20 Powerful And Inspirational Quotes


Another great year is here and a perfect way to kick-start it is to get inspired before making plans for it. You will find below a wonderful list of powerful and inspirational quotes to begin the New Year.

If you want to introduce more mindfulness in your life, a great way to welcome the New Year and to be grateful for the past year is to try my winter tea meditation.
We can see each year of our life as a chapter. We can end each of these chapters by making a summary of the most important things that happened. These are things that shaped us to become a better version of ourselves.

Let’s learn from everything that this past year has thought us. After learning our lessons, we can prepare our mind for the new year. Many of us tend to make plans every time a new year begins, because we see it as the perfect opportunity to restart and improve our life.

I will not give any advice regarding the plans you will make for the next year. Because we are all different and we aspire to different goals in life, we might not need the same type of advice.

But I would like to inspire your year with these wonderful quotes. I hope these powerful quotes will help and guide you throughout the next year. Come back to this list whenever you need a boost of inspiration.

Just remember to breathe when you feel overwhelmed by life. Being present in the moment will help you see how everything will fall into place. Let these quotes inspire the new chapter of your life!

    These quotes are so nice! I especially liked #14 because it’s so very true. The more wisdom you have the more you realize that changing people or the world is way too much to focus on, especially when everyone has so much self-improvement to do…besides, being the best person you can be is so much more inspiring for others than telling or showing them who they should be.

    Thanks for sharing these quotes! Nothing like a great quote to encourage!
