Quote challenge #day3

Hey everyone! So today is my last day of the quote challenge. I’m kind of relieved that I have completed my first challenge as a blogger, and I’m kind of sad that I won’t be doing this any more. I might do these type of posts in the future, who knows?

The challenge is:

  1. Post in three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

 

Today’s quote is:

“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but what’s important to me is my opinion of myself.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

 

I  have chosen this quote to end on because it is a really important thing that we will come across in our day-to-day lives. This ‘important‘ thing is people. People will be kind, they will be nasty, they might love you and they might hate you. That is just the way it works. Not everyone is going to like everyone. You might not like a person’s personality or the way they treat other people and you don’t have to. No one can force you to.

Just because a person is popular or ‘cool,’ does not mean that you have to like them. You don’t. You don’t have to be mean to them or give them dirty looks every time they walk past, you just have to be civil. Say hi and smile at them. Give them a little wave. It could be the start of something new and you realise that this person is not what they seem. They could be a completely different person inside.

If someone does not like you, do not waste your precious time worrying or contemplating on everything that is wrong with you, go out and adventure. Adventure through the world. Go on a journey to find the real you. Benefit someone in some way. Change the world. Everyone has the power the change the world, most people are just too afraid to use it. Be fearless and don’t let anyone stand in your way.

The last thing I want to touch upon is how we value ourselves and how we look at ourselves. Everyone has imperfections and no one is perfect. The sooner you accept these imperfections, the sooner you will be much happier. You will realise that them things weren’t really imperfections, they are what make you, you. They make you the wonderful, unique person that you are, and no one can replicate that. Even if someone tries so hard to be like someone they will never exactly be like them. Imagine how boring the world would be if everyone was the same? Everyone would act the same and look the same. They would all have the same personality and the same way of thinking. I for one am glad the world is not the same, everyone deserves to be their own person.

Don’t let anyone put you down. Don’t let anyone add another something to your pain. You have the ability to do well, don’t let anyone take that away from you. Because in the end “we all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”

The last three nominees are:

  1. disdailydose
  2. emilycatstanley
  3. Nansfit

 

I look forward to doing these types of posts again soon. But for now it was fun doing this challenge and I’m ready for the next challenge that comes my way. Until the next time I can be bothered to write so much.

Quote challenge #day2

Hey everyone! So I haven’t really stuck by the rules while doing this challenge and I am really sorry for that. But I promised to do a day 2 of the challenge and here it is!

The challenge is:

  1. Post in three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

 

Today’s quote is:

“Writing about the past is a way of reliving it, a way of seeing it unfold all over again. We place memories on pieces of paper to know they will always exist.” ~ Nathan Filer – The Shock of the Fall

I was looking for a quote for today and I came across this one. It instantly stood out to me. You know you can really connect and feel a quote deeply when it jumps out of the screen at you. I don’t know why, it might just be the fact that I feel all quotes deeply and I love them all, but it has a really great message behind it.

To ease the pain of what you are experiencing or to lessen it just a bit, it is great to write. Write whatever you are feeling, whatever is on your mind or whatever you absolutely hate. It will get it off your mind and the great thing about it is that no one apart from you can see it. The best thing about it is that you can mention people’s names and what you really feel about them, because they will never know. It will just be off your head and you will feel lighter and mentally more stable. It will also stop you from accidentally telling them everything you really thought of them during an argument. I’ll explain.

If you constantly have thoughts in your head about how much you don’t like a person or something that you dislike about them, but you want to be nice to them to their face, then you are treading on thin ice! You might one day get into a fight with them and out of anger all those thoughts that you had tried so hard to hold back, will come pouring out. Believe me it has happened! If you are writing all of this down in a book, diary, journal or just some pieces of paper, then you will feel much happier not only physically, but mentally as well.

If you write about things you have experienced or problems you have faced, then when you look back in a few years time, you will feel happy that you had overcome that. You will have hope that things do indeed get better, and it was not always that hard. You can relive the feelings that you went through. The emotions, the physical and mental impacts will rush back to you like a tidal wave. It is like a little burst of energy that will run right through you and will inspire you to keep going and refill your hope levels. Be careful though, there might be triggers.

