Quote of the Week #1
I really enjoy the 'Motivational Monday' series I see a lot of bloggers involved in so I decided to start a new series called 'Quote of the Week' this way, I'm not restricted to Mondays but can upload any day of the week I feel like I need a little extra push.
I will share different quotes that I find helpful and inspiring, quotes that I try to, or feel that I need to incorporate into my life. I intend to keep the quotes relevant to my thoughts and feelings of that week.
I plan on finding them from different websites such as Pinterest and make unique images especially for my blog as I think creating the images will be the best part!
I hope this series will help spread some positivity and makes us all feel that little bit more hopeful and happy, one can never be too happy :)
So onto this weeks quote....
Yesterday I wasn't feeling so good, I'm not sure why. It was just one of those days where you sit round the house in your sweats, not having the motivation to do anything constructive, now or ever. When you just want to stay indoors for the rest of your life, cuddle up in your bedroom, play meaningless games on your phone and escape from reality and all its challenges. When you recognize that you're twenty, you're now an adult and you feel like it's only going to keep getting harder and harder, and will be a constant uphill battle. Its safe to say I was feeling pretty pessimistic about the future and doubting whether I have what it takes to deal with the responsibilities of adulthood. The challenges I face in the not so distant future like passing my driving test, getting my degree, getting a job, moving out, possibly having to emigrate, starting my career, and essentially becoming an adult all seemed so overwhelming.
But then I seen this quote and noticed how much it related to me, how much I should adhere to it. I realised that I was believing that my whole life was going to be 'bad' or difficult and that I would never have the motivation or determination to achieve anything I needed to achieve. But I have to realise, that just because everything seems difficult and overwhelming and down right awful today, doesn't mean it actually will be, it just means that today is a lazy, pessimistic and 'bad' day. It means that today I am in a bad mood, with a bad outlook on everything, but that does not go to say that these 'struggles' I face really will be as scary and huge as I see them, it does not mean that I will go through my whole life dispirited or that my adult life is going to be nothing but a constant battle. On days like this, I have to open my eyes and realise that there will be good days again, there will be great days again, there will be days when I am motivated and inspired to work to achieve my goals, and to grow into the person I want to be. Yes there will be many obstacles along the way but that does not suggest that my adult life will be any less joyful than my childhood. With years comes knowledge, courage and experience that will get me through those rough seas.
