Wednesday motivation

I’m just an hour into my day, the day that begins when everyone has left for work, college, school and finishes when I have to do the school pick up, and so far I have learnt that one could easily consume an entire day reading motivational quotes on Pinterest!

I’m not really a fan of blog posts that simply present other people’s words, however insightful, so it’s not something I tend to do without my own commentary alongside.

Often we can become obsessed over living up to other people’s ideals, or those of society.  For me it’s not so much that people make me feel that I’m not good enough, it’s a feeling that comes from inside.

It’s overuse of should.  It’s perfectionism.

Accept yourself as good enough.

good enough

When faced with a barrage of negative experiences or self-doubt, it comes down to determination. The will to keep going at the point
where it’s easier to give up.


The best line of any Star Wars film comes from Obi-Wan Kenobi

If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.”

That’s the spirit!

Often life strikes a blow that knocks us off our feet, but with determination we can totally rock the come back.
fireNo matter what has happened in the past; mistakes you’ve made, friendships or relationships that turned sour, bad experiences, the future is your chance to move on from all of this.

Change the narrative, write your own story.


Believe in yourself, believe in change and success, believe that you control your destiny.


Who doesn’t want a beautiful life?

It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it’s on us to find beauty in the ordinary, to be grateful for the rain that nourishes the earth and appreciate the rainbows.

    Great quote picks and I think your commentary is spot on, Karen. You said it even better with this bit : “Often life strikes a blow that knocks us off our feet, but with determination we can totally rock the come back.” – The come back can be so much stronger after we’re knocked down. xx
