These reminders will hit you right in the feels.

Especially after the year and a half we’ve had, we could all use a little more kindness, love, and positivity in our lives. And that’s exactly the goal of ‘Seconds Apart‘ — a lovely initiative that scribbles wholesome quotes on walls, storefronts, signs, and buses across London, which are then shared on Instagram.

I don’t know about you, but these get me every. single. time. I could be in a bad mood and these little reminders instantly make me smile (or tear up, depending on the mood. Okay fine, they almost always make me tear up. But in a good way.). They also restore my faith in humanity because they prove that there are beautiful souls out there who simply want to make people’s lives better, for nothing in return. Bless you, whoever you are!

Here are some of our favourite quotes about everything from life to love and self-care. May they make your day just a little bit brighter:

On dark places:

On sharing feelings:

On a future filled with love:

On heartbreak:

On the here and now:

On struggles:

On kindness:

On having an impact:

And finally, on doing what you love:
