2019 has been a really interesting year for me. So much has happened in an insanely short space of time and I’m having to make decisions that scare me about my career and my future. Of course, I’m excited but at the same time putting yourself out there and taking the next step can be daunting.
I fully understand that positive quotes can be a little cringeworthy but if nothing else they help you to realise how many people have made similar choices before you. That, and how going for what you want is always a good idea. So in the spirit of inspiring you to make your own major changes here are a few of my favourites.
“No matter how heavy the memories fall upon your heart, no matter what has come together or what was torn apart, there’s still a reason that you made it this far, and how, after everything that happened you are blooming as you are”
“Mistakes are expected, respected and corrected”
“If you’re making a decision that requires courage, take your advice only from those who are courageous. They will help you see your fears as what they really are – beautiful opportunities to bloom”

“To all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world, to pursue and achieve your dreams”
– Hillary Clinton
“Be so fucking committed to what’s best for your heart that you’re willing to sit through the most uncomfortable pain of growth and change, that you refuse to accept anything less than complete love and alignment”
“It’s impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default”
– JK Rowling
“I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow”
– Marissa Mayer
“You’re never going to be 100% ready and it’s never going to be just the right time, but that’s the point. It means that every moment is also the right moment. If you want it, you just have to do it”
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
“In moments of doubt, I told myself firmly: If not me, who? If not now, when?”
“I began to realise how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good”
“You don’t have to know where you’re going to be headed in the right direction”
“Well-behaved women seldom make history”
– Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending”
“The secret to self-confidence isn’t to stop caring what people think, it’s to start caring about what you think. It’s to make your opinion of you more important than anyone else’s”
