I’m all for following a trend and I love the idea of putting a smile on the face of a stranger. Brightening someone’s day in such a random way is such a great way to be an inspiration to the world. Making painted rocks is also a great DIY activity to do with children. Finding the best painted rocks and quotes to make your own quotes ahead of time will help when you pick up a paint brush and go on the hunt for some great painted rocks.
Use your artistic abilities to create some beautiful painted rocks. These quotes will get you started. Stock up on some clear sealer to protect the paint, brushes, rocks, and some acrylic paint and you’ll be all set!
Making your own DIY painted rocks is easier when you have the best painted rock quotes to inspire others in the world.
Early this year a new trend started popping up all over the country. That trend was painting rocks. These rocks come with everything from full-on scenes to single colors. The painter finds the rock, paints it, and then places it somewhere obvious for a stranger to find.
The intention is for that person to find it and either smile and pass it on or take it and use it as a source of inspiration in their daily life. For me, the most inspiration I can get will come from words.
Words inspire me to do many things and maybe if I found some painted rocks quotes I would be inspired to get out there and spread some words too.
“Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.”
The goal of the painted rock is to put a smile on another’s face. So why not be direct with your quotes and tell them to put a smile on their face right now?
“Find what brings you joy and go there.”
Sometimes we need a reminder to just settle down and go to our happy place. It seems dumb now but that’s because you’re probably happy right now.
“If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.”
Change is often one of the scariest parts of life that we go through and there’s no telling when it may come.
Imagine if you were going through a big change and you’re stressed. You decide to go for a walk and take a sit on a park bench. You look over and find one of those painted rocks quotes reminds you that change is ok. Mind blown huh?
“Don’t stress. Do your best. Forget the rest.”
There’s no point in stressing out over things that just don’t go your way. Especially if you’ve given it your all.
“Be a little boulder.”
I found this one to be funny because of the use of the word “boulder.”
“The sun shines not on us but in us.”
There are times when it seems like the clouds both literally and figuratively just won’t go away. We need to remember that we are in control of our lives and the sun will shine when we’re ready.
“In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with.”
Many of us love to travel and sometimes we enjoy solo travel. However, I could travel somewhere and remember it more so for who I was there with rather than the place itself.
“You are enough.”
“Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.”
A different take on the old saying of if you love what you do you never work a day in your life. Both would work interchangeably here but this one is just nice because it tackles both sides, like and love.
“There’s still time to change the road you’re on.”
Earlier we talked about how change is scary but that change is necessary. Sometimes, you WANT change in your life and it’s never too late to make that change.
