Sometimes we all need a boost of motivation or something to inspire us. Some days it can seem like nothing goes right and the whole world is conspiring against us, and its natural to wallow in a sad or unmotivated mood.

However, I’ve found recently, that when I am feeling especially low, a great quote can inspire, motivate and remind me just how lucky we are to be alive.

So I thought today I’d share 10 of my favourite inspirational quotes with you. Now, I’m not saying these will solve anything, but I am hoping they will bring a bit of light to your day.

        Vicki I think Sunscreen was tongue in cheek – many think sunscreen unhealthy whereas the words of Sunscreen are very healthy 🙂
