I like this a lot. Go out there and decide how well you’re going to live your life.
A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.
I’m not sure where this quote came from but I think it’s stunning. In today’s world with social media I think we’re all guilty of looking through our feed and thinking man, they really have it all together or I wish I had their life. Truth is we’re all here for different reasons and have been dealt our own hand of cards for a reason. We need to remind ourselves of this and bloom in our own way, on our own time. I’m especially guilty of this right now, as I see all my friends and classmates moving on with their post college lives and getting good jobs in cool new cities and I’m here writing this post, sitting on my parents’ couch on my day off from the same customer service retail job I’ve had since high school. So when I saw this quote, it really resonated with me. It’s not for lack of effort that I’m still in this position. It’s simply timing. My time will come (hopefully sooner rather than later) and when it does I will be ready and welcome it with open arms. Until then, I’ll be bustin ass trying to make big things happen on the career front and trying to find the beauty in what I have now. Just blooming.
These words are so simple but powerful. I’m working on it, are you?
Happy Wednesday! Just wanted to share with you all a little piece from Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go! I needed some inspiration and motivation this week. If you’ve never read it, go pick up a copy today. You won’t regret it.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
Elf is by far one of my favorite Christmas movies… it’s actually probably on my list of favorite movies in general. It’s arguably one of the most quotable, as well. Buddy is such a character, I think we should all share a little in his Christmas spirit! Dabble in these spirited and fun quotes from Elf that also happen to make great wall decor (all prints from etsy, click the links to visit original source and purchase)!
I could keep going but I’ll refrain. What are your favorite lines from Elf?!
