On A Word From The Wise #04

Finishing revision for the day is definitely one of the best feelings. After hours of learning I've walked into town, bought myself a drink and a flapjack and am just relaxing a bit. I think it's really important to get out and at least have a walk if I'm not up for a run (which I have seriously been slacking on recently) so I'm not cooped up all day every day. All this revising and not seeing my friends as much is making me a little more emotional than usual (thanks A Levels!) and so I thought it would be nice to share a word from the wise to try and stir some positive thinking. I haven't written one for a while so if you don't know the premise for these posts, you can find out more here.

I thought I'd change things up a bit and not only share a few quotes that I'm loving at the moment but also some songs. Isn't it such an amazing feeling when you hear a song and the lyrics just completely resonate with how you feel or really move you? It's happened less and less recently but I have fallen head over heels in love with these next two songs. The lyrics of both are just stunning and I honestly can't stop listening to them. It's got to that stage where I'm listening to them over and over and I know that it's going to get to the point where I'm sick of them but for the life of me I can't make myself stop! Definitely two to add to the all-time favourites list, that's for sure.

And of course, here are some quotes I'm also loving and that are keeping up my positivity :: 

"Sometimes you don't need words to say what's in your heart." - Ruth Ozeki

"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life." - W Somerset Maugham

"There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will." - Epictetus

I hope you're all having a lovely week and if not, remember that tomorrow's Friday and we've almost made it to the weekend, surely that's something to celebrate! xoxo
