thursday’s thought

to thine own self be true_life in blush thursdays thought

Each one of us has 24 hours in a day to feel the sweetest moments of joy or the most heart-wrenching periods of sorrow; to relish in the greatest moments of triumph or to find yourself looking deep within for the courage to come back from utter failure. But no matter what those 24 hours bring if, at the end of the day, you can look in the mirror and know you were not a prisoner of someone else’s expectations then you will have lived 24 more hours towards becoming the person you’re meant to be.

I had a friend come into my life when I needed her the most and in my moments of self-doubt will find her saying to me “to thine own self be true.” -which is logic I can hardly argue with. Your life is better spent chasing the experiences and moments that make you the happiest because who’s there at the very end but you? And if you can feel you lived a life worth remembering then you’ll never waste another moment caring what others think.

  • So true, we can sometimes be so caught up in trying to please others, that we can forget what we truly want and will make us feel happy. What others say isn’t going to change you, unless you give it the power to. I think we have all faced self doubt in our lives and this quote is a nice reminder of what really matters.

    • Exactly! It’s another quote I have in the front of my journal as a daily reminder to never forget what’s really important 🙂 Have a great day Megan! xx
