Life tends to throw you curve balls sometimes but, it’s up to you how you let it affect you… Ever since I was a little girl my mom told me anything was possible, if I really wanted it. I always found myself very lucky in my life. I always had a great job, loving friends, supportive family, a roof over my head, food…. the list goes on! I’ve never once taken any of those things for granted but sometimes (because I am human) I get a little discouraged when things don’t go my way or if there is a bump in the road. Mostly because whenever I want something I don’t stop till I have it in my hands, right in front of my face!
Through the years my dreams and wants have become much larger than when I was in college or high school. They are much different now… They are bigger! Even though I do get discouraged, I know deep down inside I would never give up because something is too difficult or because I am not getting the results I want. So every once in awhile when I am feeling down, when want to crawl in a hole and throw all my hard work away; I go back to reading these inspirational quotes. These always give me the pat on the back and the strength to keep going along with my mom. Momma didn’t raise any quitter.(:
I’m so hard on myself and I am always working to better myself every day.
Another huge part of my life and the main source of motivation is God, I couldn’t have possibly gotten through half the downfalls and detours that have presented itself without him. one of, my favorite verses from the bible is, “I have made you. I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” Isaiah 45:4. I always have faith to know that things will work themselves out if you just believe.
With that being said here are a few of my favorite quotes that always keep me going… I hope they will do the same for you!
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”
“Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.”
-Ralph Waldo Emmerson
” Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
“Show up in every single moment like you’re meant to be there.”
“Anything’s possible if you’ve got nerve.”
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”
“If you get tired to learn to rest not to quit.”
“New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.”
