Quote of the Day

As you may remember from previous posts, I have started working with a great little company called IttyBitty 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.

“Keep in mind admitting weakness is actually a sign of strength”

This quote really stood out to me this week because for the last few weeks I’ve been really trying to put on a brave face but it’s got to the point where I just needed to admit that I am really struggling. It’s easy to see it as a sign of weakness, admitting you are feeling vulnerable and scared, but it actually takes a hell of a lot of guts to open up to others and be honest about what’s going on for you. I’ve been trying to convince myself that it’s OK to let others know I’m finding things hard, and that, in the long run, it will actually help me to get stronger with their help. There’s nothing wrong with accepting help from those around you. We are social beings who need other people to survive, and there’s nothing weak or bad about admitting you need a bit of help. So, instead of struggling to put on that brave face all the time, why not try confiding in someone you trust about what’s really going on. You might be pleasantly surprised by how much it helps.

What quotes inspire you when things are difficult?
