7 Relatable Quotes To Live By

Just a few quotes that are relatable to everyone.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

When the word “quote” is said, what do you normally think? Do you think it is going to be about love, trust, relationships, or life? Well, sometimes quotes have hidden meanings and messages, but most are straight-forward. When we read them, all of us interpret them in different ways. Maybe you have a favorite quote or two or ten that you live by or just absolutely love because you can relate to them well. Here are some relatable and inspirational quotes:

  • “Change doesn’t come in nickels and dimes. It comes in dedication and sweat.” – Toni Sorenson. If you want to make a change, even if it is small, money isn’t the answer. Working for what you want to achieve is the key.
  • “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” – Vince Lombardi. No one is perfect, but if we keep chasing after perfection we will attain excellence. Excellence is great. Just keep working at it, you will get there (even when sometimes it seems impossible).
  • “What takes us back to the past is memories. What brings us forward is our dreams.” – Jeremy Irons. Memories are made so we can look back to all the great times that we have had with people we love. Although we must keep moving forward, our dreams are what push us. You have dreams (sometimes we don’t see them right away), just keep going; you will find them.
  • “I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.” – Unknown. All of us have hard times that we went through. We survived them because whatever we were going through made us stronger. Life happens and sometimes it isn’t easy; all we can do is keep pushing forward. Make that fire inside you burn brighter than ever.
  • “It’s okay to be a glow stick. Sometimes we have to break before we shine.” – Unknown. Everyone has those moments where nothing is going right and it feels like everything is falling apart no matter how hard you try. Sometimes breaking down is a good thing, all we can do is go up from there. You will shine, give it time.
  • “There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either in or you’re out. There’s no such thing as life in-between.” – Pat Riley. This one is straight-forward, but it is true. You can’t live your life with commitment to some things and not others. You either commit to it all, or don’t commit to anything.
  • “Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them.” – Unknown. Opportunities do not wait for you to accept them. If you take too long, they move on to other people that it was opened to. Do not wait because then you miss out. You never know when or if you will get another opportunity like it.

Some days feel like they are never going to end; that bad luck will never stop. We all know that feeling. Just remember a storm can only go on for so long until the sun shines through. Never give up, you never know what is going to be waiting for you when your storm is finally over. Always remember every day is a new day, a new start.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
