The world around us is quite a negative place. You may have noticed that there always seems to be something negative influencing you.
It could be that you read or listened to the news. Every story seems to be more gloom and doom than the last. You may be worried about everything from the economy to being killed as you try to go to work each day. Even when you watch other shows on television, you get the same feeling. There is always sadness, drama and pain that seem to be the centerpiece of everything these days.
Now take a look at the people around you. Unfortunately, they are likely not too much better. It seems as a society we have become more drama and negative focused in recent years. Everything is looked at from a negative standpoint. If there is a positive to a situation it seems to be watered down or put at the bottom of the list when it comes to what should be noted. What happened to a time when we could see the better side of things as we looked at the world?
Perhaps what we all need are a couple of uplifting inspirational quotes. Conveniently, that is exactly what this article has for you. So sit back, relax, read on and enjoy a little positive inspiration for a change.
"Whosesoever you go, go with all your heart."
Confucius left us this inspirational quote. Although it's just a few words long, it really is a great set of words to guide our lives. You see, often we just go through the paces of life. We get rid of any positive emotion that relates to our daily activities. We get up, have the same breakfast, go to work, come home, have dinner, tuck the kids in and go to bed. Then we do it all over again the next day. But where is the emotion that goes with it? We've lost it. Instead, consider if you did not have any of those things. What if you did not have a job? What if your family were taken away? Now, go through your day appreciating those things you have and really enjoying the time you have with them!
"Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up."
This quote comes to us from the Reverend Jesse Jackson. This is a great quote for today. Unfortunately, it seems as a society, we tend to have a better time in laughing at people when they are down instead of helping them when they need it. There are plenty of people who place blame for this mentality all over the place, but where it came from doesn’t matter. What does matter is not doing it. Think of how you would feel if you were in that situation and if you can, lend a helping hand.
"Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." - Antonio Smith
This quote attaches well to the quote from Confucius earlier. It reminds us that those things we take for granted day in and day out can be very important ones. While you may not take the time to appreciate the beautiful sound of birds chirping outside your window in the morning or the funny noises your littlest child makes when she's playing with her toys now, what if you could no longer hear? You would desperately miss those things. So, appreciate that you are lucky enough to be able to hear and appreciate all of those little things right now. Never take them for granted.
