10 Inspirational Quotes to Embrace Life and Live Your Truth

I equate quotes to being like a Vitamin C shot for the mind. I believe strongly in feeding your mind empowering, positive words and ideas as you would feed your body good food and drink.

Having my own experiences with mental health issues and self-managing over the years, I have found the use of quotes to be a really valuable practice. So if I’m having a crummy day, feeling down on myself, want a boost or just need to feel like I’m not totally alone in how I see the world, there is inevitably a wise sage saying that may invite a new insight, or inspire a shift in perspective.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.


2. Albert Einstein
