Inspirational Quotes

by Laura on March 12, 2012

As I have been getting ready for our trip to Kauai and writing this post early, today’s post is all about having optimism.  Sometimes, things don’t go according to plan!  As parents, it is our job to put on a happy face, remember why we are doing this, and make those happy memories with our kids.   I think it is especially important to have an optimistic attitude with young kids because they will really feed off of your energy.

I’m full throttle into feeling this way today as we are {when you are reading this} in Kauai.  The governor has declared it a disaster area.  We can’t change our trip, or we lose $$, so we are going to go and hope for the best.  And have a great time no matter what…Stay tuned for some updates on that!


Here’s some quotes of inspiration to help us in those trying moments:


The true goal of any journey is not the end destination, but the accumulation of experiences along the way.  –Deron Levine


Focus on the journey, not the destination.  Joy is found not in finishing an activity, but in doing it. –Greg Anderson


Experience, travel- these are as education in themselves.   -Euripides


We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly,
but let us never lose sight of the reason for the journey,
or miss a chance to see a rainbow on the way.
-Gloria Gaither

The journey, not the arrival matters.
-T. S. Eliot


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain


I’d love to hear any quotes that help you!
