Because its Monday: Good vibes & Words of Wisdom

Hello loves, I trust you all had a wonderful weekend despite some of us losing an hours beauty sleep!

I often come across words of wisdom or quotes that inspire, motivate or that I can just totally relate to & it's often when I'm lacking in the inspiration department or feeling a little bleh, that I like to re-read and go back to some of my favourite quotes (of which there are waaaay to many).

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life. I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

  I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.  I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou (- American Author & Poet)  Even the most rational person can act or react irrational when life throws a few curveballs, just remember that random acts of kindness are always unexpected and will forever put a smile on someones face.

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” – Zig Ziglar.  I think about this one when I get stuck in a rut and overthink things too much. 

“There are no short cuts to any place worth going.” – Beverly Sills. This is just so true, for pretty much everything I have ever achieved or learnt in life, mistakes are there to be made, being focused helps and at the end of the day I'm always learning. 

"Some people dream of success, whilst others wake up and work hard at it." No idea who said this - Pinterest??? "Good things come to those who work their asses off & never give up!"

Despite all the good vibes and quotes about life, nothing else is as important as your own happiness & health.

I hope you enjoyed some of these! I'm on a bit of a quotes roll at the mo, especially since finishing Steve Jobs' autobiography, which was amazing btw and now I'm reading "The Jimmy Choo Story". I guess what I'm hinting at is that it's always good to have a little bit of constant life re-inforcement action going on. I'm going to sound a bit cheesy when I say that I love Tony Robbins acronym: CANI, what does it mean? Constant and never-ending improvement, sounds tiring just thinking about it, no? Well it's a good motivational saying you can apply to any area of life.

Thank you for stopping by, reading, commenting or even following - the whole shebang really. You guys mean the world to me. I know I haven't been around much lovelies, but I'm not going to try and beat myself up about that. When I'm done with most of my projects I'll be back in full ABG force, right now I'm not going to be able to respond to all your wonderful comments or catch up on blog reading, just yet...
