YOU’RE THE ONE WHO HAS TO LIVE IT…
And you actually have the right to do what you want, not what other people want you to do. Hm…I wish I’d though of that sooner ; ) The thing is that going your own way is easier said than done and sometimes it can be quite confusing when someone insists on what’s right for you. So here are a few quotes that may come in handy in those situations:
“You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep other people warm.”
“Don’t let a label someone else stamped on you become your reality.” – Skip Prichard
“If you don’t value your time, neither will others. Stop giving away your time and talents. Value what you know and start charging for it.” – Kim Garst
“Don’t let the people who didn’t see your value, cause you to forget how much you are truly worth.”
“If you aren’t being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Maybe you’ve marked yourself down. It’s you who tells people what you’re worth. Get off the clearance rack and get behind the glass where they keep the valuables.”
“Don’t think about your errors or failures; otherwise, you’ll never do a thing.” – Bill Murray.
I’ve been thinking a lot about being good enough lately; a good enough friend, a good enough daughter, a good enough step-mother, a good enough girlfriend, a good enough employee, a good enough film-maker, a good enough person, but I’ve come to the conclusion that if it’s good enough for me then it’ll just have to be good enough.
“Don’t forget to pretend to have your shit together for strangers on the internet today”
“All that matters is that you know who you are. Let other people keep on wondering.”
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.”
So apparently Summer is over for now. I was heartbroken when I was told it was going to rain so I soaked up as much sun as I could during my lunch break on deck. That’s also when I found a cure against wrinkles… Drum role: Get the app Snapseed and use the filter called ‘Smooth’ and voilà..:
Wrinkles are gone 😉
HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE
Yesterday I heard about this 18-year old girl who’s training to become a captain on the Thames. Someday she wants to be the captain of an ocean liner. How cool is that! It made me think of this book called HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE. It’s from 1912 and asks questions like, “Perhaps you don’t see how a mere girl can be of use to the Great British Empire?” Great question, right? But we can all rest assured because, “Girls can even be brave enough to shoot tigers, if they can keep cool.” ; )
YES OR NO?
Can I live without it?
Is it more than 10£?
Can I wear it in the wintertime?
Is it me?
Is it worth it?
Am I worth it?
Yeah, I’m worth it.
Is there enough space for it on the boat? (I frequently forget to ask myself that last question in the heat of the moment but hey, nobody’s perfect!)
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THAT GANNI SKIRT
Dear Law Of Attraction,
I’ve visualised wearing this skirt all summer. I’ve walked the streets as if I already own it. There’s space for it in my closet and I’m sending it one positive thought after another, because it would look really good with my blue bathing suit. (Please, see attached photo.)
Please, dear Law Of Attraction, my patience is about to run out. What more do I have to do? (Except paying for it of course, which is totally out of the question since we’re trying to save up for solar panels.)
Waiting in anticipation for your response dear Law Of Attraction.
ADD A HINT OF PINK ON A GREY DAY…
I guess the best description of today’s outfit is: “You only have the fun you make yourself!”
