Some days just suck. The weather is gross, your kid drops their entire baggie of cheerios in the car and then a bus drenches you with stinky, muddy puddle water. Of course none of these are life changing but they sure are annoying. One thing I like to do on a bad day is scroll through Pinterest looking for positive quotes or find a website focused on uplifting quotes. I find just reading a few positive and encouraging words can go a long way.
To be honest, this post is partially for me as well. I love the idea of putting a few awesome and uplifting quotes in one place for me to be able to reference back to when I need them. In the middle of the dreary winter it can be hard to feel positive and uplifted.
I truly hope these quotes help you feel better on a crummy day.
