Okay, I’m totally stealing my new life mantra from the GirlBoss series on Netflix. It was literally one line from one episode but it really stuck out for me. And who doesn’t love a good old rags to riches story? Fyi the book trumps the series hands down – thank me later.
Why you gotta switch the sitch
It’s pretty self explanatory, but just in case you need more info here goes. Switch the sitch is a lil self reminder that you are in control. You have the power to switch up the situation you are in and therefore have better control of your happiness, productivity…just about everything! I talked about it in my post about my career situation and honestly, some of the best advice I could give is that nothing is worth scarificing your happiness for.
Anytime I’m feeling fed up or having a lil pity party I try to reinforce the switch the sitch mantra. It can be easy to become caught up in your own situation, when if you take a step back for a moment you can actively re-focus your energy in to a more postive situation.
Let me know if this works for you and what other life matras you live by! xx
I ♡ the above poem Wild Ocean and feel as though it perfectly sums up my life recently.
Here’s the thing.
I’m 26 and I’m kinda (massively) in limbo at the moment with everything in my life. Seriously. Relationships, my career…I feel like I should have it all figured out but then again should I?
Much like the tide, things in life tend to come and go so here’s the million $ question. Do you take the road well-known and pursue what you know is ahead, or do you take a risk in life and hope that it brings you happiness in what you’re searching for? Do you settle for what you’re ‘supposed’ to or do you take bliss in saying no to what is expected?
From experience, the freedom of taking a risk pays off in terms of happiness a million times over. Sure, there will be moments of WTH and where is my life going, but there is also untold amounts of exploration and motivation that can come with uncertainity.
Sometimes we all need those moments in life where we can be indecisive. We don’t need all the answers right now or to need to know what we want. Great adventures can lie in the pursuit of what we really desire, and I don’t know about you but I’m pretty excited about what may or may not lie ahead.
Sweeeeet 16th GlowBites post! The piccie I’ve used above is actually one that one of my best friends took on her travels in Aus and I can’t believe how amazing and kinda surreal it looks! – – Thought I would use it to try and get in the mood for summer (ages away I know!) and also because this weeks GlowBites is based on positivity and mindfulness and I feel like this pic radiates positiveness and serenity!
So I was inspired to pull together a few quotes that I have loved recently, and this post was kinda inspired too by posts from Annie at Blawnde and Kaitlyn at WesternWild – and who doesn’t love a motivational/inspirational quote…that’s what Instagram and Pinterest are there for – that and selfies!!
>> Sorry that the quote on the right of the middle row isn’t so clear…it reads,
“How do you know when it’s over?”
“Maybe when you feel more in love with memories than the person standing in front of you.”
It’s hard to pick a fave out of all of these because they’re all so meaningful in different ways! Personally I’m a bit of a worrier and an over-thinker so it’s good to remember to let go and that whatever the worry it won’t change things! And that whatever the circumstance, you deserve to be happy and treated the way you want to be – something I think is really important. I esp love the very middle photo – as an extra hour spent awake creates the possibility for you to do anything…you can do so much with your time if you learn how to, and we all get tired and caught up in things but it is seriously an hour of your life that can be spent more wisely and with intention.
But this one is my absolute favourite – basic message >> don’t try to justify your own happiness by filling it with other people who may not meant to be, don’t look for your own happiness in others. Once you open yourself up to creating your own happiness, you attract the right ones in to your life which help complete it [life]
So on that big-ass philosophical note I will end it there for this weeks GlowBites! What are your favourite quotes, I would love to know!
