“When things are bad remember, It won’t always be this way…” -Unknown
Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit moody and I don’t know why. It could be the rain or money or family issues but what ever it is, it’s gotten the best of me. Do you have days like that? Have you ever felt unsure about what will happen next?
I’m one of those people who wants to know about the future. Am I going in the right direction? Questions like these plague my mind all day, until finally I give up trying to solve it. I’ll usually watch a movie to take my mind off my “First-World” Problems. Or I think about someone else, from around the world, who has it worst off then I do. This thinking doesn’t solve my problems but it makes me more self-aware. More self-conscious.
Anyway, I’ve compiled a list of 18 feel-good quotes for days when I’m not feeling my best. Hopefully, this will cheer you up, too.
