Something a little different today.
If you have been following this series (all previous posts linked below) you will have noted that I take inspirational words/typography from Pinterest and we have a little chat about how we can incorporate it into our own lives.
Well this week, rather than using the a pin already found, I decided to make my own. I would like to encourage you to pin it on whatever board you see fit (if you like it of course) and then we can all add to the world of inspirational words! Yay! I've made two versions so please pin the one you like best. I wonder which one will win?
Please pin whichever quote looks most appealing to you.
So this is a quote that I think my Dad told me when I was about 9 and struggling with my school work and it's stuck with me for nearly 20 years.
The idea is that if you carry on doing all the same things, nothing will ever change. It pushes you to try something a little different and reap the rewards of a new outcome. It's really, really easy to get stuck in a rut (believe me, I'm Mrs Rut!) and begrudge things in your life, but more often than not, it's something we can change ourselves. For example, whilst I was in Orlando, every single time I had to put swimwear on I would think, 'Urgh my thighs are so jibbly'. It's all very well thinking they're jibbly but then if I carry on just sitting about thinking it, they're not going to change. I need to do something different, like a smidge of exercise here and there!
Think about something you're not happy about in your life today. Now think about something you could do differently to help it. I'm not suggesting playing the lottery in the hope of paying off all your debts, but achievable things, like swapping a fizzy drink at lunch time for a bottle of water, or swapping watching Hollyoaks (who watches it anyway?!?!) for 30 minutes of extra homework.
Is there anything you can do differently? Will you be pinning either of these quotes?
