Life | A Little Bit of Inspiration

I think everyone can relate to this because we've all had those days when we're feeling down and need a little pick me up. One of my favourite ways to re-motivate myself is to look at inspirational quotes, especially when they're in beautiful typography. Here are just a few I've found lately...





I feel these are all important messages but ones that often get forgotten in everyday life. They're all fairly self explanatory but I'll just do a quick overview of why I found them particularly uplifting;

Don't sweat the small stuff - I'm definitely guilty of over thinking and sometimes forget to add perspective in certain situations. There's no point in getting all worked up over something that can't be changed or that's in the past. I find it helpful to think 'Will I still care about this in a years time?' and if the answer is hell, no then forget about it and move on. 

The less you'll care, the happier you'll be - A similar message as before but I think this sat with me so well as I'm a massive worrier. I worry about anything and everything and it's downright exhausting! I think I needed this little reminder that I need to not care so much, especially when it comes to what people think of me. 

The best things in life aren't things - This saying is a favourite of mine as I'm also guilty of being a tiny bit materialistic from time to time. Okay, the majority of the time. But I know, deep (deep, deep) down, that what really matters isn't buying another Mac lipstick but actually the experiences I can remember forever. Spending my money on trips to visit friends and holidays and days out with my loved ones are infinitely better than a make up product. I know that, I just sometimes need a gentle reminder...

'In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart' - This quote really hit home. If Anne Frank, of all people, can still see the good in people I should be able to also. It's easy to feel on the verge of losing faith in humanity these days, with attacks on the innocent becoming a daily occurrence but then I'll see a quote like this and faith will be restored again. Yes, there are bad people in the world, but for every bad person there's a good person too. Yin and yang. 

I hope this post was inspiring to some of you and if you're already in a good mood, maybe something to save for future reference. I'm thinking about making this a regular feature so let me know if you liked it.
