Hey Everyone! How’s it going? Life for me lately has been a non-stop roller coaster ride where I keep thinking the ride is almost over, but then the ride operator comes over the intercom and says “do-over”! And I don’t even like roller coasters, ya’ll.
The dynamics at my workplace have definitely changed as my supervisor resigned and as his side-kick, I’ve been left picking up a good portion of the slack for a few weeks now. To say it’s been rough would be an understatement, but thankfully last week our board hired an Interim to help with things, so a weight has definitely been lifted. Also, this person will hopefully be helping resolve some of the internal issues (aka horrible co-worker) so praying hard that everything will get worked out soon.
Anyhow, because life has been so crazy busy I haven’t had a ton of free time to dedicate to writing blog posts here lately, so in lieu of an awesome how-to post, I’m going to share some quotes that have really been keeping me motivated/inspired here lately. Hopefully something I share today inspires you as well. 🙂
Things Inspiring Me Lately…
To Find the Good In Every Day
To Stop Doubting
To Be More Confident
To Stop Wishing and Start Doing
To Have Courage
To Remember It’s About What You Learn
To Focus on the Here and Now
Hope you enjoyed today’s post, and in case you aren’t already, follow along with me on Instagram, Facebook, and Bloglovin!

Happy Wednesday!- Cara
Linking up with Wonderful Wednesday, Pin Worthy Wednesday, Wow Me Wednesday, Ladies Collective Linkup, Thursday Favorite Things, and Think Tank Thursday
These are great inspiration. I am definitely bookmarking and Bloglovin. I had office days like the one you described. Working my way out to be my own boss. Tired of the rat race and the robot lifestyle. Keep the inspiration going for all. Positivity leads to prosperity.
Thank-you for that! I really appreciate your kind words and best of luck to you! 🙂
Love all of the inspiration in this post! I truly hope that your work situation gets better. Having a terrible co-worker can make you dread going into work each and every day:(
Thanks Tif! I’m trusting that things will work out very soon 🙂
Yay for getting help!! I know it can be hard when people leave – you always worry that people will see that they can just give you more instead of quickly working to replace someone. Glad that things are looking up for you!! Love these quotes!!
Thanks Sara! Hope you’re enjoying your vacation 🙂
i hear you on the work part!!! it’s been so crazy at my office that i’ve had to leave blogging in the back-burner!
It’s hard balancing it all, especially when you have so much on your plate. Hope things settle for you soon!
Love these quotes and prints! xx
Great quotes. I totally agree with the doubt quote!
Thanks! It’s so true isn’t it?
Love your says! Stop wishing and doing is one I need to start doing more often.:D
Me too! It’s definitely a good reminder 🙂
Cara — thanks for all of these amazing reminders that life is a journey and you have to just keep going! I love this!
Thanks Chris! 🙂
Love the “something good in every day quote” so true and so important to appreciate the little things 🙂
That’s so true Caitlin!
Ahh these are beautiful, sometimes you just need a bit of inspiration to keep you going don’t you. Hope it gets a bit easier for you soon.
Thanks Alison! 🙂
When I wake up in the morning and feel like I need inspiration, I like to play songs which remind me of sunshine, water, and feeling happy. It doesn’t take long to feel unstoppable and excited for the day!
Here’s one of my favorites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRxdrus-I5c
That’s great advice! I love listening to music too when I’m in a slump.
I love this. And such a great reminder that there IS good in every day. Perfect.
Thanks Suzanne! 🙂
Thinking of you, I know how stressful work can get…I think we’ve all been there. Just think, one day at a time and there’s only so much you can do! I love all your positive inspiration. Beautiful quotes!
Thank-you Emelia! That’s just what I needed to hear because there truly is only so much you can do in a day’s time. 🙂
love all of the advice and reminders here!! confidence is my biggest struggle!!
Mine too, Elle. Having confidence is so important in all aspects of our lives.
