Despite the misleading title, this is NOT going to be a post dedicated to the Hunger Games, but a collection of my favourite quotes that I have learnt to live by and used throughout my journey to become a better person!
This little gem has been my personal motto for as long as I can remember! A quote I will cherish forever, that will always remain a favourite of mine! There will be always be a time in your life, where insignificant events will creep up and get the better of you! But life's too short for moping around and dwelling on the past...there's no point having regrets because at one point you wanted it! Focus on your future, throw those middle fingers out to the world, hold your head up high and smile! A smile is a powerful weapon, a contagious infection, a warming glow at the end of a tunnel!
Sometimes life doesn't unfold how you want it to and you may face hurdles that are difficult to overcome, but you have to take the rough with the smooth! Life would be boring if every day was the same - perseverance and determination will allow you to cross that bridge and branch out to new opportunities. Don't suffer in silence, embrace those around you and treasure all the help you can get!
Throughout my journey in life, I have made new friends and watched old ones grow and slowly disappear! No amount of missing them can ever bring them back, but that's life! People come and go, but the ones that mind don't matter and the one's that matter don't mind! Cherish the people that care and support you, stay true to your principles and you'll be sure to live passionately, fully and well!
Last, but not least, this quote is an extremely personal one of mine....not only does it appear in one of my most loved novels, but as an ex-headteacher of mine once said: 'Life is not one direct route, there are so many pathways that you may stumble across along the way! Only YOU have the power to choose which ones you venture down and only you can control the journey from there! Be who you want to be, love and be loved and remember: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!'
You are NOT alone, wherever you are in this world, there are people out there that care! Just hang on in there, you'll find the right ones eventually. It may take time to get there, but it will all be worth it in the end!
Happy Sunday everyone! Xxx
