Motivational and Life Quotes

Tis the season to catch a cold.
I hate being sick.. as does everyone.  But when I'm sick,  it's TERRIBLE! My husband avoids me like the plague.  I have hardly any energy for my kids,  but yet I have to muster up as much as I can for them.  All I want to do is lay around and hide from the world,  but you can't do that once you're a mother. 

I need a distraction. A pick-me-up to help me keep going while I'm sick. 
 I want to share some of my favorite inspirational,  and life quotes to help myself get back on my feet and get stuff done even though I don't feel like it. Here are some of my favorite quotes. 

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”-Stephen King

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”-Helen Keller

“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”-David Brinkley

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”-Thomas J. Watson

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”-Lucille Ball

“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”-J. K Rowling

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Life is trying things to see if they work.”-Ray Bradbury

“The No. 1 reason people fail in life is that they listen to their friends, family, and neighbors.”-Napoleon Hill

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.”-Steve Jobs

I hope these quotes have helped you as they have helped me.  Please share so others can get some inspiration in their day.
