Flowers in Her Hair + 10 Quotes For the Disheartened

Truth be told, the past few weeks have been pretty tough. I have not been my usual chirpy self which is why I am uninspired to write but whenever things are bad, it's always good to look for the silver lining. 

It's during difficult times that you appreciate the little things such as a stranger greeting you good morning, a co-worker buying you a cup of coffee without asking, and even being alone at home snuggling with your dog. There are just some days when you need a little more loving than usual and it's comforting to know that you're not alone.

Whatever you're going through right now, I hope these quotes help lift your spirit. 

1. "True courage is found in your ability to love again no matter how broken you once were."

2. "Everything is temporary. Sadness, happiness, luck, bad luck, beauty, ugliness, rich-ness, poor-ness, a slim body, a fat body, a high self esteem, a low self esteem, your ugly haircut, your pretty haircut, your dreams, life."

3. "When things are bad, we take comfort in the thought that they could get worse. And when they are, we find hope in the thought that they could get worse. And when they are, we find hope in the thought that things are so bad they have to get better." - Malcolm S. Forbes

4. "The best way to get rid of pain is to feel the pain. And when you feel the pain and go beyond it, you'll see there's a very intense love that is wanting to awaken itself." - Deepak Chopra

5. "Happiness comes in many forms--- in the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else's dream come true, or in the promise of hope renewed. It's okay to let yourself be happy because you never know how fleeing that happiness might be." - Lucas, One Tree Hill
