Uplifting Quotes & Affirmations to get through a Difficult Time
This post is in observance to this “Mental Health Month” of May. This is especially dedicated to those who are still waiting, wondering, and who might be already at their wits’ end with things. I know for many including myself, this quarantine/shutdown/stay at home stuff is getting L O N G. It has been frustrating to say the least in many ways for everyone. Add to it that this all started (at least in the US) when we were already in a season popular for sickness, anxiety, depression, and suicides. I want to share a few thoughts, and some uplifting quotes great for meditating or praying over for yourself during this time. No matter what side you take on things, what your beliefs are, what rules you choose to follow, we all need to keep going.
During this quarantine, I have been trying to keep a list of positives, and focus on new things to try. You can see what I did, and maybe try some of the ideas yourself from this blog post. If you follow me on Instagram, you may notice I try to ask engaging questions on my posts every so often. I really liked the responses I received under this post, when I asked “What have you learned during this quarantine?” Seeing how others have progressed and evolved themselves through this has been encouraging for me.

What have you learned during this quarantine? Even if it's something that seems silly (I learned to like brussel sprouts!) I want to hear about it – you might get featured in my next post! *Comment below or dm me!* . . Anyone else running out of ideas for things to do during this neverending quarantine? This post is for you! I am almost done with my holistic remedies course, and already deciding on what to try next. You can see what else I am learning or trying in the meantime by checking out this post. *Link in bio!* . . #theneverendingquarantine #thingstodoathome #beatboredom #killthevirus #homeownerlife #quarantinegoals #quarantinediaries #quarantinerecipes #creativemindsatwork #trynewthings #trythisathome #alwayslearningsomethingnew #newrecipes #thebeautyoflearning #selfcareroutine #healthylifestyletips #selfcareinspo #holisticcommunity #holisticlifestyle #selfcareblogger #balanceandblessings #lifestyleblogging #wellnessadvocates #cookinghealthy #socialmediamanagement #healthcoaching
Here were some of the answers. They were not all just like, I baked a cake or something. I thank those who were transparant enough to share what they learned about themselves, and did get permission from a few to share their responses here:
“I learned I can run 7 miles without stopping” – @whiteclawsandpaws
“I’ve learned I had more patience than I originally thought with my kids” – @rockit_sockets
Uplifting Quotes & Affirmations
Another way I have tried to stay positive was by keeping a list of uplifting quotes and affirmations on my Pinterest page. Here are some favorites I found that I think would be relevant and encouraging for many during this difficult time. These are great to meditate on, and pray over yourself. *All graphics made by me.
Happy thoughts and prayers for all who are struggling with depression and mental illness during this time.
