Quote of the Month | January

As we all know January is the time for new beginnings. So many of us bloggers have shared posts about all the things we want to achieve in 2017 and when it comes down to it all we want is to be a better, happier person. With a new year comes a clean slate and we tend to feel like we can let go of what has been holding us back and start over in 2017. I am all for this idea. I love the new year for exactly that reason and I myself have shared my 5 hopes for 2017 earlier this month! However, I was scrolling through Pinterest quotes the other day (who else loves them?!) and I came across the quote
"Nothing in nature blooms all year, so don't expect yourself to"
This really stood out for me and made me realise that no matter how much I try to make this year amazing for myself there will no doubt be lows. So many of us have great intentions at the beginning of the year and a lot of us start off really well. However, if you're anything like me you may find yourself slacking a bit in February or March and not being as happy as you promised you would make yourself.

This quote made me realise how important it is to not hold too high expectations of ourselves. At the end of the day we are only human. We're not perfect and none of us are going to spend every day of the next year working on our goals, being productive and feeling happy. It just isn't going to happen. There will be days this year when you will probably feel totally lost and you know what? That's fine, it's the nature of life.

So the next time your kicking yourself because you haven't worked out in a week, you've pigged out on dominos after going months without or you have lost your blogging mojo despite promising yourself you'd 'kill it' this year, just remember this quote and don't be too hard on yourself
