Whether you are starting a new school or University, moving house or job, trying a new recipe, or moving to the other side of the world and completely starting a fresh, whatever it is, us as humans, are experiencing a vast number of new and exciting experiences and adventures every day; especially at this time of the year with Autumn quickly approaching, (even if it is just trying a new drink or autumnal lipstick shade which you haven’t tried before!)
In order to kick things off on a positive note from the start, I’m going to share some of my favourite motivational quotes with you below, (as I in particular are going to need a lot of motivation this year!).
I wish you all the best of luck for all the new adventures you are emarking on in the next coming weeks, or whether you have already started something that made you a little bit nervous, but at the same time excited, to begin with. I truly believe that if you approach each obstacle with a smile and a positive frame-of-mind or talk it through with someone you trust before tackling it, (the majority of the time) it will all work out well in the end, in one way or another.
Finally, say “YES!”- great things come when you do, and I have realised this already. A couple of years ago, I got offered an incredible opportunity to visit another completely different culture and live there, exploring it for a month. I was absolutely terrified and constantly complained that I didn’t want to go. However, when I did accept the opportunity and I returned from the trip, I had come back after just having just had the best experience of my life, wishing I could be back there, and it also helped to find and understand a bit more about myself along the way.
