monday motivation : a wineoir for thought

I’m kind of breaking my own rules by utilizing someone else’s quote here, but sometimes you just come across the right words at the right time, and there’s no use in trying to create your own mediocre version of the same concept when you can just pass along the OG.

My life is not all sunshine and rainbows. There’s a lot of confusion and hurt amidst the necessary growth that seep in through the cracks when you least want them there. The changes I’m experiencing right now have been met with shock, worry, judgment, joy and celebration. But they are my changes and I’m excited for them. It is my time to venture out and live this life that has been made available to me. And others may take it or leave it as they so choose…

but I will evolve.

And I will do so with positivity and optimism and strength. I will make the most of what I  can and fight for what I want. I will continue to try and become the best me that I can be. Because the stagnance of not taking chances or risks is more suffocating than the breath of fresh air you can grasp at the edge of a cliff you’ve just climbed. And once you’ve taken those steps, sometimes you do have to be the one to keep going the extra mile to maintain the relationships, the habits and the goals you once had. But if you do it right, you can truly have it all.

So that’s all.
