Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.

The decision to be positive is not one that disregards or belittles sadness that exists. It is rather a conscious choice to focus on the good and to cultivate happiness – genuine happiness. Happiness is not a limited resource.

“Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough.” -Daniell Koepke

“Maybe the thing you’re most scared of is exactly what you should do.”

“I’ve been a paperboy, a stripper, a paralegal and barista. At one point I even worked a graveyard shift at a gas station inside a bullet-proof booth, and I’ve made sandwiches at Subway for minimum wage. I’ve managed executive offices from art galleries to software development companies, and prepared burritos at Whole Foods and rotisserie chickens at Costco. I was a photographer for 13 years, a bus-boy at The Cheesecake Factory for three minutes (shortest job I’ve ever had), and spent countless hours in numerous kitchens feeding the hungry. I drafted multi-billion dollar contracts at prestigious law firms for ten years, and made smoothies at Jamba Juice for two. From publishing a book, to cleaning bathrooms or mopping floors, NONE of the things I have done DEFINE me. Does that make sense? Do you see what I mean? What and who I am has absolutely nothing to do with what I have done when I was younger, nor what I’m currently doing. Who I am is not defined by how much or how little money I have, the clothes I wear, or the vehicle I drive wherever I live. I don’t identify myself by those things, which is good because they’re all so temporary.. lol… those aren’t even all the jobs I’ve had (and I’m only 36).. It’s important to have an identity that surpasses a job title on a business card, or a status deemed by the bank or society. What I am, regardless of those things, is an instrument of peace. That is my mission, my purpose.. my Ikigai! If we bring integrity to whatever we do in the world, then we are being of service to others whether we wash dishes in the back of a restaurant, perform complex brain surgeries, manage thousands of employees, drive a bus, fight fires, or raise children at home. Life is not a hierarchy, it’s a celebration! And love is not a word, it’s an invitation. So strive to love who you are. No. Matter. What.” -Timber Hawkeye

Whatever life throws at you even if it hurts you, just be strong and fight through it. Remember, strong walls shake but never collapse.

“Let whatever you do today be enough. Let go of the judgement you have about what you should be or could be doing, and today, allow yourself to simply be. Comparing yourself and your journey may be habitual, but it gets you nowhere. It makes you feel worse and it keeps you stuck. So stop fixating on where everyone else is, and start giving yourself permission to be exactly where you are. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and trust that in this moment, who you are, where you are at, and what you are doing is enough. You will get to where you need to be in your own time. Until then, breathe. Breathe and be patient with yourself and your process. You are doing the best you can to cope and survive amid your struggles, and that’s all you can ask of yourself. It’s enough. You are enough.” -Daniell Koepke

Listen to the right people and ignore the wrong ones. People that doubt you, hate you and judge you are never worth your time or attention.

“Whenever you feel like giving up, think of all the people that would love to see you fail.”

“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64 color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8 color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation. So when I meet someone who’s an 8 color type…I’m like, hey girl, Magenta! and she’s like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no I want Magenta!” -John Mayer

“We will find out what we need to do when we quit lying to ourselves and see the situation for what it is.”

A relationship will only go as far as you both want it to.

Sometimes you just need to put the past away and move on with your life.

“Who the fuck cares where you went to school or where you work? The question is: Is everyday experience good, healthy, beautiful? Because I have to tell you, while it might be cool to work for a company like Google, Apple, or The New Yorker, if your job is stupid, stressful and your boss is an asshole, there is nothing good or prestigious about that. While it might seem right to go to a school like Berkeley, if classes are overcrowded and students are nervous, anxious, religious zealots from Orange County, are you sure you want to go there? What’s good about that? To believe in prestige is to privilege abstract, collective impression over palpable, daily experience. To which I say: fuck prestige. Do what serves your everyday vitality.” -Daniel Coffeen
“And kid, you’ve got to love yourself. You’ve got wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn. You’ve got to sit next to the man at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation. You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower. Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought for four dollars at the local grocery store. You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally. You are not the moon kissing the black sky. You’ve got to compliment someones crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July. You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years. Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday. You’ve got to stop worrying about what you’re going to tell her when she finds out. You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago. You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions. Fuck it. Love yourself, kiddo. You’ve got to love yourself.”
“Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it – that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing – an actor, a writer – I am a person who does things – I write, I act – and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.” -Stephen Fry

“I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.” -Helena Bonham Carter

“You will fall many times in life, but you will pick yourself up and become stronger and wiser for each trouble you pass.” -Leon Brown