I absolutely love this post! Inspiring others is the best feeling. I hope your roller coaster slows down soon 🙂
Thank-you Kait! 🙂
I hope works calms down for you soon, nice to see that some of the weight has been lifted by your Board hiring in an interim relief person. The quotes are motivating and uplifting – I can see why you love them!
Thanks Bree! Work is still pretty crazy but things seem to be getting better. 🙂
I love all of these! I try and find inspiration wherever i go and through the people I meet.
Thank-you! That’s great advice 🙂
Such great quotes! The wish and courage ones really spoke to me. Praying things get better at your job.
Thanks Latonya! I appreciate it! 🙂
I know exactly what you mean when you say things have been crazy because things have been crazy for me too! I’ve come to a point where I only blog once a week that way I don’t burn myself out.
It’s so hard balancing everything sometimes that I think you are right it’s better to focus on quality over quantity. 🙂
I hope your work life begins to balance out. Transitions are always so tough!
Thanks so much, I appreciate that!
Great inspiration! Hope things get better for you!
Thanks Stephanie! I appreciate it!
Loved these. As simple as they are, they are timeless and always encouraging.
Wow I love this post! Those are some great quotes! I think we are always too busy comparing ourselves to others rather than being happy with our own lives.
Thank-you! I agree Annie, if we all focused more on just the here and now and the present in our own lives, we would be much happier souls.
I love Lao Tzu. That is a very wise quote.
I agree, Liv. It really resonated with me!
All great inspiring quotes! I have been where you are when it comes to work and it sucks. It’s never fun having negative energy or having to pick up the slack of others. I hope that things get better for you really soon!
Thanks Mistle! I appreciate that!
These are awesome inspirational quotes! Sometimes life gets so crazy and hard and it feels like it is impossible to not just sit down and let it all pass us by. Hopefully things get better for you at work soon!
Thanks Ashley, I appreciate it!
Oh no sorry to hear about the work issues, I’m going back soon and not looking forward to office politics & yes horrible co-workers are the worst!! These are all amazing quotes and great reminders, I really love the last one about living in the present!
Thanks Marta! Hoping you’ll go back to a good situation as well!
Sometimes simple encouraging posts like this are the best… many times, just a few words say more than the biggest planned speech. Love all of these quotes, but mostly, I love the one from Lao Izu! Great post.. I loved it!

Aw thank-you Jacky. That’s just what I needed to hear. 🙂
Loving this inspiration gurlie! Hope things settle down at work for you soon <3
Thanks girl! 🙂
I hope things at work calm down for you soon! I can never get enough inspirational quotes.. I’m searching for a few to print and make a gallery wall
Thank-you! That’s a great idea!
These are beautiful quotes. I totally agree with you on the rollercoaster thing… except I like to equate life to being more of an amusement park? Sometimes you get stuck on the same roller coaster, sometimes you get to go grab ice cream. Changes at work are never the best when they happen, but hopefully the situation will improve with this new person.
Sending love and light.
Thanks Chelsea! I like your comparison better because it involves ice cream 😉 haha!
I love all these quotes! Just what I needed to hear today. I hope work gets a little better for you! xx
Thanks Kristen! Glad it helped you too 🙂
Really great reminders! It’s so easy for me to get wrapped up and almost buried in the daily work, parenting, house, etc that it’s so refreshing to see a few inspiring reminders to slow down and be at peace 🙂
That’s so true Liz! Sometimes our day to day lives can consume us if we let them but its important to slow down and focus on relaxing sometimes.
I hope things get better at work for you! these are great quotes to keep you going. I love it.
Thanks so much! 🙂
Thanks for sharing all of the quotes! They’re all encouraging in their own way, and I needed some inspiration. I do hope things get better for you at work.
Thank-you, I appreciate that!
I love these quotes, that admiring someone else’s beauty without questioning yours is such great advice!
I agree Nikki!
I’m glad there is relief on the horizon for you! Thanks for the uplifting quotes. My favorite was “Admire someone elses beauty without questioning your own.” Spot on.
