#TipsTuesday: 17 Positive Quotes To Remember When You’re Having A Bad Day

We all have ‘those’ days, you know the ones.

The ones where we can’t shake off that meh feeling, we can’t pick ourselves back up or get our shit together. It happens to the best of us. Whether something personal has happened that’s affecting your emotions or whether it’s just a bad day (for me those are the worst ones, when you can’t explain what’s wrong, but you just don’t feel right).

The last few months were pretty testing for me, and we all incur tough times in a life, bumps in the road as some would say. How we deal with a situation and come out of it the other end is what defines us as a person and makes us strong.

I wanted to put together some positive thoughts to remember when the going gets tough to remind yourself that whether it’s a bad time or just a bad day, you’ll be okay again…

1.) Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can.

2.) You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and more loved than you will ever know.

3.) The greater your storm, the brighter your rainbow.

4.) Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.

5.) Worrying won’t stop the bad stuff from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good.

6.) It’s okay to be a glow stick, sometimes we need to break before we shine.

7.) There are 6 billion people in the world, don’t let one of them ruin your life.

8.) What consumes your mind, controls your life.

9.) In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.

10.) Life is like a camera, you focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don’t work out, take another shot.

11.) Don’t let someone who has done nothing, tell you how to do anything.

12.) No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart.

13.) No matter how much it hurts now, one day you will look back and realise it changed your life for the better.

14.) This too shall pass.

15.) When life puts you in tough situations, don’t say ‘why me’, say ‘try me’.

16.) Be stubborn about your goals, and flexible about your methods.

17.) Life has a funny way of working out, just when you start to believe it never will.

Remember, to always focus on the positives when things aren’t going your way and never forget how amazing you are!
