motivate – look forward not back…

19 Feb

so it’s the middle of february and I reckon everyone is feeling that spring is in the air and it’s time to get out walking, eating habits improving and couch time  moreso for sunday evening.

here are a few thoughts to help you along the way.. they definitely give me something to think about over the past few months…out with the old and in with the new i suppose…

new year’s resolutions are already getting ticked off as i started a new job last week that I LOVE, the work, the people and the place so YUHU!

2 trips away with the girls are ALMOST fully booked and I’m planning to either do the ‘camino’ and a trip to the south of spain and morocco or a few weeks in nz or thailand for the rest of my ‘school’ hols. not quite 3 months but hey at least i don’t need to remortgage myself to go away anymore. meh to student loans. meh.

berlin awaits myself and denise near the end of march to wander the markets and see the lovely florence and the machine and manchester and blackpool will be offering myself and ciara fish n’ chips in newspaper and candyfloss along blackpool pleasure beach 🙂

between then and now, i reckon myself and the girls will get away for a treat and i’d love to make it over to the girls in britland too 🙂 wupeeeeee!

anywho, I’m writing this for those lovely words of wisdom so here they are below – let me know what you think or if you have any to add below xx

make mistakes

if not now, then when?

she turned her can’ts into cans and her dreams into plans…

imagine what you could achieve if you only tried

i may not be there yet, but i’m closer than i was yesterday

don’t promise when you’re happy, do not reply when you’re angry and do not decide when you are sad

dream BIG little one

YOU are somebody’s reason to SMILE.

life is short. there is no time to leave important words unsaid.

be KIND because everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle – plato

don’t be so hard on yourself

forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace

don’t let go too soon but don’t hold on too long…

and my personal fave:

what defines us is how we rise after falling…

    I love the “Don’t promise when you’re happy, do not reply when you’re angry and do not decide when you are sad”. I need to apply that one pretty badly…
