Rosa Parks


Do you ever read quotes that apply directly to your current life situation? I stumbled across this quote

the other day and it really hit home.

“Stand for something or you’ll fall for anything. Today’s mighty oak is yesterday’s nut that held its

ground.”- Rosa Parks

How true is this in every aspect of life. Whether it’s personal relationships, friendships, or work if you

don’t stand for what you believe in then you’re going to fall for anything. We must always have a

passion and faith in the things we believe in

Rosa Parks had a passion for a life of equality. So often we conform to what society THINKS we should

be instead of what we really believe in. Today I challenge you to think about what YOU believe in. This

should be in every aspect of your life and be your true feelings, not the feelings of others in society.

I knew this quote would be perfect for this week’s blog because I knew today was Rosa Park’s birthday.

From all of us that want to live a life of equality and personal strength- Happy Birthday Rosa Parks!

Here are a few of my other favorite quotes from Rosa Parks:

“You must never be fearful about what you’re doing when it is right.” – Rosa Parks

“I had no idea that history was being made, I was just tired of giving up.” – Rosa Parks

“Each person must live their life as a model for others.” – Rosa Parks
