      I always see positive quotes all over the internet and they always make me feel motivated and bring me comfort when I read them.

      So I thought it be a great idea to post any we see on here. Could be from books or from the internet etc

      Could be positive quotes, motivational quotes, comforting quotes, famous quotes, philosophical quotes, life quotes, empowering quotes, spiritual quotes, small poems even and even your own quotes that you‘ve came up with!

      Hope it brings comfort to people ❤️

      I’ll start off :

      “She woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, against her, or walking down the middle because they didn’t have the guts to pick a side.
      She was done with anything that didn’t bring her peace.
      She realised that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking, and loyalty wasn’t a word but a lifestyle.
      It was this day that her life changed.
      And not because of a man or a job, but because she realised that life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.”

      Life Is A Journey, Not A Destination

      Be careful what you tolerate; you are teaching people how they can treat you.

      The best revenge you can get on a woman who steals your man is to let her keep him.

      All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.

      Our future reality is dependant on what we do in this moment.
      The most important time…is the time we make for ourselves.

      It will drive you insane if you live trying to analyse their motivation to hurt you rather than your motivation to protect yourself.

      Simba: *rubbing his head* “Oww! Geez, what was that for”

      Rafiki: “It doesn’t matter! It’s in the past!”

      Simba: “Yeah, but it still hurts.”

      Rafiki: “Ah, yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.”

      A couple from Kung Fu Panda (great the messages you can pick up in kids movies)

      Master Oogway: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called ‘the present’.”

      Master Oogway: “Your mind is like this water my friend, when it is agitated it becomes difficult to see. But if you allow it to settle, the answer becomes clear.”

      “One of our greatest freedoms is how we react to things”

      “Sometimes,” said the horse.
      “Sometimes what?” asked the boy.
      “Sometimes just getting up and carrying on is brave and magnificent.”

      To the women who are labelled…

      .Aggressive: Keep being assertive.

      .Bossy: Keep on leading.

      .Difficult: Keep telling the Truth.

      .Too Much: Keep taking up space.

      .Akward: Keep asking hard questions.

      Please don’t shrink yourself to make someone happy. Be yourself, you’re beautiful that way.

      Smile and the world laughs with you! Cry,and you cry alone. Hmmm…Not sure if this is entirely appropriate? But it does, also seem true. The posive quote here?Remember, someone’s always here to offer support as a comfort, and the tissue is yours to keep.

      Today was a Difficult Day,” said Pooh.

      There was a pause.

      “Do you want to talk about it?” asked Piglet.

      “No,” said Pooh after a bit. “No, I don’t think I do.”

      “That’s okay,” said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

      “What are you doing?” asked Pooh.

      “Nothing, really,” said Piglet. “Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don’t feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

      “But goodness,” continued Piglet, “Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you’ve got someone there for you. And I’ll always be here for you, Pooh.”

      And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs…he thought that his best friend had never been more right.”

      It’s often those who experience trauma that have the greatest ability to heal – the strength needed to see them through the most difficult times is adaptable and interchangeable to create positivity.

      Don’t look back, you are not going that way.

      You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

      Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain.

      No-one is you and that is your super power.

      Here’s one I don’t know if it’s a positive quote but it’s true and it made me laugh, never wrestle with pigs , you both get dirty, and the pig likes it “George Bernard shaw” ( yes I know it’s a bit naughty , but it’s a bit funny too 😁)

      Auriel – that would be a great t-shirt ;-)!!

      I found these quotes this morning on pinterest and I thought I would share it:

      “I’m proud of you. The truth is, if most people really knew your story and all the things you’ve been through, they’d probably wonder how you’re still smiling. So, if you don’t hear it from anyone else, I’m proud of you” – Coach I am Enough

      “Don’t make someone else the hero of your survival story. After all you’ve been through, you deserve the credit. No therapist, conference or book took those steps for you. You did. Nothing can touch the depths of how hard you’ve worked to overcome. You should be so proud”
