Wise Words From The Internet

On days like today, where it is all rainy and cloudy, where I don't have to go to work, I often sit by the fire, curled up under a blanket with coffee, watching Netflix while simultaneously scrolling the internet. Usually I am online shopping, sometimes I am planning my next vacation, often I am planning my school schedule and calculating how much longer until I graduate, I will even search for new jobs. However, the thing I do most often is scroll pinterest for quote pins to repin because what else would a twenty year old do?

I usually do this because I am unsure how I am feeling in that moment. I am often sitting with my own thoughts, analyzing my future, deciding on my career path. Usually I am overcome with stress, with anxiety, or with doubts of if I chose the right path. Wanting to be a sports broadcaster is hard work and very competitive, I no doubt am capable of achieving it, but sometimes I have doubts. On days like today, those doubts swirl around in my brain. This is when I turn to the internet.

I go through different quotes to try to motivate myself. This is how I get through the days like today that I love so much. Reading quotes like "If it's both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it." shows that I am definitely going down the path I should be in my career. It reminds me that it is both terrifying, but also amazing. Quotes like "Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters don't have a title until much later." remind me that uncertainty is okay to have in your life. It means that you are following your dreams.

The internet, specifically pinterest, gives me the wise words I live by. It will continue to give me the advice I search for when I am in doubt of my future and where I am going.

The internet gave me the motto I use to motivate me in my life when in doubt of where to go. It's time to start living.

Do you scroll the internet for advice quotes?
