If you follow @thefoundcamera on Instagram you will know I LOVE a good inspiring quote, in fact, you can’t scroll through any social media feed these days without one popping up every 5 seconds. I admit it some are a little ridiculous at times (And no, I’m not that person who has “Live, Laugh, Love” above his bed….. ) some of these can be a powerful message in our lives and a mantra for how we see our future.
A lot of the quotes we come across are light-hearted, but there is some that we need to remember and carry out in our lives. The next time you are in a bad mood or find yourself saying you will “do it tomorrow”, remember some of these quotes that can put things into perspective.
“If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree”
In life it is very easy to become comfortable in situations, even if you’re in a situation you are not happy with. Well, guess what? If you don’t like a situation, get out of it. Sometimes we build it up to be much more complicated to get out of something in our heads than what it really is.
“Don’t wish your life was good. Don’t hope it will get better. Get up and make it amazing.”
It’s so easy to waste your time wishing you had the life you dream of, and it’s even easier to scroll social media in envy of the people who are living there best life. Unfortunately if you want something, you have to work for it. Sitting on the couch won’t make your life what you want it to be. You have to get up, work hard and be grateful for every opportunity on the way.
“You can’t do epic shit with basic people”
You should only ever surround yourself with people who lift you up, not tear you down. If someone in your life isn’t bringing out the best in you and weighs you down, BYE!
“Don’t quit your day dream”
Most of us in the work force will be helping someone else reach their dreams. Make sure any dreams you have aren’t forgotten, don’t waste all of your energy helping someone else reach theres.
“Stop saying yes to shit you hate doing”
When you are younger there is a sense of obligation to go to the party or hang out with the people you may not have a great deal of time for. If you don’t want to do something and it is going to bring you no joy to your life DON’T DO IT!
“The trouble is we think we have time”
It’s so easy to say ill do it tomorrow, but reality is we may not have tomorrow. As corny as this sounds, as the days go by its another day wasted that we could have spent doing the things we are always putting off. if you want to start that diet, don’t wait till Monday, do it now. Want to start a business? Start now not next week. You never know what could happen tomorrow, so don’t wait for it.
“An investment in travel is in investment in yourself”
In my view, travel is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves. There is an entire world out there waiting to be explored, and removing yourself from your day-to-day routine reenergize’s you and gives you perspective on where you want the next stage of your life to go. Even if it’s just a weekend away 2 hours from where you live, make sure you always take time to invest time in travel and YOU.
