We all have our days when we’re not really feeling as positive as we should be. In fact, there are many things in life that can get a person down. I know I have my days. Things just don’t go my way and sometimes I just feel frustrated and like giving up. However, since I have never been one to give up on anything and I never back down from a challenge, I have looked for ways that I can remain positive and I have found many quotes to give me the positivity boost that I need. While there are many excellent quotes to help you stay positive, here are 10 of my absolute favorites to help you when you need some positivity in your life.

“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day”.


This quote is perfect, in my opinion, because sure, we all have our bad days. Things go wrong, but at the end of the day, there was at least one thing that was good during your day or that you have to be thankful for and you’re just overlooking. As a parent, no matter how bad my day may be, my daughter is always the good.


“We think cats are adorable, no matter how fat or skinny they are. Lets think the same for humans”.


It is true. People love cats and no matter what shape a cat has, people find it to be adorable. Because everyone is built differently, we shouldn’t put someone heavy or thin down for it, because weight aside, they are still beautiful.


“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers. But most importantly, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you do not see it yourself”.


I like this quote, because sometimes when things go wrong, I have a tendency of coming down really hard on myself with blame. I think I’m horrible or a failure and I could surround myself with other negative thinkers, but instead, I surround myself with those people that think I’m awesome, even on a bad day and it makes life so much better.


“The best way to be happy is to turn the negatives into positives. Don’t let anyone steal your joy and always be thankful for what you have”.


This quote hits home for me. I used to focus on what was wrong in my life and let it bother me. I used to not appreciate the things in my life. Now, I have found a way to make the negative factors become positive. I kind of learned how to do so from my daughter, because she is young and nothing brings her down, (except for our dog, to roll around and romp!). I have also learned to be happy with what I have and appreciate the small things.


“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and stars. You deserve to be here”.


I always think about this quote when I feel lost or out of place in life and it gets me back on the right track.


“Every day is a new day. You wake up with a clean slate”.


This quote holds so much meaning. It always lets me know that I left yesterday and the things I did in the past. Today is a new day to make a positive change.
Now that I’ve gone on about why I love some of these quotes, here are a few more that I love. Think about them and decide why you love them and what is great about them for yourself!


“I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful and too determined to be defeated”.


“I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become”.


“When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon


“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe”. –Oprah Winfrey


These quotes are excellent reminders that life is not as bad as it may seem. You are a wonderful person and you deserve to be happy and wake up each day with a smile. Remember these quotes when you’re having a bad day and you will see how much they can help!
