When things get a little blue and life gets a little tough, we find ourselves looking for and finding inspiration in so many things every single day. Here are some quotes that some of our guests have found inspirational and that have spoken to our hearts. We hope these gives you inspiration too — both for life and for your next painting session!
“Do what you love.”
Because sometimes life demands so much of us, and there are so many obligations and responsibilities to fulfill. Let’s do what we love once in a while.
“Live life happy.”
Simple, but true. We all need this reminder, and it’s comforting that this is coming from our cute favourite donkey, Eeyore, from Disney’s Winnie The Pooh! Listen to Eeyore, folks.
“Be kind always.”
Whether it’s holding the door open for a stranger, remembering to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, or simply letting a friend or family member know how much they mean to you, kindness is always needed in this world. Put a smile on someone’s face!
“All things are possible if you believe.”
If you harbour a huge dream in your heart or are currently chasing one, maybe you need this reminder. All things are possible if we believe and if we’re willing to work for it. Keep fighting on, warrior!
“Pay attention to the little things.”
The big things in life take up so much of our time, effort, and attention, but take it from Pooh bear — pay attention to the little things. Like the beauty of a butterfly that lands on your nose to say hello.
“I can accept failure but I can’t accept not trying.”
They say half the battle is lost if we fail to try, so try. Always try. There is no failure inherent in trying, there is only the failure to try. Remember that.
Yay! Three cheers for positivity and optimism, because that’s definitely what we all need right now, along with a bunch of flowers to brighten everything up.
“There is no better time than now to start living healthy.”
Whatever ‘healthy’ may mean to you — a new environment, a new job, a new house, new friends or people you choose to surround yourself with, a new diet or fitness routine — now’s a great time to start doing it. Just remember that it is never too late to change something in your life you wish to change.
“You’re stronger than you seem.”
Whatever it is you’re struggling with right now, remember this. You’re stronger than you think you are. And you will get through this.
“Let go of things you cannot control.”
This one is so simple, yet so important to truly recognise and understand. Too often we try to control things in our lives that are simply not ours to control, and it upsets us when things don’t go the way we want. Let’s learn to choose acceptance and patience instead of control.
“Let all you do be done in love.”
This Bible verse is applicable to everyone, regardless of religion or race. Let the things we do for our loved ones and for ourselves always be done with love.
“If you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.”
Great advice for all of us – living boring, normal lives. It’s time to unleash your inner amazing. Start with doing things out of the norm!
“Live your dream.”
Every dream, big or small. Let’s make it a reality.
“Do small things with great love.”
And while dreaming all you can, don’t forget this motto to remember for life. It will not just make your life happier, but the lives of those around you as well.
Live. Laugh. Love.
And most importantly,
Live life to the fullest. Love unconditionally. And laugh till your stomachs hurt.
