Sometimes life can be really hard to handle, days, weeks and months pass by where we feel down, uninspired and unhopeful. There's a reason words and books are iconic and just a simple word can completely impact and affect someone's life or perception of things. There are some of my personal favorite quotes that I've gathered from movies, books, Instagram stories and sentences I've heard in passing. I saved them to look back at when I need to be reminded of the beauty of life and when I'm in desperate need of beautiful wording and positivity.

I now pass them along to you in hope that they will help someone get through a bad day and start off a new day with positivity, inspiration and hope. Good luck.
