In Need of Some Inspiration?

Updated: Apr 17, 2019

Inspirational and #motivational quotes are a bit like marmite- you either love them or you hate them.

Some (OK quite a lot) can be a bit cheesy, but I have to admit that some I really like. It could be that I'm pondering something, feeling a little uninspired, or I don't even realise I need to read certain words until I do. Either way, some days I read quotes or short poems and I'm like YES! Mostly I share these on my #instagram page in the form of a story, but that only lasts 24 hours.

I guess it could be fitting that they are there to be seen in the right moment by the right people, and then gone? But I started thinking about how often I read something, sometimes a simple 1 line quote, sometimes a longer piece of text- and I would like to share it but I have forgotten it. So my solution is this- I write them down as part of a blog.

The difference with this blog is that it will be ongoing (subject to me continuing it)! Any more #inspirational (or basically just nice) words I find I can add, AND I would also love it if you would send me any of your favourites, or even words you've written that would fit into the inspirational category, to add to the #blog. I will credit the quotes and words best I can, and any you send me I will include your name if you don't mind. Let's work together to #inspire each other!

So here goes for some of mine...

I do not need the kind of love

that is draining

i want someone

who energises me

- Rupi Kaur

You have so much

yet you are always hungry for more

the trick to being well fed is

you have to stop looking up

at everything you don't have

and look around at everything you do

- Rupi Kaur

You do not just wake up and become the butterfly

- Rupi Kaur

Strength also looks like:

stopping to nurture, nourish,

restore, and align

is not something we have or don't have.

It's a practice- a conscious choice of how we want to live.

Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day.

It's about the choice to show up and be real.

The choice to be honest.

The choice to let our true selves be seen.

- Brene Brown

You owe it to yourself to be yourself.

- Yogi Bhajan

Unfollow anyone-

on social media and in real life-

who does not make you feel empowered, informed, or inspired.

- Unknown (let me know if you know who I can credit).

Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.

- Unknown (let me know if you know who I can credit).

You are enough.

- Unknown (let me know if you know who I can credit).

Don't pollute your body by absorbing the negative energy around you.

In case you forgot to remind yourself this morning...

Your butt is perfect.

Your smile lights up the room.

Your mind is insanely cool.

You are way more than enough.

And you are doing an amazing job at life.

- Unknown (let me know if you know who I can credit).

No one is you

And that is your super power.

- Unknown (let me know if you know who I can credit).

Healing yourself will ask more of you

more rest

more self love

more letting go

more time for learning

more space for transformation

more honesty about how you feel

more time developing good habits

more courage to try new practices

more time cultivating your inner peace

more faith in yourself and the process

- Yung Pueblo

Take a small step every day.

- Unknown (let me know if you know who I can credit).

I will be adding more all the time. Actually this could turn into a huge blog so maybe it will continue in several parts? Send me over your inspirational words- (your own or your favourites by others). You can send me an email or visit my Facebook page or drop me a direct message via my instagram page @karine_annick.

Until next time...
