Quotiful: One of your Quotifuls caught our attention. It narrows life down to finding people who are "your kind of crazy". What experiences in life enables you to relate to this quote?
Ashley: I absolutely love that quote about finding your kind of crazy in life. Everyone has their quirks, I'm a strong believer that when you find the people that are just the right amount of crazy for you then you've found your tribe.
Quotiful: What's your favorite quote or motto in life and why is it important to you?
"Fall in love or get inspired. Ace a test or flunk a class. Speak the truth. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourself. Breathe. And enjoy the ride..." - Solbeam
This is so important to me because I think in order to live a truly happy life we have to enjoy the ride. People waste so much time thinking and planning about how to make the perfect life, find the best husband, make the most money, and have the best job. When really we should embrace the chaos of everyday life and swim with the current. Invest in the moment and live for today. Don't take life too seriously because no one makes it out alive. The time we have on Earth is small and I don't intend on wasting any of it; live the dream and let life happen to you.
Quotiful: What core message do you hope to inspire others with?
Ashley: I hope to inspire people to be the best version of themselves they can possibly be. I want to empower others to strive to be their best and not limit themselves. There is so much to do and learn while on this Earth and I want everyone to enjoy every single moment. Erma Bombeck was quoted saying "Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere." Love life and don't let anyone put a ceiling on your dreams or your potential. Say "yes" to everything and you should do something everyday that scares you, makes you feel alive.
