“Remember who you are, it’s easy to forget at times but nothing is more important” – Mufasa. One of my favorite quotes from my all-time favorite childhood movie, The Lion King! I recently seen the new one and just realizing how many inspiring life messages are throughout the entire movie! This quote could not ever be more true!
“Just because I cannot see it doesn’t mean I can’t believe it,” Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s Halloween today so I felt this was fitting!
“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live,” Norman Cousins. Deep, am I right?!
“You only fail when you stop trying.” I freaking love this quote. There are many times where I have cried telling myself to give up on a goal, questioning what’s the point but then have to remind myself that things are hard and not give up on the things you want so badly. The only time I ever feel like a true failure is when I do give up.
“When it hurts observe. Life is trying to teach you something.” When I feel this way, I try to sit back and take in everything going on. I question why am I feeling this way, what is going on around me, and what can I learn from this. I feel the most painful and hard times in life define us, so observe more often.
When it feels scary to jump that’s exactly when you jump. Otherwise, you end up staying in the same place your whole life and that I can’t do,” Abel Morales. Listening to the 5-Second-Rule by Mel Robbins helped me with this ideal. Whenever I start to feel doubt or talk myself out of something I count down 5-4-3-2-1 and just do it! Everything we want is on the other side of fear right… so just JUMP, live life to the fullest! It’s a forever daily practice.
The 3 C’s in life: Choice, Chance, and Change. You must make the choice, to take the chance, if you want anything in life to change. LOVED this when I came across it. We are the only ones that can change our lives and we can do that by the choices we make. Let’s get out there and take some chances!
“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it,” Rafiki from The Lion King. I feel there is something to be learned from everything we do, whether it’s good or bad.
“Making a big life change is pretty scary. But know what’s even scarier REGRET.” Don’t you want to be able to say on your death bed you have ZERO REGRETS in life?! I ask myself every time I start to talk myself out of something that I want to do, “will I regret NOT doing this.” I would rather face my fears than wonder what if.
“Life will only change when you become more committed to your dreams then you are to your comfort zone.” This is a daily practice for myself. We have to become comfortable with the uncomfortable.
“It’s okay to be scared. Being scared means you’re about to do something really really brave.” In the photo above I survived one of the most terrifying things. Do you see that faint zig-zag line with a tiny car on it? We just came from there. One of my biggest fears is falling off a cliff in a car. I never felt so much fear at this moment. Ron talked me through it. I was hyperventilating imagining us rolling off the cliff to sudden death! I wanted to get out and walk… but I stayed… and afterward I got out of the car, jumped up and down, and said WOW that was incredible. I was so proud of myself and so glad I did it because this place was BEAUTIFUL! Be brave often, you will be proud that you did!
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions,” Albert Einstein. I feel having an imagination is the #1 most important tools to creating a life you want to live. Believing in something whole heartily, imagining as if it’s already happened, playing it over and over in your mind so vividly like a movie … it truly works! This helps when I start to feel like giving up, getting nowhere or lose track of my WHY. I close my eyes and imagine my dream life. It helps keep me going when things get hard!
“Happiness is being confidently weird.” TRUTH guys! Instagram has given me so much more confidence in myself. Setting up tripods, doing funny poses while many people stair at you is WEIRD! I can feel their glaring eyes judging and just by looking at them but you know what… SCREWWWW them! I have SO much fun frolicking like a kid, looking incredibly weird. Being WEIRD is much more fun than sitting back taking life way to darn serious! Get confidently WEIRD people and don’t let other people’s opinions stop you from it! I mean really…what’s the WORST that can happen?
“Fear is what stops you, courage is what keeps you going.” We just turned the corner climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, I thought we were closer to our base camp, but we were far from it! I was so exhausted with little sleep, puking my brains out the day before… We had to hike down and then up over that crater wall in the photo above. Fear started to set in telling myself I couldn’t make it. I had to dig deep and have the courage to keep going. Telling myself I CAN do this. I did and I am so dang proud! Don’t let fear rule your life!
“Don’t feel guilty for doing what’s best for you.” It’s easy to spend all your energy and free time working towards other people’s goals. Sometimes, you just have to say NO and its 100% okay. Don’t ever feel guilty for saying no. If they don’t understand then they are not meant to be in your life. Do what is best for YOU!
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable. Could you imagine life if you asked yourself these three simple terms before you make a major decision?
There is SO much wasted time and energy making up excuses for the things that are changeable, crying about the unchangeable and sticking around things that no longer serve us. Let’s all work on this one together and see where life takes us!
