If you follow me on Instagram (emwinn_blog) you’ll know by now that I absolutely love a quote, so much so that I even say them in everyday life. You’ll be surprised how many times I say “living my best life” when something good happens to me. So, I decided it was only right of me to do a blog post on some of my favourites. If this is something that you enjoy and you’d want to know more of favourite quotes, then give this post some love and let me know in the comments.
“Everything Happens for a Reason.”
This is such a meaningful one for me because I honestly believe it so much! Everything does happen for a reason, everything from relationships, to dropping your ice cream on the floor. Everything has a meaning, a deeper meaning than what you think. The most amazing part about it is the fact that sometimes you just don’t know what it means until later on in life. Such as, relationships you may be with someone and break up. Why? Because you weren’t meant to be? But why were you together in the first place? Why did you “waste time in life”? Time is never wasted, because everything happens for a reason. That reason you’ll know one day, just not today. But there is always a reason such as they were a lesson that you need to learn, such as how to be treated or to teach you what you need in your final life partner. It will all make sense, it just may not make sense right now. But, one day it will.
“I cannot stress over things in which I cannot control.”
This is something I don’t say to myself enough, although I am getting better at it. On the other hand, my other half is very good at saying it to me when I am stressed, which I am very grateful for. If you are stressed about something. Stop. Think about it. What is it really that’s stressing you out? Oh right? Okay? And, what can I do about that to stop it stressing me out. Speak to someone? Get it sorted? Stop spending money, if it’s money problems? But, what about when there is nothing that can be done about it? Stop stressing about it. I cannot stress over things I cannot control, it’s someone else’s problem then, not mine? Or if you have to wait until 9am until the shop opens to get the problem resolved, wait. You cannot open a shop that is closed. If I cannot control the situation that is stressing me out, then I will not waste my energy on it.
“You didn’t come this far to only make it this far.”
Just stop for one second and think about how much you have already been through in your life, I can guarantee that you have been through a lot and it would have made you so much stronger. Think about how much you’ve already gone through to get where you are today, so why go though all of it to only get to where you are? Push yourself. See how far you can go. See how much you can achieve. Don’t regret something in your life because you were afraid of what might happen. Think about when you’re 80 years old, sat in your arm chair thinking “oh I wish I’d tried that” or “I wish I wasn’t so scared to have done that”. No flip it, imagine sitting there telling your grandchildren how much you achieved because you wasn’t afraid to step outside of your comfort zone! Take on every challenge. Chase every dream. You didn’t come this far, to only come this far. See how far you can go!
