This year has been an awesome experience writing this blog and sharing my encouragement and inspirations with all you readers and followers. I thought that doing this blog was more of a forced school assignment, but I have grown to love it. I am even inspired and encouraged by the quotes that I find and put in my blog posts. To wrap up this amazing rookie year of blogging, I want to share my final takes on three of the quotes that I have found that have really inspired me this sophomore year of high school.
When I first started this blog, I tried to think of personal experiences that would inspire people. It was so hard because I didn’t want to tell of all my flaws and how I’ve fixed them. Flaws are just embarrassing! But I posted of my flaws anyway like how stressed out I got and how much I would cry over the death of a loved one and people responded so positively to them. This quote explains pretty much my whole blogging experience in two sentences. You honestly don’t have to be perfect to encourage and inspire others, you just have to be able to be open about how you fail and about your imperfections and it will give others the example to follow.
This quote from my English teacher continues to inspire me so much. Especially right now since it’s the other time of the year where every high school students starts to worry, panic and stress out about their finals. It just reminds me that I really do care about school and my grades and even though I’m nervous about borderline grades and everything, it’s okay because it just shows how much I care.
Most of the quotes that I find are from anonymous people and those are so inspiring. It’s from an author named H. Jackson Brown Jr. whose book is right above his picture. He has come up with 511 suggestions on how you can be more joyful and happy. This quote has 5 things in that book but they are so small that we feel that we can’t sacrifice our time in order to do them. What if today was your last day, you would never be able to do that small joy again because you thought it was too minor? Especially for me while I’m doing all my homework and studying, I take a break and go on social media instead of going outside and taking in the fresh air. This quote has helped me to learn to always make time for the little joys in life instead of passing them by.
I hope these quotes are encouraging and inspiring to you too. If you ever need all of them in one spot, there is a place. Feel free to look at them and draw as much inspiration as you need.
This is Kayleen signing off for a first successful year of encouraging, uplifting, and inspiring.
