This round of The Best Of We Heart It posts are inspired by a health kick, a fetish for bright colours, and an eye for something unusual.
Following on from what I said in part 1 of this post, which you can go and have a read of HERE, the start of July really wasn’t a great time for me. I just felt so overwhelmed about all this work that I had to do, and how I was going to do it all in the time. I’m generally a person that get’s very overwhelmed very easily, and I think that in future I need to plan out my time more easily, so that I will never get stuck in that situation again! In case you’re wondering, I did manage to get all my work done, eventually, and hopefully all my hard work and stress pays off.
However, there was definitely light at the end of the tunnel. As soon as the summer holidays hit, I was on a serious chill out session and I almost felt free again. Obviously, no one forces you to do anything, but if you want to do well and get good results, then you need to do what they ask of you and really knuckle down. However, sometimes you need to think about yourself and your feelings, and put school in second priority.
July wasn’t all about stress and being overwhelmed, because during the second part of July I started to enjoy my life again. I spent a lot of time with my family and my mum, just catching up and having some quality time, as well as doing some serious shopping. I also spent time doing a few things that have been on my to-do list for ages, which is always a great thing. Sometimes life is so busy, that simple things that you need to do, get neglected to satisfy things that are on a time schedule.
The moral of this story is, that there always has to be a low before a high. This seems to be a quote that is appearing quite a lot in my life lately.
Considering all the low parts of my life during July, I needed some magical words of inspiration and encouragement to get me through, which all came from my good old friend We Heart It. So, without further ado, here is my favourite quotes that I “hearted” throughout July.
My Absolute Favourite
I think it has to be the second to last quote, “Find joy in the ordinary”! I think the reason why I love this quote is because of how relevant and real it is. After the whole stressful start to July, the small and ordinary things in life made me so happy, and I think it’s really made me evaluate how we all take the simple and ordinary parts of life for granted. Life is an unknown journey, but we need to enjoy every part of it and follow the ride.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s round up of my favourite quotes and pictures from we heart it, as well as a little insight into my life during july.
