Fixing Dumb Inspirational Quotes
Inspirational quotes are like pop music. Sometimes I discover a song that’s mind-blowing and I can’t get over not having found it sooner, but most are shallow and I can’t believe anyone relates. To me, most inspirational quotes are more ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ than ‘Shake It Off’.
Therefore, I decided to have another look at some of the inspirational quotes that make me cringe and edit them with my sense of realism. Uninspirational is the new inspirational, I guess. Please let me know if you liked this kind of post and I might do it more often!
I did this a couple of times more:

the hope one is my fav 😀 😀 😀
You know I use to be one of those girls that would go on Pinterest to find motivational quotes. The older I get I realize how cheesy these are. Made me laugh.
Haha yeah similar for me. I do find validity in some of them but cheesy describes my feeling towards the rest pretty damn well^^

I despise inspirational everything! Here is my rant about my feelings regarding what I like to call the \”inspiration conspiracy.\” Hope you feel uninspired:
\”You inspire me.\” Next time these words are poised to roll off your tongue, I urge you to bite it. I\’ve bloomed from child to teen and teen to adult …
I do hate most inspirational quotes as well, but I feel like there are some exceptions, e.g. \’Today is life, tomorrow neves comes\’ totally blew my mind when I read it. It\’s very true in a way I haven\’t considered before. What I hate is the nonsense quotes other people seem to think are deep and inspiring.
However, people actually can inspire me in a way that I wanna do something because of another person. I don\’t think the whole world is uninspiring per se but I get your perspective and appreciate it too 🙂
\”Stars\” is DEFINITELY my favorite. Each are pretty clever, but that one made me chuckle aloud. 🙂
I\’m glad you got a laugh out of it – had to do some Wikipedia work for that one! 😀
These cracked me up! Totally wasn\’t what I was expecting!
Thanks for the reply. This post still makes me so happy because it seems to make people laugh. Nothing more I could expect out of it <3
‘be the girl that decided to go home\’ hehe If I had that inspirational quote when I was in uni it would have saved me a shit ton of money.
Yeah but it probably wouldn\’t have been as good of a time then 😉
Haha.. I love the one on tyre blow-outs. Your take on these quotes is really cool. Sharing the link with some friends too. 🙂 Cheers!!
Wow, thanks for your lovely feedback and for sharing! Best way to get the word out. I had fun making these and I\’m so happy people respond positively to it <3
These make me laugh. I hate overused quotes too because people use them in an Instagram caption it will instantly become #basic lol
I find these quotes so funny, source of good smile instead of trainwrecks, i guess. More of these please!
Thanks! If my trainwreck live makes other laugh, that\’s the best I can make out of it 😉
I\’ll make another post like this in the future!
Oh my God, I just might\’ve found the most amazing and let\’s be honest practical post! You should definitely make a series out of ideas like these! I loved all, but my favourite has to be the last one and the sleep one!! 😀
Wow, thank you for your lovely feedback! Feel free to use them in any way that seems practical 😉
reading through your posts had me rolling laughing! I nominated you for the 2018 Liebster Award. Can\’t wait to hear more from you!
Thank you, I love that you got a laugh out of it! I feel honored, I guess, but I don\’t really know what that means (the Liebster)
Those are funny! I choose sleep, too! Especially after two weeks of vacation when I can\’t seem to get myself back onto a regular sleep schedule! Thanks for the laugh.
Good to know I\’m not the only one having trouble getting to a regular sleep schedule again. My body wants to hibernate! Thanks for the lovely feedback 🙂

ahahaha this is such a fun post! i would have never though of it! true that we always see the same quotes around. But at the same time, they don\’t do harm
You knocked it out of the park with this one.
The fact that you could make them switch from original to yours is pure magic to me. However, I found that the longer ones took me more than 1 try to read. Maybe just do two side by side? Original vs. yours?
I hope you had fun with this.
And yes, inspirational quotes annoy me greatly. Yes, there is an interesting one here and there, but the rest just makes me want to vomit.
Yeah, I had tons of fun with it and I\’m considering making this a series whenever I have time. It\’s a little work but it\’s fun as well.
I wanted to make them GIFs so people could copy and use them if they want to. Maybe I should make the long ones stay in one place for longer though.
Lmao!!! I love the realism. While inspirations are okay for some people I find it annoying and unrealistic. Where is the reality? You should definitely do more. The last one had me rolling on the floor.
I\’m ecstatic I made people laugh with this. Wasn\’t sure anyone was gonna get my kind of twisted humor. I\’ll do more in the future!
I love these GIF quotes! I think it\’s really funny. I know sometimes it can be dumb yet very helpful in life. I hope to see more soon!
True! There\’s one that actually blew my mind. It\’s an old Greek saying: \’Today is life, tomorrow never comes\’. So if a quote means something to someone, I get that. I just thought these were super-corny haha
Haha today AND EVERY DAY I choose sleep.
Let\’s not forget \’Live. Laugh. Love.\’ and \’Dance like nobody\’s watching. Love like you\’ve never been hurt.\’ and \’It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile\’ and \’Dream as if you\’ll live forever. Live as if you\’ll die today.\’ and \’Y.O.L.O.\’
God there are so many and they\’re all terrible.
Yes! I love that I was able to make you smile it seems <3
And you seem to share my kind of humor & opinion on inspirational quotes. Damn, you posted some 'good' ones. Might have to include them in a follow-up!

Omg! so funny, you put a smile on my face. I definitely going for the Today I choose sleep!
Thank you for your response! I love that this post made you and others laugh, what more can I want from it? I\’ll choose sleep every day – sleep is joy, duh!
These are so funny! Definitely can relate to some of your edits.

I love the one about shining stars among the darkest skies. It\’s so true. No matter how dark things have been, you can always shine your light.
Yeah, I guess there\’s some truth to it. I find it a little corny but everyone\’s got their own opinion. Thanks for the feedback!
Hahaha. Some of these may very well be how they were written before someone cleaned them up. I was born because my parents were horny!
I think we all were 😉 And thanks for the feedback!
OK these are amazing! I absolutely love haha and yeah they are so true once changed.
Thanks! I\’m so glad it seems I could make you smile <3
This is so right down my alley. I found this to be entirely too entertaining! Do it again soon!
Thank you very much! I will do it again as the response to the post has just been wonderful!!

I choose sleep!! Lol. That\’s a good one. I really like your switch ups! Great choices!
Thank you so much! Glad I could make you laugh xoxo
Hope- Hell Opens partially every day- LOL. I have to say that made me laugh the most although \’be the girl that decided to go home\’ was pretty funny as well!
Thank you so much. I\’m filled with joy hearing that I made others laugh <3
I love inspirational quotes. I mean, most of them are pretty generic, but they\’re still awesome.
Amazing, well done lmao
Lmao! I hate inspirational quotes… I find them so patronising and generic… at a push I can get on board with “don’t make me adult today” or “may your Monday be short and your coffee be strong” 😂
Haha same! I can get on board with these too though
Keep them coming!!
This is a great way to look at quotes when your life decides to play around with your visions or what you want, sometimes you have to alter some of them to at least feel a bit better.
Yeah, you\’re right. This might be my way of dealing with in-your-face-optimism when I don\’t want that. Thanks for the feedback 🙂
I just love these. How funny! I like the one that says today I choose sleep. I would so go for that.
Thank you so much! Yep, sleep equals joy anyway^^
