Benjamin Franklin once said, “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” Why not do both? After all, 2017 has been a roller-coaster ride for many, and if you survived it, you may have found some gems in the sand. It’s about time to share that inspiration; touch your friends and family’s hearts by sending out a bit of motivation for the year to come. If you’re stuck at what to say, maybe these motivational quotes can help you get rolling:

Motivational Quotes #1

Forget about maintaining a glorified Instagram feed; the real you is more than those premeditated shots. If you know someone who is struggling with their self-confidence, perhaps this is one quote you should send.

This quote sums up all the good in the world. 2017 was the year of many victories and challenges, but at all times, it’s good to remember to be the better man (or woman) and rise above the circumstance – with a swagger. Some of those situations must have left one frustrated, but keeping these words in mind will reinforce the fact that they made better choices.

Motivational Quotes #3
“Do Something Great”

Motivational Quotes
It’s another year. Another beginning. It’s just right to remind someone that they could start again and, better yet, aim for a higher goal. Go to college. Start a business. Pursue a passion. Use this quote to give them a tap on the back; tell them you believe them, and you’d be cheering them on.

Motivational Quotes #4
“You Matter”

With so many voices screaming loud in real life and in social media, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd. But being a small voice doesn’t mean they have no right to be heard. This quote may just be the acknowledgment one needs – they matter, and they’re worth it.

“Planet Earth First”

Motivational Quotes
The result of climate change has been felt strongly in 2017. This 2018, this quote gives a perfect reminder to prioritize the needs of the planet – a little change, such as reducing carbon footprints, recycling, making better decisions as a consumer – can make a difference.

Okay; so maybe things did not work out in 2017. Maybe there were mistakes made. This is the season to stop being serious and let out a genuine laugh. Not only will it make one’s outlook brighter, it also decreases the number wrinkles on your face!

Motivational Quotes #9
“Let’s Adore and Endure Each Other”

Hiya, I’m Maud. I’m an English girl who's moved to Berlin - because who wouldn’t fall in love with a country which has words like ‘Kummerspeck’ hidden around every corner... I love traveling and finding out the quirks of each country - and what better way to remember them than on a postcard?
