What a beautiful quote for the month of October which is Mental Health awareness month. We all go through challenges and this quote is a reminder on how we can be and deal with any circumstances.

REFLECT: When times get tough, do you let the challenges affect you or do find ways to get through the times?
RESPOND: What will you do today to apply this quote?
INTEGRATE: Any time things don’t go as planned, take a pause and remind yourself on how can be strong and get through the tough times!

The same boiling water that softens the potato, hardens the egg. It’s what you’re made of. Not the circumstances.


Hi everyone! Before i get started talking to you about some positivity, I hope you are having a great day! I have been thinking about yesterday’s post and how someone reading this, maybe you, could need a little extra push to comfort themselves. You are amazing, smart, awesome, and anyone who tells you otherwise doesn’t know enough about you!

About the Author of Quote: Unknown

Today’s quote is by an unknown author. I like this quote a lot. Sometimes when talking to others we compare our situations to others saying, “oh wow I could have never done that,” or “Pffft! That is so easy I don’t know how they weren’t able to do it right! Either way we should not compare ourselves and our circumstances to others.

The example that the quote gives is a good one. I actually like it a lot! When boiling a potato, it ends up soft right? Well when you boil an egg, it does the opposite! This is a good example that no matter what circumstance you end up in, you are not going to have the exact same outcome as someone all the time. 

My point to you is, don’t try to be like others. Or don’t base your good and bad off if you are the same as someone or not. You will regret it, as well as regret that you didn’t embrace yourself! There is no one in this world, universe, space, whatever the biggest place is, that is like you. Enjoy your time on this wonderful planet we call earth, and embrace your goods and bads!
