Inspirational Quotes: Volume #6

My favorite quote this week is from C. S. Lewis:

“We are what we believe we are.”

We spend so much time making a face we present to the world, yet at the same time doubt ourself internally. So this week, take the time to intentionally decide who you want to be- not a filter online, or who you are expected to be by coworkers or friends.

For me, I know if I make the intention to be more present in the moment, patient with those around me, and kind to myself it makes a major difference in my week.

Cheers to the fresh week ahead loves!

    These are all great quotes – especially about gaining the world but forfeiting the soul. I live in Washington, DC and I feel like a LOT of our politicians are in danger of doing that!

      I lived in DC for years and totally understand where you are coming from!
