I am a quote whore. That might seem extreme but I seriously am. A quote can move me so much that I encorporate it into daily conversations as if they were my own words. But I always wanna give credit where credit is due hence this list. Few things can impact me so simply then a solid quote. Some rule my life, some help me get a point across and others are mantras for how I approach each day. I have hundreds of them saved… on my desk top, on sticky notes, in my head. Below are 5 quotes I am L-O-V-I-N-G right now. Take one for yourself if one makes you feel something special. I truly hope these quotes inspire you as much as they do me. AND since this is a food blog, lol, below is a recipe for some insanely good vegan chocolate truffles I made for my boyfriend that made him go WOW and that made my heart so full.
“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”
This is an Ayurvedic proverb. It sums up my entire wellness philosophy in two sentances. I couldn’t be more laconic or eloquent even if I tried.
“Success without fullfillment is the ultimate failure”
Tony Robbins dropping some major truth. As an entreprenuer and total type A, I am all about accomplishment but I regularly repeat this to myself to remind me to practice gratitude, generosity and celebrate each day. And to keep me in check… life isn’t all about money, followers or “likes.”
“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”
This quote is often the push I need to speak up. Thank you Tim Ferris for this little nugget of inspo. I reuse it all the time.
“Why worry? What is meant for you is always meant to find you. —Indian poet-saint Lalleshwari”
This is from one of my all time favorite books Outrageous Openness by Tosha Silver. If you are at all feeling lost, confused or directionless in your life (which is how I felt just last year) this book is for you. It changed my life.
“When they go low, we go high”
I am by no means trying to get political on you but this quote from Michelle Obama is really a great way to deal with any type of adversity with other people. Although I am not perfect and can get crazy in the moment, if someone upsets me I’ll do my best take a step back, inhale a couple big breaths and repeat this as a mantra before responding.
Ok Ok! On to the food. But really, I do hope you liked those quotes.
