“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud” – Maya Angelou
Good morning peeps, meditation done.
Quote for the Day:
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud”
When I was a child I discovered Maya Angelou through reading her books, which were in my mother’s bookcase. I remember reading her first autobiography, ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’, without knowing the impact her words would have on my life.
Dr. Angelou’s autobiographical series captured the attention of readers and critics for over 33 years since the first publication of ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings; in 1969.
She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and was credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees.
Maya Angelou is best known for her series of seven autobiographies, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first, ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’, tells of her life up to the age of 17 and brought her international recognition and acclaim.
She led an incredible life and started out as a streetcar conductor and her career continued with a wide range of jobs such as a Creole cook, a madam, a prostitute, a dancer, a singer, an actress, a civil right activist, an editor, a writer a producer, and a teacher.
She witnessed many significant historical events and worked along influential leaders of the Civil Rights movement such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. She read, ‘On the Pulse of the Morning’, at the presidential inauguration of Bill Clinton in 1993 and was a great mentor and friend of Oprah Winfrey right up until her death in Winston-Salem on Wednesday 28th of May 2014, aged 86.
I was greatly influenced by her books and love her quotes and today’s quote comes from a ‘Letter to My Daughter’
“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.”
Her words are as beautiful as they are meaningful. We cannot control the things that happen to us, but we can control how we react to them. We have a choice to react to anything in life positively or negatively. If you do not like something in your life do something about it and change it instead of always moaning about things and doing nothing. Change starts in your own mind, if you change the way you are thinking this will have a knock on positive effect on your life.
If you want to change your life for the better, then you have to change it. No one else can change your life, except you.
