Recently one of my close friends started an Instagram Account called impulse_formula. One might as well think what’s a big deal in that. With every cell phone provider giving you GB’s of data for free, creating an Instagram account should be a child’s play. We live in an era where there are mere 500+ followers for a genuine MX champion and 3.7m followers for a rescued Siamese/Tabby Mix Nala Cat [No offense to Cat Lovers though]
When I asked her what’s the big deal about this account, her response was “I want to help people realize that you can get through tough times with the help of quotes”. Well, I was touched by her statement because that’s what she did to me a few months back. I was actually going through a very tough time, dealing with some broken relationships around me and had started feeling that I was inadequate in life.
It was then I received a call from her accidentally and she lifted me up in few minutes. She had received this quote from her role model. I think that’s what strong people do. They give you space to feel your vulnerability and also make you feel that you are a diamond. They fill you with hope and inspire you to push your limits and come out of your darkness soon.
I would like to mention the quote that she sent to me that day:
Each word in the above quote made a lot of sense to me. They took me back to those days when I was in much worse situation and how some powerful quotes had managed to keep my life from getting capsized. One might even debate…. do we even need those fancy words to overcome depression and sadness. My answer is yes. Words are powerful. There are times in our lives, when everything seems like going downhill. Your career, your private life, office environment, your family, finances everything going unplanned. During those times, one does not need sympathy from the outside world. All that he/she needs is some ray of hope in some form. Affirmations and quotes serve the exact purpose.
While many of us might feel that most of these quotes are all cheesy and too much verbose, I can vouch for the fact that some quotes are truly magical. They just lift you up and provide a totally new dimension to your thought process.
They can make you feel that whatever you are going through is normal and there is no need to panic. They can be excellent stress-busters. Quotes at times even act as an excellent spiritual guide when you are dealing with toxic people around you.
Inspiring quotes can help you push your limits. Like this video by Trey Canard – one of my favorite MX champions!
Quotes can heal your scars and bring a fresh perspective inside you.
Quotes can remind you of the journey that you have endured so far in your life.
Quotes bring back a thousand memories that you had forgotten over these years.
Quotes bring patience and clarity to your thoughts.
So, yes I believe that quotes can truly create a difference in all our lives. I wish my friend impulse_formula good luck in her new initiative to bring about a change in hundreds of lives around her. I request all you readers to go ahead and follow her. DM her or tag her with a favorite quote of yours so that it will help her spread the message to hundreds of people who might benefit from your quotes.
Thank you for reading!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend ahead!