“We’re taught to believe that some people are simply born lucky, when in reality, that’s just a convenient excuse to lean back and take it easy, rather than try to apply some control over our destiny. After all, if you aren’t one of the “chosen” ones, what can you possibly do about it? Quite a lot, actually. The fact is, more and more psychologists are finding out that it isn’t the hand you’re dealt that’s important in life but how you play your cards. Let me put it in another way: We’re all capable of making our own luck. What appears to be luck is really the result of perceptions, personality traits, choices and actions. All of that is within your control. People who consider themselves lucky actually tend to be – it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. That’s because positive thinkers are always keeping their eyes peeled for fortunate situations and they’re more likely to grab on them when they arise. So instead of telling yourself: “There’s not a chance in hell that’s going to happen”. Tell yourself: “That looks kind of cool, maybe I should check it out.” -Amanda Oosthuizen

Take small steps every day and you’ll eventually get there.

Do your best to avoid stress and try to enjoy life. Quit thinking so much. Why complicate life?

“No matter how much it hurts right now. one day you’ll look back and realize it changed your life for the better.”

“When life knocks you down, it’s testing you to see whether you have the strength or not to stand back up. Don’t give up!”

“Date yourself. Take yourself out to eat. Don’t share your popcorn at the movies with anyone. Stroll around an art museum alone. Fall in love with canvases. Fall in love with yourself.”

“When you get knocked down, don’t stay down; get back up again. Nothing good is going to happen as long as you’re down on yourself.” -Joel Osteen

“To keep a relationship, you must keep your business to yourself and your partner. The whole world doesn’t need to know your problems.”

“There is no designated time for anything in your life. You don’t have to have your first kiss at any certain time, you don’t have to get married in your 20′s and you don’t have to do anything just because other people think it’s best. In fact, you will be much better off if you just do what your heart says. The day you stop caring what other people think is the day their opinions don’t mean anything, because you’re not there to give them weight.” -Brianna West

“Never stop trying. Never stop believing. Never give up. Your day will come.” -Mandy Hale

“One of the best things in life is realizing you’re perfectly happy without the things you thought you needed the most.”

“Don’t waste your time on people who see you as you were instead of as you are. If they can’t let go of the past, let go of them.”

“No matter how many mistakes you’ve made in the past, or what sort of difficulties you struggle with now, you are destined to live in victory.” -Joel Osteen

“Someone will always be prettier. Someone will always be smarter. Someone will always be younger. But they will never be you.” -Tanni Sattar

“Learn to appreciate what you have, before time forces you to appreciate what you had.”

“Most people don’t cheat because they’re cheaters. They cheat because they are people. They are driven by hunger or for the experience of someone being hungry once more for them. They find themselves in friendships that take an unintended turn or they seek them out because they’re horny or drunk or damaged from the stuff they didn’t get when they were kids. There is love. There is lust. There is opportunity. There is alcohol. And youth. There is loneliness and boredom and sorrow and weakness and self-destruction and idiocy and arrogance and romance and ego and nostalgia and power and need. There is the compelling temptation of intimacies with someone other than the person with whom one is most intimate. Which is a complicated way of saying, it’s a damn long life. And people get mucked up in it from time to time. Even the people we marry. Even us.”
—Cheryl Strayed, tiny beautiful things

“You know what’s really, powerfully sexy? A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. … Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent-looking lady. … A storyteller. A genius. A doctor. A new mother. A woman who realizes how beautiful she is.” -Courtney E. Martin

“Always be thankful! Life could be worse.”

“I’m glad to be here right now, poking at my threshold. I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can. Maybe that spot is called I will.” -Kristin Armstrong

“Whatever you may be missing right now – a person, a place, a feeling, maybe you are injured and missing running – whatever it is, have peace and take heart – remember that any goodbye makes room for a hello.” -Kristin Armstrong

“Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don’t be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally know who you are.” -Kristin Armstrong

“I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.” -Kristin Armstrong

“You get depressed because you know that you’re not what you should be.” -Marilyn Manson

“A lot of us spend our time stuck in regret, wishing our lives had turned out differently, and beating ourselves up for the decisions that have led us to this place. We feel cheated out of a life that could have been something better. We feel angry and sad and disappointed. And most of all, we feel stuck.

In these moments, it’s easy to focus on all of the things that have gone wrong. It’s easy to focus on the loss and the heartbreak and the pain, but it’s also important to remember all of the things that have gone right. It’s important to remember all of the positive experiences and friendships and growth and laughter you’ve gained — things you would have never taken part in, lessons you would have never learned, and people you would have never met had you not veered off the desired path.

