“Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it.” – Charles R. Swindoll
This has got to be one of my favorite quotes because at times when you hear it, it can be a real eye opener, and a push to change your mind-set on things.
There’s going to be all sorts of things that happen to you in your lifetime. And that’s not exactly what matters. What’s important to ask yourself when those tough things come up is, am I going to let this make me or break me? We are in control of how or even if things progress in our lives. If we decide to let a situation crush us, you bet it will! But if we decide to keep pushing forward through it, we’ll find ourselves on the other side of it, happy that we kept moving! You choose your reactions. Once you’re truly aware of that, you can have SO much more peace in your life, I promise you that. I’m talking from experience here!
So lift up your head beautiful! Take the reigns and let’s keep moving!
“You will never win if you never begin.” -Helen Rowland
Ahh this quote is awesome! See, we can all easily dream of doing so many great things! We have passions that we SO want to pursue. And it all sounds great in our heads or when we’re talking to other people about them, but then when it comes time to put in the hard, sometimes tedious work that comes along with just about anything worth pursuing, we may tend to procrastinate JUST a bit. But something that has helped me as a big time procrastinator is to take baby steps to accomplish my main goals. AND, work on accomplishing smaller goals in the meantime while keeping your biggest one in your mind. I know it can be challenging because we want what we want and we want it now! (At least that’s how I tend to think 🙄 Lol) But doing the dirty work and taking those little steps will bring you that much closer each day and eventually you’ll find yourself saying “wow, I really did it!”.
