There is a dictionary application you can get for phone and one of the best features is the ‘Quote of the day’.
Sometimes you may find no relevance to your life at all, other times it can be right on the money. We are all going through something, all the time and inspirational words can really get us where we live.
If you are living in recovery and are looking for recovery motivation, good for you. Sometimes it’s the little things that help us and we never really know where we will find it. Sometimes we don’t even know why they work, but they do.
Why Do Words Work?
We never know why certain words work for us, it’s really a matter of what hits home for us. It doesn’t really matter, because if a motivational quote works for you, then that’s all that matters.
Words have power. The power to harm and the power to heal. They can inspire us to improve, they can make us laugh or they can just annoy us.
Here are 5 Recovery Motivational Quotes to help you get through another day.
1. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
It simply states we can’t go back in time, but we can start now with the same results. Plant that tree, you have the chance. There is never a wrong time to start. We can’t go backward to start. We have to start here.
2. If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.
We know it’s not easy, but just keep going. Once you have gotten yourself on the road to recovery, work hard to stay there.
3. People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing. That’s why we recommend it daily.
This applies to many aspects of our lives. Some people think dieting means not having potato chips for one day, then wake up shocked to the core they are still chubby. Recovery takes work, just like anything else.
4. If things go wrong, don’t go with them.
We all have setbacks. Don’t let it define you. Recovery motivation comes in many forms, staying strong and focused is the goal.
5. What progress, you ask, have I made? I have begun to be a friend to myself.
Being kind to ourselves is a very important step in recovery and one that is neglected. Self-love is very powerful, and the best way to combat your darkest demons. By being worthy.
