15 Inspirational Quotes to Live By
Sometimes we find ourselves in a low place in life – So here are a few quotes to help uplift you and remind you that a happier life is completely possible – even right now.
The moment we wake up – remember that there are an infinite amount of possibilities to our day. The feelings you went to sleep with the night before are gone – and today is a day for new surprises from the world and clean slate to start something new.
What is your’s will find you. Sometimes, we find ourselves wanting something so much, it pains us and causes immeasurable suffering thinking about not having it. Don’t fall into this mindset. The things in life that are meant for you will come to you in the right timing. Believe and trust in that. In the mean time, focus on getting yourself one step closer to where you want to be.
You are beautiful. You are worthy. You are enough. Speak these words to life within yourself. Say it to yourself every moment of every day – However many times it takes for you to understand and accept the wonderful being that you are.
If you ever feel as if you are unhappy in the place you are in now, remind yourself it is all about perspective. I know it’s difficult to completely separate yourself emotionally from the conditions of your external world, but we have to if we ever want to be happy. No matter where we are or what kind of life we are living, negative things always happen. Don’t have tunnel-vision on the negative.
There are beautiful things around you, no matter where you are in life. See those things too – And remember that the “Here and Now” is also beautiful.
For me, feeling joy is such a rare emotion. I can feel content and at peace or melancholy and sad – But true joy has always been a fleeting and mysterious emotion to me. It comes with solitude, reflection, timing, and a warm thought that brings together the most overwhelming emotion in this world – but to me, to experience that emotion is beyond value.
Let all you do be done in love.
I oftentimes imagine everything in life has life, even the “nonliving” parts of it. When you put love into the things you do, you will feel the love returned to you, even from these “nonliving things”.
Maybe it’s just me as a romantic at heart, but if I cannot slow down and put love and effort into the things I do, my heart detaches not just from my work, but in all aspects of my life – And I find myself not capable of receiving love from the things and people I used to feel so much love from. So let all you do be done in love.
Pursue what catches your heart, not what catches your eyes. The things that catches your eyes oftentimes do not bring emotional fulfillment, happiness, or love for the long term. It is the things that are most beautiful about people that will sincerely catch your heart.
At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can. Think back to some of the most difficult times in your life – and remember that as you sit here in this moment, know that you made it through those parts of your life. Know with the same certainty that you will make it through whatever difficult time you are facing now.
Every obstacle life throws at you is created for you to overcome – To make you the human being you are supposed to grow to become.
You exist as you are, that is enough. You do not have to be anyone else to be accepted. You do not have to be perfect, look a certain way, act a certain way, think a certain way, or feel a certain way. Simply exist to be as true to yourself as you can be – and that is enough.
All we have is now. Now is the only moment that can change the course of your life. The past and future doesn’t exist – Rather they are all versions of “nows” – Nows that have past us by and the nows that have not come into existence yet.
The present moment is the only time that exists, and when you think about it, it has the power to change everything – the perspective of your past and happiness of your future. “Now” creates everything.
Keep your face always toward the sunshine – And shadows will fall behind you. When negative things happen to you, always look towards the positive and in time, these things that bring you down will eventually be left behind you.
At first, it will take a lot of effort and self-discipline to practice this, but the more you do it, the more effortlessly negative things will fade away from view.
In order for good things to come your way, you must believe you deserve them. If there is an inkling inside you that speaks doubt or a sense of inadequacy about yourself, fight against that small voice that says you aren’t good enough.
We all live through this voice at one point or another. I still have trouble with these thoughts myself – But just as I don’t judge others for being “undeserving” of happiness, I need to not have these thoughts against myself.
If it’s still in your mind, it’s worth taking the risk. As we grow older, we may find parts of ourselves that yearn to be heard and call out to us.
Maybe you were born into this world with a life purpose, whether you know the whole truth of it or just a small fraction of what you are meant to do – It is the journey of excavating this truth that will bring your life fulfillment and true happiness. So take that risk.
It will all make sense one day. All the days that you suffer will bring you closer to the person you are meant to grow into. Every little detail in your life you believed you had no control over was in-fact created just for you to overcome these days of suffering. And when you look back, you will know for sure that there is something infinitely greater, deeper, and unseen to living.
Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.
Sometimes we can plan our entire lives out, and plan every possible event that could ever happen and what we should do when it happens. Stop doing this.
The universe will always find a way to pleasantly surprise you, so relax. Have fun seeing the world like a child – as if there is an adventure in even the most mundane of places. Sometimes, it’s just best to leave yourself open to the element of surprise.
Be patient. Be loving. Be king, Be gentle.
I live by these “rules.” Even when human nature wants you to lash back, gossip, or be unkind – Each negative thing you put out into the world is in-turn a form of suffering upon the soul. Your own soul.
