Happy first ever Momentum Monday! I am someone who absolutely loves motivational quotes, easily getting lost on Pinterest for hours just scrolling through quote pages. In fact, one of my tried and true ways of staying motivated throughout the week is setting a quote image as the wallpaper on my phone. That way every time I open my phone I have a quick motivational reminder.
With that, I’ve decided that every Monday I am going to give you a little momentum for your week by creating a phone wallpaper and talking about why I have been enjoying that quote. Feel free to save the above photo to your phone and set it as your background!
“Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again.” – Susanne Collins.
Today is my last Monday of college classes before finals week and winter break is right around the corner! As every day passes, I realize that this break will likely be the last time I have 4 consecutive weeks off to relax with my family. With that in mind, as I was looking through quotes this one really stood out to me.
Honestly, this quote always gets me. It’s ON POINT. I’ll never be in this moment again. Tomorrow I’ll be one day closer to 22 and my younger yesterday will forever be behind me. & while some of you are hating me for reminding you that you are getting older – don’t worry I’m all for celebrating your 21st birthday anniversary for the rest of your life 🙂 – I love this quote because it reminds me of never welcoming regret into my life. There are some things -like a 4-week long winter break- that I can do now that I know I won’t be able to do 10 years from now when I (hopefully) have a steady job and family at home. And instead of looking back at my life and wishing I took advantage of my free time this quote reminds me to do it now!
As I set this quote to my phone background, I am hopeful that the next time I am lazily sitting on the couch watching Netflix or mindlessly walking through the motions of my life I will see this quote and get up and do something different. Although without a doubt there are times when we just need to relax, its important that we are cognizant of the time we are spending with our eyes glued to our phones or TVs. So stop waiting! Do something different than you did yesterday. Think back to all the times you told yourself “that would be cool if I could….” and go do it! Or at least learn how to get there! This is your life so take a chance and LIVE IT! “Today is the oldest you’ll ever be and the youngest you’ll ever be again!”
P.S. Check out my cousin’s Youtube channel! She is vlogging her experience abroad right now and let me use her picture to create the Greece wallpaper background 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTDDWfjnrJJqZKcJuYubIOA
