3 Inspirational Quotes To Live By

As we've just entered 2016 (Happy New Year!) I thought I'd share a few inspirational quotes that I'm going to be living by, and my resolutions for the year ahead. I hope these inspire and motivate!

"Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now." - Unknown

Although I can't credit the wonderful person who came up with this wise old quote, it holds so much importance and relevance in my life. It's easy to always be looking ahead, planning and waiting for things to happen, but every second we spend wishing our lives away is one we can't get back. Although it's nice to look forward to things, this year I plan to focus on the present and enjoy every minute of what is happening now.

"If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place." - Nora Roberts

This is the year of movement and opportunity in my life. It's important to always be working towards your ultimate goals and dreams, and this year I plan to work a little bit harder on trying to achieve them. Seizing chances and opportunities will only better me and my goals, so without hesitation I'm going to plan, seize and blossom.

"Do you want to meet the love of your life? Look in the mirror." - Byron Katie

Loving myself and feeling completely happy in my own skin is something that's going to be taking a front seat in my 2016. Even though we're all a little bit guilty of doing this, we should always treat and speak to ourselves like we would our friends and family - kindly and lovingly. Loving yourself is extremely important in achieving complete happiness, so make peace with your body and love every single flaw.
