Quotes you live by


I had planned what I really wanted to talk about this week. It is all written out, beautifully so if I might add, but it is missing one special piece which I cannot go without. It is due to that special piece that we will table it for now; it shall remain hidden for later exposure.

I wish to treat this post like an interval and an activity that I would like for everyone to participate it. If you are reading this, you are already in! I will not police anyone, but I hope that as young adults, you can hold yourself accountable to completing the activity, or risk breaking my heart.


I have a thing for quotes. I feel like there is a quote for literally everything and anything. Either that or literally anything can be quoted and used to support a statement – a movie, a song, a book, someone famous, someone not famous. People even quote themselves, I assume it brings a sense of establishment “Yeah, I sound freaking awesome” – Gugu, get my point.

We all have used quotes for various reasons such as: To justify. To substantiate. To make our high school speeches sound dope (been there, especially as either an opening or closing to the argument, extra points if it was said by Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King). Sometimes we live by them to help us define who we are. And that’s the activity!! Simple actually.

Tell me who you are by a quote that best describes you and/or what you stand for. You may quote anyone, including yourself but it must be in the comments section below. Scroll all the way down till you see this ‘Leave a Reply’ box

and tell me who you are in a quote.


I look forward to knowing you😄. Remember, it is like the Mafia😉

P.S. I would like to share some quotes on my Instagram page so you are welcome to add your handle if you want to be tagged.

Thank you in advance for participating!

  1. “I hope to arrive to my death late, in love and a little drunk! – Atticus

    “Late” Well I’d hope people around me would have the decency to take the time to make me look good. Lashes; brows and all.
    “In Love” I believe we all deserve to give and receive love in our lifetime. Family. Friends. Partners. Most importantly thy self.
    “Little Drunk” pre-gaming for my welcome party in heaven for me. Lol well I hope that’s where I’ll end up.

  3. “Like the air you can
    Rise from the rubble with your mind, you can hover
    You can rise like the tide, like the heat it in the summer
    Yes, I know there are those who will wanna bring you down
    But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud.” – Selena Gomez

  4. “How you do anything is how you do everything”

    I never had a quote until I met my fiance. This is the quote he lives by and because I look up to him I also adapted the same quote. I don’t know the origin of the quote.. it’s pretty self explanatory, but this is how I translate it – there must be a certain level of consistency in all areas of your life. It should be know that if they ask Gugu to do something, even if it’s outside her area of expertise, she will give it everything because that’s how she does everything.
