6 Quotes That Will Help You Stay Positive Through Your Adoption Journey

Sometimes you need a little positivity in your life for those difficult times.

Meghan Rivard October 27, 2016

I have said it many times: adoption is like a roller coaster with many ups and downs. You will have positive “feel good” days and days that are not so positive, maybe even negative. Following are some quotes to help you stay “upbeat” through your adoption journey.

“I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday.”
1. “I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday.”

No matter how small, find one positive accomplishment each day.

“Think positive because thoughts are like the steering wheel that moves our life in the right direction.”
2. “Think positive because thoughts are like the steering wheel that moves our life in the right direction.”

Your attitude determines how you react to events of the day. Being positive will help keep you focused in the right direction and not be overwhelmed by setbacks.

“You cannot stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
3. “You cannot stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”

You cannot prevent negative events from occurring in your life, but you can learn how to deal with them. As stated above, your attitude is a critical factor.

“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”
4. “Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”

At the end of each day, journal about something that was good, no matter how small.

“Enjoy the little things in life… for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.”
5. “Enjoy the little things in life… for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.”

Life goes very quickly; focus on the positive and not the negative; recognize the little good things.

“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens.”
6. “You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens.”

No one can see the future, so despite the long term plan, sometimes you just have to take one day at a time.
