I’ve had this quote saved on my computer for quite some time. It’s one of my faves.
“people always ask me, ‘you have so much confidence. where did that come from?’ it came from me. one day i decided that i was beautiful, and so i carried out my life as if i was a beautiful girl. i wear colors that i really like, i wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. it doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. what matters is what you see. your body is your temple, it’s your home, and,” she chuckles, “you must decorate it.”
- Actress Gabourey Sidibe for Harper’s Bazaar.
While on tumblr I found a link to this post which really inspired me. It’s lengthy but definitely worth reading. They’re all amazing secrets but here are my faves:
19. Figure out what your goals and dreams are.
So many people wander aimlessly through life simply going for whatever small thing they want moment by moment. Instead, decide what your perfect life consists of and begin to put the steps in motion to reach that place. The most satisfying thing in the world (yes, better than sex, much better) is overcoming a challenge and reaching a goal. We are the happiest when we are growing and working towards something better.
27. Be the person that makes others feel special.
Be known for your kindness and sympathy.
32. Learn to control your emotions.
The only person that can make you unhappy is you! You are the one that decides to be affected by the words and actions of others. Realize this so that the next time you experience a negative emotion, you can find the strength within yourself to overcome it.
