#QOTD #70: ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸผExcellence

Posting today’s quotes was inspired by many things, besides the quote itself


  • People always selling themselves short as an excuse not to be great.
  • To create hope that anything is possible if one puts their mind to it.
  • To highlight the importance of a great attitude.

And it reads:

Excellence is not a skill, it’s an attitude

~Ralph Marston

What does this mean?

Not only can it (excellence) not be taught by learning but rather practicing, it also means that it’s something you constantly do and give off. Whenever, wherever, however and with whomever!

There’s a huge difference between an “atti” and a skill

A skill, according to Google, is the ability to do something well. You’re only required to apply yourself for a specific time, when it is required.

An attitude is considered as a settled way of thinking or feeling about something. It is basically you, in every moment, good or bad. There’s no specific required time to flex your attitude like there is for a skill.

Thriving for excellence should be something we constantly aim to achieve with everything that we do. It shouldn’t only be applied, when required (:

Happy CHOOSEday! I choose excellence

#QOTD #38

I’m so excited for this quote of the day (QOTD) prompt that I’ve been doing. It’s one of THE most consistent prompts that I’ve kept up with. This and the #DFH prompt (dear future husband) you should go check those out (: 

Anyway, moving along onto today’s #QOTD 

Love is not just a verb, it’s you looking in the mirror.

~ Kendrick Lamar 

You got it! It’s from his ๐ŸŽถ colab with Drake: Poetic justice
I’ve always been drawn to these lyrics because I believe in its truth. I felt for some reason that it would be fitting for today’s #QOTD

Love is a doing word, I agree, but accepting and loving your self first is essential.

I say so, because only once you accept and love yourself, will you be comfortable with letting somebody else accept you and love you. 

Only when you accept and love yourself, will you be able to sincerely accept and love others.

Looking in the mirror, self reflecting and righting your wrongs is a form of love for yourself. So yes, love is a doing word but most importantly, 

Such a profound message in such a few words. Words have power people! 

Go on now, spread that love ๐Ÿ™‚

#DFH #45

Dear future husband,

All that I offer to you in these posts are things I’m going to do for you when we first meet, when we’re 40, 50 and 60. 

I will love you on the last day like I did the first , if not more. Kindly note that this includes my flaws too. So be prepared.

I will cook for you, declare my love in scribbles or on a plate. I will honour , appreciate and support you in all your endeavors. I promise to keep my smart mouth and fiesty attitude (giggles). 

I certainly hope that all the things I ask from you will be returned. I want you to know that even though I will freely love  you , I would still want you to earn my love everyday, like I would for you. I would not want you to get complacent. Because I will not become complacent. 

I would want to be your profile picture when I’m 50 like I would be  now. I want you to buy me flowers ‘coz it’s Wednesday when we’re retired, like I would want it when you send them to me at work in our courting days. I would want love notes ๐Ÿ“ when we making tea toothless and greyed like I would when when I’m highly pregnant and you’re packing my lunchbox. 

I basically want our love to be consistent. If you only going to do things to “catch” me and then get complacent thereafter, then I don’t want it, any of it. 

I’m talking about real love, consistent love, unconditional love. I’m talking about choosing to celebrate me even at my lowest, now and forever. I’m not talking about superficial love. I’m talking about solid ,ride or die love.

Are you with me ? I hope you with you with. Please be with me. 

Secret desires,

From your future wife

Dear future husband 

I don’t know if I’ve asked or told you this before but I feel I need to again.

Please be consistent.

Don’t get me used to certain gestures and then suddenly stop when you see fit or feel like it. 

My actions and my love is never inconsistent. I don’t expect yours to be either. 

I pay attention to everything and if you can do certain things when you’re still trying to “get” me. You should continue doing those things, if not more, to keep me. I take note of everything, remember that.

I don’t have time for mediocre. So if you’re here to be inconsistent then I don’t want it. #imnotsettling

Just a heads up,

From your future wife
