The stars nail it YET AGAIN.
As great as you may feel, we all have days where we can use a little boost. Sometimes these boosts come in the form of your local barista giving you a free latte, or snagging that last parking spot. But there are times when it seems like that positive thing that can turn your day around never comes.
There are a lot of negative things in the world that can wear us down — try watching the news for 10 minutes. If we are constantly bombarded with negativity, death, and destruction, it can chip away at our very happiness. It's difficult to stay positive when there's nothing positive in the messages you get.
On the flipside, there are times when everything is so upbeat and positive on social media that you can look at your life and feel down. Why isn't your spouse perfect and thoughtful? Why aren't your adorable every minute of every day?
Life is messy and sometimes not fun, but you have to keep going and thrive. You have to find things that help you to survive the not-so-fun times, the times when your computer breaks down or you break up with a boyfriend. You can do affirmations and visualizations to keep yourself upright and on track. Everything will get better and you're strong enough to ride out the bad until you get to the good.
Sometimes we just need to find inspiration and empowerment where we can, and that's why empowering quotes can be so helpful and healthy for us.
Empowering quotes can be the spirit pick-me-up that you need. You may need some a tiny bit of wisdom or a little dose of "I'm surviving and thriving, so can you." We need to get reminded that we're strong, capable, and smart. We may have a moment where we're down, but will get up again, stronger and better than ever.
Here are the zodiac signs as empowering quotes.
Aries is courageous, adventurous, energetic and confident. They like people who can keep up with their fast pace and high energy level. Aries can be unnecessary daredevils at times, but that's what you do when there isn't much that scares you.
