How to Use Beautiful February Quotes in Everyday Life

Although for many of us February is a cold and harsh month, there are still ways to find enjoyment, continue to grown as a person, and live intentionally.

Reflecting on inspirational and motivational quotes is one of my favorite things to do every day. And for some reason, it seems even more important to take in that positivity when it feels like we’re almost at the end of winter, but not quite there yet.

However, reading the words is only part of the process. What you do in response to those words is actually even more important.

Don’t just think of these fabulous February quotes as ‘pretty words.’ Don’t allow yourself to simply say, ‘Oh, I love that!’ when you discover an amazing-to-you quote — and then promptly forget about what you’ve read.

Of course we love the words. We wouldn’t read quotes if well-crafted thoughts didn’t intrigue us. After you read these quotes, try some of these ideas to put them to use in your life:

  • Find a powerful quote that you can use to inspire positive action every single day.
  • Memorize it and repeat it out loud to yourself in the mirror every day.
  • Print out great quotes and display them as artwork. These printable gratitude quotes are a perfect start.
  • Doodle your favorite quotes in your planner.
  • Journal about what a new inspirational quote means to you and what it’s prompting you to do. An inexpensive journaling notebook or refillable journal is perfect for writing about your inspiration, thoughts, and plans.
  • Share the quote and your reaction on your favorite social media platform.
  • Then, share the subsequent positive actions the quote motivated you to take. 

A new favorite quote may inspire your thoughts and actions for the rest of your life, or you may only ‘need’ it for a day… or a week… or a season of life. It’s all good!

For February, I want to challenge you to practice more kindness, more love, more understanding toward others AND toward yourself. Spread some extra warmth and light during this final month of winter.

  1. Oh, probably 20 years ago when I was an occupational therapist in a VA psych clinic (craft oriented), we had a clue basket. We collected quotes from our vets, our datebooks, fortune cookies, wherever we found them, typed them out and added them to a wooden basket. Then we offered them to the “clueless” which was a popular phrase back then. It was such great fun! Many were recovery-oriented as we dealt with a lot of substance abuse as well as all kinds of psychiatric diagnoses. And it was amazing how often, some vets got just the quote they needed!
