Uplifting Quotes for January and Beyond...

Uplifting Quotes List 2016The start of each New Year promises change for us all thanks to resolutions and/or lists of aims; some of which are kept as part of our routines and others that fade out.  With this in mind, it's usually around mid-way through January that lists packed with tips on 'dealing with failed resolutions' or similar start appearing both online and in print.  In a year comprising fifty-two weeks, it seems unfair to declare failure just two weeks in!  So, instead, I've pulled together some positive quotes that aim to encourage, as opposed to guilt-trip. After all, there's no limit to the amount of times you can pick yourself up and dust yourself off again, right?  Step outside of the January hysteria for a moment and you'll notice we're only a couple of weeks into the year - January is the baby of the bunch!  We've got this...

- George Bernard Shaw

- Marcus Aurelius

*

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on
- Robert Frost

*

If you don't like something, change it.  If you can't change it, change your attitude
- Maya Angelou

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year

  3. I love the idea of this post so much, hon. It's really great and therapeutic to take time and look up some amazing inspiration in the form of quotes. I also write everything down and appreciate not only beautiful notebook and stationery but also the content I jot down.
    Maya Angelou's quote has been in my faves for a while now. My ultimate pick-me-up quote is always this one: The best is yet to come. It always puts a smile on my face.
    Thanks for this lovely post, Gabrielle.
    Love & hugs your way, xox

  10. "If you don't like something, change it". I think that's a really good one, and so useful for when you're starting to lose steam from all these resolutions. Maya Angelou, killing it as always.

  27. You've got some amazing quotes here, Gabrielle! I love Maya Angelou's quotes as well as Winston Churchill's, both very wise. One of my favorite quotes from Maya is, "people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Thanks for sharing these quotes with us, they've definitely helped to encourage and brighten my day! Have a wonderful weekend, beautiful!

  65. Love these quotes, especially the Emerson and Frost ones:-) Thanks for sharing, and beautiful notebooks! xo!

  66. Ooooh Gabrielle! I love the simplicity of this post. You said something very poignant, which is "two weeks in is a bit unfair to declare yourself a failure". As someone who normally does not do resolutions, you have given me real food for thought.
    My favourite quote, out of the ones you have posted is "Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen". I so believe in this. Have a wonderful week.

  67. What a cute notebook set! I was already familiar with most of these quotes but it is lovely to be reminded of them.

  68. All these are such lovely quotes, especially the last one, Gabrielle. Yeah, I know what you mean, most of us like to beat ourselves up way too fast, so it is comforting to know and keep reminding ourselves that life is an on going process of learning, re-learning and continuous learning.

    I think I need to get back into more jotting and writing already... keyboard has taken over my life since forever... but the pleasure of just writing is so different and liberating. Thanks for the gentle reminder.
