Best Life Quotes This Year





Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself: what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.


 


There was a time in my life when everything lined up perfectly. I was on top of the world. I thought, "Life is easy!"
Then came the time when no matter what I did, I couldn't seem to get it right. I thought to myself "Life is so hard!" After all that, I just wanted to sleep. "Wake me up when this is all over.." I would say.
 
That's when everything changed and my life was simply unrecognizable.
So I learned to ride the waves, appreciate the blessings, and see life for what it really was.
-- An Adventure
This is the thing: When you hit 28 or 30, everything begins to divide. You can see very clearly two kinds of people. On one side, people who have used their 20s to learn and grow, to find themselves and their dreams, people who know what works and what doesn’t, who have pushed through to become real live adults. Then there’s the other kind, who are hanging onto college, or high school even, with all their might. They’ve stayed in jobs they hate, because they’re too scared to get another one. They’ve stayed with men or women who are good but not great, because they don’t want to be lonely. They mean to develop intimate friendships, they mean to stop drinking like life is one big frat party. But they don’t do those things, so they live in an extended adolescence, no closer to adulthood than when they graduated.

Don’t be like that. Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal.

Ask yourself some good questions like: “Am I proud of the life I’m living? What have I tried this month? Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small? Is there any brokenness in my life that’s keeping me from moving forward?”

Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love, and with people who believe. Life is a grand adventure. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path.

Everyone is broken. Why is your pain special?
If you look at the world as half empty you will never be full


 










I came to realize that there were some things in life you would never get over, some transgressions you could not forget or forgive yourself for, some pains that would not pass, some people you would never stop missing.

To get different results,
you must do different things.

Picture this. Ten years from now, you’re sitting in a big house, all white picket fence and porch swings. Ten years ago you swore you’d be living in a big city with her by your side but something happened along the way and you watched as those plans disintegrated in the palms of your hands. You watch the sunrise and you watch the sunset and you wonder if she’s somewhere on the other side of the planet like she promised. “I gotta get out of here,” she said, “it doesn’t matter how I do it or where I go, I’m getting out.”

Picture this. Twenty years from now, you find your first grey hair. You dutifully have that middle aged panic attack that everyone seems obliged to have and you screw up your eyes and pull it out. Your life is pretty steady now: good, calm, like you’ve finally figured things out. “I’m getting old,” you grumble. And somewhere, at the back of your mind, you wonder if she’s getting old too.

Picture this. Fifty years from now your hair is like snow (if you have any, that is). Your walking stick is your new best friend and memories seem to flit in and out of your head like clouds in the sky. Most days you can’t remember what you had for breakfast or what you’ll have for tea, and some days it’s beginning to hurt to breathe. It’s on these occasions, when your chest is heavy and you have to sit down, that you remember her. You think how true it is that you don’t forget the people you loved when you were young. You may not remember yesterday’s weather but you remember the fifty year old summer breeze and complaining about her hair in your face. “I wonder if she’s happy,” you say, and people mistake it for mindless rambling. “I hope she found what she was looking for.”





getting hurt isn't just a
consequence or punishment – it’s an essential ingredient to our growth. The whole of living is wrapped up in pain. It’s about the giving too much and the going too hard and the f.ucking up and falling apart and then piecing yourself back together. Life is about learning from each other, growing through relationships, letting a person or a situation or an opportunity change the way you think and look at and react to the world around you. And of course that’s going to sometimes end in pain. Pain is an essential component of living – it’s not something we can choose to avoid. Telling someone “I don’t want to see you get hurt” is also telling them, “I don’t want to see you grow.” It’s telling them, “I don’t want you to feel love.” “I don’t want things to change for you.” “I don’t want your life to be a dynamic and continuous unfolding that teaches and inspires and ultimately strengthens you as a result of what you’ve been through.” Telling someone you don’t want to see them get hurt is telling them you do not want them to fully experience their lives… because you don’t want to witness their struggle.
