Positive F*%#ing Talk

I have a secret love of inspirational and funny memes on social media. I try to not post them because thats not the look I am going for, and I admit I have banned friends because they post too many memes of rainbows and kittens with happy sayings. But really sometimes they do say exactly what I need to hear with the perfect picture. I’ve tried to create my own using quotes I like, with my own pictures but it doesn’t work out quite as nice.

I will also admit that I have a collection of inspirational memes that all contain the F-bomb. For some reason there are days when they just work so much better then other ones. I don’t usually use that word when I’m speaking so maybe the forbidden nature of it tickles my funny bone when I’m feeling down. I have one brother who enjoys trading these gems with me in texts whenever we find a good one.

My natural tendency isn’t to talk very nice to myself. I tend to have a lot of negative talk in my head actually. I have put up nice pictures with inspirational saying where I can see them and I started an anonymous ¬†Instagram account to post all those memes I can’t post on my regular account lol. I read one today that had a quote from the book, “The Secret.” It says;

This is your life, and it’s been waiting for you to discover it. Up until now you may have been thinking that life is hard and a struggle, and so by the law of attraction you will have experienced life as hard and a struggle. Begin right now to shout to the universe, “Life is so good! All good things come to me!”

I’ve been trying it for a day now, I’m not saying I’m prepared to go buy the book and learn all the secrets but it was a well timed reminder. After all my very good friend likes to remind me I have a great life. Yes I’m going through hard things but it’s life great!

I hope you have the strength to start over

I was going to write a post on my thoughts about a quote I saw today that was attributed to F. Scott Fitzgerald;

I thought it a beautiful sentiment that gives me courage as I’m on my new adventure. Some days I feel like I jumped off the cliff into an abyss. But it’s not a dark scary place, its a place with lots of light and hope. Yes it’s scary, I am still looking for a job and ways to support myself. I want to use this time not to trap myself in a job that makes me unhappy for then what was it all for? I want to find my passion, have adventure, explore, love. Don’t we all? But I’ve done more then think about it, I leapt into the abyss.

Anyway so while I was researching the quote above I found a blog that suggests it wasn’t even him that wrote it! And that leads to the beautiful quote from the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and I love what the character played by Brad Pitt has to say,¬†And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

If you want to read the article about the misquote it’s entertaining, and happily shows that I am not the only one to fall in love with misquotes online!¬†“The Curious Case of Misquotation”
