Tuesdays Are For Inspiration

Start here:

Press play on this video and then read the rest of the quotes.

It is better to be a lion for a day 
than a sheep all your life.
-Elizabeth Kenny

Boy, I got vision and the rest of the world wears bifocals.
-Butch Cassidy

I'd like to be more approachable, 
not less weird.
-Chloe Sevigny, actress

No one ever hears positive internal voices. When you hear the voice in your head saying, "Who are you to do this? Who are you to do that?" just know it comes from the accuser. God never asks you, "who are you?" 
He knows exactly who you are.
-Jon Acuff, NOW Conference 2011

Be yourself, don't take anyone's shit and never let them take you alive.
-Gerard Way, singer/musician

This is why 
Why we fight.
Why we lie awake.
And this is why
This is why we fight.
When we die.
We will die 
With our arms unbound.
-The Decemberists, "Why We Fight"

Now is your time.
Walk closely with people you love and with other people who believe that God is very good and life is a grand adventure.
-Relevant Magazine, Dec 2010 issue

Only be strong an very courageous.
-Joshua 1:7

This Tuesday, my hope is that you are inspired to embrace how ridiculous you are. That this Tuesday you would let what make you excellent be the thing you stop keeping under wraps. 

For just one moment this weekend I felt the true weight of deciding you don't care when someone doesn't agree with or approve of or like your ideas. 
And it was gone again because I'm not good at it yet.
But I was grateful for the reminder.
The reminder that I was made well.
And that I can't ever let them take me alive.
Go ahead and accept it, we are the outsiders.
And as Needtobreathe says, "you're free to roam on the outside."
That sounds so wonderful.
