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!)
Today’s inspiration board is about working hard to achieve success, whatever you see success as. No matter what you are working toward in life, I think it’s important to have your mind in the right place. For me, working in the social media field, I get overwhelmed really easily. When I see other that are largely ahead of me makes me question what I am doing and discouraged at times. This year I am focusing on silencing the noise of others and working hard no matter what others are doing. Another aspect of success is believing in yourself. If you can get the confidence in yourself, you can do and achieve great things. This morning I sat down at my desk and attempted to tackle my emails. I looked at every unanswered message and told myself I’d get back to it later. I always need the reminder that now is always the best time, not in 30 minutes or tomorrow. Now. Man, I am the best procrastinator. I want to challenge both myself, and all of you, to finish things. I made the simple task of replying to emails look super daunting because of my mind set. Take each item on your list and follow through. There is nothing more satisfying than crossing everything on your list off at the end of the day. Am I right? So I hope we can all work together to get focused and work towards our goals. Take everything one day at time and always remember how far you have come!
Here are a few quotes I have been drawn to lately. It’s funny because whenever I post these, there seems to be a common theme. I think my upcoming move has made me a little more adventurous and inspired. I am looking forward to the unknown and the unpredictability of our trip. I have always been a very practical and realistic person. I am much more of a planner then a dreamer. However, I am married to someone who inspires me to think less and act more. Sometimes it can be very liberating to live with your heart instead of your head at times. Granted, this is not easy for me. I feel much more safe and stable when I know what to expect. But I am trying my best to enjoy each and every moment and worry less about the future and instead be more in the present. I hope each and every one of you can try to do the same this week. Be in the now, because that is what matters.
