A Journey of Mindfulness #3dayquotechallenge

Hello, Readers!

I’ve been given a great honor and nominated to participate in a 3 Day Quote Challenge. I was nominated by beehalton2 at her blog The Bee Writes. Over the course of the next 3 days, I will share with you some of my personal favorite quotes and I will tell you why they are my favorites.

My first quote is one I’ve probably reviewed here before:

 

I’ll admit that a few years back I had no idea what that actually meant. I often pretended that I did. I would run around quoting the term, I’m going to raise my price tag. The problem was, I never went about it the right way. I never truly wanted to ‘raise my standards or price tag’. I just wanted all the attention as if I had. I thought I could make people step up and respect me when I did very little to none to deserve such a thing. I placed my happiness on everyone else.

Now, that I’ve grown and changed. Even as I continue to grow and change, which I will do for the rest of my life, my thoughts on this have changed.

I’ve raised my standards throughout my life in many ways. Three years ago I quit smoking. After that, I quit drinking all the time. Again, I raised them when I decided to work on getting healthy. (Even if I haven’t succeeded yet, I have begun the journey.) And now, I’m raising it once more by taking steps to become a better more positive me.

I strive each and every day to be better than the me that existed yesterday and even when it is only a millimeter better than I was previously, it is worth celebrating and continuing to move forward.

Can you think of places and times in your past that you’ve raised your own standards? Are you working on it now?

Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live life, Own life, Love life).

  1. Oh, I’m so glad I wrote this post today. I’ve been trying to eat better and be more healthy lately. It has been a huge struggle, especially when I don’t see the numbers on the scale dropping. I’m so glad you pointed out here that it’s worth it even if you’re just a fraction better than you were yesterday or the day before. It makes me feel so much better about my journey and motivates me to keep going. Thank you!!!
