Weekend Quote: How would your life be different if…

5 Comments 1862 views

I’m trying to get here. I think I’m closer than I’ve ever have been before: 

“How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others”― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Normally I like to share a bit more for weekend quotes but that one is so good I want to let it stand on it’s own.

Think about it.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    This makes me wonder why we have evolved this way… What evolutionary advantage is gained by caring what other people think? I’m going to ponder that, too. – Kaki Bennett

    I think one of the advantages of being in my 50’s now is that I can see myself caring less and less what others think. I really cared when I was younger! At least that is something to look forward to girls!!

    I agree with you Laurie~My 50’s are about not worrying about others opinions~My opinion is the only one that matters to me~There is a sense of freedom at this age~

    That’s an awesome quote. I think my life would be tremendously different if I had been taught that principle as a child. Worrying about outside opinions kept me silent when I needed to speak up and that snowballed throughout my life. Now I’m morbidly obese from eating the feelings that I was afraid to voice. It’s a struggle trying to get these pounds off and even sometimes to realize that I’m stuffing my feelings down with food.
