Living is hard.
Living in New York City is even harder, I read a quote somewhere about people in New York and that the reason that everybody was always in a rush or in a hurry was because they were busy chasing their dreams. Being in a place like this – seeing so many people around you going after what they want with no apologies can be very inspirational, but is can also get you down when you, yourself are not living up to your full potential. A missed opportunity, a bad day, someone steps on you while you’re walking to work everybody’s favorite, a crotch is thrust into your face on the subway. To help you get through these hard times here are a few inspirational quotes to help boost your spirit.
“What has reached you was never meant to miss you and what has missed you was never meant to reach you”
This literally translates to STOP WORRYING; this is first because it’s so powerful if you really look at it, it doesn’t need much of an explanation. If you can apply this to every aspect of your life, a job interview gone wrong, a relationship that never came to fruition anything really, it can really help you to stop scrutinizing every aspect of your life
“Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, not everyone is going to stay forever”
This one is a little longer but it’s still so great, whether it be friends, boyfriends, even jobs or phases of your life. You could meet someone wonderful, intelligent, cute, intellectual, super tall, whose hair falls just the right way, with perfect teeth and a great smile, basically someone that ticks all your boxes and boxes you didn’t even know could be checked and it could just not work out for one reason or another. Instead of looking back on that time as a waste think about how much they enriched your life, how much they taught you about yourself – your likes, dislikes whatever. Realize that not everything has a happy ending.
“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.”
This is a quote by Deepak Chokra and really just gives me life, on a daily basis. Basically don’t think you are supposed to follow one path or another, do you and everything will fall into place…. at least that’s how I look at it.
“Everything is temporary”
Through good and bad, happy and sad, nothing lasts forever. The honeymoon phase with your boyfriend? It’s going to end, the shitty job? You’ll find a new one, having a hard time getting over somebody? You will. Don’t know what to do with your life? You’ll figure it out. Whether good or bad it will pass, so enjoy the good times and endure the hard times because things are constantly changing.
