I think we’re all going through a little bit of a hard time right now, amirite? I mean, how many of us have had to go through extended quarantine and isolation? Here are 50 words of encouragement for hard times to help you get through this time and any other tough time you may be going through right now.
I know sometimes it’s hard to actually believe when someone tells you “things will be ok” but the truth of the matter is, things will be ok! You just have to believe.
Besides me reading words of encouragement all the time (and writing them too on inspirational quotes posters) I not only let them sink in hard but every time I have a negative thought I think of 3 positive things.
This little exercise really helps me get through some difficult and stressful times. Please try it next time you have some negative thoughts. Imagine if you have 10 negative thoughts in one day, you’ve just replaced them with 30 positive ones! How awesome is that?
