inspirational quotes

Every now and then, you read something and it gives you chills. The hairs on your arm stand straight up and tears just flow from your eyes. The more you read, the more you can’t stop and the more everything you knew before changes. That’s this post you’re about to read. It’s such a blend of weakness and strength and vulnerability all in one but the message is one of a warrior. Someone who never gives up! I’m honoured that she’s sharing her story on my platform – Even the strongest

So much of my life has been an emotional struggle. A struggle between what I wanted to do and what I thought I should do. I just didn’t think it was okay to be myself. To do what I wanted to do. Trying to be yourself isn’t the easiest road to travel even though it should be. I was so afraid of failing. I was so afraid of disappointing everyone around me. Something tells me that if you’re reading this, you know how it feels. You know how it feels to

Being yourself is a daily struggle, a daily battle we fight against ourselves, against those around us. We are surrounded by rules. How to live, how to be, what to do and when. We take lunch, when we are told we can and go home at an hour dictated to us by the rules. We follow these rules, the book of how to for life. We do because our parents before us did, because our children are expected to. But what if you don’t? What if you break the rules

I love quotes about happiness! Here are ten of my favourite! 1. “When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon 2. “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”  – Abraham Lincoln 3. “Nobody really cares

There are those dark days, we all have them. We think we’re incapable and not good enough. We don’t believe in ourselves, we don’t think that we have what it takes. Then, we put our heads down, put in the hours and get it done! Suddenly, we are incredible and we’ve done exactly what we needed to do! BOOM! We’re the freaking badass that we always knew we could be. It’s not always easy but you’ve got to believe in yourself! I wrote a post recently about that feeling you

Sometimes, everything about life is going perfectly well. You’re on top of the moon and buzzing with energy and then you’re not anymore. You’re overcome with guilt and worry and stress. You’re suddenly unsure of yourself and you have lost your ability to focus on everything that matters. My usual go-to in times like those is a nice cold glass of white wine. However, eight months into my pregnancy and I’ve learnt a few coping mechanisms that don’t involve plying myself with yummy alcoholic beverages. If deep breathing isn’t your thing, try

I recently wrote a post (this post) in which I asked a bunch of questions at the end. One of the questions I asked was; What has surprised you most about the way your life has turned out? and it got me thinking. Has my life turned out the way I thought it would? Career wise, the answer is definitely not. I expected to be a lawyer right about now. I expected to be fighting for Human Rights causes and I expected to be travelling the world doing it. I had

The world is a strange place. Sometimes everything feels impossible and you struggle to see the end of the tunnel. Other times, everything is going really well and you feel like you’re walking on clouds. It’s in those times, when something goes wrong and you think to yourself “oh fuck, everything about the world sucks” but it’s not the world that sucks. It’s just the situation. It’s just that one thing that’s happening right now that makes all the good stuff disappear into the background. You’ve got to be strong

Only you are in control of your destiny. “Your destiny is to fulfil those things upon which you focus most intently. So choose to keep your focus on that which is truly magnificent, beautiful, uplifting and joyful. Your life is always moving toward something.”  Ralph Marston Only you have the power to truly know your dreams and your desires. “Nothing much happens without a dream. For something really great to happen, it takes a really great dream.” Robert Greenleaf What are the things that motivate you? “Some people want it to happen, some