The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others. -William Lyon Phelps

The truth is that every time you thought you were missing out on something important, you were given the opportunity to experience something valuable in its own right. Every time life’s obstacles rejected you from something good, you were being redirected to something, or someone, equally wonderful. You may not have ended up where you intended to go, but trust, for once, that you have ended up where you need to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that every experience has something to offer you. Trust that something that feels like a curse in the moment can blossom into a blessing. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough.” -DK

“Sometimes we don’t need advice, we just need someone to listen.”

“How you respond to failure will either make you or break you.”

“Know your worth. Know when you have had enough. And move on from the people who keep ruining your happiness.”

“Have the courage to make the change, the strength to see you through it, and faith that everything will turn out for the best.”

“If you’ve never lost your mind, then you’ve never followed your heart.”

“My past is my past. It made me who I am. I have no regrets, and wouldn’t change a thing. I just don’t live there anymore.”

“Remember that every path walked is walked for a reason, and every day is full of blessings no matter how BIG or small.”

“Bitterness is a result of clinging to negative experiences. It serves you no good, and closes the door to your future.” -Leon Brown

“Do not judge others by your own standards, for everyone is making their way home, in the way they know best.” -Leon Brown

“I may not always have the best things in life, but I ALWAYS have the blessed things in life.”

“Some people don’t understand how blessed they truly are. Be thankful for what you have rather than focusing on what you don’t have.”

“Take the time to see and appreciate what you have.”

Sometimes we stare so long at the wrong things, we miss out on the RIGHT thing standing right in front of us. -Mandy Hale

Drop jealousy and envy, for they make you ugly. Be loving, be accepting, and most of all… be happy just the way you are. -Leon Brown

“You are never too busy to take time out of your day for those who matter most. You can always make time.”

“The moment you feel like you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment to absolutely and utterly walk away.”

“A good relationship is worth the wait.”

“Be thankful for everybody in your life, good and bad, past and present. They all made you the person that you are today.”

My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute. I gave her a lot of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she can LOVE that much. And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man. If you love her to the point of madness, she will become it. -Brad Pitt about his wife

The past is the past. Don’t let it hold you back. Move forward and don’t look back.

We all have this perfect picture in our minds of how things are supposed to be and that’s why we all end up being disappointed.

“Live life without any limits, because you’ll never know when your time comes. So live, laugh and most importantly be happy.”

One small positive thought can change your whole day.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same. -Flavia Weedn

Live your life and ignore the negativity. Don’t let anyone steal your happiness.

I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday.

Value not the things you have in life, but rather who you have in life.

Just because one thing doesn’t go right doesn’t mean your life is ruined, Stay Positive!

Sometimes we must accept that God has a better plan.

Be thankful for what you have and work hard for what you don’t have.

Slow down and enjoy the journey right now. Take time for the people in your life. They won’t always be there. -Joel Osteen

“It is terrifying to think that one day you will trust somebody enough to let them see you naked. You will undress and remind them that you’ve stretch marks and birth marks and scars from having chicken pox when you were little and scars from all of the other things now. You will blush thousands of shades of red, painting yourself as a rose losing its petals. And that person – that person will take it all in. And I wonder if they will reassure you. But mostly, I wonder if they will even see anything worth reassuring you about. I hope they see each freckle on your back as if it’s a star and you are the whole universe to them.” -K.P.K

“There is nothing wrong with having a bad day, nothing at all. There is nothing wrong with putting your jammies on and staying in. The world will wait, the world will not combust because you can’t force a smile.” —Sharon Rooney

If you have to beg someone to be in your life, they don’t belong there. -Mandy Hale

Whatever you’re facing today, keep going. Keep moving. Keep hoping. Keep pressing on. There is victory on the other side! -Mandy Hale

Hope is wishing something would happen. Faith is believing something will happen. Courage is making something happen.

Friendship means understanding, not agreement. It means forgiveness, not forgetting. It means the memories last, even if contact is lost.

All things pass and pain is temporary. It comes to teach a lesson and when the lesson is understood it disappears into the night. -Leon Brown

Sometimes you have no choice but to just move on.

Inhale the best, exhale the stress.

Keep calm and Stay positive. Good things will happen.

Chase dreams, not people.

Your past mistakes are meant to guide you, not define you.

Do not worry about the past or the future. This moment needs your attention, for this is where your life exists. -Leon Brown

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet that person, we will be grateful.

If you want to attract happy, positive things…become a happy, positive person! Work from the inside out! -Mandy Hale

Nothing goes to waste on the journey of life. Both good and bad experiences shape your mind and heart for what is to come. -Leon Brown

Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it.

