30 Inspiring Quotes To Make You Smile When You’re Down In The Dumps

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Don’t be sad. Keep in mind how awesome you are.

We all have days when we are down in the dumps. There are days when you are depressed, upset, angry, and all the other negative feelings a person can have. You may feel like you cannot see the light and that you will never get to where you are wanting to go in life.

But there are some great things in life that you will find, too. You will find a career that makes you happy and you will feel like you are accomplishing something fantastic in life. You may find the one who is your soulmate, get married, have a baby, find a dream house, adopt a pet, or go on a once in a lifetime vacation.

You have to just keep trying (and trying again) in life. You need to look at each moment with fresh eyes. Sometimes you just need some sleep to reset yourself. You may want to try giving yourself some more attention. When you are down in the dumps the most is probably when you give others more attention than you do to yourself. So you may want to try giving yourself some more attention. Do something just for you, like a massage, a nice, warm, bubble bath, a special type of food that you never get to eat, or whatever else makes you happy. Take a moment to yourself to splurge and regain your self-confidence.

Even though times may be tough for you right now, you may feel like just a few changes will make a huge difference. If you try to pamper yourself at least once a week then you may find that everyday struggles are much more manageable.

Keep strong and be fearless.

Here are 30 encouraging quotes to inspire you and make you smile when you’re upset and depressed so that you can get the strength you need to keep going. Everything will be OK and you will soon find your own happiness.

1. No regrets.

“Never regret a day in your life. Good Days give you happiness and bad days give you experience.” —Fearless.Soul

2. Letting it go is the first step.

“Every day is a new day, and you’ll never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on.” —Carrie Underwood

3. You will work hard to achieve your goals

“Whatever goal you give to your subconscious

25 Tough Love Quotes To Get You Through Anything Life Throws At You

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

We are all in need of a little tough love sometimes.

We all need a bit of tough love.

Whether it is coming from your best friend who is worried about your current relationship, or your boss who is concerned about your work performance. Sometimes tough love is the push we need to get our butts into gear and take back control of our lives.

A lot of the time, we think of tough love as a negative thing – who wants someone they’re super close to telling them that they need to do better?

Instead of viewing tough love and criticism as a bad thing, look at it as an eye opener.

The people you surround yourself with and that love you the most feel that your life is slipping away and want to help you realize it before it is too late.

Tough love forces us to take responsibility for our actions; it can literally save lives when it comes to those suffering from addiction issues or mental health problems. Tough love can also help us with simple, daily tasks that we are just too lazy to get done. When your mom tells you she isn’t letting you go out for the night wtih your friends until you clean your room and finish your homework, that is tough love!

We all need it from time to time. Your best friends and family will be the ones throwing tough love your way and it is important to take it to heart – unless you really don’t agree, then it is time for a sit down chat about how you all feel.

Regardless of the tough love you receive, here are 25 tough love quotes about how important being tough with the people we love is and the humor that can surround it sometimes. There are also some quotes thrown in there that maybe you need to hear right now. If there isn’t a person in your life giving you the tough love you need, consider me that person now!

We have all either been the person receiving or giving the tough love, right?

1. Receiving tough love is never easy, especially when you know the person is right

“I’m not telling you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it is going to be worth it” Unknown

2. And ain’t that the truth

“Tough love may

26 Strength Quotes For Women Who Need An Encouraging Daily Bible Verse

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

To being strong inside and out!

Do you love having a daily Bible verse to read? When you pick a quote about strength it doesn’t hurt to think it comes as a little blessing from God.

As a young teenager, I remember opening my Bible and closing my eyes as I let the pages sift through my fingers. I’d drop it flat on the table and put my finger down on the page hoping that the daily inspiration I received would be picked by change.

So many times a verse I memorized as a child became manna for the future. Like little ticking time bombs, a word would finally make sense years later.

One time, while in the hospital delivering my 3rd child too early than I was supposed to, I was terrified about my heath and feared death. I remembered my grandmother loved Proverbs 23, and so I meditated on each phrase until my son was born.

How amazing those words became to me. I had never appreciated a single verse from that chapter, I suppose because I didn’t have to. Yet, during my time of need, the same chapter that my grandmother prayed each day became my mantra during the darkest night.

Bible verses about strength are inspiring for busy women, Christian or not.

From losing a friendship to gaining weight, sometimes things happen in life that just plain should not. It’s nothing you did.

It’s nothing you didn’t do which can zap your energy just trying to fix a problem you didn’t create. 

And if you did, it’s ever harder dealing with the fear and guilt of it all.

But when unexpected and expected change does happen, there’s this tiny emotional alarm that goes off inside and asks, “What could I have done differently? How could I have prevented this from happening?”

The intuitive nature of a woman drives her to think things over — and then think them over some more.

Doing so brings many blessings, along with an awareness of a few dangers. Looking inside can teach us important lessons, but staring into an abyss of regret ruins lives.

And it’s especially hard to look inside for answers when it seems there simply may not be any to find, or when those we find just don’t make any sense. 

Rehashing different scenarios can foster a sense of fear when what a woman really wants is …

21 Encouraging & Uplifting Quotes To Get You Back On Your Feet When You’ve Hit Rock Bottom

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Wipe off the dirt and start climbing.

Hitting rock bottom is one of the hardest things for me to describe. Our own “hitting rock bottom” moments are things we all tend to talk about a lot because they’re what shape us into the people we become.

So I entertain this idea of rock bottom in my mind, trying to put into words exactly how being at rock bottom feels. The best definition I’ve been able to think of is just this: You know it when you feel it. 

It’s the feeling you get when things are going wrong all around you, and life feels chaotic — even hopeless. You’re losing drive, motivation and the ability to think clearly. 

