Hey people! ?
I hope you all had a great weekend! My weekend was great. On Friday after school I went to take some pictures with my friend Vanesa for her work and ourselves. It was really really cold and grey, so sun please come through soon! ? Yesterday and today were pretty productive days, got a lot of stuff done – guess that kinda justifies that Fabian & I went a little overboard on our cheatday yesterday evening and went to eat brunch this morning ?
Anywaaay, today I wanted to introduce you to my new category Sunday Thoughts – every other Sunday I’ll blog about one topic or simply just things that are on my mind that day – hence “Sunday Thoughts” duuh. ?
Confession: I was about to create a Motivation Monday series but then I stopped and asked myself: wait a minute?! Why does it have to be Monday? Monday Motivation is nice but so common and why should we anyway first start out on a positive note on Monday when we can go to sleep with a positive vibe already on Sunday? ? *omg epiphany*
That said, today I wanted to show you guys some quotes that really inspire me. There is something so powerful about words, they can encourage you, comfort you or simply make you start thinking about something. I chose some of my favorite quotes to show you and explain to you why they are so powerful to me. You know the feeling of when you are watching a romantic movie scene, in which a guy talks about his girlfriend like she is the brightest shining light in his life and you sit there like: damn, she must be something special ? Watching scenes like that or reading quotes screams for self-reflection. They start a thought process in your mind, where you start thinking about your personality. It boosts the kind of self awareness you would normally not be exposed to in your everyday life, while scrolling through your Facebook feed, watching dog videos (even though, I see the entertainment, trust me I do ? ). But in the end, we all wanna be that special girl from the movie, so these quotes are just little reminders that can keep you on track of becoming her.
Inspirational Quotes #1:
This is by far my favorite inspirational quote. It shows how beautiful love can be when you give nothing but pure love. When you do something from the goodness of your heart without expecting something in return. Now that doesn’t mean that you are to put all your power and energy into one person and never get to expect anything in return. No, this is about helping people that you love without some hidden thought in the back of your head. Help because you want to help. ?
Inspirational Quotes #2:
This one also has a special place in my heart. The day you realize how much potential you have and what you can do with it is the day you have truly discovered your purpose in life. Go chase your dreams because they won’t come looking for you ?
Inspirational Quotes #3:
I think sometimes it’s hard for us to remember that the people that we admire are also just normal people – but people that have worked hard to become what they are today. We have to remember that we are learning throughout our whole life, enjoy the journey of getting to know yourself. Cherish it. ?
Inspirational Quotes #4:
Being strong doesn’t mean you have to be hard and not show any feelings at all. Strong has a very different definition in my mind. For me, a strong person is somebody that is nothing but completely aware of their feelings and is not afraid to show them. A person that knows how to deal with their own vulnerabilities but also with the ones of others and helps get on top of that. A truly compassionate personality, not letting themselves be undermined by overpowering of negativity. Strive to be that person ?
Inspirational Quotes #5:
Be strong and embrace the future my dears ?
So that was it for today. As you obviously can tell, all of these quotes are addressing a SHE. Yes, it was international women’s day on Wednesday, but that’s not the reason I chose these quotes. I like to read these she poems to remind myself of what person I want to be and because I can identify myself best with them. Reading about a SHE gives this illusion of you in the third-person, and makes you step out of your own skin if that makes sense? ? Also, I’m pretty proud of the designs I came up with. I took the original quotes I have saved on my Pinterest and Instagram account and designed new layouts for them ?.
Anyway, I hope you go to sleep with positive thoughts tonight and start out your week freshly! Remember you choose what person you want to be ?
Blog to you soon!
