Whether you’re suffering from monday blues, writers block or just wanting to feel inspired here are my top 10 quotes to live by!
So to kick things off…
I think it’s very easy in this social media world we now live in to get caught up in likes and numbers on a screen. A lot of people will follow to unfollow to try and get you to follow them back and boost their own numbers. We need to remember it isn’t a numbers game and by helping others, we help ourselves.
I feel like this is such an important reminder that we should all take on board. Sometimes people, whether they be family, friends or total strangers, upset you. It is inevitable that you will unfortunately be let down by people in this life. However, the best thing you can do is learn to let these things go and forgive them. Not for their sake but your own and for your own mental health.
This life can get really tough at times. We can feel totally lost and wind up in dark places but we must always remember that there is so much more to this life. It will be okay.
You must remember that you are free to do want you want and be the person you want to be. You have to do it for you and learn to love yourself along the way.
Nobody is perfect and although we may feel insecure about our flaws and how broken we are inside, we can still shine bright. We are still capable of happiness, it’s inside us all somewhere.
I will say it over and over again, please stop comparing yourself to strangers on the internet. You are not seeing their real life, their true self. You are not seeing past the camera lens. Whatever you may think you are seeing, you are not. The internet is one big illusion, don’t trust it.
If you smile at some, if you help them to open a door, if you strike up conversation or even just smile at someone you could make their day. You have the ability to turn somebodies life around, to restore somebody’s faith in humanity.
You could walk somebody on the street and not know they are grieving, that they are thinking of suicide, that they are in chronic pain. Be kind, because you just don’t know. You don’t know how much somebody may need that tiny ray of hope, that little piece of kindness. Every day you have a chance to make somebody’s change for the better. Take advantage of that, because you will never get to live any of your days twice.
The quiet person sat alone in the corner sketching, tell them how amazing it is. Reach out to new bloggers and give compliments. Give genuine comments on Instagram posts. Build peoples up, plant tiny seeds of self belief, give them the tools to water those seeds and to believe in themselves. Make them feel special in a world that tries to tell them they aren’t.
If you’ve had a difficult past or previously been unhealthy physically or mentally, remember that doesn’t have to be who you are forever. We are always growing, always changing. It’s okay to let go of who you once were to start becoming the person you are supposed to be
