Quotes Every Twenty Something Year Old Needs To Read

Sometimes you just need a little reminder that everything’s going to be okay. A pick-me-up when you’re feeling like nothing’s going right. I made a journal of positive quotes that I like to read every now and then. Here are some of my favorites …


“Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.”


“Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.”


“Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you decide to enjoy your life.”

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” – Oscar Wilde


“Be who you needed when you were younger.”


“It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius


“What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it’s supposed to be.”


“Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best.”


“Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to, it’s not for them.”

“Maybe the tourney isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you so that you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”


“Holding onto anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” – Buddha

“Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.”


“For what it’s worth: It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald


“I was dying. First I was dying to finish high school and start college. And then I was dying to finish college and start working. And then I was dying to marry and have children. And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school so I could return to work. And then I was dying to retire. And now, I am dying … and suddenly, I realize I forgot to live. “


“How I got better- Spend money. Change your hairstyle. Sell your old clothes and pursue your new style with the money you get from it. Be strong. Be patient. Get drunk if you want to, but not every weekend. Buy a chocolate bar every week when your favorite TV show is on. Take hot baths. Wake up early. Start jogging. Write. Find a friend who will listen to you and don’t stop until you find it. Study. Read. Make your instagram cool. Write some more. Get that damn piercing. Buy bath bubbles and bath more. Adore your body. Shave, for yourself. Book flights for next spring. Write this day down, write it all down. Cry. Finally feel some homesickness. Learn to be in silence. Learn to stand being alone. Drink lots of coffee. Get ready for Christmas. Feel smart at school. Spend a weekend alone. Take lots of selfies. Eat chocolate while watching reality TV shows. Meditate. Stretch. Learn ballet. Buy overpriced coffee. Learn to be with yourself.”
