Quote of the Week #1

Hey Friendies!
I really enjoy the 'Motivational Monday' series I see a lot of bloggers involved in so I decided to start a new series called 'Quote of the Week' this way, I'm not restricted to Mondays but can upload any day of the week I feel like I need a little extra push. 
I will share different quotes that I find helpful and inspiring, quotes that I try to, or feel that I need to incorporate into my life. I intend to keep the quotes relevant to my thoughts and feelings of that week. 
I plan on finding them from different websites such as Pinterest and make unique images especially for my blog as I think creating the images will be the best part!
I hope this series will help spread some positivity and makes us all feel that little bit more hopeful and happy, one can never be too happy :)
So onto this weeks quote....

Yesterday I wasn't feeling so good, I'm not sure why. It was just one of those days where you sit round the house in your sweats, not having the motivation to do anything constructive, now or ever. When you just want to stay indoors for the rest of your life, cuddle up in your bedroom, play meaningless games on your phone and escape from reality and all its challenges. When you recognize that you're twenty, you're now an adult and you feel like it's only going to keep getting harder and harder, and will be a constant uphill battle. Its safe to say I was feeling pretty pessimistic about the future and doubting whether I have what it takes to deal with the responsibilities of adulthood. The challenges I face in the not so distant future like passing my driving test, getting my degree, getting a job, moving out, possibly having to emigrate, starting my career, and essentially becoming an adult all seemed so overwhelming.  

But then I seen this quote and noticed how much it related to me, how much I should adhere to it. I realised that I was believing that my whole life was going to be 'bad' or difficult and that I would never have the motivation or determination to achieve anything I needed to achieve. But I have to realise, that just because everything seems difficult and overwhelming and down right awful today, doesn't mean it actually will be, it just means that today is a lazy, pessimistic and 'bad' day. It means that today I am in a bad mood, with a bad outlook on everything, but that does not go to say that these 'struggles' I face really will be as scary and huge as I see them, it does not mean that I will go through my whole life dispirited or that my adult life is going to be nothing but a constant battle. On days like this, I have to open my eyes and realise that there will be good days again, there will be great days again, there will be days when I am motivated and inspired to work to achieve my goals, and to grow into the person I want to be. Yes there will be many obstacles along the way but that does not suggest that my adult life will be any less joyful than my childhood. With years comes knowledge, courage and experience that will get me through those rough seas.

Wow, I totally agree with this! I've graduated from university and at the moment I constantly feel like that's it now, I've had my fun and it's all boring adult stuff from here on out. But you're so right with this one! I still do really fun stuff with friends, and I think now I value it even more because we all have to make the effort to travel to see each other, and the more I think about it, the more I'm excited about the prospect of having my own money and being able to decorate a house that is my own. All those kind of things are the things I need to focus on, not the bad days. This post really reminded me of that, so thank you so much.

I love this quote so much! I might print it out and frame it if that's OK with you? xx

Of course you can print it out! I would be honoured to have my little picture framed in your room! :) x

This is really great and I totally agree. I recently had some bad news followed by some great news about an opportunity to work abroad for the summer. This has definitely shown me that there will always be great days to overshadow the bad ones and that tomorrow is a brand new day.

I also really love these kind of blog posts and you've done a great one! :)

This kind of reminds me of what my AP Lit teacher would say: Getting a bad score on an essay doesn't mean you're bad at writing. Same thing with life. Making a mistake in life doesn't necessarily mean that you're a bad person. Thank you for sharing this :)
