Winter Quote Wednesday

Welcome to Winter Quote Wednesday!

I was sad when Fall Friday Favorites came to an end and was looking for another way to do a weekly check in with a purpose.

Enter Winter Quote Wednesday. Each week I’ll share a quote that I love and why, and I’d love to hear your opinions in the comments!

So, this week’s quote is from Bill Phillips,

“The difference between who you are and who you want to be, is what you do.”

Bill Phillips

Something in me snapped when I heard this quote. I’m sure I read it before and have heard variations of it a dozen times, but something just clicked.

The space between where I am now and where I want to be is what I do.

A lot of the time, the things that I want feel really far away. They feel impossible.

I always lose myself in the doing. It’s the piece that’s always missing.

I always wanted to be a blogger, but never wrote.

I wanted to do yoga, but never laid down my mat.

I wanted to bake bread, but never bothered to try.

I was waiting to win the lottery but never bothered to by a ticket.


It’s so simple now. In the words of Nike, “just do it”, right?

I feel like this is one of those things I’ve always known but didn’t internalize until recently.

Anyways, I love this quote. It’s one I reference often.

What do you think of it? Is there somewhere you could be in life if you just did something different?

Let me know below!
