Blogtober // 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge

Hi friends! I am currently on day two of this lovely challenge so I’m here to drop a quote for y’all πŸ•Έ

─── ο½₯ ο½‘οΎŸβ˜†: *.☽ .* :β˜†οΎŸ. ───

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want.

And why do I want?

I want to live and feel all of the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life.

And I am horribly limited.

Sylvia Plath

─── ο½₯ ο½‘οΎŸβ˜†: *.☽ .* :β˜†οΎŸ. ───

Sylvia Plath never fails to make me emotional whenever I read any of her poems or works. The depth of sorrow and beauty within her words is hypnotic to me. I always find my thoughts and feelings mirrored in her words and I just want her entire body of work tattooed all over my body so I can carry the words with me everywhere I go. I love this quote because being in my mid-twenties I do feel stuck and limited in my experience. We’re all working so hard to maintain careers, relationships and everything else in our lives that often times life gets over looked. I want to get to a place in my life where I can just hop on a jet and go and experience anything and everything; I want to immerse myself in other cultures, and learn things from a different perspective. I often times think of the fact that every single person around me is living in their own personal reality and that no two realities are the same. There will never be another person with my experiences and I will never experience life through someone else’s eyes and for some reason that makes me feel like I’m missing out on important things. I am crippled with the overwhelming need to learn and reach out and do something but Sylvia is right, I am horribly limited to experience everything but it won’t stop me from trying 😌

  1. I love your quote and your thoughts. I too feel like we’re just too busy with bills and work and family and commitments that we limit ourselves and in this age of social media, a lot of us compare our lives and experiences to that of others who post pictures of jet-setting off in the world.

    One of my favorite quotes growing up which made more sense to me as every year passed was from Gabriel Garcia Marquez : β€œThe adolescents of my generation, greedy for life, forgot in body and soul about their hopes for the future until reality taught them that tomorrow was not what they had dreamed, and they discovered nostalgia.”
