used by Nelson Mandela in his inauguration speech, I fell in love with her wisdom. Here are seven of the most insightful lessons from her:
1- Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.
2- Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle. 3- We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? 4- Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here. 5- The new midlife is where you realize that even your failures make you more beautiful and are turned spiritually into success if you became a better person because of them. You became a more humble person. You became a more merciful and compassionate person. 6- The key to abundance is meeting limited circumstances with unlimited thoughts. 7- Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are. Hope you love her wisdom too!
