Welcome back, readers!
The past few weeks have been, for lack of a better word, interesting. I have been fighting a reoccurring sickness that I can’t seem to put my finger on, and my to-do list continues to get longer. I have started to feel rather overwhelmed, but I have found a comfort in different quotes I have either heard or seen in the past week. As May goes on, many of you will encounter either finals, moving stresses, graduation stresses, so on and so forth. Whatever you are dealing with this next week, I want to share seven quotes, one for each day, to inspire thought and possibly help some of you through this next week. Enjoy!
I thought this quote would be a great way to start off the week. I believe in extending kindness to those who may need it. A simple smile or small compliment can brighten the rest of someone’s day. Be thinking about a way you can extend kindness to those around you this week.
I am a firm believer in being present in the moment. In our age, many people are on their phones and forgetting to really be part of the world around them. So this week I challenge you to put down the technology, and really be present in every moment you can. That text message can wait, the moment will always pass.
Take the extra time this week to wear something that truly makes you feel good inside, whatever that is to you, as well as the time to learn something new about a subject you enjoy, or about someone different than you.
There has always been a special place in my heart for the Dr. Seuss, and this quote is one of my all-time favorites. It applies to almost every part of life and I like to read it when I feel discouraged or left-out.
Today, I want you to think about how often you feel overshadowed by someone else and why. After that, I want to let you know that it is 100% okay to not be the center of attention, but to never let someone put you down or slow your shine.
Throughout the week if you mess up or feel low, just read this little ray of sunshine and tell yourself that it’s okay to fall sometimes, but it’s not okay to give up.
Last, but not least, think over everything you’ve done this past week and decide if you are where you want to be at this point in your life. If so, good for you! How can you keep your momentum? If not, don’t be discouraged. There’s always time to make a change, you just have to figure out how.
These are just a few of the quotes that have helped me in the past and that, I hope, can help you through the stress of the next week.
See you next time!
