For today’s post I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite quotes and tell you what they mean to me.
One of my favorite quotes right now is “the day you decide to love yourself is the day you’ll conquer the world.”
I took it as my 2016 motto and it motivates me to be kind to myself, not to judge my flaws too harshly or get angry at myself for every little mistake.
When you accept every part and aspect of yourself your confidence grows, you don’t let people walk all over you and mistreat you anymore, you can conquer the whole world.
“If flowers can teach themselves how to bloom after winter passes, so can you.”
It’s totally normal to have a bad day or to go through a rough moment of your life; everybody have their own problems and everybody have their own time to process things and let go the negativity.
Things will get better, they always do; but you have to remember that “a negative mind will never give you a positive life”.
As difficult as it is you must always try to find the beauty in everything and everybody, hold tight to that and find your way out of that ark period.
In line with the empowerment vibe, these are another two of my favorites:
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself” & “Admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own.”
A funny one I found once exploring the internet is: “A woman without a man is like a fish without a bike”. It made me laugh and completely agree with it. It can be even considered from a masculine point of view, I’m not trying to be all feminist and proud now, but it’s true that every one of us don’t need anyone else to make us feel more complete, a better person or anything more than we already are.
We are all unique and wonderful in our own way.
“Not ’til we are lost do we begin to find ourselves.”
I don’t know why but this quote has always impressed me, it’s even hard to explain but I find it fascinating and incredibly realistic.
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not,I hope you have the strength to start over.”
I know I made a few mistakes writing it down but I don’t particularly care about it because I wasn’t minding the words themselves, but their meaning.
I then added “Fight for yourself. Your life. Your happiness.”
The last quote I’d like to share with you is: “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence, then, is not an act, is an habit.”
