🧠Memorable Quotes 🧠

 “We cannot all be circles.”

“Don’t box me in. I’m a freaking circle. I don’t want to be labelled. To me labels are boxes and are limiting and I don’t want limiting thinking. All my life experiences just add rings to this concentric circle and I’m just a really big wheel at this point and I expect it to expand.”
☝️ Seb's favorite ☝️

 “We (GenX) were the original stick-it-to-the-man punk rock and yet we’re just sitting back all passive, which is so weird because our generation really was rebellious.” 

“I want to die with grace. Why aren’t we there yet folks? There are so many things we need to be addressing, mental health, being good individuals, not abusing or seeking power.”

“Change is hard. You think you got it, and then you don’t. You think you’re done with work and then you don’t. And then you realize it’s always work.”

“We need to be leaders of our own lives first and foremost before we can be leaders of anyone or anything else out there.”

“I’m a sexual woman who lives life to its fullest and I should be able to talk about all those things without being judged.”

“This planet isn’t about having a perfect world. It’s about navigating through and picking your battles appropriately. There is a time to fight and there is a time to drop it, let it go, and move on. It’s like riding a wave.”

“We don’t get a script for life. If we got a script, wouldn’t it be much easier? But we don’t.”
