helpful quotes

I’ve decided to keep this one short and sweet. I’m just going to give you fifteen quotes that I find helpful in hard times. I’ll see you all again tomorrow with a normal blog.

I don’t want to suffer, so excuse me if I excuse myself from situations that suck all of my energy—Sylvester McNutt

If you want something you never had, you have to do something you’ve never done—Unknown

Maybe it won’t work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be the best adventure ever—Unknown

It hurts because it matters—John Green

Failure is a great teacher, and, if you are open to it, every mistake has a lesson to offer—Oprah

You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it—Robin Williams

Whatever you do, never run back to what broke you—Frank Ocean

For what it’s worth: It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over—F. Scott Fitzgerald

To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions—Deepak Chopra

I got my own back— Maya Angelou

Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not—Deepak Chopra

Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering—Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

If you love something, love it completely, cherish it, say it, but most importantly, show it. Life is finite and fragile, and just because something is there one day, it might not be the next. Never take that for granted.
Say what you need to say, then say a little more. Say too much. Show too much. Love too much.
Everything is temporary but love.
Love outlives us all— R.Queen

You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself—The Wizard of Oz

Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing— Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

BONUS:
I’ve never seen any life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question finally getting tired of their own bullshit—Elizabeth Gilbert

DOUBLE BONUS:
Be brave. Without bravery, you will never know the world as richly as it longs to be known. Without bravery your life will remain small— far smaller than you probably wanted your life to be—Elizabeth Gilbert

Pretty much anything from Elizabeth Gilbert will help me through a hard time… So, yeah. I had other things lined up to post today, but I decided just to throw this together. I felt people may need a break from my daily posting. I was worried about getting annoying… (That’s a battle I’m dealing with right now inside my head— maybe I’ll write a blog about it, lol)

I hope maybe these will help you just as much as they have me!
