“You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.” – Unknown
I love this quote for two reasons:
- I love storytelling, I frequently think of my life as a novel in the works
- It reveals a hidden truth about life so poignantly. There are times when we have to let go of the past in order to succeed in the present.
“The only limits in life are the ones you make.” – Unknown
This quote is what I’m talking about when I say “live boundless.” You’re the only person in the entire world that can tell you what you can or can’t do and be correct. You. Alone. Peer pressure is something you choose to conform to, social norms are something you choose to honor, and the impossible is something you create. Why not choose to come as you are and do what makes your soul happy? You’re your own worst enemy and your best friend.

Eventually, you’ll find one that does work. But if you never sketch out your steps to begin with…your end goal is just a pipe dream.
I hope you lovelies are feeling nice and motivated after all that! My nominees to further spread the inspiration are:
