New Year, Same You (Just Constantly Improving)

10 inspiring quotes for your everydays

New Year, Same You (Just Constantly Improving)

We're barely into the month of January, but my New Years resolutions have already faltered. I've indulged in one too many cookies, forgotten to have a grateful heart, and have yet to stick with the productive daily schedule I had planned. However, as I began to feel discouragement creep in, I remembered something. Something so simple, yet something that I had totally lost sight of! It shouldn't take the start of a new year to make changes. I know, I know. That isn't exactly earth shattering, but in that moment of remembrance, it felt like I had been granted a second chance at achieving my goals.

After all, everyday is an opportunity for us to step closer to our goals, reevaluate our paths, and improve our current endeavors. However, it's often difficult to develop this mindset—especially when we overwhelm ourselves with unrealistic expectations and overload our days with endless tasks. During these disheartening times, I turn to motivational quotes for inspiration and renewed perspective. Below are 10 of my favorite quotes to be applied to the year, the month, the day, even the very hour—that you've been given to live in this moment.

Here's 10 quotes to remember for our everydays:

1. "When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles." ~Pooh Bear
2. "Forever is composed of nows." ~Emily Dickinson

3. "The one who falls and gets up is so much stronger than the one who never fell." ~Unknown
4. "The road to success is always under construction." ~Lily Tomlin
5. "You don't have to do this, you get to do this." ~Tom Kubis
6. "Love life, engage in it, give it all you've got. Love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it." ~Maya Angelou
7. "People generally see what they look for and hear what they listen for." ~Harper Lee
8. "The what-if's & the should-have's will eat your brain." ~John O'Callaghan
9. "I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing." ~Agatha Christie
10. "Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see." ~Mark Twain

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)
