I love, love, love to hear a quote that makes me think “Whoa, so true!” The ones that tell you what you already know, but somehow package it in a way that gives you butterflies. I especially love the ones that have a way of brightening my day when it’s starts to take a turn for the worse.
Sometimes you just need a reminder of the things you know to be true. And sometimes that reminder needs to be daily. So without further ado, here’s a list of inspirational quotes to tell yourself everyday:
The things people say are a reflection of them, not you.
This is really, really, seriously true. There are a lot of insecure people out there and unfortunately insecurities tend to be passed on to others. So don’t dwell, don’t let others put you down, and don’t let someone else’s opinion get in the way of your dreams.
The best gift you can give a child is a happy parent.
Remember, Mommies, you won’t be able to put the oxygen mask on your child if you don’t put it on yourself first. Same goes for happiness.
Be the type of person you want to meet.
Then everyone will be glad they met you.
A year from now you will wish you had started today.
Be healthy. Be happy. Invest. Make a plan. Start something today that your future self will thank you for.

Sometimes a broken crayon will even color for two.
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
Declutter. Turn your home into a sanctuary.
It’s ok to be happy with a calm life.
We were all brought up to dream of being the President or a Nobel Peace Prize winner or a Emmy nominee. Those dreams are great and you don’t need to give up on them. But it’s also ok to just be happy being average.
Savor the little things in life because one day you will look back and realize they were the big things.
Not to mention that you deserve a break. So enjoy the small stuff.
The grass is greener where you water it.
So focus on your own grass, not the Jones’.
If you don’t build your own dreams someone else will hire you to build theirs.
If you want something, go for it. Otherwise someone else will take it.
Be as you wish to seem.
What do you want other people to say about you? How would you want them to describe you? Be that.
