As we strive to make life better through difficult times, hearing the wisdom of those who have struggled, questioned and dreamed before us can make those times easier. When you feel the struggle is wearing you down, stay focused, keep a positive attitude and develop the mindset that life will get better because it will. Avoid the negativity and let your spirit soar.
Below, are five of my favorite quotes I turn to for inspiration, hope and reinforcement that life must go on during difficult times.
“We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.” ~ Martin Luther King
“Fall seven times, stand up eight.” ~ Japanese proverb
“Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.” ~ Robert Schuller
“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.” ~ Kenji Miyazawa
“We should always pray for help, but we should always listen for inspiration and impression to proceed in ways different from those we may have thought of.” ~ John H. Groberg
The next time you feel life has let you down with road blocks leading to difficult times, remember to stay strong and tell yourself, I can make it through this. With determination and positivity, I will conquer, see my way through the darkness and let my spirit soar.
