Every week, I like to write about a quote, too. I have always loved reading and becoming inspired with various quotes. I also like to write them down on cute note pad paper for my boyfriend. I like to place the note in his sweater pockets, or somewhere where he can find it.
I am trying to not let myself be defined by my failures. I try to look at everything as something that needed to happen, in order for the better things to happen to me. Everything in life is only temporary. So when things aren’t working for us, we know that things can only get better.
Every week, I like to post about something inspirational and motivational. I hope this helps people achieve their goals.
I like to think that if we spend more time focusing and talking about our blessings, instead of our problems, then the universe will continue to bless us with more blessings, and things to be grateful for. If you continue to talk about what is wrong in your life, then the universe is just going to continue to bring you more hardships. Whatever you send out into the universe is going to come back to you, multiplied. Whatever you spend your most time talking about is going to come back to you, so you may as well talk about your blessings.
I am a bit behind, but I hope everyone had a great week, so far. Here is a weekly quote to close out the week.
We have the power to use our words to heal or hurt people, the choice is ours. Why don’t we do something inspiring to help others? We might not even know the magnitude of our words or actions have on other people. So in the world that can seem like an awful place, we should learn to love and appreciate others.
And more importantly we should also learn to empower ourselves. We need to learn that it is okay to let go of things, and sometimes people that no longer serve us, or add any joy in our lives. It’s okay to leave things behind. Not everything was meant to stay with us forever. The sooner we learn this, the more peaceful our lives will be.
I love representing my Canadian girls! One of my favourite singers is Shania Twain. I remember my parents bought me a Shania Twain CD for Christmas. I was so happy! I love listening to her music. I remember begging my parents to play that CD in their car. So I thought it would be perfect to include her for Music Mondays.
The song that I picked for Shania Twain is Up!, it is about learning to remain positive after something bad has happened to you. Shania is telling us that things can only go up from here.
“When everything is goin’ wrong Don’t worry, it won’t last for long Yeah, it’s all gonna come around Don’t go let it get you down You gotta keep on holding on”
Despite that the first month of the year is coming to a close. It’s important to remind yourself that you even though you didn’t get to do all the things you had wished to do, it doesn’t mean that you won’t ever be able to accomplish your goals. Sometimes the roads to success is under construction, so you may have to take a detour to your goals, and that is okay, too. Or sometimes, you have to take another road, and then you come across one of my favourite words – serendipity. It means that you found something better than what you were looking in the first place.
But regardless of what you are going through right now, you will find your passion, and you will reach your goals. Just hold your head held high, because when you cry, or hold your head low, your tiara is falling. Keep on going, and never lose sight of your dreams.
The other night, my boyfriend and I were discussing something, and he could have handled it better. I get that it was a stressful topic. But just because something is stressful, it does not give someone a free pass to say something mean to the other person. When things get stressful, it is important to stay calm, and not to lash out by something you will regret the second you say it.
“Two things to remember in life”
Take care of your thoughts when you are alone, and take care of your words when you are with people.”
Learn to refrain from saying anything mean to another person just because you two are fighting or having a disagreement.
Today, I will learn to carefully about my thoughts that I wish to share and contribute to the person I am talking to. I should learn that my tongue has the power to heal or the power to hurt someone. I should make sure that I speak only kind words. I should choose my words wisely, to ensure that I don’t hurt anyone in the process.
Something that I have learnt from Gretchen Rubin, is that she talks about the importance of what we do every day, matters more than what we occasionally do.
“What you do every day matters more than what you do once in awhile”
What I love about this quote is that she talks about how important our habits are. I believe how we spend our days matters. How we spend our days, can tell us if we have what it takes to make our goals a reality. Do we prioritize social media instead of spending time working on our goals?
Even if we only spend 10 minutes of working on our goals, we can have a bit accomplished, than nothing at all. Good habits of setting aside time every day, is what helps ensures you that we accomplish our goals.
Today, I will allow myself to spend time on what I truly want to achieve. I will understand that how I decide to use my time, will determine what habits I would like to have. And these habits will determine whether or not I have the ability to make my goals happen.
I like to start the week off by sharing a positive quote to help us be more positive with ourselves, and whatever comes our way throughout the week.
I hope this quote helps others. I would like people to believe in themselves more. I dislike when I hear people who keep on saying they can’t do things, or they are scared to do something they know is the right thing to do.
We need to embrace ourselves, and trust our journey. Anything is possible. Just learn to not be so hard on yourself. Just go after your future.
Happy new year! I hope everyone is having an amazing start to the year so far.
What to expect from me, Three Yellow Daisies AKA Julianne? Well, I am keeping everything the same, but for right now I am not going to be holding off on my daily decluttering mission for the time being. Instead I am going to be focusing on My Happiness Project. It’s where each month I focus on making small changes in my life in order to bring in more joy and happiness into my life. This month’s theme is ways to boost my energy. Although there is a topic about possessions coming up shortly, so that is where I will continue my decluttering journey. More on this shortly.
You are all welcome to partake in either My Happiness Project, or Gretchen Rubin’s book called The Happiness Project, or if you like you can make your own. It’s totally up to you.
If any point, you feel inspired, feel free to let me know, or you can spread joy, by telling a friend, or a family member about how this blog has helped you. I would love and appreciate that.
Even though the majority of us aren’t able to travel to new places, it doesn’t mean that we have to stay where we are. We can embrace new places, whether it’s getting promoted at work, or going to school, or talking a walk in a new neighbourhood. Staying where we are, doesn’t mean anything bad. It just means we have to embrace what we have. No storm lasts forever. Remember that. Instead embrace new beginnings and new opportunities.
Here’s to new beginnings, and hopefully a lot of happiness.
May all of our struggles turn into the flowers we were wishing for. I hope we are given the strength, to overcome anything in the new year.
Always remember that you are enough. Everything you do, for yourself, and for others is appreciated, and enough. We all matter, and we all make a difference, so don’t think of yourself as anything less.
