How I Keep My Spirits Up

I’m generally a happy person.

It’s not always easy to do though, and it does take reminding myself of the good things to keep going.

When I’m feeling a bit down, I go for a trawl through the internet (particularly pinterest at the moment!), to lift myself up.

Thought I’d share some quotes and sayings that I’ve found recently that help me take stock of my life.

I truly believe every single one of these, and I think that everyone else should to! I’ve got a ton more on my pinterest account, under “words“, so feel free to have a nosey.

YOU are amazing, wonderful, talented and beautiful simply because you *are* you. That’s what makes you unique! It doesn’t mean that you won’t have flaws, hell, *everyone* has flaws, but *never* let them hold you back from being the best you can be!

Sharing is caring:

    Me too, thought it’d be a bit of a breather after the screamy post and the diagnosis one. 😉

    Some of those are really good. I haven’t heard of pinterest. Might have a squint later.

    I struggle a lot with liking myself. I should probably be reading things like those everyday.

    I saw this on someone’s blog (can’t remember whose it was but it wasn’t one I regularly read) and liked it “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Emerson

    Oh I love that one! I always start each day as a fresh slate, for me and the boys. Helps a lot! 🙂
