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!
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
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.
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!
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.
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?
