5 Hopeful Messages To Spread During Quarantine
This has been one year of a month, and we still have another day to go before April. Unfortunately it looks like we’ll have even longer to go before we’re done flattening the curve, with projections saying it’ll take a few weeks to reach the peak in New York City alone. So we’d thought we’d quick share five inspirational and hopeful quotes to get us all through this, enjoy!
“But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.”
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
The times may seem dark and scary now, but times like these are when people’s good qualities shine the brightest.
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
Never be afraid to spread a positive message or shy away from cheering someone up. Now is the perfect time to practice spreading positivity. After all, #positivityiscontagious
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
- Maya Angelou
While we’re stuck indoors, remember that we need to do more than just get by. Smile, laugh, read, play music, and find ways to thrive.
“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
- Jack Kornfield
On the other hand, remember to be kind to yourself. This is a stressful time, and naturally we’re all going to be a little down. Don’t be hard on yourself for not doing everything you wanted to get done.
“In a gentle way you can shake the world.”
And finally, remember that you can still change the world for the better. Even if you don't have too many options these days, you can still do the little things like choose to reuse over choosing disposables when you can and making sure to recycle. Every little thing helps.
