Quotespiration # 15: Meryl Streep

“I think the most liberating thing I did early on was to free myself from any concern with my looks as they pertained to my work.”

Meryl Streep (Award-winning Actress; holds the record for most Oscar nominations in Hollywood history)

You’ve got to let it go. It’s not about you, it’s about the character and the story. You can’t do them justice if you’re preoccupied with yourself and how you look. Sometimes easier said than done, I know.

There’s an unequivocal beauty in raw honesty.

Quotespiration # 13: George Burns

“Everything that goes up must come down. But there comes a time when not everything that’s down can come up.”

– George Burns (Award-winning Actor; one of the few entertainers whose career successfully spanned Vaudeville, film, radio and television)

Time is of the essence. If you’re going to pursue a dream, do it now while you’re still young and lively and daring! The rest can wait, they’re not going anywhere.

Quotespiration # 12: George Burns

“I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.”

– George Burns (Award-winning Actor; one of the few entertainers whose career successfully spanned Vaudeville, film, radio and television)

I know it’s not easy when you have to worry about bills, rent, mortgages, food on the table, tuition or class fees and societal expectations on top of all that but I truly believe with the right balance and determination, you CAN find a job you enjoy that provides you with all that and be able to support your dreams financially as well. Sleep is for the weak anyway…(says the girl who was a hibernating bear in her previous life) :).

Ask yourself this, “How much do I really want this?” and “Can I live a full, happy life if I don’t have it or stop pursuing my dream?” If you can live a fulfilled life without it or through other things, then by all means. At the end of the day you are the one who has to live with your decisions, so do what you can within your means and do what makes you happy.

Quotespiration # 8: Mark Twain

“20 years from now you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbour, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover.”

– Mark Twain (Author; Best known for penning “The Great American Novel”: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn)
