Often times on my way home from work I think of inspirational quotes that I try and live my life by. Some of them are recovery based as I am a recovering alcoholic and drug addict.

Here are a few that mean a lot to me.

Do you have any that you like? Feel free to add them.

Find what makes your heart sing and start a choir.

This by far is my favorite quote I have ever thought of.

Sound words to live by especially battling addiction and trying to find a reason to love yourself.

I don’t think I created this one either.

There is always a change. You just have to wait for it.

Finding the beauty within

Beauty is in more than just a rose

You will never get better if you can’t move past your past
