Inspirational Quotes Through My Lifetime
Inspirational Quotes of my Life
At age 10, I started keeping a journal of my life, what happened, what I did that specific day, if I was mad and I put quotes, love quotes and sayings that I liked in my journals. Over the years, I have collected so many that I decided to list my favorites quotes. We all have good and bad things happen in our lives and sometimes a quote or saying will make you laugh, cry, sigh or just think about where you are in your life. Capture your quotes, sayings or lifelines that have helped you. But if you don't have any or haven't started collecting your quotes then read mine! Below are a list of some of my favorite quotes whether inspirational or motivational quotes.

All quotes listed above touched me at different times in my life. The inspirational quote from my son Dax “Power up mom, you can do it!” he loved watching Power Rangers and the teenagers in this show would go from normal kids to “power up” to Power Rangers. One day I was frustrated and sad over my job and the lay offs we were facing. My son said this to me as I was cooking dinner, feeling sorry for myself and it hit me hard. I changed my attitude at that moment, I powered up and you know what, I survived the lay off.
All quotes above has a meaning to my life and most of them you can figure out. However, I want you to find the quotes that mean something to your life. My nephew says “looove you” every time he sees me and every time he leaves me. Little quotes like that mean so much and we just take it for granted.
Thirty years later, I have learned to listen more and hear what people have to say. It’s not what they are saying; it’s how they are saying it. All my good people, listen to the quotes but mostly hear the meaning!
