First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
We love this quote. It's so simple and it goes along with one of our core values here at The Violet: We believe in being the people we're meant to be. The potential for happiness in our lives is endless. But we do have to be willing to put in the work and make the necessary changes. Don't give the slightest crap what anyone has to say about it - just say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do...
P.S. a great source for quotes of all kinds, should you ever need a bit of inspiration.
