My Favorite 25 Quotes For 'Not Giving Up'

I want to begin today's post with a Big Thank You! :)
Thank you for all the wonderful comments you left me in my last post. Truly, you made me feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. Our connection is 'very special.'- beyond all obligations.
My blogging friends and readers have a very special place in my life, and I am so glad to tell you that, "you make me feel important. I feel belonged. I feel determined and motivated (all-the-time) to continue my journey towards achieving my dream. So Thank You from the bottom of my heart for your continued love and support. I wish to bring you more positive and inspiring posts in the coming days. So please stay with me!

Life is never as beautiful as it looks on our social pages. Agree?  But we try (really) hard to keep it beautiful and happening even in our real lives. Doesn't matter what comes our way, we must keep going to achieve "best results" in life- be it in your career, at work, or in personal life. So we must find a source(s) that can help us keep moving toward our goals; a little stronger will power to push us through all kinds of hurdles.

So quotes can be one of life's greatest sources of motivation; especially during those times, when you feel like giving up. Every time I feel like I'm not doing enough to reach my goals, or some uncertain fears try to scare me from moving ahead- I try reading these 'words of wisdom' from all great and successful people, to continue my journey fearlessly.

When things go wrong in life, some small reminders like these, can help us stay in our path, without any worries or fears.

And do let me know your thoughts about today's post. Would love to hear from you.

I know we are already half way through March when I am doing my first post of the month. But I have been so so busy lately, taking care of my two kids, and also with some health issues (that's demanding more rest and less sleepless nights from me). So I am sorry for not being consistent in posting every week. But I will try my best to update new posts in the blog. So please stay with me.


  1. I love so many of these uplifting quotes... I love inspiring quotes which I collect on my Pinterest page which I use on my blog, Twitter and Instagram ♡♡♡

  2. I really feel inspired by your selection of quotes. They do speak to me! Some of them I knew before, but some I've now read for the first one. I love that quite about how courage can be a little voice telling us not to give up. It is so true. To keep going on, no matter what, is so important. It doesn't matter how slowly we might be going, what matters is that we keep going. I also love that quote by Jung about how we are not what has happened to us but what we decide to be. I love Carl Jung and I love reading his books but I have never came across this quite before. It is so meaningful! It is very liberating to know that we're not limited by the conditions of our lives, we can always be more than our doesn't matter if our surroundings are good or bad, what matters is the way we are.... Whatever we do, we must not remember to live our life to the fullest.

    get plenty of sleep and don't worry about blog. True readers will always stick around!
