What is Your Favorite Quote, and Why?

I adore quotes, I love that words and sentences can come together with a very powerful message for the reader.

Many times, I find that when I read a quote, I can relate to it. The message will remind me where I came from and how far I have come. There is often a major life lesson within these beautiful works of art.

One of My Favorites

I have several quotes that are my favorites, however one in particular sticks out in my mind because of how much I can relate to it.

“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because her trust is not in the branch, but her own wings. Believe in yourself.” – Charlie Wardle

My Past

I have never been the confident type. Thankfully this doesn’t show much on the outside, but on the inside, I have always struggled with self-esteem. I have always felt like an outsider despite others not seeing me this way.

I was always the person that wanted to know every single detail before I committed to something. My anxiety got the best of me many times and prevented me from branching out and living a full life.

Today

I still deal with a great amount of anxiety daily, however, I have learned tips and tricks to help me function better in everyday life and my relationships with others.

My confidence is up and down, but I have more days that I believe in myself and my strengths. I am trying my hardest to look at the trials in my life as lessons that will help me reach this goal. I am being proactive about it now versus sweeping my issues under the rug.

How This Quote Has Impacted Me

Over the years, I have done a better job of placing trust in myself instead of waiting for life’s circumstances to be perfect…something that it will never be!

I try my best not to place trust in others to build me up and instead look inward to find that strength. I strive every day to believe in myself like this little bird who is confident enough to trust itself instead of the branch on which it stands.
