9 Ethical Gift Ideas

Words to Live By

Sometimes in life we get so caught up going from one thing to the next, we don’t give ourselves the time we need to reflect. I think it is important to have a few key ideas to live by. These may be film quotes, song lyrics, or even an inspirational quote with a meaningful background on Instagram.

Yes, it’s cheesy.. but I tend to find most things are better with a sprinkling of cheese!

This way, if you are ever unsure about what to do, you can look to these words for guidance.

These have helped me so far;

If you are unhappy,  do something about it. If something isn’t right, then fix it! You only get one chance at life, so crack on! Don’t waste years being unhappy. Believe in yourself and get what you want. If you’re in a depressing job that you hate then quit, if you’re in a relationship that doesn’t fill you with joy then leave. It can seem scary, and maybe you’re worried about the consequences, but don’t worry, because things can only get better! Stand up for yourself, future you will thank you for it.

We’re all so busy waiting for the next stage in our lives that its easy to forget to appreciate what we already have.

If you keep waiting for happiness it may never come. Live for the moment, and be grateful for what you do have.
