Hey there wonderful! For today’s post I decided to round up 5 quotes that I really liked, and write a little bit of the reason I liked them so much. We can all use some motivation and positivity in our lives, and I hope you can find that in this post.
“Just because someone carries it well, doesn’t mean it isn’t heavy.”
I think that this quote is important because it reminds us that we all carry something–some burden–each and every day. Different burdens are not the same for each person. We all handle certain things different and you never know what another person is dealing with. Not only that but you don’t know how it effects them personally. It does not matter how the exact same burden would effect you. You are not them. You cannot hold yourself to the same standards as others, when the reality is you are different people from different worlds. In the same way, you can’t expect everyone react in the same manner to things the way that you do.
“When you get tired learn to rest, not quit.”
I think that the importance of this goes without saying. Getting tired, mentally and physically, is inevitable. And resting is so so important. The most vital thing is that we recognize when we need that rest and we prioritize it for ourselves before that rest turns into quitting.
“Work hard in silence. Let success be your noise.”
Sometimes it seems that our initial reaction to a big accomplishment or setting a goal is to announce it to other people. There is nothing wrong with that, and it is true that accountability can help us stick to our goals. However I also feel that there are advantages to keeping some things quiet, just to treasure for yourself. For one, it helps you to remember that what you are doing is for you. It also takes a measure of judgment and pressure off of you, and that is what we need sometimes.
“Taking care of myself does not mean “me first” it means “me too.”
Self care, and putting priority on ones own health can sometimes have a bad stigma with people. When you say, “I need to take care of myself,” people hear, “I don’t care about you, I only care about me.” I like this quote because it is a really good reminder that sometimes taking care of ourselves first is ultimately taking care of those around us too. It is not selfish to make sure that you are okay.
“Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure.”
Some circumstances are out of control. Some days we have bad moments. I am a firm believer that is okay to have these bad moments, and it is okay to feel the emotions that come along with them. But our attitude has such an immense effect in the end. We are human and it is unreasonable to be happy and positive 24/7. But, dwelling in negativity is like drowning. Positivity can make a bad situation bearable, and even create a great growing experience if we work at it.
Those are today’s 5 motivational quotes. It was honestly therapeutic and fun to write. I hope that you enjoyed this post, and thank you so much for reading this far. If you did enjoy this post don’t forget to subscribe so that you won’t miss a thing!
