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.

“I like people who smile when it’s raining”

I thought this quote was pretty good for the last week. All of a sudden summer seems to have well and truly given in to autumn. It’s been cold and rainy and generally not very nice. Alongside this, my mood has been incredibly low and I’ve really been struggling to keep myself going every day. So, I thought this little quote was something I should try and do. The rain could be looked at metaphorically, as well as literally, and represent those times when things just feel a bit gloomy. Apparently when you smile your body releases happy hormones, even if it’s a fake smile. Now, I’m not saying that you need to pretend you’re happy all the time, because I’m a strong believer in accepting your emotions and letting yourself feel them. But, next time you’re feeling glum, why not think of something that will make you smile and just see if it helps to brighten your mood, even if it’s just a little bit.

What quotes inspire you when things are difficult?