The best thing to do is be patient with faith.

If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it.

Keep it simple. Keep it honest. Keep it real.

Life is short. Don’t waste it being sad. Be who you are, be happy, be free, be whatever you want to be.

When you let go, something magical happens. You give God room to work. -Mandy Hale

Life is short. Focus on what matters and let go of what doesn’t.

Don’t let little stupid things break your happiness.

Keep going, you are getting there.

“You see, you closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too—even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling.” -Mitch Albom

Instead of focusing on all the bad, be thankful for all the good. Each day you have is a blessing from God. Enjoy life.

“No matter what has happened, something good is always around the corner and the sun will always shine again.”

Life is all about finding people who are your kind of crazy.

“Any act of kindness is never wasted. God knows your heart and sees it all. Some people may not accept your kindness, but give it anyway.”

Pay attention to the ones who care before trying to get the attention of the ones who don’t.

“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.” -Truman Capote

“When you are going through difficulty and wonder where GOD is, remember that the teacher is always quiet during the test.”

“You may not know what is going to happen when you try, but if you do not try nothing will happen.”

“Don’t let people make you feel bad or guilty for living your life. It is your life. Live it the way you want.”

Life is too short to spend with someone who makes your days difficult.

I am not lucky, I am blessed.

“Forget the past. Remember the lesson.” -Mandy Hale

“Happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time, it’s about loving what you have.”

One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now. -Paulo Coelho

Relationships aren’t always going to last forever. Some will and some won’t, but don’t hang on to something you shouldn’t.

It’s better to be single with high standards than in a relationship settling for less.

Take time to be thankful for everything that you have. You can always have more, but you could also have less.

“God can’t hand you something new until you are willing to let go of the things that are not good for you.”

“Sometimes, people never get what they deserve because they’re too busy holding on to things they’re supposed to let go of.”

“What you want and what you need aren’t always the same. Be willing to delay short-term gratification for long-term greatness.” -Mandy Hale

There is something inexpressibly beautiful about the world when the sun begins to rise and fill the dim sky with soft rays of light and only the birds are awake to sing to you “good morning”, while everyone else is curled up in their beds, unaware of the magnificence they’re missing and everything feels so simple. It’s as if six a.m. is an epiphany that sparks at your fingertips and spreads until you are encompassed entirely by a feeling of clarity. There is something inexpressibly beautiful about being awake to behold the splendor of this world while everyone else is still asleep. -Madisen Kuhn

“Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.” -Daniell Koepke

“Understand that people change and sometimes they’re no longer compatible with our lives. We just have to learn to accept it and move on.”

“What hurts you today makes you stronger tomorrow.”

“You should never have to convince someone into loving you and wanting to be with you. You deserve to see someone who can easily see what’s special in you.” -Karen Salmansohn

“I think she was afraid to love sometimes. I think it scared her. She was the type to like things that are concrete, like the ocean. Something you could point to and know what it was… And I think that’s why she struggled with love. She couldn’t touch it. She couldn’t hold on to it and make sure it never changed.” -Carrie Ryan

“Be a warrior not a worrier.”

“Pretending to be happy when you’re in pain is just an example of how strong you are as a person.”

“Embrace your challenges with an open heart, because through every challenge strength forms.”

“It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”

“Don’t compare yourself to others, you are you. No one could come close to being you even if they tried.”

“Be patient. A relationship before its time would only distract you from fulfilling your big and beautiful destiny.” -Mandy Hale

“The people with the best advice are usually the ones who have been through the most.”

“As time goes on, you’ll understand. What lasts, lasts; what doesn’t, doesn’t. Time solves most things. And what time can’t solve, you’ll learn to solve yourself.” -Haruki Murakami

“Beauty is about living your life and being happy with yourself inside and out and not worrying about what people think of you.”

“Your flaws are beautiful. They’re what make you stand out. Don’t try to be normal, perfect, striving to be something or someone that you will never accomplish. Be annoying, be quirky, be different. In truth, it takes a hell of a lot more strength to resist, than to go along with the flow. Stray from the path. What anyone else thinks doesn’t matter. Let them be boring, let them be the same, as unnoticeable as the people around them. Wear flowers in your hair, mismatching socks, and thousands of multi-colored bracelets. Press all those damn buttons in the elevator, and piss off everyone around you. Have fun now, because there’s always plenty of time to be boring in the future.”

“Stop worrying about what you have to lose and start focusing on what you have to gain.”

“Never be afraid to try something new, because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know.”

