Well, I can’t quite believe that the Little Blog of Positivity has now been up and running for three months! 
I hope that you are finding the blog useful and that it brings some inspiration and positive vibes to your day?
During my three months of blogging, I have come across loads of fantastic inspirational quotes.
I’ve also found a wonderful community of fellow bloggers out there.  In particular, for the last few weeks, I have been part of a friendly little group of bloggers on Twitter.
So today, to honour that little group of friends, I am sharing their favourite positive quotes for life with you.  To steal a phrase from Strictly, ‘in no particular order’ here we go!


always be different positive quote


Emm says that she applies this quote to absolutely every aspect of her life and that it helps her stay positive.   
She told me “my looks, my professionalism, my blogging – as long as I am different I will be just fine.  In a similar sense, it’s fine to be different”.
Emm is mum to Mia and also six (yes SIX!) cats!  Her blog is well worth a look emmjoy.co.uk


bird song positive quote for life


Geraldine told me that this quote resonates with her because she hesitated for two years to start her blog.
She said “it’s easy to get down on yourself when you see how many bloggers there are and how many are experts in their niche.  It’s easy to think no one would ever read your stuff which is why I put it off for so long.  But after finding that quote, it made sense to give it a try anyway!”
I’m so glad that she did!  Geraldine is such a sweet member of our little Twitter gang. 
She will go out of her way to help, particularly if anyone is struggling to fathom out how to do something on their blog.

best you can with what you have

Marie rightly says that “nobody should expect more than your best”.   She said that she likes this quote as it is such a positive affirmation.
Marie absolutely loves boats. I found her a pier picture for her quote – she will be on the boat I expect, somewhere to the left!
She is very busy posting daily on her blog at mariexceline.wordpress.com  and also on her crafting blog craftowlblog.wordpress.com


stop being afraid

I came across Abby’s blog MyLifelines right at the start of my blogging adventure.  (In fact, I featured on a collaborative post about the ten days of positive thinking TED talk series.  My very first collaborative post!)  Abby is great fun and always full of fantastic ideas for posts and working on things together.

Abby told me about the quote she has chosen “I think it is extremely easy to stay in our comfort zones and not try new things because of fear.  I also think we spend so much time on the negative, that it could be beyond healthy to think about all the positive and just enjoy life to the fullest!  It’s a quote I refer to often when I am thinking through decisions or ruminating on the bad too often”.

MyLifelines is a lifestyle blog run by three millennial women: Abby, Lauren & Jordan, i.e. ALJ.

They created this blog to share what they’ve learned through many years of friendship, to shine a light on influential and powerful women, and to give advice or a listening ear to anyone in need.

They write about things that are affecting them, knowing that others might be experiencing it too.  The women of MyLifelines believe no topic is off limits.  They also love to hear from their readers, so dive in and let them know what’s on your mind!


best use of imagination quote

Paula says that this quote resonates with her because she heard it at a time when she really needed it.

She told me “I was struggling with anxiety about my father’s health (he has since passed away) and what my life would look like without him.  I was spending a lot of time sitting next to his bedside, worrying away…and I felt helpless!!  I heard this quote, and I had been toying with the idea of starting a blog for some time.  I figured, why not give it a try and see if it helps?  I’m happy to say it’s ABSOLUTELY true!  Accessing my creativity on a regular basis has been a godsend for me!”

When I heard this from Paula, it resonated with me too as I lost my own Dad in July this year.  I definitely agree with her that having a blog and being creative is a godsend.

Paula’s blog, The Value of A Moment  is a little corner of joy and vitality.  She has another great quote on the page all about her

Sometimes, you never know the Value of a Moment until it becomes a memory – Dr Suess

I recommend you check out her blog!


kelly's quote


I have a picture of someone in a very sparkly crown with this one! 
Kelly of lovelifelavish.com told me about her favourite quote. “I love this quote as I love to help people and don’t need to shout it to the world or need a reward”.  Very lovely indeed.
Kelly’s blog is full of fun and inspiration, in particular, check out her recipe posts, yum!


we are made of star stuff


This one struck a chord with me when Katie from itsthespicybean.com sent it over. 
She told me “I love the quote because it helps me deal with the hardships in life.  It’s extraordinary that everything that we are and everything that exists has been here since the beginning of the universe.  What makes us will be a billion other things after it’s been a part of us.  It’s helped me cope with loss as I find comfort in the way that when we die we don’t *really* die, we just become other things.  Like all the other things we’ve been since the start of time”.
It was Katie’s explanation which made me realise why the quote had resonated with me too.  Since my Dad passed away, I too have comforted myself by feeling he is still part of the world.  He has become other things, the woods and hills near where he lived and he is also part of me.
Katie is a fellow cat momma and also posts lots of mouth-watering recipes over on her blog.  Check out this post all about autumn recipes (bring on the pumpkins!)




I definitely agree with this one.  It has taken me quite a long time to stop thinking that I do – but we have no control over how other people behave.  We do, however, have total control over how we react to that behaviour.
Ash told me “I love that quote because it helps me be a better person.  No matter how the people around me are treating me, I know that how I act/react is the most important thing for my own soul and peace of mind!”
Ash is proud mum to no less than six kids!  She therefore needs a lot of caffeine!!  You can find her over on her blog A Brewed Awakening
So there we have it, some fantastic inspirational quotes from some fantastic inspirational ladies!  We would love to hear which one resonates with you most?

  7. Kate Findley

    Great post! I really like how you discuss how each quote impacted you personally and also introduced us to some new bloggers! In particular, I liked the quote from Henry Van Dyke because I, too, get frustrated that my traffic is not as large as I’d like it to be or I’m nowhere near as famous as other bloggers, but I remind myself that even if I have just a few devoted readers, I’m making a contribution.

    1. Alison

      Hi Kate, thanks for the visit. I’m glad you enjoyed the quotes and found one in particular which resonates. There were quite a few I hadn’t come across before, including the Henry Van Dyke one. It is indeed a great quote and reminds us all of the contribution we make 🙂

  8. Chloe Chats

    This is such a lovely post, really inspiring quotes. Love the quote ‘Be the woman who fixes another woman’s crown without telling the world it was crooked.’ I totally agree, it’s so lovely helping out others and we don’t need no reward for it. It reminds me of the blogging community, everyone is so supportive, so encouraging and just amazing. When I started to blog I never thought the blogging community would be like this but it’s just wonderful. Great post.

    Chloe xx

  12. Wafaa

    Love them all because each one has its time to use it in but all things to live by in my opinion and there are two that resonated with me Geraldine’s quote because that’s how I was feeling before I started my blog I thought there’s so many what can I add how going to help but I took the step anyway because I was fed up with those thoughts but it came sneaking on me sometimes
    The other one is Paula’s quote because I was so anxious for most of my life without even realizing it I thought I was cautious little I know I was having all that bad ideas and images in my mind that had me feeling stuck, sad, worried

    1. Alison

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment 🙂 I’m glad that you have found the quotes useful. I know exactly what you mean about being anxious and thoughts sneaking up on you as I’m exactly the same! You have made excellent progress by starting your blog and getting out there, focus on how far you have come!
