Even on your good days, you can always use a pick me up. For me, It’s words of grace. Whether I read a few paragraphs in my devotional books or just search on Pinterest for words to inspire me, I always find a place of comfort knowing that my mindset can be switched with just a few simple words. I’ll always try to be an advocate for positivity because that is the most important way to live your life. Your mindset is so powerful, and if you are always thinking about the negatives in life, you will most likely have an adverse outcome with anything that you do.
I mean, don’t get me wrong there are times where I just can’t seem to get myself to a good place, and my heart is often so heavy. There are days where I am searching for answers in the wrong place (I.E., gossiping, scrolling through the internet at unnecessary drama, etc.) it always leaves a bad taste in my mouth, and I try so hard to stay away from that feeling. I always ask myself, “If it doesn’t make me a better person or make me happy than is it worth my time?” The only thing that is, and should always be important, is Jesus, My family, and my home.
It feels so good to be motivated to have a better day by reading someone else’s words and tying it into your own life. Everyone is going through something in life, and you never know who needs to hear words of encouragement the most. That is why I am always finding quotes and putting them up on social media because I know people might read it, and it might help someone who didn’t know they needed to hear the words that are said through quotes.
So, here are some my favorite inspiring, encouraging quotes that I have kept close to me and hopefully they stick out to you as well.