“If you have your health, if you have people in your life to love, you are blessed. Slow down and enjoy the simple things in life.” -Joel Osteen

“Moving on doesn’t mean you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what happened and continue living.”

“You must learn to be patient. Patient with yourself and the people in this world. You must learn to slow down. To take some time to breathe, to notice, to appreciate what you have. Just trust that in the moment you really need an answer it will come to you clearly. You will know what you need to do, to say, to give. Believe in yourself, in the life you are leading. Trust that you can and will figure this all out. Give yourself the time and space to do that.”

“Just because the past didn’t turn out like you wanted it to, doesn’t mean your future can’t be better than you ever imagined.”

“Just because someone desires you, does not mean that they value you.”

“Nothing in this life is easy. Don’t expect things to be given to you; you have to go out and get it.”

“Accept that you are enough. You don’t need to be anything that you are not.”

“Your task is not to judge or punish. Karma will take care of that. Your task is to love.” -Brian Weiss

“You have seeds of greatness inside of you. Today can be your new beginning. Today could be the start of something amazing.”

“To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion. To be worthy, not respectable and wealthy, not rich. To listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart. To study hard, to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common — this is my symphony.” -William Ellery Channing

“Do not take to HEART and MIND the ill spoken words of others, leave them at the door, and watch the winds of time blow them away.”

Do what is right, not what is easy.

Don’t allow the past to keep you stuck. Learn from it, let go, and move on.

Talk about your blessings more than you talk about your burdens.

Instead of obsessing over the things you can’t change, focus on what you CAN: Your attitude, mindset, and energy. -Mandy Hale

But you know what is devastating? Living a life you don’t really want because you never had the guts to live your truth. What I mean by “your truth” is what you know to be what you most want to do. The person or people you most want to love. The things that cut you open and ignite your nerves and can send you over the edge but you keep going back because you know, despite everything, that this is what’s meant for you. If nothing else, the reason to do it is this: the truth inside you will win out eventually. Or it will drive you mad. Your truth isn’t a passing thought or feeling that will just dissipate one day. You won’t get over what’s really meant for you. You will only ever become more and more aware that you’re denying yourself the greatest joy in fear of the possibly greatest disappointment. I can’t believe I’m throwing this quote in here, but I can’t think of anything that sums it up better: “the brave may not live forever, but the cautious don’t live at all.” -Brianna Wiest

“Life will always try to make things difficult for you, but every time you overcome difficulties, you come out stronger.”

“Learn from your struggles instead of reliving them.”

“We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean, because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag.” -Jeremy Glass, We Can’t Get Lost Anymore

“Let go of resentment, for it will hold you back. Do not worry about what could’ve been, what is to come is what matters.” -Leon Brown

“Life is precious, do not waste it doing anything that your heart does not respect or agree with.” -Leon Brown

“In 20 years people won’t remember your name or achievements, or maybe even what you look like. But in 20 years they will remember how you made them feel and the memories you gave them.”

“Be quiet. Listen. Know you are heard. There are forces at work far beyond anything you can comprehend.” -Markus Rothkranz

He didn’t say anything. Maybe there wasn’t anything to say. Instead, he wrapped his arms around me again, only this time he guided my cheek onto his chest and ran his hand over the back of my head, clumsy but comforting. I closed my eyes and listened to the thud of his heart until mine matched pace with his. Finally, he rested his cheek on top of my head and whispered, ‘We don’t have time to be sad.’

“I want you to tell me about every person you’ve ever been in love with. Tell me why you loved them, then tell me why they loved you. Tell me about a day in your life you didn’t think you’d live through. Tell me what the word “home” means to you and tell me in a way that I’ll know your mother’s name just by the way you describe your bed room when you were 8. See, I wanna know the first time you felt the weight of hate and if that day still trembles beneath your bones. Do you prefer to play in puddles of rain or bounce in the bellies of snow? And if you were to build a snowman, would you rip two branches from a tree to build your snowman arms? Or would you leave the snowman armless for the sake of being harmless to the tree? And if you would, would you notice how that tree weeps for you because your snowman has no arms to hug you every time you kiss him on the cheek? Do you kiss your friends on the cheek? Do you sleep beside them when they’re sad, even if it makes your lover mad? Do you think that anger is a sincere emotion or just the timid motion of a fragile heart trying to beat away its pain? See, I wanna know what you think of your first name. And if you often lie awake at night and imagine your mother’s joy when she spoke it for the very first time. I want you tell me all the ways you’ve been unkind. Tell me all the ways you’ve been cruel. See, I wanna know more than what you do for a living. I wanna know how much of your life you spend just giving. And if you love yourself enough to also receive sometimes. I wanna know if you bleed sometimes through other people’s wounds.” -Andrea Gibson

In life, I have made a lot mistakes and I have felt a lot of pain, but mistakes make me wiser and pain makes me stronger.

