In today's post I am going to be sharing some of my favourite quotes.
“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
This quote reminds me that even when I am having the hardest day or week imaginable that I am the only one that can change my mood, and that is all I need.
"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies ,but just as much to stand up to our friends."
This quote is amazing in a way that it tells just how hard it is to stand up to your friends. For example peer pressure can be very strong for people and this quote is a good way to explain that.
"Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it." Sai Baba
I can't explain why this quote is my favorite because I am not really sure. I seen this quote one day while on the internet and it has always just stuck with me.
"A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows that she has none."
"We should all start to live before we get too old."
I am going to group these two quotes together because these two are just a few of the Marilyn Monroe quotes that I absolutely love. I love that the first quote reminds that girls can do whatever guys can do and that we shouldn't limit ourselves. I love that while simply being known as "blonde bombshell" she was actually very smart and had many things to say.
“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”
I absolutely love this quote from Anthony Bourdain, this is the reason that I want to travel so badly and why I simply love the idea of travel.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Again another quote that encapsulates the reason that I want to travel so completely.
“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends”
I love Maya Angelou, she is very articulate and her quotes represent that. I love this quote because it is not just a happy quote it has both sides of what are often peoples thoughts on travel and exploring other cultures.
“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign”
Robert Louis Stevenson
This quote is basically my view on travel. I don't believe in foreign lands, I am a foreign person and am just traveling. I won't push my culture on anyone while traveling because I want to experience something different.
"You are enough just as you are."
I love this quote from Meghan Markle because it is a reminder to myself that even though I want to change many things I am enough. I also love Meghan Markle which is why I tend to like what she says.
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory."
This is what I hope will happen as I get older. I will look back on moments and really see the value of what was going on. I hope that this will also include travel in the future.
Hope you enjoyed today's post.
See you next time :)
