11 positively inspirational quotes to live by!

Hi friends!

Just last week I stumbled upon (okay spent half an hour scrolling around first) the Netflix remake of Anne of Green Gables and it was serendipity. I have always been the biggest fan of Anne Shirley and so I was absolutely delighted to get to watch it all over again. I think they did a really great job too. The best thing about Anne apart from her fiery temper is her way with words. While re-reading the books I have discovered so many brilliant, inspirational quotes that just sum up life and all it’s complexity so wonderfully I thought I would share them with you.

You can’t love someone back to life…or can you?

Hello friends!

Do you ever get so invested in a show that it causes you to lose sleep? Not in a bad, this-is-so-scary way but more of a what-the-heck-does-this-mean kinda way. I don’t know if you have watched the TV show ‘13 reasons why’ yet, but I did and it cut me up. It’s been running through my mind constantly. I’ve been putting myself in all of the character’s shoes and thinking how and why things went so horribly wrong.

Everybody has those days, everybody makes mistakes,  everyone know’s what I’m talkin’ bout, everybody gets that way. If you got that, that was Hannah Montana reference then I love you. But seriously though, everybody DOES have those days. Those days where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or the wrong side of Sunday and everything just feels crappy.

What does success in your twenties look like?

Hi friends!

What do you think officially makes you an adult? Is it when you move out of home for the first time? Or when you buy a car cat? Or when you start watching the news because you actually want to know what is happening in the world? Whatever it is, the process happens so gradually it kind of catches you off guard. One minute you are happily playing make believe with your friends and the next you are flung into the real world and expected to make all these huge decisions about the future.

The most powerful lesson we can learn from our mistakes

Hi friends!

I have told you before that I have a terrible sense of direction. I cannot read maps to save my life and I’m always getting lost! So believe me when I tell you that I am no stranger to making mistakes…in my direction, fashion choices and potential love interests (cringe.) This week I kinda took the whole making mistakes thing to a new level in that I got hella lost on the bus and ended up stranded.
