Quotes to inspire you

I’m not a big one for quotes really – you won’t often find me posting an inspirational quote on Facebook or Instagram. So when it came to writing a post about quotes for Blogtober I turned to some of my fellow bloggers to help me out. I asked them to tell me their favourite quotes that inspire them or make them happy, and this is what they came up with…

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. Dr Seuss

Victoria, Lylia Rose

You can’t pour from an empty cup

Lucy, Hello Beautiful Bear

The man who climbed the mountain didn’t fall there

Katie, Mummy’s Diary

You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.  John Lydgate

Pete, Household Money Saving

Every scar you have is a reminder not just that you got hurt, but that you survived.  Michelle Obama

Kim, Raising a Ragamuffin

Happiness is not an absence of problems just the ability to deal with them

Jen, Just Average Jen

If you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. Roald Dahl

Laura, The Chatty Chronicles

She believed she could so she did. R.S Grey

Megan, Truly Madly Kids

An empty bag won’t stand up. Helen’s Mother-in-law

Helen, Casa Costello

Things always seem impossible until they’re done

Natalie, Mumworthy

I think there’s some great quotes here but there was one other suggestion which is actually one I have relied on to help me feel better a lot since I became a parent…

This too shall pass - Buddhist saying

Apparently it’s a Buddhist saying which I didn’t know, so thank you to Sophia from Tattooed Tealady for reminding me of this one. And of course a big thank you to all the other bloggers for sharing their words of wisdom with me.


This is the seventeenth post in my #Blogtober series – you can read the rest of the posts here.
