In today’s hectic world, it is becoming harder and harder to calm the mind. We are over-stimulated and overworked, and we find less time to do the things we enjoy because of the things we have to do.
This can evolve into you feel discouraged or overwhelmed. We all have those feelings. They come and go in different shapes and sizes throughout our lives, it's the balance between our positive and negative emotions that makes us human. And feeling down is just one part of the while grand scale, I actually think it's sometimes necessary, but in those times we might need a light, something that encourages us to get out of that rut and help us get back on our feet. To help us find our inner good vibes.
I have gathered a bunch words of encouragement that can brighten up your day and bring you positivity. Some of these quotes are from people that have endured heinous things in life, yet they found love in their hearts to forgive and keep creating goodness.
These words, even though just words, can be powerful, if you allow them. Encouraging means instilling courage – a brave act that is sometimes more compelling and effective than motivation.

Some people say that you will never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. I can assure you that in my case this is the absolute truth.
Life is always fluctuating. And just as the world outside us constantly changes, so can the way we view it. Make positive changes today and start living the positive life you’ve always imagined.
