Your Something

The other day I was venting (complaining) to someone about a struggle I was having. They responded with some wonderful words of advice: There will always be something in life we have to deal with. Right now, this is just your something.

This reminded me not to get too caught up in my little problem. I also saw this online quote that I found to be quite grounding, hope you enjoy!

Be okay with not knowing for sure what might come next but know that whatever it is you will be okay.

Friendship

"The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart."

- Elisabeth Foley


Your Own Style

"What if you just did it your own way? No rules, no right or wrong, just what you think is beautiful?"

- Sandra Magsamen


Try Again Tomorrow

Sometimes I find myself getting so tired of a project I become unproductive and frustrated. That is why I love this quote:

There are times when the best thing you can do is walk away and come back another day.

- Richard Rybolt


Trying to Focus on the Positive

I am guilty of letting little things get me down. In fact, when I read these quotes I felt like I was being called out. I think they are great for helping keep life's little inconveniences in perspective!

"A man's as miserable as he thinks he is."

- Lucius Annaeus Seneca 

 

"Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it."

- Fyodor Dostoevsky

 


Worry Not

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength."

- Carrie Ten Boom

Cornelia "Corrie" ten Boom was a Dutch Christian who, along with her father and other family members, helped many Jews excape the Nazi Holocaust during World War War II. She was imprisoned for her actions (Wikipedia).


Encouragement

I read an awesome quote today:

"A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success."

Hopefully we can adopt this concept into how we treat others.
