PR Samples: I was given pieces c/o Mo & Cho in exchange for styling.
Do you ever read something that hits you out of nowhere and completely changes your perspective on life? That happened to me a few days ago when I read a quote on Instagram that said: “you weren’t born to just pay the bills and die.” Woah. It was so simple but so profound. Lately, Dustin and I have been so focused on paying off debt, saving up money and making some big purchases. I didn’t realize that lately, my life has turned into the same predictable pattern of waking up, taking care of Rosie and Cooper, watching Netflix and making sure Dustin has a dinner to come home to. I’ve been too worried about my past and not focusing on the present or the future. But I read that quote and realized that I needed to change my life around. There is more to me and the life I have then just going through the motions, paying the bills, and dying! I want to be deserving of my second chance at life, and I want to live it as vibrantly as possible. So, I rounded up 20 inspiring quotes today to share that I hope will encourage and inspire you to live a vibrant life as well.
Also, I got to collaborate with the AMAZINGLY talented Whitney Majors and am so impressed with her skill behind the lens. Also, I just adore her in general. Make sure you check out her Facebook Page here!
Quotes to Inspire You to Live a Vibrant Life:
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist” -Oscar Wilde
“You weren’t born to just pay the bills and die.”
“Cherish the solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.” -Even Ensler
“The world is too big to stay in just one place and life is too short to do just one thing.”
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”
“Live in the moment and make life so beautiful that it will be worth remembering”
“It is in all of us to defy expectations, to go into the world and be brave, and to want, to need, to hunger for adventure, to embrace change and chance and risk, so that we may breathe and know what it is like to be free”
“Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you when you start imprinting your intent on the universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence.”
“Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor” -Rumi
“We’re all susceptible to it, the dread and anxiety of not knowing what’s coming. It’s pointless in the end, because all the worrying and the making of plans for things that could or could not happen, it only makes things worse. So walk your dog or take a nap. Just whatever you do, stop worrying. Because the only cure for paranoia is to be here, just as you are.”
“Don’t compare your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 15. Follow your own path, write your own life story, and never give up on yourself.”
“To me, a rich and satisfying life means one full of contrast. Give me sleep ins. And soft rains. Coffee shops and conversations. But also adrenaline and adventure. And drunken bellows to the stars. I am determined to embrace this extravagant life for all that it has to offer.”
“At any given moment, you have the power to say: this is not how my story is going to end.”
” He said ‘One life on this earth is all we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.'” -Frederick Buechner
“Every morning you have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them.”
“Maybe life isn’t about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it’s about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it.”
“So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.”
“For what it’s worth, it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald.
“None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after-thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth you are carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.” -Nanea Hoffman
