Quote of the Day

As you may remember from previous posts, I have started working with a great little company called Itty Bitty Book Company. They produce the cutest little books, filled with inspirational quotes for any situation. In my work with them, I’ve decided that every other week I will share a quote with you that I feel applies to my life at that particular time. I love quotes and often turn to them when I need some motivation and inspiration, so I hope that by doing this I can help to inspire some of you too.

“Sometimes it’s OK if the only thing you did today was breathe”

I picked this quote very quickly this week. I knew I wanted to choose one from the ‘Strength’ book, because the last couple of weeks have been incredibly difficult and I’ve needed any strength I can possibly find. It just feels like everything is coming crashing down around me right now and I’m feeling incredibly vulnerable. Doing anything is taking me all the energy and strength that I have, so I particularly like this quote as it makes you realise that there are some days where simply breathing and staying alive is enough. I’m very self-critical and always put pressure on myself to achieve highly, so this quote is something I find very difficult to put into practise. But it’s something I definitely need to work on. I need to realise that I don’t have to be perfect every day. I don’t even have to be particularly great. I just need to give whatever I can and stay alive, and no one can ask anything else of me. So, if you’re struggling to get through each day right now, I’d really like you to take heed of this quote and congratulate yourself for making it through today.

What quotes inspire you when things are difficult?
