My Favorite Inspirational Quotes

It may sound cheesy but I am a sucker for a good inspirational quote. On days when it feels like everything is caving in, a good quote serves as a reminder that it could be far worse. I feel like they are a quick pick me up. In high school I used to write letters to my best friends and would fold them up into tiny little pockets and on top I would write something inspirational. Something like “everything happens for a reason” or “adventure starts where plans end.” My role has always been the cheerleader when it comes to my family and friends and maybe quotes are a way to speak my inner optimism. Either way, they work.

If you’re subscribed to my newsletter (if not, do so here!) you probably saw last night’s email about quotes to inspire your week. I thought I’d continue that thought with a few more favorites that ring true to me every single day. 

Time stands still best in moments that look suspiciously like ordinary life. I love this quote. Never take the ordinary moments for granted!

Two things define you: your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything. So true.

Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure. Something I need to remind myself everyday #controlfreak

We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give. Yes.

It takes courage to grow up and be who you really are. Don’t be anyone but YOU!

So who wants to be pen pals and write each other letters on ripped out pieces of notebook paper folded up like origami? Haha, just me? What inspires you? I have an entire Pinterest board filled with quotes that I love!

Have you ever heard the song Everyone is Free to Wear Sunscreen? I used to listen to it allllll.the.time. Now that I’m older I feel like so much of what is says rings true. Life goes by, we are too busy growing up to realize our parents are growing old, we ignore compliments people give us, we feel lost in what our true purpose may be – life, man. It’s rough. 

A little deep for a Tuesday post but thought provoking! What makes you see the bigger picture??
