Today I wanted to do a post that is uplifting and inspiring, but may also stir your emotions. I’ve been carrying these specific quotes around with me for the last 10 years or so. These quotes touch on so many different areas of our lives. Some of them remind me of how lucky I am and some of them remind me to be grateful for what I already have. You may have already come across some of them online or in books that you’ve read. I’m sure many of you will be able to relate to these.



Some of these were created by other people and some of them were created by me. I hope that you will use the comment section to write one of your own.
