5 QUOTES ON OWNING YOUR LIFE

Five Things Friday ~ 5 Quotes on Owning Your Life and who you're becoming


FINDING YOURSELF AND YOUR LEGACY

This week I've been writing about creating a legacy and about Midlife being the time to change things up a gear or two. Time to own who you are as a person and to be authentic. Time to put yourself higher up the list of priorities and to accept any fallout that might come with changing things in your life.

Here are five quotes that I loved that speak to making yourself a priority and not tolerating judgement from others or pandering to the needs of people who don't support you as you move forward in life. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

#1 YOUR VOICE AND YOUR STORY

You have a voice, a mind, a story and a vision


#2 LIVING ON YOUR OWN TERMS

I'm going to live the way I want to live


#3 STOP SAYING YES TO PEOPLE

I've decided to stop saying Yes to people who don't support my wellbeing


#4 THIS IS ME DAMN IT!

You have to stand up and shout "this is me damn it!"


#5 I KNOW MY WORTH

I am a passionate and creative woman and I know my worth

    1. I'll be keeping an eye out for your post Sue - it's so important to see our own worth and uniqueness - a lot of us missed out on that for the first half of life so we need to make up for it now :)

    1. Thanks Diane and it's so true isn't it? We need to learn to treasure ourselves more (I know I'm guilty of not prioritizing myself as much as I deserve at times)

    1. I know what you mean Tricia - it's taken a long time for us to get to this point and I don't think we have time for anyone who doesn't support us do we?

  9. I love your quotes, Leanne. Another of my favorite quotes on this theme is an old Jonathan Winters quote. "If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to it.
