This is Day 195 of the COVID-19 quarantine/social distancing here in Toronto, Canada.
I love inspirational quotes! And there are so many from famous people and leaders that have stayed with me over the years. These statements can become powerful affirmations and reminders to help me stay resilient and positive when life appears hopeless.
Here are two examples of quotes I love:
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
“Be the change you want to see in the world.”
Movies are also a treasure trove of inspirational quotes spoken by characters we get to know and root for. When I hear something that touches my heart and mind I always feel a surge of feel-good energy flow through me! One of my favourites as a teen was from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back…
“Do or do not. There is no try.”
And then as an adult in midlife and dealing with undiagnosed depression a quote from the film Rocky Balboa gave me the strength to persevere…
“Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t how hard you can hit. It’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward! That’s how winning is done!”
Watching movies is one of my favourite methods for rejuvenating my inner strengths and there is one film on Netflix that I found overflowing with inspirational quotes and life lessons!
Enola Holmes (2020)
The mystery, adventure film, Enola Holmes, is about sixteen year old Enola (Millie Bobby Brown), the sister of Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill), searching for her missing mother (Helena Bonham Carter) while helping a runaway lord, Tewkesbury (Louis Partridge). This highly entertaining and inspirational movie features many engaging performances, exciting action sequences and the beautiful scenery of 19th century, London, England.

The character of Enola was fun to watch as she uses her sleuthing skill sets to solve puzzles her mother left for her and even to outsmart her big brother Sherlock! And seeing use her combat skills against larger opponents was thrilling. All of these abilities are thanks to Enola’s mother who trained her since she was a child to become more empowered than others around her. She also provides Enola many inspiring quotes that can apply to anyone such as…
“There are two paths you can take. Yours, or the path others choose for you.”
“You have to make some noise if you want to be heard.”
“There’ll come a time when you have to make a hard choice. And, in that moment, you will discover what mettle you truly have, and what you’re prepared to risk, for what matters.”
“Our future is up to us.”
