Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

Hello everyone, it’s time again for my quick quote of the week post! “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” I love this quote because really there is no such thing as failure. We learn and grow each time we try something new and yes, it may not always be the success we had hoped for but you can bet you learned a lot on the way.

As Steve Jobs wisely said; it’s a matter of looking back and connecting the dots.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, even if at first it may not be immediately clear! Happy Hump Day everyone :)

A bit of midweek motivation..

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all having a good week? I’ve had a lot of work on in the last few weeks, which has meant working some very long days so I have to admit that I am feeling a little bit drained at the moment. I am not sure about you, but I can definitely use some midweek motivation to get me through this week!

“Dream big, work hard, stay focussed and surround yourself with good people” Four pretty important things to live by! Such a great reminder to ensure we keep dreaming and surrounding ourselves with good people at times when we might feel a little out of balance. Happy Hump Day! :)

Momentary Happiness…

Hello everyone, it’s that time of the week again for some mid-week wisdom! Today I am sharing the love for instagrammer ‘Charlotte Freeman’ – or better known as @momentaryhappiness because I just adore her instagram feed. It is always filled with beautiful quotes and images of sun, sand and happy moments.

image2 Momentary Happiness...

“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen. Repent just means to change direction—and NOT to be said by someone who is waggling their forefinger at you. Repentance is a blessing. Pick a new direction, one you wouldn’t mind ending up at, and aim for that. Shoot the moon.”  – Anne Lamott

Such a beautiful quote, right? I agree that we are too hard on ourselves most of the time!

Make sure you follow @momentaryhappiness on instagram to get your daily fix of great quotes, beach & sunshine. They always make me smile, and secretly wish I was on a tropical island somewhere. Happy Hump Day! I hope you have a wonderful day :)

What lies within us..

Hello, I hope you all had a good weekend and have had a good start to the week? I had a lovely time this weekend with my brother, sister in law and my darling little nephew visiting me here in London. We just chilled out together, explored a bit of London and enjoyed some nice food from the comfort of my cosy little home because it rained like crazy here on Sunday. Quality family time is so special, especially now that my nephew is growing up so quickly – I don’t want to miss a thing!  Can’t believe it’s Wednesday again already, I know I say this every week but boy doesn’t time just fly by. Maybe it seems to just go faster and faster the older I get? Haha! Wednesday means mid-week, and mid-week means time for my weekly Hump Day quote!

86bb078e589336e4b47b634f45611c57 What lies within us..

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen.”

I love this quote. It reminds me that you shouldn’t let what happened in the past bother you, or worry too much about what the future holds. Because neither are as important as the strength of character you have that will help you overcome both your past demons and future worries. What lies within us, our character, is what really makes us who we are and your inner view sets your outlook on life. Happy Hump Day everyone :)

Let your guard down..

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all having a good week! It feels to me like the silly season has officially kicked off. Christmas decorations and lights are popping up all over London and socially life is pretty hectic with most of my nights and weekends already booked up until Christmas. But I won’t complain, it’s all good fun and I do love seeing all the pretty and cosy festive stuff around the city! Plus it means the days are flying by and a Christmas holiday is not far away. However for now, let’s just focus on it being mid-week which means time for my weekly hump day motivation!

“In love and in life, our vulnerability is one of our greatest strengths. We often believe that we risk too much by being vulnerable, but, in fact, the opposite is true. When we build a wall around us to protect ourselves from our big, bad fears, we miss out on so much.”

 Let your guard down..

I love this quote and I think a lot of us struggle with letting our guard down, I certainly know I do! But really we should remind ourselves more often that it is OK to let your guard down because, yes it is a risk and maybe you will get hurt. But you know what; whatever it is…you will get over it. If your senses tell you to take a chance, take it. You don’t want to regret what you didn’t do, but rather what you did do. Happy Hump Day :)
