Famous Quotes By Brooke Hampton
- “Personally, I don’t find swearing offensive. I do find, backstabbing, lying, being a judgmental asshole, cheating and fucking people over offensive, but not swearing.”
― Enchanted Cedar: The Journey Home
- “Am I witch? I don’t know. That’s what they call me. They say it’s because I follow the rhythms of the earth, honor the seasons, dance under the moon and seek the ancient herbal wisdom of our ancestors. “Folk Lore, poppycock, myths,” they say as they sneer at the rosemary in my cup, the comfrey brewing on the stove and turmeric stains on my hands. “Western medicine and science have replaced all that nonsense,” they say. They make witches out to be evil and then call me a witch because I am seeking the knowledge & ancient wisdom that the world seems hell bent on forgetting. Well, they can call me what they like, but I know I am not evil. This is what I know: I am an intuitive woman who instinctively knows that this sacred earth holds healing that western medicine will never be able to replace. I will be here holding space. I will be their witch. So, here I am- A kitchen witch sipping her Rosemary tea, mixing up her herbal potion, dancing under the moon, and fighting for the knowledge & wisdom of our grandmothers to not be forgotten.”
- “I will spend my life traveling, laughing, drinking all kinds of tea, meeting new people, reading good books, growing things, creating beauty, eating chocolate, doing magic, making love and occasionally I will write something worth reading.”
― Enchanted Cedar: The Journey Home
- “Drama doesn’t just walk into your life. Either you create it, invite it or associate with it.”
- “This has been a really tough lesson for me to learn. The people I love, I love hard and without conditions. My loyalty, once earned, will be with you for a lifetime. I really get that we are all connected and that until we all get it, no-one is getting it. That said, I’m also learning that some people are not a good match for us and their presence in our life is incredibly toxic. We can still love them, we just need to love them from a distance. Maybe after a few more reincarnations, we’ll be able to love them up close again.”
- “It’s a powerful thing to be able to stand up and say, “I was broken, and I fell apart from the pain of it all. No one came to save me. I woke up one day and decided I was ready to rise and so I did. I survived. I rose and I’m not f*cking going back”
- “Hell on earth: A crowded room with no books, no music and not a soul around that understands you.”
- “I have a dream…
I dream of undoing the damage we’ve done.
I dream of clean water, clean air and clean soil.
Will you dream with me?”
- “A creator used to create’
You got me young…
You told what to want;
you showed me in your movies and your shows.
And I faithfully did your work.
I willingly clipped my wings and built myself a golden cage and you smiled and said, “well done.”
I let your fear tactics rule my actions until I could no longer hear my heart song.
I took your medication and I ate your poison until my body was too sick to fight back.
Ah, but I’m onto your game.
I see it now and my only regret is that I didn’t see it sooner.
I made a life for myself only to realize it’s never really what I wanted. My soul didn’t want this hectic, materialistic life- your greed and your thirst for power wanted this.
I don’t belong here, but you’ve always known that, haven’t you?
You figured if you kept me caged long enough, kept me sick enough, kept me scared enough that I would eventually forget what I am.
You slipped up with this one.
So, hear me now.
You had your fun with me, but I’ve had about enough of your bullshit for one lifetime.
Watch me fly.”
- “Speak to them as if you were on stage in front of thousands of people. Respond to them with the respect they deserve. They are our future. Guard your tongue. Be brave enough to try harder.
Let’s create a childhood that our children won’t have to recover from.”
- “Don’t spend your life working a job you hate just to buy more shit you don’t need. Grow a set and do something different. Maybe it’s time to try out your wings and go create a life that is good for your soul.”
- “Don’t stay here. Go forward! I know it’s scary, but it will be worth it. Because even if you fail, you’ll be better, stronger, and more capable for it. You need this change, this challenge, this growth. Go find out what life is like on the other side of your fear.”
- “Don’t be their friend, be their parent!”, they say. Hmm…yea, fuck that advice. To each their own, but I pretty much think that’s the worst advice you could offer. I know far too many teens who come talk to me about their REAL life because they can’t talk to their parents. We are headed into preteen years and I want my girls to be able to talk to me about what’s really going on with them. I don’t want them to be scared to talk to me for fear that I will be angry or disappointed. People tell me that I’ll regret this and that it will bite me in the ass someday. I’ll take my chances. The way I see it is: You can’t scare someone into changing, you’ll just scare them enough that they learn how to pretend. They will put on a mask and they may never find the courage to take it off. I’ve been telling them they could trust me since they were born; not with my words, but with my actions. One reaction at a time, letting them know that I’m not scared of who they are. I share my opinions and I give advice when the time is right, but mostly I’m here to hold space for them while they find their way in this world. I’m not worried about my kids appearing perfect, I’m worried about them being one person in front of me and an entirely different person when I’m not around. I choose to be their friend and get to know them as they are, not as I want them to be.”
- “You might make people uncomfortable,
even those you love them most and it will hurt.
The masses will likely misunderstand you and as a result they will judge you and even lash out at you and you may have to walk alone sometimes.
Your joy, your freedom and your magic will infuriate those who feel trapped in a life they secretly hate.
When your truth threatens someones belief system, they will come at you like a storm and you will have to stand and let them roar all around you.
If you’re creating change, the people benefiting from the current system will likely try to stop you. Be brave. Stand. Hold space for change.
Keep writing. Keep dancing. Keep singing. Keep shining your light on the world.
We need your beauty and your truth.
We need you- the real you!”
- “May we each have the courage to move past our programming, and the example that was set for us. Let’s dig deep and do our personal work so that we can be the best version of ourselves for these little earth warriors.
It’s time to redefine parenting!
Our aim is not to be perfect- Our aim is only to create a childhood that our children don’t have to recover from.”
- “I don’t eat healthy because I’m trying to avoid death. Death does not scare me. I am, however, terrified of dying before I am dead. I have a strong desire to make the best of the time I have here.
Living foods straight from the Earth help my body thrive, my imagination soar and my mind stay clear. It’s about quality of life for me. I feel the best when I eat a diet free of pesticides, chemicals, GMOs and refined sugars.
Growing herbs and making my own medicine helps me stay connected to the Earth; hence, helping me connect with my true purpose here.
I have work to do here! I choose to leave this planet more beautiful than I found it and eating magical foods gives me the energy and inspiration I need to do my work.”
- “Touch the earth and let it touch you” ~Barefoot Mama”
- “I am pieces of all the places I have been,
and the people I have loved. I’ve been stitched together by song lyrics, book quotes, adventure, late night conversations, moonlight, and the smell of coffee.”
- “There is nothing wrong with technology. It’s a gift! I don’t think we should keep our kids away from the modern conveniences of our time, but I do believe it’s time to regain some balance. Children can benefit from technology, but they need nature. Let them have their video games and Internet, but make sure they are getting equal amounts of mud, dirt, sticks, puddles, free play and imagination.”
- “Kids are tough sometimes. There are moments when I’m so frustrated and don’t feel like we understand each other. When I hit a moment like this and words of aggravation are on the tip of my tongue, this is what I say to myself:
You have been given the unbelievable honor of taking care of and loving the next generation of people. Your work with them is hands down the most important work you’ll ever do. Think about how many people these children will come in contact with in their life time. The messages and love you give them or don’t give them will be your voice in the future. Think about that when you’re aggravated or tired. Every word you speak over them matters. Your voice and the unspoken energy you’re sending them are more powerful than you can possibly imagine. Speak to them as if they are Kings and Queens and you are on stage in front of thousands of people -because that’s how they deserve to be treated.
Give them the best of you.”
