This week has been a bit of a glum week for me. Every now and then we get into these negative mindsets and they can be really tricky to get out of! I won’t lie and say it’s rare I’m ever feeling down. Sometimes life can be overwhelming and it affects me more than I’d like to admit. I always get stuck feeling like ‘Why me?’ ‘What did I do wrong?’. Whenever I am feeling like this I love to look at positive quotes. I look for ones I can relate to and sooner or later I start to realise that people are right.
My quote this week is this:
“It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses, we must plant more roses.”
― George Eliot
I think it means that good things don’t just happen. We have to make them happen and if we want more happiness then we have to make more happiness for ourselves. Because unlike rain, which we have no control of, we have control of how happy we are. That is my interpretation anyway.
It’s not all bad. Besides; roses wouldn’t grow without a little bit of rain.
