My Top 10 Motivational Quotes to live by

Whether you’re suffering from monday blues, writers block or just wanting to feel inspired here are my top 10 quotes to live by!

So to kick things off…


“We rise by lifting others” – Robert Ingersoll

I think it’s very easy in this social media world we now live in to get caught up in likes and numbers on a screen. A lot of people will follow to unfollow to try and get you to follow them back and boost their own numbers. We need to remember it isn’t a numbers game and by helping others, we help ourselves.


“You will find that it is necessary to let things go, simply for the fact that they are heavy” -C. Joybell

I feel like this is such an important reminder that we should all take on board. Sometimes people, whether they be family, friends or total strangers, upset you. It is inevitable that you will unfortunately be let down by people in this life. However, the best thing you can do is learn to let these things go and forgive them. Not for their sake but your own and for your own mental health.


“It will all be okay in the end, if it’s not okay, it’s not the end” – John Lennon

This life can get really tough at times. We can feel totally lost and wind up in dark places but we must always remember that there is so much more to this life. It will be okay.


“Be you, do you, for you, love you” – Unknown

You must remember that you are free to do want you want and be the person you want to be. You have to do it for you and learn to love yourself along the way.


“We are all a little broken, but the last time I checked, broken crayons still colour the same” – Trent Shelton

Nobody is perfect and although we may feel insecure about our flaws and how broken we are inside, we can still shine bright. We are still capable of happiness, it’s inside us all somewhere.


“Comparison is the thief of joy” – Theodore Roosevelt

I will say it over and over again, please stop comparing yourself to strangers on the internet. You are not seeing their real life, their true self. You are not seeing past the camera lens. Whatever you may think you are seeing, you are not. The internet is one big illusion, don’t trust it.


“Be good to people for no reason” – Unknown

If you smile at some, if you help them to open a door, if you strike up conversation or even just smile at someone you could make their day. You have the ability to turn somebodies life around, to restore somebody’s faith in humanity.


“A little more kindness, a little less judgement” – Unknown

You could walk somebody on the street and not know they are grieving, that they are thinking of suicide, that they are in chronic pain. Be kind, because you just don’t know. You don’t know how much somebody may need that tiny ray of hope, that little piece of kindness. Every day you have a chance to make somebody’s change for the better. Take advantage of that, because you will never get to live any of your days twice.


“Be somebody that makes everybody feel like a somebody” – Brad Montague

The quiet person sat alone in the corner sketching, tell them how amazing it is. Reach out to new bloggers and give compliments. Give genuine comments on Instagram posts. Build peoples up, plant tiny seeds of self belief, give them the tools to water those seeds and to believe in themselves. Make them feel special in a world that tries to tell them they aren’t.


“Stop letting who you were talk you out of who you’re becoming” – Bob Goff

If you’ve had a difficult past or previously been unhealthy physically or mentally, remember that doesn’t have to be who you are forever. We are always growing, always changing. It’s okay to let go of who you once were to start becoming the person you are supposed to be
