5 Beautiful Positivity Quotes to Brighten Your Day
“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” – Marcus Aurelius
I picked this Marcus Aurelius positivity quote because, well, first it made me smile, and second, because I admired the fact that a Roman emperor who lived from 121 AD to 180 AD (that’s right, getting close to 2,000 years ago – but it still applies today) described a visualization technique that is regaining popularity today, as if it is a new concept.
“When things go wrong, don’t go with them.” – Elvis Presley
I picked this Elvis positivity quote to share because it is such a simply stated, pure and positive thought, I felt it belonged here. Plus, I think it’s human nature to let your spirits go down the drain when bad things are happening around you, so I think it’s an important message to hide inside your heart.
“Happiness is something we reap from the seeds we sow. Plant misery seeds and that us what you reap.” – Stephen Richards
This positivity quote is here because the gardening metaphor creates a visual image, and it’s a great reminder that we have a say in how our lives feel.
“The way forward is to stop pestering yourself for answers and let it, the creative part of your mind, come up with the solution when the time is right.” – Steve Backley
This positivity quote is here in this article because it speaks to a trap I let myself fall into so often, overthinking and worrying and struggling for a solution, and a lot of people do that. So, if you’re one of them, if you’re like me on this point, then this quote is here to remind you that a solution will come if you just relax and let your creativity do what creativity does- in this case – create a solution to whatever thing you’re struggling with.
“I make a point to appreciate all the little things in my life. I go out and smell the air after a good, hard rain. I re-read passages from my favorite books. I hold the little treasures that somebody special gave me. These small actions help remind me that there are so many great, glorious pieces of good in the world.” – Dolly Parton
This Dolly Parton positivity quote is here because, well, I admire that with all her success, she takes the time to appreciate the small things and that she lets herself see the beauty of something as simple as the scent of the air after it rains.
I hope these positivity quotes put a smile on your face today, or that they at least inspire to take a moment to appreciate the world and the people around you.
