So instead of creating a list with a bunch of quotes, which I actually will if I don’t control myself because I have so many favorite quotes, I have decided to share with you only a few that really inspires me for this year. I will also be sharing with you why I picked them.
Albert Einstein once said, “Strive not to be a success, but rather of value” and oh my did this stick in my head for this year! You see the time and place where I find myself in life now, it can be so easy to fall in the mindset of being successful. Now yes I do want to be successful but I have come to the conclusion that being of value, whether it is in someone’s time of need or in your work space or just in life already enables you to be more successful. I mean how can you be a success in the long term if you are not of value anyways? If we focus more on people and relationships success will follow… In this point in my life I am still building a career for myself and personally I have many interests and also many jobs so I can very easily feel like I’m getting nowhere, but I have found that in my head I am constantly reminded of this quote going into this year.
This next quote seems to have an unknown author, but regardless this one is so incredibly true and inspiring every time I want to do something and I really just don’t feel capable of it… “one day or day one, you decide.” I mean how straight forward and true is that! Whenever you feel like doing something especially something for your life, career etc. please keep this quote in mind because I know even in my life I find myself always speaking of a dream of mine as “one day when…” and actually that one day will never came if we don’t start now… So no more one days and more day ones, unless it’s something you really need more time for…
And lastly, like I have said I have so many quotes I love but I really wanted to narrow it down, “if it costs you your peace, it’s too expensive” – unknown. This is so relevant in all the aspects of our lives and I think it’s important to keep this one in mind. Life is so short and I have learned that we really don’t need toxic people and toxic situations in our lives, it’s best avoiding it where possible. And if you find yourself in a situation where it is unavoidable, please pray to gain the strength to get through it!
And that my lovelies is where I leave you, remember so much can happen in a year so don’t ever give up!
