Words of wisdom

Since I have become unwell, I have come to rely on positive quotes to lift me up and keep me strong during those hard times. Sometimes all you need are a few wise words to help keep positive. The power of a positive mind can help the hardest of situations. I want to share with you all some of my favourite quotes.

  1. Great selection. I love the one about there being something good in everyday. It’s something that I use to get me through and I make a note of them for my memory jar. It can be very easy to focus on the doom and gloom of our situation. I also love the Albus Dumbledore one. X


  2. Positive quotes and images can be just what we need to see or read on a bad day. Love this post Lennae thanks for sharing them all! I’m thinking of creating a positivity scrapbook sort of thing which I might do in the winter months when the days are cold and lonely, lots of positive quotes will be filling it I think! Enjoy the rest of your day or enjoy tomorrow deepening on what time it is over there!



    1. Thank you Hayley. I’m glad you enjoyed them. I love the sound of your positivity scrapbook! I’d love to hear more about it if you end up making one!

    I keep a list of inspirational quotes on my phone and screenshot some photos of quotes from Instagram that I look at when I’m having a bad day or need a little boost or reminder that I’ll get through this – I’ll definitely be adding some of the quotes from your post to it :)!
    Have a lovely weekend xx
