Find some inspiration with a little help from my favourite quotes
Taking that step into the unknown can be full of fear and risk, but the possibilities and sense of achievement that comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone make it all so worth it. It's uncomfortable, but being stuck in the same place brings much more discomfort and regret in the long run.
I was reminded of this quote listening to a podcast this week. It reminded me that my vibe and energy will influence those around me. Try and make your interactions with others count.
It seems obvious that compassion may well be the answer to many of our difficulties, but it's so easily forgotten. Keeping this quote in mind might help us to remember.
Any quote that reminds me to slow down, make wise choices and be kind is a favourite quote of mine. Being kind to yourself and others is an under-rated tool for happiness.
Diane Von Furstenberg
We can be so critical and harsh towards ourselves. You wouldn't enjoy the company of someone else who treated you like that. Don't accept it from yourself either. Be kind to yourself instead.
I sometimes fall into the trap of looking outside of myself for happiness, I will believe that until I get X, Y or Z, I won't be happy. Quotes like this are my reminder that it's all about the journey ;)
Roy T. Bennett
I could use a Roy T. Bennett quote every day. This is a simple message, we have a choice in how we live our lives. We forget that. We live in a blame culture. I mess up, I do and say things I regret. taking responsibility for those things is what helps me move forward and attempt to do it different next time.
All too often I find myself talking about the things I want to do. Perhaps I will even make excuses for why I am unable to do them right now, but they are just excuses. This quote is always my reminder to make a plan of action and start, now.
