These days, you might be feeling short on joy and motivation – it’s been a challenging year. Many people are feeling burnt out from all the bad news across the planet and it can be easy to lose sight of what inspires us to persevere. We’ve put together some quotes that can help you rise from a place of darkness, and emerge as a stronger, more resilient person:

“The energy you spend criticizing yourself can best be spent building yourself up.”

Negative energy takes a lot out of us. Critical thoughts can drain us of the motivation that we need to get through the day. Although it’s challenging at times, try to use that energy for positivity instead.

“Love yourself today, and every day.”

There are no exceptions to self-love. It will help you enjoy life and allow you to do things that you dream of without fear. No person is worth losing your confidence over. Loving yourself is a full-time job, and it’s more rewarding than any salary could be.

“Failing doesn’t make you a failure, it makes you human.”

No one does everything perfectly all the time. Try not to be afraid of messing up; failure is what makes you stronger. Some of the most valuable lessons that life has to offer are learned through trial and error. When we fail, we can see a clearer path to success. Don’t beat yourself up for mistakes – instead, show yourself kindness, and know that it’s all part of the process.

“Embrace your fears and listen to what they tell you about yourself.”

When we are afraid, often our first instinct is to try and stifle that fear. Instead, give yourself a chance to listen to it – what scares us the most can be incredibly revealing. It tells us what we want to avoid. Ask yourself: What is the outcome that I’m dreading? It can be rewarding to face our fears head-on. Great courage is gained when we overcome what makes us weak in the knees. Walking through fears increases strength and resilience.

“Self-love is a lifelong process, and there’s still so much to learn.”

It’s been said that throughout our lives, we never finish learning. We don’t reach a point where we know everything. The same is true about ourselves. Self-discovery is a process that never ends. Learning what makes us happy can be challenging – but don’t give up! Self-love allows you to live life to the fullest and will help you embrace your imperfections.

“The aftermath of standing up for yourself may be hard, but it’s never the wrong choice.”

To live by what we believe in, we have to fight against what we know is wrong. That means speaking up when we disagree with something or cutting out toxic people from our lives. Know that you deserve the best. Staying true to your beliefs will inspire those around you to stand up for themselves, too.

“One of the best things you can ever invest in is yourself.”

Money can’t buy happiness. Instead, spend your time and energy in self-care. The process looks different for everybody; for some, it might enjoying your favourite hobbies, like reading a book or taking a pottery class. For others, it can be rewarding yourself with a pampering treatment.
