What would a list of quotes be without some Dumbledore?

I admit that I often have problems focusing too much on what I want to happen or what I want to accomplish and not doing anything to make those things happen. I lose myself in the future and forget to exist in the present, and then the things I was dreaming about never become reality. I’ve been pushing myself to do less dreaming and more living lately, and it’s incredibly rewarding, but it’s still hard to go from thinking to doing sometimes.

I find that it helps when I have others pushing me to succeed. I started this blog to get me out of an anxiety/depression funk because it was affecting my personal relationships, and those who were affected made it known that a change was needed. I focused harder on my schooling and obtained two Bachelor’s degrees when I graduated because I had teachers who were tough graders and knew I could do better. I became a published author because it was a requirement for my writing class to submit a story for publication. And I’m glad for all of that, because now I’ve accomplished so many things that I’m proud of, and I know that I can accomplish more in the future.

(A note on the writing portion: I recently found a website that sends weekly prompts and rewards the best story with $50 and a featured spot on their blog. There are also other writing contests you can enter on the site. It does wonders for motivation, so if you’re a writer and you’re interested in checking it out, the website is called Reedsy.)

  1. Dumbledore knows his business ❤ I'm really glad you managed to push yourself to do these things even though anxiety was eating you up. I kind of gave up on everything except my bf and my job, but lately I'm also trying to live my life the way I want it. I was constantly making plans but never actually doing anything, but now I've decided it's enough, and next month I'm traveling to my dream city 🙂 We can do it! ❤

    1. Right?? There are so many good quotes from him. Ten points to Dumbledore!

      Ugh, it’s been hard, believe me. I’m glad you’ve decided to make a change! You’re supposed to run your life, not the other way around. And you’re going to your dream city?? That’s awesome! Which city is it?

      1. Yes! I have a huge word document with literally everything he ever said haha and I’ll use many for my quote of the day posts. 😀

        And yes again! I was so afraid to travel again (last time was end of 2016) and kept delaying, but I realized I can’t recover by sitting in front of my laptop looking at images of people traveling. :/ It’s Bruges, Belgium, I fell in love with it when I watched one of my favorite movies for the first time – In Bruges. I’ve watched it 10+ times since and I’m always dreaming about going there, and now I really am ❤

      3. I write everything down haha, sometimes twice because I forgot I wrote it down 😀

        REALLY??!! Ahhhh!!!! ❤ Of course I will post about it hahaha, probably once a day 😀 Sadly it's only 1 day in Bruges, that's the only option I found in the travel agency, the rest is Brussels, and Amsterdam, Munich and Prague, lol I'm literally going on a tour of the best beer and fries in the world 😀

      4. I’ll send you a postcard 😀 Ahh I can’t wait to live the adventures, I’m probably gonna get sick from all the fries, chocolate, stroopwafels and beer 😀 It’s the last week of April, with Amsterdam trip happening on the King’s day which is the craziest city event/parade I’ve ever witnessed, can’t wait to see it again! 🙂

  2. Dumbledore and his quotes! I especially love the one he has about happiness: Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light.

    So proud that you got through all that and achieved so much, you do you!
