Friday Favorites: Quotes Edition

Happy happy Friday folks! Even though this was a short week, it felt really long. I am looking forward to a relaxing no-plans weekend after tonights adventure to a Boston University hockey game.

This week is a little different from my normal Friday Favorites post because its all quotes I’ve heard lately that have really resonated with me.

I don’t want to change the world, I just want to change someone’s world.

Change the world

I am not sure where I heard this but I think it was on a podcast. I am not on a life mission to change the whole world; I can barely get myself together on some days. I do, however, want to make sure that in some small way, I can change people’s worlds.

We’re all a little screwed up and we’re all a little bit awesome!

Screwed up Awesome

Just, yes. I could not agree with this more. Again, I heard this on a podcast and immediately wrote it down. I think people take too much time worrying about how screwed up they are when they should be remembering how awesome they are too. Being a little bit awesome will always over power the small parts of us that are screwed up if we let it 🙂

Boldly Be You.

Boldly Be You

There are a lot of things in my life that I would have missed out on if I didn’t actively and boldly be ME! Between hopping lights to Hawaii and Iceland by myself to participating in triathlons, adventure races and just not being afraid to be my weird and adventurous self I have lived the last 30 years to the fullest.

One of the hardest lessons in life is figuring out which bridges to cross and which bridges to burn.

bridges
(I think Oprah said this but don’t quote me on that.)

I don’t know the answer to this yet. Learning when to surrender or when to keep fighting might be a full life journey for me. In my professional life I feel like I have this one more in control than I do in my personal life. But in the day I stayed at a job far too long that was just toxic. I fought to cross the bridge because I thought that was what I was supposed to do and it ended up making me more and more unhappy. They job I went to after I was just as miserable with and left it after 5 months. I burned the proverbial bridge because I knew I would never be happy.

It took me until I found my current job to be truly happy in my professional life but I learned a lot of lessons along the way. Now I need to work on these bridges in the rest of my life!

  1. I liked the ‘I don’t want to change the world, I just want to change someone world’ best out of these. My own personal favourite quote that I have pinned on my desk is ‘I can and I will, watch me’ – it makes me feel that whatever aim for, is mine for the taking.
