“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin” – Mother Teresa

Some days seem harder than others. On these days, mistakes seem magnified and the insults cut a little deeper. Some days life is way too hard.

Over the years, there have been plenty of days when the world felt like it was caving in – blocking the light, blocking the hope. On these days, I once panicked until it felt like my anxiety would hold my spirit hostage forever.

But through God’s healing grace and the awareness to look for inspiring things to revive my spirit, the shadows are beginning to give way to clarity, peace and the return of hope.

An important part of my healing journey is to read uplifting quotes. I allow the words to cleanse my soul like a soothing ointment. Here are 10 uplifting quotes that are like medicine for my soul when life is hard:
