Feb 15, 2023| Quote Of The Day: Special Guest :: Update

Welcome back my lovely readers! As you well know tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I’ll be heading north for a rendezvous with family and friends. As I’m sure most of us will be busy this holiday weekend, I wanted do a special list of quotes before Thanksgiving. That’s why I had abducted Maggie from The Expressive Life blog for a list of quotes she finds essential to life. Although, The Expressive Life Blog is no longer with us, you can still enjoy!

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!

“Make your life a masterpiece; imagine no limitations on what you can be, have or do.”

– Brian Tracy

Maggie: This is such a great one for blogging, as well as the rest of life! We often hold ourselves back and limit our creativity without even knowing it because we’re so used to only acting inside our comfort zone. Taking leaps of faith, however, is one of the most rewarding things we can do. Trying something new, working really hard on something we’re passionate about, and just overall setting out to be the most epic version of ourselves is what makes life fruitful and exciting!

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

– Walt Disney

Maggie: Oftentimes, the farthest people ever get in achieving their biggest dreams is merely TALKING about them. Put action behind your words! Take small steps every day that get you closer and closer to what you dream of. Find tiny ways to implement positive change and goal-reaching habits in your daily life. Begin with talking about your dreams, and then chase after them! 😀 ❤

“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.”

– Winston Churchill

Maggie: How true is this?? The way we perceive the things we go through in life totally depends on our mindset and what we’re willing to learn. By practicing optimism, we give ourselves the chance to really learn, grow, move on, and become the best versions of ourselves.

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.”

– Will Rogers

Maggie: I love this advice! I’ve found in my own experience that the only way to benefit from looking back is by applying what you’ve learned through what you’ve gone through, and then from there, continuing to take steps forward. It’s easy to fall into the downward cycle of looking back and regretting time lost, goals not achieved, mistakes made… don’t get caught up in that! Replace negative thought patterns with how you can make the positive change you want to see in your life today. Dream big, and then break those dreams down into tiny, achievable goals.

“You learn more from failure than from success. Don’t let it stop you. Failure builds character.”

– Unknown

Maggie: Ooh this is a great one, too! (That’s why I chose it haha) It’s not fun or desirable to admit, but the main reason why we grow in life is because of the hard stuff we go through. It feels awesome to succeed, but growth primarily occurs through hardship. Don’t shut yourself off to pain; allow yourself to feel it, learn a lesson (or many!) through it, and move on. Share your story with others and let them know that if you could come out the other side of that darkness, they can, too.
