If you are anything like me, you run to Pinterest when you are feeling down (or hungry) and need some motivation. Between the amount of cute animal photos, delicious food pictures and inspirational quotes; it's safe to say Pinterest is my happy place.
Being a leader, entrepreneur, work in progress; can be tough. Many mornings I wake up stressed. But when you are building the life you want, the stress you feel, is worth it. Because let's be honest, nothing amazing in life comes easily. You have to work for it. Even when it is hard.
I am beginning to learn that everything in my life is happening when and how it should. God has a plan for me. And I believe in that plan. But I would be lying if I said I didn't need a little inspiration every now and again. I have always been that kind of person that finds quotes and sayings helpful, when I am going through something.
The other morning I woke up feeling stressed and sad. Discouraged that I wasn't where I wanted to be yet. So I decided to start that morning off with some inspirational quotes. I picked out ten that resonated with me, and repeated them over and over. And to my surprise, it was just the push I needed, to help change and set my attitude for the rest of the day.
Here are some of my favorites I read every morning now when I wake up.
1] The best part about life? Every morning you have a new opportunity to become a happier version of yourself.
2] Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most. -Abe Lincoln
3] We don't grow when things are easy. We grow when we face challenges.
4] Fall in love with the process of becoming the very best version of yourself.
5] Brave girl, promise me you will not shrink yourself in order to make others feel comfortable.
6] A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink. - Gina Carey
7] You don't have to be perfect to be amazing.
8] You have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.
9] You only fail when you stop trying.
10] We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.
