Tag Archives: Inspiration Quotes


These quotes might seem melancholy, but I promise you they are the most uplifting. These quotes to me represent what it is to have an idea and step out of your comfort zone to see it to fruition. I have had many over the past three years and I have sought out each one and continue to fully. I use to think that you should focus solely on one idea and if it doesn’t “make it”, then you failed. But in the past six months, I would have to argue the complete opposite. We are programmed to believe that an idea is only a success if you bring it to life. I would disagree and say that by believing that, you limit yourself to that one idea and never are able to see the bigger picture or what path(s) that idea can bring you to that you didn’t even know existed. It’s kind of like a resume. You may have not thought that first job would have taught you anything, until you reached the fourth job four years later and had a bit more knowledge in a certain area because of that “one meaningless job” four years before.

My blog was the catalyst to me writing a book. That blog and book idea brought me to to creating an online startup. Even if my startup is not fully complete, that idea connected me to some amazing people that have become dear to me and have taught me so much. It’s important to also not limit your purpose and always keep an open mind so that those pathways can find their way to you. Here’s to a great weekend and hopefully many more inspiring ideas!

Come On

via Wolfcub

It has been a little over a month since I had stepped away from 8balloons and there is good reason to it. Typically, when I have stepped away for less then a week, I have always felt a little guilty. This time, it has been the longest I have gone since writing. In June I came up with another one of my crazy ideas, but this time I knew it was different. It was to create an app that could have only come to me from the love I have for my online community and blog. I knew I could bring it to fruition, which is exactly what I have been working on ever since. I cannot wait to share this creation with you, since it is because of this blog and readers I created it. There are many exciting parts to this idea that I will be sharing soon. For now, my inspiration is to continue to create, and these quotes have helped me along the way. I hope they can inspire you as well! (more…)

It’s the beginning of the week but more importantly, today is the beginning to whatever you choose to aspire to be or create. In the last few weeks I have come to realize the word create relates to so much more than just art and tangible materials, but also to how you choose to live your life and what you want to become. Life can feel daunting sometimes and especially when you feel as though there is no door to walk through to live an inspired life. We sometimes can go through days, weeks, months, and even years of no change, which can make us feel defeated. However, I promise you this does not mean change is not possible. It only takes one thought, just one though of what you want to create more of in your life to make one aspect change. With that one positive creation, many more will start to follow. It is always the first change that is the most difficult. When you decide on what you want to create more of in your life, the to-do list for it will start to emerge, thus making it feel achievable.

The Best of Us

Any quote in general is fun for me to read, but today I particularly gravitated towards the theme of “change”. Sometimes I look at these beautiful words and images but don’t see their true meaning-either I’m in too much of a hurry or the quote doesn’t align with my mood at that moment. But then other times I realize how truly inspirational they can be if you just pay attention. One quote can touch your heart and set you straight again if you allow it to. I wish you all a great rest of the day and hope you gain as much from these quotes as I have today.
