Smooth Sailing

Easy lives never make for strong people. I feel like there are probably several ways to go about saying this, as with other phrases. But I feel like this week’s quote is probably the most poetic way of doing so.

smooth sailing

In essence, easy lives generally mean no problems, no struggles, no hardships or stress. No lessons to learn from. This means a lack of experience. The hardest struggles are the ones you end up learning the most from, as I’ve come to find in my own life.

You find out just who you’re made of, and you walk away a better and stronger person. So don’t be afraid of facing problems head-on. It’s just a doorway to a better you.

Here’s to hoping that this week isn’t *too* easy for you, but that you face all of your challenges head-on and conquer each of them in turn. You can do it, I just know it!

What was one hardship or problem you faced in the past, and how do you feel like it bettered you? Let me know in the comments below!

Fight For Your Dreams

Hello again loves, I hope your St. Paddy’s day weekend was a fun (and SAFE) one! Mine was fairly laid back, spend mostly indoors nursing a chest/head cold in an attempt to speed the healing process before this coming weekend. Zach and I have fun travel plans and I DO NOT want to be sick during the festivities. This week’s QOTW is some inspiration to fight for your dreams, no matter how crazy some people may say they are, or how impossible it feels to reach them at times. Fight. It’ll be worth it.

2018 fight for your dreams

People will tell you all the time how impossible or unrealistic your dreams are. They’ll tell you that you’ll never be able to make a living if you pursue it. It’s too expensive, risky, dangerous even. You’ll never be successful. Play it safe and be a doctor, a nurse, or something similar and “safe”.

But what those people don’t know is that if you have the passion and the drive to achieve your goals and dreams, you will be so much happier and satisfied with your life. If you manage to make a career out of it you’ll never complain about working for the rest of your life. If your dream is to climb a mountain, then start training and make a plan to reach that.

Turn your dreams into goals and make a plan to reach them. Because once you do, they’re no longer seemingly out of reach.

till next time,
