I love this quote so much. Have you considered that your books may be imprisoned by you if you haven’t opened them for such a long time? Do you feel like your books are real, with a secret life of their own? And just like the film Toy Story, in which the toys come to life, your books come to life! If your books could talk to you, what do you think they would be saying to you right now? Please comment below!
People look externally to get their life to be ‘better’; to have more money, to look a certain way; to get people to believe they are this and that. They often go along with the masses, and react like a chameleon, and lose their sense of self in the process! They end up trying to replicate so many others so often, that they barely recognise themselves and then look for external gratification and reassurance that it is okay to be them (which is actually a made up version of lots of other people) – so who is them? Do they even know? ‘Why are you trying to be someone you are not?’ I think to myself, because when your life has ended, will these superficial people you follow and try to be like even care? Stop wasting your life and start living your own! There is no better person to be than yourself, because nobody does a better job of being you, no one else knows what you like, need, and want, more than you do, so only you have the power to make yourself the happiest being alive, and you don’t need anyone else to do that for you. The best role you can possibly get in your life, is that of being your true authentic self, and all you need is you, to see your life through!
Stay your quirky self my friend, live your life for you and love yourself, every day, just as you are, your whole life through!
Well now my all new Quirky Academy is officially launched at last, the moment I have been waiting for, for years of my life, has finally come to fruition! It is a new online training centre for Entrepreneurs, Start-ups, and Creatives, with courses for both personal and professional development! I am starting small and building big and will have other tutors, besides me on there, in their specialist fields. If you want more details on how to become a tutor and what would be involved, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org And I would also like to know your ideas for what types of courses you would want to see on there, so please fill out the poll below, it would be very helpful to me! Thanks in advance xx
