I have recently been questioning whether or not I need a change of pace in my life. I find change to be exhilarating, but my expectations always seem to be much higher than the reality. I get so excited about the prospects of something new—a new city, new apartment, new people.

But why am I so drained from my current circumstances and what can I do to prevent this mindset from becoming a way of life—moving from one place to the next, never finding exactly what I am looking for? Why am I in full-on meandering mode?

Reasons to leave always come in multitude, but reasons to stay are usually few. When I find myself trying to change my mindset, I fall back on quotes…quotes from strangers, celebrities, the unknown, and the occasional dictator. So here are some words of wisdom from those that find themselves either fighting their Gypsy hearts or embracing them full-on.
