I was looking for a website to gain inspiration from. I happened to stumble upon one of the alumni’s websites, and I found a blog about a quote that inspired you. She discussed her favorite quote here.

She talked about hers being from her Female Fatale character, Julia James! She talked about how she realizes that she is the one who will get to her success. There is no need for intimidation from others. I actually am interested in reading the book is was from.

I think this interested me because this one quote really hit me hard.

“If you are still looking for that one person who will change your life, take a look in the mirror.”

This really hit me hard because the main person I need to make things happen is me. I am my own potential. I have been here all along. I cannot wait until an opportunity arises. I have to do it myself. I have to be content with who I am, so I can do the best I can. I cannot make excuses. I cannot blame someone else right now.

I just have to believe in me.

One thought on “When Something Hits You”

  1. When you look in the mirror, try the following queries: among the things that happened today or the past few days what made you feel happy, satisfied, at peace, content? What disturbed you or made you less happy? We each hold the information we need to help us decide what steps to take next and we reserve the right not to know the answer right away. You absolutely are entitled to exist as you are: thinking, searching, knowing, not knowing, being certain, not being certain, falling, getting up etcetera etcetera. And you are absolutely loved and treasured the way you are.