I’m going to end on one point that may be of use to someone out there. Do not be afraid to write. Do not be afraid to release all your emotions through whatever makes you happy. It will be better for you not only now, but also in the future. Start writing once or twice a week just to empty your thoughts onto the paper. You don’t even have to write, you can draw and paint as well. Drawing can represent your thoughts very deeply and it can be very pleasing to see the end result of what you have created too!

I used to write most days just about what I felt and about the things that I really hated and the people I very much disliked. I wrote a few of my own stories about real things and I am 2 pages into a book about amnesia. I had stopped about a year ago and I have found myself becoming very wrapped up in my own thoughts a lot more and I find that my head is also more of a mess now than it was. It is because I have no way to empty my thoughts or get them out somehow because I don’t write any more. I would, it’s just that I don’t have the time or energy to pull out a pen and paper and start writing.

So that was day 2 of the quote challenge! It seemed more harder to write that than the other one, probably because I forced myself to write this one.

Here are the next three nominees:

  1. Craving Dreams
  2. thedreamyjournal
  3. WhenIThoughtIWasFat

 

Thank you for reading this and feel free to leave any of your thoughts down in the comments. Don’t stop writing. Because “you must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”

Quote Challenge #day1

Hey everyone!

So I have been nominated to do the quote challenge. (Here’s the post where I was nominated in https://missmoodygirl.wordpress.com/2016/02/17/day-3-quote-challenge/)

The challenge:

  1. Post in three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

(obviously because I’m lazy I am doing one quote per day)

 

The quote I have chosen today is:

“Not all my scars show. Not all my wounds heal. Sometimes you can’t see, the pain someone feels.” ~ Lisa French

I think this quote is a really powerful one because it shows just how much people can hide from the rest of the world. You might think you know someone very well, but what you think you know is the person they are on the outside. You don’t see the person inside. And you never will. The person on the outside is there to protect the inside, like a shell. You might get to know a person really well and you like them for their personality and how they smile all the time. But how do you know that the person that you are so fond of is just fake? You don’t. You can begin to learn about the real person if you stick around for long enough, but most people don’t. So instead of the real person inside getting torn apart or broken every time someone leaves, they have built a wall to save them from the outside world.

This wouldn’t be a real post if I didn’t add my own personal story or experience in it. So here’s a story for you. I think 2 people reading this have already heard this story because it kind of just fitted to the conversation at the time, but it fits in to this quote so I will repeat it.

I was on a school trip where we had to stay at this outdoor adventure centre thing for 3 days. I’m not too good with school trips, especially the ones where you have to stay overnight (I’m kind of stupid because I always agree to go on them). This is usually because every day in school I am a fake person. I put on a fake smile and I pretend to be someone I am not. It works out pretty well as some people seem to like the fake me. This is pretty hard when you have to live with the very people that you are scared of finding out about you and the person you protect inside. You are scared about them knowing that you are just one mess of fakeness.

So on the last night that we were there I just got so overwhelmed with having to fake being the person that i am not, that I couldn’t help but break the protective shell around me. You may think that this was a good thing as I was more real to people and everyone could learn to like the real me. But it was the complete opposite. You see, even I am afraid of the real me. I started fighting with my friends, I stopped caring about what I said to other people and I hurt the one person who had been there for me since the beginning. One of my friends approached me when I had walked away from everyone. This is what she said: “Why can’t you go back to being the happy you that is always smiling in school?” I replied with one line that probably made her rethink everything she thought she knew about me, “that me is fake. This is the real me. You should get used to it.” Then there was silence.

I’m just going to end on one piece of advice for you reading this. Be careful about how you treat people and what you say to them. You don’t know what is on their mind and you don’t know how much your words could be adding to their pain. Try to be nice to everyone and take the time out to ask how someone is feeling  and just make them smile. You never know, it could be the only time they had smiled that day.

The bloggers I nominate to do this challenge are:

  1. Misfit Spirit
  2. Stay Strong Beautifulxxx
  3. SyedaFR

 

Thank you to supergirl2000 for nominating me! 

I’m sorry this was like a day late, it was because all of yesterday my Wi-Fi was down so I couldn’t get on to the internet.

I look forward to reading your posts and have an awesome day wherever you are. Until tomorrow then.
