Quotes To Live By

Quote #68: Julia Kepler

"Hi, I'm Julia , owner of Serendipity Road and Joyful Tantrum and member of the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition. A quote that causes reflection of self is “When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead.” said by Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother The reason I find this quote so reflective is a reminder that what you’re feeling right now is only temporary and refocuses me on awesomeness. Though I have not watched one minute of How I Met Your Mother, I can remember the day so clearly as I got on my laptop to do something and that quote popped up. This quote hit me like a ton of bricks. It was at a time of great struggle in my life and I was sitting in the muck of it for far too long. That choosing sad over awesome was a choice so what was I going to choose? This quote supports my wellbeing by recognizing I can choose to Be Awesome instead even on the hardest of days. So, what negative feeling are you hanging on to for far too long that you could let go of or can you create a mantra to yourself in the moment that allows you set negative feelings aside to revisit later so you can show up as your best self? This has been brought to you by the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition's Quotes to Live By Series. Be Awesome, Julia "
