Every day is a new beginning. A new chance to get things right, follow your dreams, and rewrite your story. If you need some inspiration to get your day off on the right foot, keep reading for some of my favorite good morning quotes.
Good Morning Quotes to Start Your Day Off Right
I love mornings. I know, I’m crazy, right? Honestly, I never thought I’d say that. I was a total night owl when I was younger, and mornings were something to “make it through” or “deal with.” I’m not exactly sure when things changed and I became a morning person. At some point, though, I realized that each sunrise is truly a gift. Something to be grateful for, not to curse at or tolerate.
If you need a little help changing your outlook on daybreak, these good morning quotes really put things into perspective for me. Sure, a bunch of words won’t change you from a night owl to an early bird, but they should at least inspire you to greet the dawn with a better attitude. Enjoy!
1. Let this morning be a new beginning
Every single day is a chance to make a fresh start. That’s definitely something to be thankful for, don’t you agree?
2. Just one small positive thought is all it takes
Never underestimate the power of positivity! If you find it hard to jump out of bed each day with a smile on your face and positive energy flowing through your veins, try this: think just ONE good thought.
3. Every morning gives you two choices…
This is one of my favorite motivational good morning quotes. Every day, I choose to chase my dreams! I hope that you decide to do the same.
4. There’s something good in everyday
Life isn’t perfect. Sometimes, it feels like nothing is going right and you dread just getting out of bed in the morning. But I agree with Alice, even if every day isn’t good, there is something good in every single day. It could be something as small as a smile from a stranger or a really good parking spot. You just have to look for it, and I promise you will find it.
5. If it’s raining, create your own sunshine
If you can’t find something good in each day, create it yourself!
6. Sunrise and hope can defeat all problems
Just like every sunrise defeats a long, rough night, hope helps us defeat life’s problems. We just need to hold onto it.
7. Morning always comes…
Morning is coming whether you like it or not, so you might as well learn to enjoy it! Right?
8. You have two gifts to open every morning.
There’s so much meaning in this one! First, we should be so thankful that we get to open two amazing gifts each morning. Second, it’s really a reminder of the importance of “opening” your eyes metaphorically speaking. Each day is a new chance to really see the world around us and ask what we can do to make it better.
9. Do this every morning!
One little smile in the mirror can completely change the way you see yourself all day long.
10. Decide that today will be the best day
When you wake up tomorrow, decide that it’s going to be the best day of the year. Then do it again the day after, and the next day, and the next. Decide that EVERY day is going to be the best.
11. Make “kindness” one of your daily goals
Kindness should be every day’s goal, although sometimes you really do need that second cup of coffee to make it achievable. 🙂
12. Give your smile to the people you love
There are a lot of good morning quotes that tell you to smile at strangers, even if you’re feeling grouchy. But I kind of like Maya Angelou’s better. If you only have one smile in you, it should go to the people you love. That doesn’t mean you should grump at strangers or anything, of course. No one deserves to have someone’s bad mood taken out on them.
13. Get up and get going!
This one is a reminder that if your name isn’t in the obits, you’re still alive. And since you’re still alive, you might as well get out of bed and make the best of this day.
14. Share your happiness!
This one isn’t specifically about morning but it’s still a great quote to start your day off right. If you have even the smallest bit of happiness, share it with others. Spread it around and watch it grow.
15. Learn by listening
A good mantra for each day: Today I will listen more than I speak. It truly is one of the best ways to keep growing and learning.
16. Decide what kind of day you want to have
If the type of morning determines what kind of day you will have, then do everything possible to make each one a good one!
17. You ARE Enough!
I think this may be one of the most important good morning quotes, and definitely something we all need to remember. YOU ARE ENOUGH.
18. Make a new ending
Unless we figure out this whole time travel thing, you can never go back to the beginning and start over. But you can start new each day.
19. Write an amazing story today!
Only you can write your story. Make it a great one!
20. My good morning wish for you…
Last, but so far from least, this is my wish for you: May today and each new day that follows bring you incredible joy and happiness!
I hope you loved these good morning quotes as much as I do! If you’re a night owl, I hope that they gave you a little motivation to look at sunrise in a whole new light (pun intended). Have a wonderful day!