I don’t regret the things I’ve done. I regret the things I didn’t do when I had the chance.

The secret of success: stop wishing, start doing.

Keep calm and focus on the positive.

True friends won’t grow apart, even if they don’t talk everyday.

“Society promotes overnight delivery, express checkout lines, 24-hour customer service, instant rebates, instant messaging, and instant coffee. We are constantly encouraged to expect what we want, how we want it, and to have it right away. We are conditioned to move more quickly, multitask, speed-read, and drive-through, and although it sounds productive, it leaves no room in our lives to learn patience, tolerance, listening, or conscious breathing. Make time. Make room. You’ll thank yourself later – I promise.”

You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. -Johnny Cash

“You are worthy of love and respect. You are beautiful, gifted, and intelligent. Don’t let the storm make you forget it.” -T. Davis

“I really wondered why people were always doing what they didn’t like doing. It seemed like life was a sort of narrowing tunnel. Right when you were born, the tunnel was huge. You could be anything. Then, like, the absolute second after you were born, the tunnel narrowed down to about half that size. You were a boy, and already it was certain you wouldn’t be a mother and it was likely you wouldn’t become a manicurist or a kindergarten teacher. Then you started to grow up and everything you did closed the tunnel in some more. You broke your arm climbing a tree and you ruled out being a baseball pitcher. You failed everyday math test you ever took and you canceled any hope of ever being a scientist. Like that. On and on through the years until you were stuck. You’d become a baker or a librarian or a bartender. Or an accountant. And there you were. I figured that on the day you died, the tunnel would be so narrow, you’d have squeezed yourself in with so many choices, that you just got squashed.” -Carol Rifka Brunt, Tell the Wolves I’m Home

People hate you for 1 of 3 reasons. 1) They hate themselves 2) They want to be you 3) They see you as a threat When you love yourself you are incapable of hating anyone no matter what they’ve done. -Tony Gaskins

“Whoever is trying to bring you down is already below you.”

“Whatever you’re going through, just know that many others have experienced the same and gotten out of it just fine.”

“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”

“Sometimes it’s better to have nobody at all, than to have someone that is only there for you half the time.”

“I beg you…to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer…” -Rainer Maria Rilke – Letters to a Young Poet

“It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign — celebrate your struggle.” -Neale Donald Walsch

“If you want to change something about yourself, whether it is your hair color, your makeup, or your nose, I support you. If you do not, then I support you in that. I urge you to do exactly what you want to do to make yourself feel beautiful. And I’m not talking about beauty according to magazine standards or Hollywood standards, but your standards. Look it’s your life, why should other people dictate how you look? Why should their opinions make you feel negatively about your appearance? If you want to eat that cookie, do it, it isn’t hurting anyone else, but it is making you happy. If you don’t want to shave your armpits, don’t. You only have the single life, living it according to someone elses’ standards would be a terrible waste of it.”

Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow.” -AW

And you know, for the first time, for the very first time, that there will now be a before and an after, a was and a will be. And that you will never again quite be the same person you were.” -Jennifer Donnelly

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”

Be inclusive and loving, and look beyond the form of people’s beliefs to their essence. There is no right way; there is only the way that is right for you.” -Sanaya Roman

“Someone asked me if I was a motivational speaker now. I don’t believe in motivation. Motivation is you in this moment getting pumped about a future moment. That is great, if your goal is to get something done. What I am about is truth. From my experience, our default setting is that we are unlimited. Our natural resting state is to evolve and expand. Our challenge is getting through the old conditioning and belief systems that stop us. I am not about positivity, I am about the truth. When someone says “I can’t do this because of x.” I think, wow, you believe a lie about yourself. That is actually not true! That is something your parents taught you. Your parents were also taught that lie. We were taught a lot of lies; “You can’t do that.” or “It’s not that easy.” or even the idea that you need money to be happy. From my experience, not from shit that I have heard other people say, Your happiness is your natural resting state. We take on too many things that don’t matter at all and make no room for things that would cause us to expand and live from our core. When you let go of all these things that you have held onto, (the past and the future, your old story, addictions, people pleasing etc) You make the freedom for real insight to enter your mind. This insight can’t get through all day because you are worried about a football team, or what your ex thinks of you. YOU ARE INFINITE! (Your belief system has trained you to see that truth as hokey but you actually are). Someone asked me how I can “Maintain” this. I don’t maintain it. It is the freaking truth. Once NEO experienced the Matrix, he didn’t have to maintain believing it. He just was aware that was the truth and moved differently from that understanding. So no, I am not a “motivational speaker”, I am just calling out the lies. Once you see through the bull shit you can move faster than any “Motivation” will ever get you. But that is just your natural state. It isn’t hard work at all. It’s effortless allowing and internal focus.” -Kyle Cease

You don’t need to waste your time on someone who only wants you around when it fits their needs.

