Hi friends! So today I have another installment of Be Inspired. I love doing these every now and then to reflect on what is going on in my life at the moment. So today’s quotes, like always, have a common thread. I’m working on taking the initiative for many aspects of my life. Mostly work related. A lot of the time I put things off (I tend to bookmark lots of emails) instead of tackling them right of the bat.
I’m also working on developing myself more. I know that is incredibly vague and cliche. I think the whole YouTube and blogging world can get a bit overwhelming at times. You are constantly trying to keep up with everyone else. I want to try to focus on my brand and my content. Nobody is exactly like you, which is why you should take full advantage of that.
The last thing I am working on is seeing the good in people. It is so easy to pass a quick judgement. It’s much harder to let things go and look past what is bothering you. You are in control of how you feel. I think we often think that other things make us upset, frustrated or down. It’s how we respond which really is completely our decision. I know this is getting a bit deep, but it’s getting late and this is what happens! I hope you all find peace in yourselves this week. (I might squeeze in some nighttime yoga…namaste!)
This week has had it’s ups and downs. Today’s quotes are about quieting your heart, taking a deep breath, and realizing you are in control of your feelings. They also represent tough love and understanding we are not in control of it all sometimes. Kind of opposites I know. But that is how I have been feeling these past few weeks. Even though I have a tough front, I am a pretty sensitive person and little things get to me. I let things build and build until finally I’ll accidentally snag my sweater and that will set me off. I also am a person who has high standards. That applies to a lot of things. People, my work, my future. And when one thing doesn’t go exactly as planned, I let it get to me. This week I am going to work on appreciating things. Realizing that some things aren’t worth ruining our day. Some things aren’t in our control. But also knowing that when we do have the power, to use it to the best of our ability. Treat others with the kindness you want and work in the way that will make you proud at the end of the day.
