18 Quotes Everyone Needs To Hear

I am a huge fan of inspirational quotes, here are a few that I really love and remind me to have a positive outlook on life!


Sometimes I'll be feeling down and I'll look at some inspirational quotes and it will remind me that a lot of times whatever bad mood I am in can be changed by just changing my mindset or looking on the bright side of things. As the semester gets closer to finals season, I think it is really important to keep up good mental health and remind ourselves that we have the power to control our lives.

1. "It's not all sunshine and rainbows but a good amount of it actually is"


2. Care more


This quote fires me up! This is the greatest advice on how to live your life. Care more, feel everything. Life is so short and we should try to feel everything and use everything we have while we can.

3. "Become more aware of what's really worth your energy"


This is so important. Let's stop wasting energy on people and things that don't matter ladies and gentlemen!!!

4. "Don't treat people as bad as they are. Treat them as good as you are"


5. "Always pray. . ."


If we can achieve this, I think then we will know peace.

6. "Let your life surprise you"


7. "Make peace with your broken pieces"


Once you do this, the game is changed.

8. Honesty is beautiful


9. PREACH Sophia!!


10. "You are right where you need to be"


11. "It's never too late to be whoever you want to be"


12. "Life is too short, and happiness is too rare"


I think we all should take more risks, especially if the outcome could make us even happier than we already are.

13. "If it costs you your peace it's too expensive"


14. "Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy"


Even when horrible things happen in the world, beautiful things still occur. I think it is important to remember the beauty even when times are tough, because that beauty can help us get past the bad.

15. "Never apologize for your enthusiasm"


I hate when people get mad at others for being excited about something. We should encourage everyone to be as enthusiastic about everything as they can, because there is nothing more boring than toning yourself down for others.

16. "Chase your curiosity"


Ladies, I'm looking at you! Stop chasing stupid boys and start chasing your passions in life!

17. "You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try"


I love Dolly Parton. I think she is an icon and I think she gives a lot of great life advice. This is a quote I really love, because there are a lot of times I want to do something, but I am afraid of what other people will think, or I am afraid of failing, or I am afraid of rejection. But just a bit of bravery and you can do a lot, instead of holding yourself back.

18. "Lukewarm is no good"


I don't know how many times I'm going to say it, but having passion is so important. I hate people who don't show their feelings or think they are too cool to be passionate about something they love openly. I think it is so important to let everyone know how you feel and let everyone know what you like. Walking around indifferent is no good. Lukewarm is no good.

To the guy that shot my brother...


To the guy that shot my brother,

On January 9, 2019 my families entire life changed with one phone call. The phone call that my little brother had been shot in the face, no other details. We didn't need any other details. The woman on the phone who called us in full panic told us where he was so we went, as soon as possible. I don't think it helped that not even 10 min prior I talked to Zach on the phone.. kind of irritated with him, and the ONE TIME I didn't say 'I love you' as we hung up. Could've been the last time we ever spoke.. I remember pulling up to the hospital thinking 'this can't be real' 'it's not our Zach' 'this is just a dream Sarah, WAKE UP' I'd close my eyes really tight just to open them, I was still in the hospital emergency parking lot. I could still hear the ambulance sirens coming. It was all real.

The day our life's changed was definitely a test of faith. A test of how strong we were, as a family. I sat in that waiting room ready to see the damage that has been done to my sweet baby brother. Because at that point we had no idea how lucky he got. That glimpse of seeing Zach will haunt me forever. How helpless I felt in that exact moment frequently wakes me up from these horrific dreams I've been having ever since that day. That is a moment burned into my me and families brain forever.

You always hear about these things in the movies or on the news, a house being shot up, someone shooting another innocent person, not to care if they died on your watch. But we found ourselves on the news.. We have been confined to the hospital since that day. Running on barely any sleep, taking shifts of sleep so we don't make ourselves sick taking care of Zach. Watching him suffer. Undergoing surgeries, to repair the damage you did.

Before I proceed let me tell you a little something about the man you shot.

Zachary Keith Wright. A blonde hair blue eyed boy. Who could potentially be the most annoying human on the planet (possibly coming from his sister). A man who loves his God first, loves his family second. Perfect by no means, but almost perfect to me. A 19 year old who was to graduate high school this month. After graduation he was prepping to leave for Marine boot camp in the summer.. being in the military has been Zach's dream since he could talk. Literally. Running around, playing war with underwear on our heads, and finger guns. Some would say we looked like natural born assassins.. growing up he has been a country boy. Let me tell ya country to the core. He loves this country like he loves his family. He believes in helping people, taking charge in what's right, and never leaving a brother behind. He's lived by that his whole life. Until now....

The day you shot him. The day not only did you change my brothers life, you changed his families life too. The day you almost ripped my brother out of this world... for what? A misunderstanding? Because you've let something take ahold of your life that you can't let go you're willing to kill someone innocent over? Luckily for him, his guardian angels were protecting him in your time of cowardice. There were 3 times that day he should've died, the time you shot him, the time you tried to shoot him again as he stared you directly in the face, (even tho he couldn't talk I know you could read his eyes, and he still intimidated you. That's why you tried to pull the trigger again) and the time he was running out of the house. But he lived. A man who was shot in the face, didn't lay there helpless, didn't scream in agony. That MAN walked to the neighbors to get help. Why? Because he's a MAN, and because he's on this earth for a reason.

It's gonna sound a little strange not only to you, but the audience who is reading this. I must say thank you. Even in this situation, this was the best outcome we could get. He gets to live. He will make a full recovery. He will graduate. And he will go off into the Marines. You united my family together. Closer than ever. Thank you. You tested our faith and brought us closer to our God. Thank you. Because of your moment of weakness, you showed us what prayer could do. Heal anything. Thank you. This was a bump in the road, and a helluva way to kick off our year of 2019. But here we are.. all laying in the hospital. I'm looking around as mom is sleeping in her recliner chair exhasted but still here, Zach his awake playing his xbox all hooked up to machines, fighting to heal and get better. And of course I'm writing this letter to you.

See you in trial,

From the girl whose brother you shot.
