It is a new year, I wanted to write a sappy new year's blog about what I've been through and lessons learned...but you can look forward to that later this week...because I've been reading a very intense, emotional book for the past 2 days called Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult and it has me ruined of any creativity and thought. Plus, that blog I want to write will take some time and effort and I'm tired. Plus, I'm a little obsessed with Dr. Seuss if you don't know that already and I saw this poster on Pinterest and I really think that it is how everyone should live there life every day and thought it would be great for the new year, so I'm reposting it here for all my blog friends to read and for me to remember so I can strive to live my life by it. I am also going to attempt to make a poster of it before I start back to school next monday...crazy, that is so soon!!! :) So enjoy and be inspired :) Love y'all :)
DISCLAIMER:THE REST OF THIS BLOG IS 100% COMPLETELY STOLEN FROM A POSTER I SAW ON PINTEREST :)
Living with Passion: Top 10 Dr. Seuss Quotes on Life (**Editors note (i.e. Me, meggers) P.S. #4 is usually attributed to Seuss but it also sometimes listed as anonymous so this could be 9 Dr. Seuss Quotes on life and 1 good quote ;)
1. "Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
Don't forget the special gift of just being you. Don't get distracted trying to be like something or someone else you're not. You are the best You there could ever be.
2. "If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good."
Life was not given to us to be filled with regrets. Opportunities await and you can be more fun than you ever imagined if you'll simply take the chance. Take advantage of those opportunities and have a blast. What good can possibly come from saying you never tried?
3. "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
Often folks are so worried about what other people think. Be honest and real and those who matter most in your life will accept you no matter what. Those who won't, you don't need. Life is too short to worry all the time what other people think.
4. "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."
This is our opportunity to see the glass as half full. Celebrate people and experiences that you've had and let the memories live on. So often we get trapped in grief and despair when there is so much to be celebrated.
5. "Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple."
Aren't we typically our own worst enemy. We make things more complicated than they have to be. When in doubt, go back to the basics and you'll probably find your answer.
6. "I meant what I said and I said what I meant."
Mean what you say or don't say it at all. Resist the urge to not be genuine in an effort to protect or please yourself or someone else. This does not mean be rude or hateful, in those times it's probably best to not say something. However, when you do speak up, make sure it is what you what to say and what you really mean it's your opportunity to live with integrity.
7. "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
Always make learning a part of your life. You know only a portion of what you could possibly know and there are so many more exciting adventures to come from learning new things. Learning keeps you connected and interested which is a key to living passionately.
8. "How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?"
Time flies by. We all know this for a fact. Don't let it sneak past you without being part of it. Time is the most valuable of all the resources as it's the only one we can never get back.
9. "Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."
Be grateful for the good parts of your day. Recognize what was fun and be thinking of what you can do to make your tomorrow even better.
10. "Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think if you only try."
Trying is a key element to success. Without trying success isn't even a possibility. Without trying you can't complain about what you don't or can't have.
Dream big. Think big and Act big.
It will make all the difference in your life. No limitations.
