Mindful Monday ~Wk 1

I love a good quote.

My home has them on its walls. My classroom has them on its doors. My phone has them stored away for inspiration. So I thought I would share my favourites, in a new weekly project, Mindful Monday.

Monday, the start of the working week, the one day I perhaps need the most inspiration to get me through the next 5 days until the weekend!

I hope you enjoy them. I hope they inspire you or perhaps let you take a moment to pause in this whirlwind of a journey. So let’s kick the project off with this one.

How unbelievably true …

This is my quickest post to write, yet one which has taken me some time to put together.

I was scrolling through the Camera Roll on my phone and laughed to myself, as mixed in among the photos of my children, days out, views that I had captured and the odd selfie of my 3 year old… were some of my favourite quotes that I had unknowingly been collecting.

I enjoy words. Words can inspire; make us smile; make us cry; make us appreciate and make us think.

So I wanted to share with you some of my favourites:

My friend sent me this one when I was pregnant with my son. Ironically, I received it the same day that we went for our 4d scan. I loved the sentiment and have kept it ever since.

I take huge pride from other people commenting on my 3 year old’s manners and his ability to be independent. He recently won the ‘Rainbow Ranger’ Award at pre-school for consistently sharing, tidying up and being polite. I was immensely proud of him. This quote is one which I will always have in the back of my mind as my children grow up.


I’m a relatively new mum, but I have learnt more about love and life in the last 3 and a half years, than I ever have done before.


For my husband:


For my mum:


For my friends:


My amazing friend, Sarah sent me this a while ago. I love it:


For the dreamer and believer in me:


For the teacher in me:


We have this on a canvas in our hallway, I read it every morning as I walk down the stairs:


For when life gets tough:


For the humble:


…and finally, this represents my family’s ordinary life. Our extra-ordinary life, which I wouldn’t change for the world.


Do you have any quotes which are sentimental to you that you would like to share?