Thank-you! Yes, it’s so important to remember that!
I LOVE – the doubt one. I needed needed that today!!
You’re so welcome 🙂
Awesome quotes! I’ve always loved the one about admiring someone else’s beauty and the picture of the two birds 🙂
Thanks! It’s such a great reminder!
Wish / do speaks to me.
Things have been crazy here too. I hope it slows down for you, and me, and everyone! ha.
Thank-you! Haha- some days I seriously feel like I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if things weren’t hectic/crazy, but definitely hoping things slow down soon for all of us 🙂
OH man I feel you on the work thing, that happened to me and then I got shingles from the stress of it all! Well among other things, but I think that is what triggered it. Glad that they finally got someone in to help you. Loving all of these quotes!
Thanks Sarah! I’m hoping it’s all going to calm down soon. 🙂
I love all of these and they are much needed. I hope that your work situation gets better!
I hope work becomes less stressful now that you have an interim coming. Thanks for sharing the quotes! I always love seeing what’s inspiring people. 🙂
Thanks Crystal! & You’re welcome 🙂
Aw Cara, I love this post! Definitely inspiring for everyone. Sorry you’ve been dealing with all of that at work. Bad co-workers can definitely be toxic, plus all the extra work! Thinking of you, and thanks for the encouraging words.
Thanks Jennifer, I really appreciate it!
Hope things get better. I love a good quote- sometimes they really are what help you get through things!
Thank-you! I agree, they can be so helpful 🙂
I love these! I can only imagine what you have been going through at work. I used to work for a place that was beyond hectic. I had to keep reminding myself to cherish the small good things, because it was the only thing to get me through the day. I hope it gets better for you really soon!
Thanks Erin! I appreciate that, and that’s great advice. 🙂
I needed all this encouragement myself today – thanks!
hope things calm down at work for you soon!
Thank-you! So glad it helped you too 🙂
I love me some inspirational quotes! I hope work calms down for you some-hang in there! 🙂
Thanks girl! 🙂
I hope work calms down a bit for you! Sounds really stressful but like it might be getting better soon!
Thank-you! 🙂 It definitely has been stressful, but slowly but surely it’s getting better.
Love the doubt quote and beauty-related quote. Love these little pick-me-ups! Thank you for sharing.
Thanks, I love those too! 🙂
Just what I needed today. I hope your week gets a little better Cara! Thinking of you xo
Thank-you! Glad it helped you as well 🙂
My thoughts and hugs are with you. Bad week here, we lost my grandma this week but I always try to find the good in every day and the fact that the sun is going to shine when we bury her tomorrow gives me comfort.
Aw, bless your heart Andrea. I’m so sorry for your loss! Praying for comfort for you and your family, and I appreciate your kind words as well.
Ugh I’m sorry that work has been a rough go of it lately. I hope that the Interim person helps lighten the load a bit! Loving the inspiration today!
You should link this up with Jessi and I!
Thank-you! It has gotten much easier since the Interim has came on board, thankfully. & I will 🙂
Loving these quotes! Such good reminders.
Thanks, and I agree. Definitely good to reflect on quotes from time to time.
All so inspiring <3 Thank you for this, dear!
You’re so welcome! 🙂
Love these! I especially like the one about depression. Sometimes people do get stuck in the past.
Thank-you! That one resonated with me the most too! It can be challenging to focus on living in the present, but it’s the best thing for being content.
Love these! The flamingo/ peacock one is one I need to start doing more often.
Thanks Kelly! I agree, it’s a great reminder!
Love these! I’m such a sucker for quotes 🙂 I’d seen the peacock meme this week and screen shotted it because it’s such a great reminder!
Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
Thanks Casey! It’s a beautiful reminder!
Hope things get better at work for you. I try to find 10 good things everyday to be thankful for. Love your says.
Thanks Candy! That’s great advice- there’s always something good in every day 🙂
