Okay so I am totally one of those people who matches my outfit to the weather. If it’s sunny, bring on the whites and brights. Rainy and grey? Black and grey alllll day. Seriously though I make an active effort to not do this but I always end up wearing grey and black during the winter here in Vancouver. Because it rains, ALL THE TIME.
On another note, I was cleaning out my childhood bedroom the other day because my parents were moving and found SO MUCH hilarious stuff. Photos of your pre-teen self are always traumatizing… I was having a very confusing combination of hysterical laughter/tears because the photos were SO RIDICULOUS. Why did I think high-top boots, 1-inch zipper jeans, and a crop top was an acceptable outfit to wear? I swear to god my mom just let me leave the house looking like that because she thought it was jokes and wanted to make fun of me in the future. I’m on to you mom….
Anyways, another one of the things I found was some of the birthday cards that my Omi and Opa (which is German for Grandma and Grandma) wrote me. They legit always write the best cards, because in each card there is an inspirational quote. Which somehow always seem to match my life perfectly at the time. I have taken photos of these quotes and pasted them all over my house for the past few years because they really are so motivating. Not to mention I have them on hand in my iPhone because sometimes you need a mobile reminder to get your ass moving. Since I found the original cards they were written in the other day, I thought I would share my favourites with you here today in hopes that you are also inspired by them.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
– Colin L. Powell
These quotes are significant to me, because I identify so closely with them. Do you guys have any favourite quotes that inspire you? What do you think of these?? Comment below! I want to hear your fave inspirational quotes too 🙂
