Daily Dose Monday (4)

Daily Dose Monday is a weekly meme inspired by Michelle’s Bookshelf where I hand-pick pictures and quotes that will help Mondays feel a little less blah, and a lot more inspired.

Happy New Year! I hope 2016 has amazing things in store for you. As for me, I did not make any concrete resolutions. It’s not that I don’t have anything to improve on, but more because when I previously made large, dashing goals for the new year, I was left exhausted and ultimately unfulfilled. We have a certain amount of control over how our lives go, but sometimes the waves simply do not sway in our favour. I did manage to narrow my focus to a couple of things in today’s post!

“I create entire romances in my dreams.” – Fyodor Dostoyevsky, White Nights

My main focus this year is working on my degree. It’s the one constant in my life that always serves to make me better – mentally and emotionally. Image Source

I spent so much of the past orchestrating the way my life needed to go and it got me nowhere. It’s time to stop the plotting and start living in whatever life is presenting. Image Source

Nobody will stop you from creating. Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. That is the way to make your soul grow – whether there is a market for it or not! The kick of creation is the act of creating, not anything that happens afterward. I would tell all of you watching this screen: Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. Make it as good as you can. Don’t show it to anybody. Put it where nobody will find it. And you will discover that you have your reward.” – Kurt Vonnegut

This week, I decided to share some pictures from my adventures these past few days. I recently visited the Toronto Christmas Market for the first time and loved it! I realize that I’m finding comfort in the little things this holiday season, versus the big get-togethers and such. Any holiday traditions you’re looking forward to this year? Let me know!

For just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there’s nothing else. It’s here, and you’d better decide to enjoy it or you’re going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever. – Lev Grossman
