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.
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!
What an inspiring post – I try to stay positive and hopeful by reminding myself of everything in my life that I’m grateful for…
That’s awesome, Kate!

I think it’s important to have others hold hope in you and to have a reliable tribe to lean on. Thank you for sharing!
Thank you for your feedback, Nikki!
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.
Thank you, Angela, we are in this together, to lift each other up.
I always try my best to stay positive and focus on the good things in my life. This post was a great reminder of how important it is to stay positive and keep moving forward!
Thank you, Patricia!
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!!
I love that quote, Stephanie, and I have it on my computer desktop to remind me of the little things which can bring me happiness.
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.
Thank you, Lois!
Having an attitude of gratitude really changes everything. Love yournpositive attitude!
Gratitude goes a long way. It can help a little while we sort things out and keep moving forward. Thanks for sharing a few of your favorites.
It sure does, Dennis!
GIRL! I LOVE THIS so much. Some days those clouds are just too much! But we’ve got to keep moving ahead!
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.
So true, Christa!
Beautiful. This makes me think of a sermon I heard once when I was in high school at church, about “pickle days” – Some days are just “sour pickle days,” and that’s OK, because God still loves us and tomorrow will be better!
I love it, Flossie!
Thank you for your positive thoughts, really loved the content.

I do love that every week, day, or hour can be a fresh start. It brings me such joy to know that there can always be hope in something new.
I agree, Rachel!
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!
That is my aim, Abby!

I needed a nice little pick-me-up today! Sometimes we gotta pick ourselves up and keep moving! Love the quote about tea.
