    Aw I love all these. 💕. Thanks for sharing !
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Hi @emilia

    Thanks for sharing these positive quotes with us. Do you or @Shaunie have any particular favourites? I think my favourite (at least this week!) has to be "you can have it all. Just not all at once"

    @emilia_e Thanks so much for sharing these!

    I think my favourite one that I've heard recently is 'Nobody's coming, nobody's coming to do it for you. If you want something done, you've got to push yourself and do it. You have it in you, you just have to believe'

    This was really helpful to pushing me to do something I'd be putting off hoping someone else would help me, knowing it was actually all in my capabilities.

    It's not quite a positive quote, but some positive lyrics. I particularly like the second half of this, encouraging people to focus on what you can do rather than what you feel you should do. Do things with heart and courage but know that we have limitations. Small steps are better than no steps.

    "Who said it's easy to be loved
    When you look over your shoulder
    And only see the wasteland?
    Just got to carry what you can
    Have the heart of a giant, but know you're a man
    Start small, grow tall"

    It's from this song called Little Giant by Roo Panes
