Finding Your Daily Inspiration

October 24, 2013 , , , ,

Sometimes, even the littlest things can remind you of your importance and help to push you where you need to go. I turn to inspirational quotes to get my motivation and encouragement. No matter how cheesy or cliché they may seem, quotes can get you through some of the toughest times.

My computer background is my favorite Eleanor Roosevelt quote, and possibly favorite quote of all time: “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Every time I open my computer, I am reminded to dream big and to never be afraid of what will happen as a result.  Eleanor

If Eleanor Roosevelt’s wise words don’t tickle your fancy, find another one! You can find motivation in anything from Dr. Seuss to lyrics from your favorite song. Everywhere you look, there are inspirational quotes. So why not cover your whole wall in your favorite inspirational quotes? When you’re upset, look at your wall. When you’re excited, look at your wall. When you feel stressed, you’re wall is there to help.

There’s no inspiration like someone’s words of wisdom. They can remind you that you’re not alone in the toughest of times, and even the best. It is nice to be reminded that other people have felt what you felt and can relate to you while reminding you to always keep pushing forward.

Many of us Scripps kids are constantly beating ourselves up for not doing everything absolutely perfect. I’m guilty of this myself, but I have added quotes to my wall to help ground me and keep me from going completely nuts. One that always sticks out to me is, “shoot for the moon, if you fall you’ll land among the stars.” This reminds me that everything happens for a reason and it is never a bad thing to shoot too far and miss. As long as you have given it your all, you’ll be able to get something good out of the situation. You don’t have to land on the moon to learn what you were meant to.

The important thing is to just take a break when you feel like nothing is going right or you just need some motivation to get you through that rough Monday and remind yourself that things will turn out OK in the end. All you need is some motivation and encouragement to push you in the right direction.

Never under estimate the power of a few words. In the words of Rascal Flatts, “My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to. I hope your dreams big and your worries stay small.” Let your dreams run wild and always keep some powerful words by your side to help you make those dreams come to life.
