Here we are, coming to the end of another school year. If you're anything like me, then you are probably more than ready for summer break. Around this time, I always find myself in a weird place. Whether it's with school, friends, or work, sometimes, I just find it difficult to find motivation to do anything. I mean, I still get up and get things done, but there's no enthusiasm. I've been rushing to get each day over with, instead of taking the time to be thankful that I am able to see a new day.
This is, without a doubt, the worst place to be in, because little moments in life start passing you by. If you're not present and living in the moment, it's easy to lack inspiration and motivation. Being in college is tough, and, at times, it can be very draining. College is more than just going to class every day. There are things that we go through that people don't even know the half of. I know that I am not the only person who feels this way, so I thought to myself, why not write an article that can motivate everybody, including me? We always see inspirational quotes posted on Instagram and shared on Facebook, but I thought it would be helpful to have all of my favorite quotes in one place so I can bookmark them and easily access them.
At times you may just need a pick-me-up and a little inspiration to get through the day. With that in mind, I thought it would be helpful to share 25 of my favorite inspirational quotes.
