Ciao tutti! 🙂
Today’s post is a collection of some special quotes that I turn to when I need a little extra help. Quotes can seem cliché since they pop up practically everywhere now and can therefore lose their meaning a bit. But some can really strike a chord inside and help keep things in perspective, especially when you’re going through a tough moment.
Another thing I find comforting in quotes like these are that they remind me that someone else has experienced the same feelings I’m feeling. No matter the specific circumstance, pain is pain and obstacles are in everyone’s story. So with that reminder that we are all in this together, here are my favorite quotes that help lift me through difficult moments. 🙂
Each day, live to elevate yourself. each day elevate one person. Make elevation your religion. – Yogi Bhajan
Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. -C.S. Lewis
When we face the worst that can happen in any situation, we grow. When circumstances are at their worst, we can find our best. -Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Although the world is full of suffering, it’s full also of the overcoming it. -Helen Keller
There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing – light trumps darkness every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light. -Jodi Picoult
When nothing is sure, everything is possible. -Margaret Drabble
At the end of the day, tell yourself gently: ‘I love you, you did the best you could today, and even if you didn’t accomplish all you had planned, I love you anyway.’ -Anonymous

You make a fantastic point about “striking a chord”. Thank you for the perspective.
Thank you for the read. I’m glad you liked it 🙂
Your pics of Italy are fantastic too. It really gives it a “local” perspective, like the hidden little beach, the shot from the motorcycle on the mountain road…very nice. Very authentic.
Thank you so much, that’s what I was going for. Trying to give a more real look into things than just the most famous places.
Sometimes it’s the little out of the way places that only the locals know about that make it worth while….buon lavoro!
So true, grazie!
I really love the J.K Rowling quote.
Definitely a favorite of mine 🙂
