“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.” I love this quote. It reminds me to keep pushing because I will never get where I want to go by taking things that are handed to me. It is a reminder that something will always stand in my way. You always become a better person if you can overcome those obstacles.

I’m not one for inspirational quotes. I like learning from my own mistakes and most of the time, those quotes don’t inspire me. I found this blog post today called 25 Awesome Thoughts and I really liked it. The quotes here are inspirational but not like the average inspirational quotes you see daily. Not like the one above. These quotes are from people with a past that aren’t trying to inspire you. There are a few very moving quotes on this post and some disturbing ones. If you have time, check it out.
