Favorite Ways To Use Quotes Every Day

In addition to inspiring you to enjoy the first day of summer, these quotes can certainly be used to make the most of other days.

One of my favorite ways to use quotes is for journaling. Quotes often prompt memories or motivate us to set goals for our life and our actions. Write about all of those things! 

From that beginning, you may end up doing even more creative things… like writing stories, painting, etc. Let that creativity flow, which may happen even more easily during the summer when we have more daylight and our mood is often more relaxed.

If doing all the creative things isn’t quite your nature, you can still write quotes in your planner as inspiration and focus for your day or week.

Share a happy first day of summer quote with friends and family members. You don’t even have to wait until the first day of summer. Start sharing on social media a couple of weeks beforehand and get everyone in on the fun.

Show your love for summer with decor like a summer quote sign or a fun t-shirt for the first day of summer. Okay, maybe a couple of shirts, because this v-neck t-shirt also looks perfect for summer.
