Every day I wake up I try and do something that challenges me. I feel like you cannot live life to the fullest by “playing it safe” you have to go after everything you want and if something is not difficult than you probably aren’t challenging yourself. We can only truly succeed when we go after what we want and struggle a little bit to get there. But in the end we have to know that the struggle was worth it.


This is my all-time favorite quote that perfectly illustrates what I said before. Challenging yourself is doing things that you normally wouldn’t, that a lot of people do not have the courage to do. And those people are the ones who say that your dreams are too big or that they’re unrealistic. That’s why you have to stay away from them.. just like the quote says, they are creatures of the commonplace. Don’t be one of those!


About Daily Inspiration

My name is Alexandra Mortallaro but most people call me Alex. I'm from Kansas City, Missouri and I have the greatest family on earth. I'm a sophomore at the University of Northwest Missouri State University. The only organization I'm involved in currently is Phi Mu and I have absolutely loved every minute of it since I joined! My major is Political Science and my minor is Criminal Justice. I'm a firm believer in following your dreams and doing whatever you put your mind to. One of my dreams after finishing my undergrad is to score outrageously high on the LSAT and get accepted into a great law school somewhere in Los Angeles. After that my dreams are infinte and you'd laugh at me if you heard them! In my spare time, when i'm not hanging out with friends or family, you can usually find me on pinterest or twitter. My favorite topic to search on Pinterest is quotes because it can be extremely uplifting at times when you need it most which is why I chose to write my blog on Inspiration. I truly deem inspirational quotes one of the best ways to get yourself out of a "funk" and back into doing what you love. If I can make at least one person's day by doing something so simple as posting something inspirational then hey I must be doing something right!
