I don’t know about you but there’s something about quotes that really inspire me. I put them up on my Instagram not only for aesthetics reasons but because I like spreading positive vibes. An interesting idea is to find pictures of them on Pinterest, print them out and pop them at your desk at work, next to your bed or as the wallpaper on your phone.

Here are 5 of my fav quotes that I hope would inspire you today.
1. “Life is a journey, not a destination”
With all the challenges and stress of life , we often get caught up in hitting deadlines and going places that we forget life happens in the “in-between”. Next time you’re stressing about that huge project, focus more on the work you’re doing, see what you can learn from it. Or when you’re next traveling someplace, focus a little less on the destination and experience the journey more – literally!
2. “Don’t call it a dream – call it a plan”
There is nothing wrong with dreaming. It’s always fantastic to have those big dreams for your life. Okay, sometimes they’re a little bit unrealistic. But for those attainable dreams (becoming a successful blogger,buying a house/apartment , finding love, getting your dream job) it’s time to stop dreaming and start planning! Dreams can become reality as long as you take the first step to figuring out how to make them your reality.
3. “The world is filled with nice people – if you can’t find one, be one”
Yes, it’s true. There are lots of lovely people in the world but sometimes it’s like you can’t find a single one! Finding yourself in an environment filled with dropkicks can be a little disheartening. But if you’re not able or willing to move out of that environment, being the kindest version of yourself you can be is the next best thing. Basically, you’ll be putting up a mirror to everyone else – and it might just encourage them to be a little kinder too. Spread the love .
4. “You are what you’ll do, not what you say”
Truer words never were spoken. It’s akin to “actions speak louder than words” and it’s a pretty big one. Talk is so cheap and it’s easy to say everything under the sun you know the person you’re talking to wants to hear. But to really mend a relationship or prove to your boss that you deserve that promotion or raise, you have to actually show it through your behaviour and actions not just your verbal promises.
5. “Dress like you’ve made something of yourself in this world, even if you haven’t”
First impressions count. And try as hard as you want, people will never notice your supreme intellect before they notice your worn out shoes, it’s just a fact of life. It would be great if we were all judged on our intangible qualities but we aren’t – we’re judged constantly on how we look. So, instead of looking down your nose at the shallower people in this world, work it to your advantage. Lay out your clothes the night before, wake up 10 minutes earlier to fix your hair and makeup. Even if your clothes are just high street pieces, ironing them and making sure they’re free of any lint goes a long way towards making you look better. And hey, if you really want to splurge on designers then be my guest, as long as that makes you happy.
In other news, I finally decided to try out the Mule trend. Some call them slip-on shoes but I refer to them as mules. The design on these ones is what mainly made me buy them. I don’t own any shoes with such a design so it was me trying something new. I paired the look with an embroidered shirt – I am kinda loving embroidered shirts as seen in my most recent post here. I think I might own like three similar ones lol. This look is pretty chilled as you can see but I love that its still street style worthy and trendy too. Hope you had a lovely weekend.
Whats your take on the Mules Trend? Do you own a pair?
