Hi ANC readers! Alyssa from The Glossy Life here. When Ashley invited me to share my words of wisdom on her blog, I was thrilled. I’m a big “mantra” person–I rely on them to pep me up, calm me down and set me on the right path. It was hard to narrow down my words of wisdom to one phrase–I’ve been so inspired by different quotes over the years–but I finally landed on this Jack Kerouac quote, knowing it really summed up my life philosophy well.
“Be in love with your life. Every minute of it.” Easier said then done, right? We all have the tough days–the days where we need a cry, or wonder whether or not we’re on the right path, doing the right thing, loving the right people. There’s always that worry, or that lingering sadness that plagues us. We’re human–it’s only natural. But I’m a perpetually happy person–a person who believes that what you put out into the world, finds you again eventually.
To me, to wallow is a waste of energy. I allow myself to have my sad days, my hard days, but then I pick up and move forward, knowing how lucky I am to lead the life I do, surrounded by the people I am. A life well led is one filled with happiness, love, kindness and grace, even when things get you down. So my words of wisdom: project that, and before you know it you’ll be loving life. Every. Single. Minute.
