Do It Anyways

There are times when it feel as though the entire world is pushing against you. Like everyone is telling you no, or that you can’t do something. As though you’re incapable. But I’m here to tell you that you ARE. You ARE capable. You CAN do it.

You can do whatever you set your mind to, and you should. Especially if it seems as though the world just keeps kicking you down. If you are trying to go after a dream, a passion, a life goal, and those bumps in the road may make it hard and may make you feel like you can’t reach your goal. But you’ve just got to keep pushing forward.

Go The Distance

Another rough day, and yet 6 more to go. You ever feel like you’re just running in a circle to nowhere? Maybe like you’re on a hamster wheel? Spinning. Spinning. Constantly running forward and yet…never actual moving forward? For some odd reason I’ve been feeling that feeling more and more recently, and it’s quite unsettling. 

I once had a clear dream – or a vision, perhaps – of what I wanted in life. I knew exactly what I wanted to do as a career, where I wanted to be in 5 years. Yet now I come across a point in my life where things are no longer quite as crystal clear as they once were. I feel, well, lost. It’s one thing to graduate out of high school, maybe even get through some of college, without really knowing what you wanted to get out of life. It’s something entirely different to have known what you wanted to do with your life since the age of 15 and to suddenly be unsure of yourself and your plans. 

Which is why I found myself thinking of one of my favorite Disney cartoons (it’s funny how so many of my QOTW’s are inspired by films from my childhood, more often than not Disney films). I was thinking about Hercules. Obviously the cartoon is a glorified version of the original story. But in the Disney re-telling Hercules grows up being unsure of where he belongs, feeling as though he belongs elsewhere. 


This quote today is a reminder that every mile you take will be worth your while. You can go the distance it will take to find your place in the world, to find your calling. If you try hard and actually search for yourself, you will find who you really are. And that’s exactly what I needed this week. 

A reminder that somehow, I will be strong enough to get through this. Because I CAN go the distance. And I will. 

You Matter

October is finally here, ya’ll! Words cannot even come close to how ridiculously excited I am for this month! Somehow it has become one of my absolute favorite months of the year, so much so that I’ve already magically collected THREE new Halloween-y mugs…I might also have an obsession for mugs. That being said, let’s jump into more important things.

2017 You Matter

As much as we all get excited and happy about Fall/October and all of the things they bring to us (pumpkin-spice-everything, pumpkins, colorful leaves, candy, etc) we also need to remember that people are important too. And not just once a year, but the entire year. Yup, you heard me. You matter too, and a LOT. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. Because you honestly just don’t need that negativity in your life darling.

Life Is Tough, But So Are You

Hello Monday. I didn’t miss you. And I don’t think anyone else did, either.

There’s just something about Mondays that make you just want to go “ugh” and burrow deeper into your blankets the moment when your alarm goes off. Even if you LOVE your job, Monday…well it’s just tough. Which brings me to this week’s quote –

2017 life is tough

It’s important to remember that as humans, we often underestimate ourselves. It’s a very common thing, even for the boldest and most confident people at times. There are just things that make us doubt ourselves and our abilities.

But even more important, I believe, is that we are all stronger than we think. So when things get rough, we start doubting ourselves, and that negativity does absolutely nothing to help us. Period. All it does is give an opening to all of the other negative thoughts you’ve ever had of yourself. They’ll rear their ugly, ugly heads and make you feel even worse. You beat yourself up on the inside and before you know it you’re depressed. Worrying, stressing, beating yourself up…none of it helps solve the issue at hand, no matter what it is. There’s no getting around it.

So just remember something for me eh?

No matter what life brings, yes it can be tough and cruel and harsh. But you, you my friend are tough as well. You can make it through this. You will make it through this. I promise you.
