My Favorite Inspirational Quotes #2


One of the main things in life that helps give me inspiration is reading quotes. Whenever I need a reminder I always browse through my favorites on Instagram or Pinterest. It is amazing how a few simple words can change your whole outlook or mood. I shared some of my favorite quotes last spring in a post which you can read here, and I thought I’d share some more of my favorite inspirational quotes + this midi skirt outfit. So make yourself your favorite drink, get cozy, and I hope you get inspired!

Favorite Inspirational Quotes

“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience” – Deepak Chopra

You only fail when you stop trying.

Your comfort zone can be a lovely place, but nothing ever grows there.

Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying somewhere you don’t belong.

“Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be” – Rick Warren

“Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it” – Chris Assaad.

It is not your job to be everything to everyone.

Your only limit is your mind.

“When you have a bad day, a really bad day, try and treat the world better than it treated you” – Patrick Stump

Work hard and be nice to people.

Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn.

Keep going, You are getting there.

The sun will rise and we will try again.
