favourite quotes

May seem silly but I love quotes! I thought I would share my favourites with you. I know for some people (me included) it is exam season which can be stressful- here is some positive quotes to keep you going...

How am I going to be an optimist about this? The best thing about the worst time of your life is that you get to see the true colours of everyone. If your always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be. Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do. To thrive in life you need three bones, a wishbone, a back bone and a funny bone. People cry, not because they’re weak, it’s because they’ve been strong for too long. The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects it to change, the realist adjusts the sail. Ego- take off the E and let’s go! Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t. It’s supposed to be hard, if it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it, the hard is what makes it great. The best is yet to come. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you. The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who are fighting battles without anyone knowing. The harder you fall the higher you bounce. Giving up DOESN’T always mean you are weak, sometimes it means you are strong and smart enough to let go and move on. Tough times don’t last, tough people do. Never say never because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion. Our reaction to a situation literally has the power to change the situation. Don’t be like the rest of them darling. You are always the reason why somebody will be smiling. Be stronger than your excuses. Never let your struggles become your identity. Do it with compassion or not at all. The only time you should look back is to see how far you have come. Someday is not a day of the week. To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest achievement. I’m stronger because of my hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, and happier because of my sad experiences. We don’t know strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have. If you give up, it’s over, but if you don’t, the day will come when you’ll be glad you didn’t give up. Life is the most difficult exam, many people fail because they are trying to copy others, not realising that everyone has a different question paper. I am a strong person but every now and then I also need someone to take my hand and say everything will be alright. Just try, have a go, you never know what you will achieve. You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it.  You can do it, and you will do it. It will be better tomorrow, if it isn’t then there is always tomorrow.
