A quote a day keeps the doctor away! Not really, but it sure can help you think and view life in a different way. Below I’ve written some quotes I found online and my take on them. If you have a different quote or different opinion on the quote, please do share below in the comments because I would love to read it.
“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of your today.”
In life we have something happen to us each day, good or bad. For some strange reason we often dwell on the bad, allowing the negativity to transfer from day to day. Why is it that we do that? Why do we let one bad day affect another day that has the potential of being great if not wonderful?! Don’t let the day that is already behind you take up much, if any, of your present day. Learn to move on and leave things behind.
“Worry is a misuse of imagination.”
I’ve never heard of this quote up until recently and boy did it hit me hard. I worry; I worry a lot. I am a very anxious person sometimes and I sometimes can be caught awake at 3am with a rapid beating heart and a racing mind. I worry about things that don’t even need to be worried about, things like the future or exams. I worry too much. Reading this quote has made me realize how I’ve been putting my imagination to waste because essentially a worry is an imagination, it’s a negative one but it’s a imagination regardless. I need to put a halt to my mishandling of my imagination and focus on more positive thoughts, no worries.
