10 Quotes To Hype You Up When Feeling Down

There are distinct slumps a few times a year; whether it be on a stint of miserably rainy weeks, mid-winter with early sundown, or the mid-semester blues, it’s inevitable. But instead of spending our time dreading the painful routine, let’s try to find a little inspiration in words. The excitement, wanderlust, and optimism will roll through us with each quote. So, without further ado, here are 10 quotes that make me hype about life.


1. “We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” -Jawaharlal Nehru


2. “Listen to your gut. The pull. Don’t be afraid. If you can’t stop thinking about it then you want it, have wanted it, and will continue to want it. Dive straight in and ride it out. The wave will carry you. Simply trust the water.” -Victoria Erickson


3. “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” -Nietzsche


4. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” -Ferris Bueller


5. “Someday everything will make perfect sense. So, for now, laugh at the confusion smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.” -John Mayer


6. “I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.” -Roald Dahl


7. “It can be coins or sports or horses or politics or music or faith… The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary because there’s nothing to make it last.” -Nicholas Sparks


8. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” -Steve Jobs


9. “You should never regret anything in life. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.” -Victoria Holt


10. “I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald


Consider saving one of these pictures and making it the background of your phone to motivate you each time your screen lights up.  It doesn’t matter if it’s on a rainy day, or you face a reminder of a devastating past event, or a serious chemical imbalance in the brain. If you for any reason feel like you’re on a path that only goes down, then never fail to seek help. Mental health is not something to make light of; if you find yourself in a bad place, talk to someone.  Seek out family, friends, teachers, and doctors for help. Everything happens for a reason. Although it might be hard to see through an optimistic lense during tough times, it’s important to remember that there’s always a rainbow after a rainstorm. Mental health is not something to make light of; if you find yourself in a bad place, then talk to somebody.
