Need inspiration? These 35 quotes will make you want to take on the world!

I’ve always been a quote person. Ever since I was a little girl, I would cut out quotes from magazines and paste them in a scrapbook to refer to in times that I needed them. To this day, I still have quotes that are taped to the wall above my desk for inspiration.

Lately, I could use a little inspiration. I’ve been feeling burnt out trying to balance a million things at once; grad school, blogging full-time, eating healthy, working out, family/fiancé time…and making time for some sleep! So in all honesty guys, I usually keep you in the back of my mind when I’m writing a post, but today’s post was written more so to motivate me to get through this hellish week. Lol!!!  But you know that I always have your back! My goal is always to help YOU work on YOURSELF while I work on MYSELF. :)

I think sometimes we all forget how amazing we are. We get lost in the shuffle of life and forget all we are capable of being and doing. It is my hope that you pin this post and refer back to it during those times when you need a boost. You are capable of doing ANYTHING that you set your mind to. And if you forget, I’m here to remind you.

    You are a woman after my own heart : ) : ) I was the same way about magazine clippings growing up. I was (and still am ) obsessed with quotes and lyrics. I have a whiteboard outside of my classroom that I post different quotes on and incorporate various quotes and lyrics into journal exercises. I find so much beauty and inspiration in words, and your choices are just perfect. This post makes my insides happy.

    • Aw! We are practically the same person. I feel like everybody could always use a little inspiration!

  • Kelsey

    Wow, these are so great!! I love all of them! Especially “Never compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.” I recently started my blog over the past few months and I’m learning not to compare my blog’s starting point to bloggers that have had quite a few years of experience! Thanks so much for sharing!
