There’s something about them that just really sparks something in me to get up and continue on. Over the years, I’ve found some quotes that I absolutely love and I feel like these can shine at least a little bit of light on any gloomy day.

I know what it’s like to have such a bad day and not knowing how to get that spark of motivation back. It really sucks. By sharing these quotes, I hope to help anybody who is having a hard day. So if you’re searching for a little bit of motivation yourself or you’re just interested in seeing my favorite quotes, then here are 15 of my favorite motivational quotes!

Hey! I'm Amanda Burnett. I discovered that writing was my passion when I was younger. Then I became obsessed with makeup and everything beauty related. Once I knew what a blog was, I knew that I wanted to create one of my own. I wanted a place to just ramble about whatever is going on in my life and to talk beauty as well!

  1. Normally, I would go with #11 too but your #15 “Challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” is a quote that I had never seen before and it fits me to a T 🙂
