50 Cent once said "life is full of twists and turns". Here are five quotes to help you navigate through it all.
1. Everyone has their own unique journey.
"Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey." - Daniell Koepke
2. "Self care is not selfish."
It's not. It never will be. Taking time out of the day to care for yourself can be both lifesaving and life-changing. As days progress, with news headlines getting more and more horrific, it's easy for one's mental health to deteriorate. Taking in so much toxicity can dampen one's spirit and alter their emotions. Take time FOR you. Care for your thoughts. Care for your health. It isn't selfish. It's a necessity.
3. "Focus on you, your goals. "
Comparison can prove to be a huge roadblock when navigating through life. If you let it consume you may find yourself into a couple of accidents. Avoid this by focusing on yourself and your goals. Just watch how much easier the ride will get.
