Let's face it:  life isn't always a box of chocolates.

There are times when it seems like life is purposely trying to throw every single loop in the world at you simultaneously.  Those times usually make for a pretty stressed out you, which then leads to a frantic you, and then it only goes downhill from there.

Sometimes you just need some positive reinforcement.

Reworded a little differently, sometimes you need someone who knows just the right thing to say at just the right time.

I don't know about you, but there are some cases where that person is a little hard to find.  So what do you do?  You go on Pinterest, of course!  It's a horde of quotes and lessons, so you're bound to find at least five sayings that will improve your mood in one sitting.

In a bad mood now?  Here are some of my favorite quotes for when I'm in a less-than stellar mood:


"Be brave, my darling.  You have faced dark times before and you're still here now."-- C.T.L.

"It all fades away in the end." -- Unknown

"God has not called you to 'fit in.'"--1 Peter 2:9

"Give the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate your presence." -- Unknown

"Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny."--C.S. Lewis

"The meaning of life is to give life a meaning." -- Unknown

"She needed a hero, so that's what she became." -- Unknown

"When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad.  For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps."--John Lennon

"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale..." -- Unknown

"What if I fall?
Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?" -- E. Hanson

Hmmmm, maybe I could be a professional quote-hoarder when I get older...



  1. Who is CTL and where can I find this quote in full?

    1. I believe that C.T.L. stands for a Tumblr username, although I could be wrong. As for finding the quote, try Pinterest and Tumblr; if those don't work, then I'd search the entire quote on Google or another search engine to see what pops up.
