Life is a reaction

It’s day 3 of my 3 days, 3 quotes challenge.

Tammy, thank you for nominating me for this challenge, I’ve really enjoyed it!

If you want to read the 3 quotes Tammy chose for her challenge, please visit her blog. You won’t be disappointed!

The rules for this challenge are:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Nominate three bloggers each day.

Like I mentioned in my previous posts, I love quotes! So to pick my favourite 3 was very difficult. I decided to choose them about what is important to me, the first was motherhood, the second was home and this final one is about life’s challenges.

Quote #3


We can’t avoid the things that life throws at us. There are good times and bad times and all of these are challenges. Life is tough! But tougher are the decisions and choices we make following these events. We can choose to stop… To give up… To be defeated… But then what is the point of life? How will we learn if we do not face difficulties? What do we expect to teach our children and our children’s children? Life is about picking yourself up, making yourself stronger and facing the world head on. When one door closes another door opens up, or you bang on that door until you break it down! You will have people to support you in this world but nobody can make things happen but you. Don’t waste your life, don’t be scared to live it. We have been gifted this life to live it so go ahead… REACT!

This is a great quote! I understand it is so easy to give up on things in life, to settle for what life has thrown your way. But instead, we need to look at everything as a new opportunity, a new direction. This is a quote I want my children to live by.


My final 3 nominees for this challenge are

  1. Blended Hope
  2. The baby and the Boardroom
  3. This breath of Fresh Air

If you accept this challenge, make sure to link your responses back to me. I can’t wait to read some more fabulous quotes.

Thank you all for reading. I’ve absolutely loved this challenge!

If I haven’t nominated you, I apologise, but please let me know if there’s a quote you live by – leave me a comment below.

Keep smiling!

  1. Decision making has always been the difficult part. True that. We can’t escape from it but definitely won’t be knocked out by it. 🙂