“Be the real thing. Sit back, allow, understand that analyzing is totally an illusion. Show up and stay in the room. Stop stopping. Stop starting over. Understand that when you start, it is going to seem like it isn’t working. That does not mean that it wont work eventually. Stay with it, you will expand. That is what we are here to do. Expand. Just allow yourself to grow. You don’t need to cut corners to get something. If you show up, allow yourself to go through the growing pains, and stay with it, everything you want will happen. Everything you want. Get to that place where your focus is on your expansion, not on getting anything from others. People don’t realize that they are in a bad addictive habit of trying to get things to be happy. They want to manipulate to be happy. When they can’t get what they want, they rely on temporary coping mechanisms. But it’s when you FACE IT head on, you expand. You see that what you were worried about is not real. Once you see it isn’t real, it’s like the Matrix. You can’t ever go back. Why would you? You become incredible. You become something you could not see. This is why analyzing can be total bull shit. It can be useful at times, but if you think to yourself, I am going to work out, however I have tried it before and it is hard. Analyzing just lied to you. It wont be hard after a couple weeks, but analyzing can’t see that next dimension. Analyzing is telling you how things will go from your limited temporary perception. But when you face that illusion head on, you will expand and have a different vision of yourself. YOU DON’T NEED ANYTHING TO BE HAPPY. If you think you do, that tells you the illusional limit to who you think you are. You are limited to a space that says “I need that one person to like me.” “I need that one job.” Bull shit, you are unlimited and if you face that head on, you will see that what was stopping you was not real. You are unlimited. Period. The second you say “Yeah right.” You analyzed yourself out of this possibility. You looked at how you were in the past and found an excuse to not start. What a nice coping mechanism. Get it yet? Start, stay in the room. Let analyzing happen, but don’t believe it. It is just a collection of thoughts from the past that aren’t true. Just stay in the room and you will see that you have a different dimension to you.” -Kyle Cease

“Fear and faith have something in common. They both ask us to believe in something we cannot see.” -Joel Osteen

“When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power.”

“Somebody needs what you have to give. It may not be your money; it may be your time. It may be your listening ear. It may be your arms to encourage. It may be your smile to uplift. Who knows? Maybe just like that little baby, putting your arm around somebody and letting him or her know that you care can help begin to heal that person’s heart. Maybe you can give a rescuing hug.”

“How will you know if you have made the right decision? It’s when you picked the harder choice yet your heart is at peace.”

“Because your existence in time and space is unique, there are lives that only YOU can touch.” -Harry Palmer

“Try not to take things personally. What people say about you is a reflection of them, not you.”

“To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.” -Howard Zinn

“By being yourself, you put something beautiful into the world that was not there before.” -Edwin Elliot

“She had just realized there were two things that prevent us from achieving our dreams: believing them to be impossible or seeing those dreams made possible by some sudden turn of the wheel of fortune, when you least expected it.

It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance — you don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change.

When you know that, your self esteem does improve, no surgery or botox or cosmetics required.” -GP

Your life is as amazing as you want it to be, but first, you have to let it be that way.” -Chad Sugg

“Too many people mistook envy for happiness. They believed other people wanting to do the things they were doing was more important than doing the things they wanted to do. So they’d edit their photographs and edit their lives and edit and lie until from a distance, it looked like they had the perfect life. But life isn’t something that should be edited. Life shouldn’t be cut. The only way you’ll ever discover what it truly means to be alive and human is by sharing the full experience of what it means to be human and each blemish and freckle that comes with it.” -Iain Thomas

“The less you respond to rude, critical, argumentative people…the more peaceful your life will become.” -Mandy Hale

“Be selective in your battles, sometimes peace is better than being right.”

Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.

Two of the hardest tests in life: The patience to wait for the right moment and the courage to accept whatever you encounter. -Paulo Coelho

“Don’t wait. Life goes faster than you think.”

Try not to fall for someone who isn’t willing to catch you. If someone really loves and wants to see you, they’ll find a reason, a way, and they’ll make the effort.

