Three Days, Three Quotes: Day 2 (Round 2!)

I am behind… again. I am going to blame mid-terms for this one entirely. I am in a Global Business Management class right now and whehw it is a doozy if there ever was one.

In any case, here we are with Quote #2!

I was nominated again for this amazing challenge by Cloud and Sunshine! I only recently found her blog and it is full of fantastic, relatable content. Definitely give her a visit if you haven’t already!

Personally this is one of my favorite challenges which is why I happily accepted the nomination despite having just finished one. Sharing quotes with people makes me happy and I like to think that people enjoy reading them (considering how popular this challenge is right now!).

Rules of the Quote Challenge

1) Thank the person who nominated you

2) Write three consecutive quotes for three days (one quote per day)

3) Nominate three new bloggers each day for the challenge

“Don’t feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.” – Tamlin, Chapter 19, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I am rereading the Court of Thorns and Roses series in immense anticipation for the fourth book. If you haven’t read them and enjoy fantasy, I highly recommend it.

For so long, I didn’t write or paint or read or anything I enjoyed because I felt like I should be spending time with my fiance or cleaning or doing something “more productive”. This was in the furthest depths of my anxiety and depression spat. I felt so much guilt for doing things for myself that I just didn’t. It didn’t take long for this to make my mental situation worse. I wish I had found this book during that time so I could read this exact line.

If it brings you joy and doesn’t hurt anyone, do it. Do it until your eyes blur and your fingers ache. If your inner-critic tries to tell you how wasteful, useless, or selfish you are being tell your inner-critic Thanks for the input but I don’t need your opinion and keep doing that thing.

I am still not awesome at this. Even now, there are pings of guilt when I chose writing or reading over other things but I know now that I am better for it. I am happier for it.

Be happy. Do you.
