Favorite Quotes And What They Do For Me

17 Aug

If you’re ever in a rut or find yourself generally bored with life, I’d highly recommend to start collecting some inspirational quotes and writing them down. It’s very unlikely you’ll find a negative quote that will put you down, only ones that will uplift you with positivity! Lately I’ve just had a bad attitude and have been living on auto-pilot. I knew in the back of my mind I needed to somehow change it, but the bad mood keeps you sitting there thinking something wonderful has to come along and knock you off you’re feet. That’s a cheap way out, you can do it yourself. I took my fate in my own hands and starting surrounding myself with positivity, and my attitude immediately felt lighter and cheerier! Here’s some quotes I took to heart.

“All things are perfect exactly as they are.” -Buddha

I often wonder and worry about my relationship and why it’s not perfect, why my inner thighs touch and why I’m not making the money I want to be making. The better question is, WHY ask questions!? I am a perfect, whole being, and I know that because I was made that way, we all were. My life is a cultivation of everything me, so it’s already exactly as it should be! This is where acceptance and appreciation come in 🙂

“The art of life is a constant readjustment of our surroundings.” -Kakuzo Okakura

How beautiful it is that we can cultivate the life we want. If something is out of order or putting us out of balance and harmony it is a wonderful thing how our minds and spirit detect it and try to guide us back in sync. It’s true! We naturally seek to keep in balance and our body fights for this equilibrium. Human beings are amazing, self-sufficient machines and you already have all the tools you need to put your life where you want it!

“Be patient with all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves.” -Rainer Maria Rilke

My body and mind often creates a lot of anxiety and tension when something is up in the air in my life and I don’t know what to do next. That’s a magical place to be in! Learn to love the uncertainty, because you have your whole life to “know” how it worked out and the time that you didn’t will be fond memories!

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born” -Anais Nin

I feel really fulfilled when I’ve made a connection with a friend or new person, and it puts a smile on my face for the rest of the day. I often realize when alone that there are new things about myself that I’ve discovered and an exciting new child is awoken in me again, ready to explore it. After an extended time with not much social contact I start to feel like something is missing and crave interaction, I want to new discoveries! It’s important to talk with all sorts of people in all walks of life, ones that can expose you to things you’ve never considered. It’s essential for your growth as a human!

I’d really love to read any quotes you hang on to that are inspirational, please write them in the comment section! Open a new world for me! We all need a little inspiration and motivation to keep that spark alive in us 🙂
