My Personal Quotes to Live by
Updated: Sep 7
I was trying to think on what to write lately being so occupied with a new venture which I am truly enjoying. I was thinking of skipping this week but I felt guilty if I couldn’t publish anything at all. It seems that it’s a sin to defy one of the resolutions I made this year. And besides, if I skip, it’s going to become a norm and I’ll end up not writing at all again.
Then I remembered I posted some quotes which I came up personally on Facebook before so I thought I’m going to share them with you. I came up with a lot actually, but I’m going to write my top 20 favorites only since I want to avoid a very long blog. I know most of you can relate to these quotes. You can share these with anybody you want to motivate, to cheer up or just to inspire.

13. If you feel that you're losing hope, just remember that life has a lot to offer. You just have to open your eyes to see all the opportunities surrounding you.
14. Just because you turn your back on someone doesn’t mean you don’t care anymore. Sometimes, letting go is the best thing to do. Rather than hurting each other one day, it’s best to leave while you still care.

I hope I inspire you!
