There are certain bits of wisdom that I often have to stop and remind myself of. Sometimes it’s easy to get worked up or brought down by the everyday annoyances in life, and usually one negative event or feeling can set the tone for my entire week. Which is why I have a tattoo of the phrase “all is well” in Russian, to serve as a reminder that my life really is good, and that deserves constant acknowledgement.
While my little Russian motto is a good one to contemplate daily, there are plenty other words of wisdom that I often overlook. Here are 17 reminders (or statements) about life that will make you think, cause inspiration or just give you a chuckle. (This may be NSFW due to language!)
Artist Alex Noriega is the creator of the blog Stuff No One Told Me, where you can find even more gems of advice. We all know that life can be hard to navigate at times, and lots of the old adages are somewhat twee and unhelpful. Which is why Noriega’s site is so refreshing, because it provides inspiring-yet-useful one-liners to remind yourself of throughout the day.
