Let’s be hopeful together!


Like everyone else, I have days where everything seems to be dark, and no matter how hard I try, I can’t find a way out.  Regardless of how difficult things seem to be, I will never lose hope.  I will remain positive and keep pushing forward.

On cloudy days, I open my special notebook and read my favorite quotes to gather strength and remind myself, there is always light at the end of any tunnel.  Here are some of my favorite quotes that keep me hopeful.

We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope. M. L. K., Jr.

Only in the darkness can you see the stars.  MLK Jr.



A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success. Elbert Hubbard

You can’t swim for new horizons until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. William Faulkner


In our darkest days, God knows, how many we had, Let’s dream and hope for a better tomorrow.  If we believe, we will find hope in our heart.

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness.  Desmund Tutu

Let your hopes, not your hurts shape your future. Robert H. Schuller

Hope is like the sun, which as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. Samuel Smiles

I will keep trying; I will keep giving my best in life, and one day, I will reach my goals.  Never stop dreaming, never stop hoping, and keep thriving.

Arthur Wing Pinero speaks to me directly by saying” Where there’s tea, there’s hope.

Where there’s tea, there’s hope


Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all. Emily Dickenson

As we are about to start a new week, let’s remember to be grateful, hopeful, and everything will fall into place.

Have a blessed week!


  1. Some times I find it very hard to stay positive and focus on all the good things in my life. I try my best though and this was a wonderful reminder coming from you! Hugs!

  2. Thank you so much for this. It’s been a sad depressing day and I needed a pick me up and this has definitely helped. It’s hard to remember there’s light at the end of the tunnel sometimes. Adding the quotes you shared to my journal.

  3. Such a great idea to keep inspiring quotes close at hand. Your quote about the stars in darkness made me think of the quote from Harry Potter when Dumbledore says “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” It’s one of my favorites!!

  4. What a positive and refreshing way to start off the week. Whether they be uplifting quotes or quiet moments of contemplation, knowing our own self-help tools is a necessary first step in turning those grey days around. Thank you for the reminder to keep pushing forward.

  5. I believe in the power of words to life our spirits. I love gathering quotes and refer to them often. I also love being mindful and grateful; those are both great ways to stay hopeful and optimistic.

  6. I love that you included the inspirational quotes. I especially loved the quote ‘ only in the darkness can you see the stars.’ Such a true statement that is. I hope you have a great week and that your positive attitude touches someones else’s day!
