10 Quotes To Keep You Inspired!

If you have been following me for a while, you would know that I LOVE affirmations and quotes! I decided that I would pick 10 of my favourite quotes and share them here with you all. Be encouraged!

1. “Despite the many tears that threatened to dilute it, your faith did not dissolve. Your heart is still pumping. Your pulse is a sign that this world needs you.” ― Sarah Jakes Roberts.

PURPOSE! Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you lack purpose. God has given you a purpose, aside from being a Mother. You were created to be great and you were created for so much more. As long as there is still breath and life in your body – your purpose is waiting for you to fulfil it. Don’t let God down.

2. “Use the bricks thrown at you to build a beautiful house with a foundation of Christ.” ― Heather Lindsey.

Your foundation should be Christ and Christ alone, not man. Man will always fail us not intentionally, but it is our nature as humans. We are not perfect, but God is. Stop focusing on irrelevant trends, irrelevant people and things that cannot help you to grow.

3. “I may not be where I need to be, but I thank God I am not where I used to be.” - Joyce Meyer.

When you look back at where you’re coming from, you have to thank God that you’re not where you used to be. God is elevating you and He is going to take you to places you can only imagine!

4. “Stand up straight and realise who you are. That you tower over your circumstances. You are a child of God. Stand up straight.” – Maya Angelou.

I have learnt that everyone in this life has their own problems and challenges, nobody lives a perfect life, but for some their problems are more evident than others. Instead of complaining about your problems, tell your problems about your very big God! There is NOTHING that God will not do for you, I want you to believe that because it is true. He has moved mountains for you already, He has done many things – some you may not even be aware of, that’s how good He is!

5. “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.” - Oprah Winfrey.

There is nothing to be ashamed of when you do not get something right or when something goes wrong. Learn from it and move on. Never beat yourself up, don’t be hard on yourself either because life happens. If we got every single thing right, what would we learn?! Challenges are there to strengthen us and failure happens to teach us.

6. "Don't settle for average. Bring your best to the moment. Then, whether it fails or succeeds, at least you know you gave all you had. We need to live the best that's in us." Angela Bassett.

Always try to do your best in everything that you do. Sometimes you only get the one opportunity to do something, so leave your mark. You don’t have to impress anyone, impress God and yourself. Leave your work to do the talking for you!

7. "I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something I just had to be." – Lupita Nyong’o.

You don’t need validation from ANYONE – you need to get comfortable with validating yourself. You are already stunning; nobody needs to tell you that. Be confident in your own skin and know that you are beautiful inside and out.

8. “Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. Trust your instincts, good relationships feel good, they feel right, they don’t hurt.” - Michelle Obama.

I always say this, but the people in your life are either there to help to make you or to help to break you. You must be very careful who you class as a “friend,” not everyone is for you. Your friends are supposed to be a reflection of you, they should be kind, uplifting and supportive, if your friends are happier seeing you struggling or down, than that speaks volumes. You do not need bad vibes in your life. Pray about it and God will reveal who He wants to have in your life. Guard your heart!

9. “She remembered who she was, and the game changed.” ― Lalah Delia.

What I admire about this quote is that it shows that sometimes when you face situations you may forget what you possess and who you are because your judgement is clouded. You may have dark days, days where you feel like you cannot go on, but Mama you must! Your child(ren) need you. Remember who you are, remember why God created you and chose you to be their mother – now, change the game!

10. “Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you CHOSE your life, you didn’t SETTLE for it.” ― Mandy Hale.

Life is happening NOW, and time waits for nobody, so you cannot sleep on yourself. Wake up, get up and go out there and make your dreams happen. Never settle for a mediocre life, for things you are not fully satisfied with. If you want to learn a new skill, go for it. If you want to go back and study, be my guest. If you want to move across the world, why not?! Grab every great opportunity that comes your way. Life is too short to sit down and have regrets. Pray about it and go and live your very best life. God wants you to be happy and so do I.
