Did I say “used to be”? Ok so maybe I’m still a nerd, but I’ve evolved a bit. The nerdiness that I’m talking about today is all about quotes. Please don’t judge me. 😊 When I was about eleven years old I became fascinated with quotes. I loved how I could find words poetically penned that held meaning to me and obviously had done the same for others. It bonded me to them. I collected quotes while other girls my age collected lip gloss (don’t worry that caught up with me). I wrote my quotes down on index cards. Which I then alphabetically ordered by the quotes subject. See?! #totalnerd.
Nowadays I don’t keep my quotes filed. Well, not exactly. I use Pinterest and it’s there for me when I need a little inspiration in my day. Sometimes I just need to read through a few and I feel better. Other times I need to be reminded constantly so I put it on tech wallpapers, print it out and sometimes I even set an alarm that reminds me to get my quote on.
This is one of the many ways that I’ve learned to manage my stress and depression. Depression and anxiety are no joke folks. It’s hard and it’s real but I can take control of a lot of it on my own by choosing what I’m gonna focus on.
All this to say that I’m going to be sharing quotes with you guys once a week. When I can I will offer it as a printable.
As shown above, today’s quote is:
“This is the beginning, of anything you want.”
It comes from song lyrics, the song of which I had never heard until today! I was researching where it came from and I found the song – it is BEAUTIFUL! Take some time and listen to it.
