With all things in life, I believe in turning to others for the power of inspiration. I often feel humbled by their words, because it’s so easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you always know what’s best for yourself. Whether for work, school, my personal life, my health goals, or simply for lifelong advice, I cherish inspirational words that others contribute to my outlook on life. I’ve compiled some of my favorite quotes to share with you; may they leave you feeling curious, motivated, assured, and inspired, as they have for me!
