Quotes to light up your November

cockatoos in Australia | Life After Elizabeth

Summer has officially begun in Sydney!

It felt like we had the longest winter ever. It didn’t rain for months causing a severe drought in most of the country. when October arrived and it rained nearly every single day. It was so nice to watch the plants get quenched and turn into bright, healthy shades of luminescent green. For that period of incessant rain, it felt like I was back in Vancouver. Every day the city had that beautiful after-rain smell. All I wanted to do was be at home, cozy and warm, watching movies, reading books and taking baths.

Spring barely had a chance to be seen. Summer arrived in full force and it feels like we got Sydney back. It was as if she went through a period of darkness and couldn’t find her way out. But something switched and here she is, radiant as ever.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes that filled me with inspiration. I hope they do the same for you!

– Eckhart Tolle

“Most people need love and acceptance much more than they need advice.”

– Bob Goff

"Most people need love and acceptance much more than they need advice."

“Don’t let it affect your life, just let it affect your art.”

– Brooke Hampton
