Positive Quotes For Hopeful Notes | Quotes Posts!

A While back , I wrote a post called " How to... Hopeful Note" I recommend you read that one before this post or you probably won't have a clue what I'm going on about ! But assuming that you've read that one, I've got a confession. I've stopped leaving hopeful notes ( post it notes in random places with positive messages on for strangers to find ) I've been busy and a bit down and to be honest they're rubbish excuses. Leaving hopeful notes used to be one of the things that always made my day as well as hopefully the day of whoever found it .. or at least helped them crack a smile !

So, no more excuses. I might be busy and snowed under with college work but I love the hopeful notes and I had a passion for random acts of kindness that I didn't even notice I'd forgotten ! From now on I will leave at least one hopeful note every week and to motivate me to do that , There will be a picture of it at the end of each Monday post :) If you know about the hopeful notes or have read my post about it then I'd love for some of you to do the same thing and maybe even pop a picture of your hopeful note in the comments ! If you're stuck for ideas of positive quotes for your hopeful notes then here's a few to get you going :)

" The darkest hour has only sixty minutes "
-Morris Mandel

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that. "
-Martin Luther King

"Some days there won't be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. "
- Emory Austin

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life thinking it's stupid"
- Albert Einstein

"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses"
- Abraham Lincoln

  3. LOVE THIS IDEA LIKE WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE! I really love doing this too, my life has been a struggle the last few months and I find if I'm having a really bad day, I will write some little quotes down and go hide them in Library books or pockets of clothing and if I have some lose change I put that it in there too. There is also someone who does it in supermarkets in my town as well, it really does brighten up your day and just knowing that it will make someone smile is such an amazing feeling. I really love your advice about writing down what you need to hear in this moment, there is that quote by Eve Ensler "You have to give to the world the thing that you want the most, in order to fix the broken parts inside of you"<3 I hope you're ok Marianne, sending love and hugs your way and don't every forget the amazing, positive and inspiring person that you are! You do such an amazing job at inspiring and uplifting! xoxo

    1. I'm sorry that you've been struggling lately, I'm sending big hugs and really hope it gets better soon <3 I would definitely recommend leaving hopeful notes because it always helps me, especially at the minute hence why I'm starting to talk about them again in blog posts :) I used to always leave them in supermarkets and just hide them behind the first thing on the shelf to make sure no one takes them away. I also love covering lifts with positive or uplifting words and then putting a big sign in the middle saying take what you need ! I love that quote, I'd never heard it before but I'm going to stick it on my wall because its really struck me :) Thank you so so much that's such a nice thing to say and it really means a lot at the minute :)

      lots of love, Marianne xxx

  4. I've put up a few hopeful notes once. I included these two quotes
    1) "Let your smile change the world, don't let the world change your smile"
    2)" when counting beautiful things , don't forget to count yourself"
    It felt good to leave those on a mirror in a store dressing room. and bathroom.
    I like that quote about thorn bushes have roses. A good reminder to always look on the bright side. :)

  10. I love that you would leave positive little notes for people <3 That is honestly the kindest thing ever!! Small acts like that can really make someones day a million time brighter. I really love the quote by Roald Dahl "If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely " That is seriously such a cute quote! Quotes always have a way to make me feel inspired, emotional, and intuitive :D Which is why I like them.