To me, hitting rock bottom kind of feels like a roller coaster you can’t get off of. Of course, to make things worse, the roller coaster is underwater, so it’s really only a matter of time before you can’t hold your breath any longer. You drown under the pressure. In short, it sucks. 

The real question, though, is how do you take those feelings and channel them into something positive? How do you build yourself back up from rock bottom? How do you make it back to the surface? 

Even starting to think about these things feels overwhelming when you’re there. So here are 21 uplifting quotes to prove to you that life after reaching rock bottom really is possible. 

1. You will get through this and be stronger for it.

“When you have hit rock bottom and survived, there are very few things that can scare you.”  — Unknown

2. You will rebuild.

Never be afraid to fall apart. It represents an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wished you’d been all along.” — ​Rae Smith

3. Rock bottom? More like rock solid. 

“Bottom became the solid foundation on which I built my life.” — JK Rowling

4. Find comfort in the people around you.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”– Mother Teresa

5. This isn’t your forever.

“Hitting rock bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there.”  — Michelle Parsons

6. Find your paradox.

“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.” – Mother Teresa

7. You will grow from this.

“Strength

You can do this.

At one point or another in life, everyone reaches a point where everything becomes a little too much and it seems impossible to go on. You become lost in the haze of bad days and sleepless nights. You struggle to remember who you were before the event that changed you for the worse and even after the dust settles, you don’t know if you’ll ever be as happy as you were before it happened.

With each bad thing that life throws at you, you think to yourself “at least this is as bad as it’s ever going to get.” But flash forward a few days, weeks, months, or years and life throws you an even bigger curveball.

While you may feel the urge to punch a wall or scream into the void, you have no choice but to make it through. It’s unfair and the world is a cruel place but there’s comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. It’s a part of life and we must learn to overcome the struggles we face over the years.


Everyone has their specialties when comforting friends. Some are listeners; they can empathize and react in a way that shows they care. Others are talkers; they can say exactly what the person needs to hear. It takes a special someone to be both.

But where someone struggles to find the right words, another has already said them. Where one struggles to understand what someone is going through, another has gone through it themselves.

Words of encouragement are not only for the struggling; they are also for the successful. Everyone reaches a point where they need to be humbled or they need to remember where they came from. Here is how you help them, and yourself: by looking back at those who have felt the same profound sadness or confusion that you have. These people have been put down and defeated but they are still here, even if only through their words, to tell the tale. They made it, and so will you.


So when you feel like life is too much and need some inspiration to go on, look to these 40 quotes of encouragement to get you through even the toughest days.


1. Make the most out of what you have.

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

40 Pick-Me-Up Quotes For When You Feel Like You’re About To Give Up

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Keep pushing, the best is yet to come.

Do you remember a time when you were studying for a test and after hours of staring at your notes the material still wouldn’t stick? Remember a time when you were searching for a job and after months of applying you still hadn’t heard back from anyone?

Remember a time when you were trying to work out and become healthier, but you weren’t seeing the results?

Well you aren’t alone. We’ve all experienced moments when nothing seems to go right.


It seems like you’ve been working tirelessly for no reason. You began to get frustrated as time goes by and you feel like you still aren’t nearly where you want to be. You think to yourself, “why am I still trying?”

Then the thought of quitting pops into your head. How much easier would your life be if you just stopped putting so much time and energy into things that never seem to work out anyway.

I’m here to tell you that this is the moment when you need to push even harder.


It is so easy to give up, but the true test of a person is shown when they continue to fight even when the odds aren’t in their favor.

You are stronger than you realize, and the obstacles you are facing won’t last forever. Remind yourself of why you started your journey in the first place and why it is important for you to finish.

Perhaps you have people counting on you to succeed, or maybe you are just trying to prove to yourself that you are capable of reaching your dreams. Whatever you need to tell yourself to keep you motivated and pushing forward say it.

Listed below are some of our picks of the best inspiring quotes to remind you of why you should never give up on yourself or your goals and dreams.

30 Honest Friendship Quotes Everyone Who’s Fought With Their Best Friend Can Relate To

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Text your best friend one of these quotes and feel the love they give you back.

Friends are important, but best friends are even more so. They are special to us and encouraging our BFF’s through positive and encouraging quotes is a great way to show them how much they mean to us.

Friendships are important for social and mental health but best friends hold even more value in your life.

Best friends are harder to come by, but when you do find one, they make such a meaningful impact on your life and you wonder how you ever lived without them.


Most of the time best friends become family, which is one major way they differ from regular friends.

Life throws curve-balls at you all the time, but a life without a best friend would make any inconvenience or struggle much harder. They support you no matter what and always look out for your health and safety. Likewise, you are always there for their health and well being too.

Since best friends are so rare, most people have more regular friends than they do best friends.

Sometimes people only have one best friend and to be honest, one is all you need.

The more best friends you have, the more you have to question if they are a true best friend or just a friend. You will always come to find out — or immediately know — who your best friends are and how to set them apart from regular friends.


They say that the friendships you have that last longer than seven years are more likely to last a lifetime and best friends surely fit into this saying like a puzzle piece. Encouraging your bestie  — and vice-versa — is what this friendship connection is all about, so here are some quotes to share with your best friend. Even during the difficult times in your friendship, sharing one of the more serious quotes from below can help ease the situation, as it is natural for some conflict to arise in friendships.

Read on and use some of these positive quotes to help encourage a best friend, whether it be a difficult time for your bestie or to thank them for all that they do. 


1. Acceptance is key.

“A true friend accepts who you are, but also helps you become who you should be.” —​ Unknown
