Quote of the Day #5

I feel like I haven't written a QOTD post in a long time but I don't just want to post any old quote, I think quotes are personal and you have to be able to relate to them. I recently blogged about my battle with my anxiety and you can read more about it in my Time To Talk post. Around the same time I was having a mooch on Pinterest and came across this quote which my mum had pinned and stole it as I really like it. 

I don't like change. It's just something I prefer not to face and find life so much easier knowing what's going to happen. I like to have plans in place even though this is not always possible. But equally I want to change, I don't want to suffer with my anxiety to this level all my life. I know it's not something that will disappear overnight, or ever - it's always going to be a part of my life. 

It was only when I really thought about this quote that it gave me that extra little bit of motivation we sometimes need. There is no way I want to have exactly the same life in 10 years! Although I'm taking steps in the right direction, there's still a lot that can be improved and this has given me an extra little kick up the bum to make sure I stay on top of things. 

In 10 years I would love to have my own home, get married, have a baby, have a job that I am happy with and be in good health. Obviously there are lots of other things I would like but these are the main ones. I think it's crazy to think that this could all be possible and also that looking back 10 years I had only been at secondary school for 6 months! A lot can happen in 10 years and there is no reason to be afraid of change as change happens a lot of the time without us even realising. 

Here's to the next 10 years of changes, whether good or bad, things will work out for the best!

What do you think of this quote? Can any of you relate to it? Where would you like to be in 10 years time?



  1. Such a good quote! I may have to save it and remember it :) I'll be 28 in ten years and the thought of being stuck in the same rut in ten years that I'm in now is motivating enough to accept changes haha


    1. I definite think it's a good one to remember! Haha yeah I know exactly where you're coming from! X

  2. I love this quote. I've had anxiety now for 10 years; and I am obsessed with feeling 'safe', but I need to remember that being safe isn't being happy or growing or living.

    1. Oh gosh, I'm sorry to hear you've suffered for so long! But I know exactly how you feel, I'm exactly the same, I always have to feel 'safe' too! It's definitely time to change and live life to the full! X