“Leave people to their opinions and judgements. They cannot harm you; it is their understanding that is faulty, not yours.” -Leon Brown

“When your dreams turn to dust, vacuum.”

“If life were easy, we would be bored. That’s why we are faced with challenges everyday, so that we can work to make ourselves happy.”

“That’s simple,” says the old man. “They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.” -Paulo Coelho

People who are meant to be together, will always find their way in the end.

Don’t be discouraged. It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.

“If you don’t have trust, you don’t have anything.” -Michael Hunter

“Taking the easy road through life only brings you to a quicker end to it.”

“Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes. Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Relax and let life come to you, don’t force it.”

“Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes. Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Relax and let life come to you, don’t force it.”

“Be wise and do the right thing. Don’t let irrelevant people waste your time. Your time is valuable and should be spent with valuable people.”

“Prove yourself to yourself not others”

“I am done with the past, the future has plenty of room for change.”

“When I let go of what’s not meant to be, I clear a path for good stuff to find me!”

“We will find out what we need to do when we quit lying to ourselves and see the situation for what it is.”

“The most beautiful people are the ones who went through the toughest situations in life but still somehow manage to keep a smile on their face.”

“Chasing the wrong things can make you lose a good thing.” -Charlie Kaufman

“To become better at anything in life, you must be prepared to stretch your comfort zone.”

A bad attitude can literally block love, blessings, & destiny from finding you. Don’t be the reason you don’t succeed. -Mandy Hale

“Love is the most beautiful thing to have, hardest thing to earn and most painful thing to lose.”

“You can’t wait for a good life to come. You have to make one.”

“Sometimes a break from your routine is the very thing you need.”

“Sometimes people don’t notice the things we do for them until we stop doing it.”

“You can search high & low to find happiness on earth, yet unless you love yourself, you will never find your true belonging.” -Leon Brown

“If I’ve learned anything from life, it’s that sometimes, the darkest times can bring us to the brightest places. I’ve learned that the most toxic people can teach us the most important lessons; that our most painful struggles can grant us the most necessary growth; and that the most heartbreaking losses of friendship and love can make room for the most wonderful people. I’ve learned that what seems like a curse in the moment can actually be a blessing, and that what seems like the end of the road is actually just the discovery that we are meant to travel down a different path. I’ve learned that no matter how difficult things seem, there is always hope. And I’ve learned that no matter how powerless we feel or how horrible things seem, we can’t give up. We have to keep going. Even when it’s scary, even when all of our strength seems gone, we have to keep picking ourselves back up and moving forward, because whatever we’re battling in the moment, it will pass, and we will make it through. We’ve made it this far. We can make it through whatever comes next.”

“Be ready to overcome your present situation and you will move on to a newer and better situation. Your attitude determines where you go.”

Get your hopes up. Raise your expectations. Your best days are still in front of you. -Joel Osteen

“Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year’s time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody. No, let us devote our life to worthwhile actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings.” —Andre Maurois

“Some of life’s best lessons are learned at the worst times.” -Blake Atkins

“Because it´s only when you’re tested that you truly discover who you are. And it´s only when you’re tested that you discover who you can be. The person that you want to be does exist, somewhere in the other side of hard work and faith, and belief and beyond the heartache and fear of what life has.”

“Most relationships fail because we’re too busy pointing out each others mistakes and not enough time enjoying each others company.”

Let go of the old, take hold of the new and believe that 2013 will be your best year yet! -Joel Osteen

Never be afraid to reinvent. A new year gives you permission to be whoever you wanna be. -Mandy Hale

“When it’s yours, love it. One day it might not be yours, so value and appreciate it while it’s still yours.”

“If you have problems with your body, you go to a gym and you work out. If you have problems with your mind, you go see a shrink. But if you have problems with your soul, there’s really nowhere to go but music.”

“If life was easy, we would be bored, that’s why we are faced with challenges everyday, so that we can work to make ourselves happy.”

“First know yourself, then you will begin to understand why things are as they are, and why life is as it is.” -Leon Brown

Doubt sees the obstacles. Faith sees the way. Doubt sees the darkest night. Faith sees the day. Doubt dreads to take a step. Faith soars high. Doubt questions “Who believes?” Faith answers “I”

In most cases, negative comments from others are their own fears or insecurity being projected onto you. If you allow them to, these doubts will seep in and throw you off your path. It is important to have positivity around you during this time. Only share your dream with people that you know will support your endeavors. -Allison Maslan

“If you are going to be courageous, an example for all those who are ready to step into their power, then you must be willing to show the world all of who you are. You must have the guts to throw off the chains of modesty and mediocrity in order to be the light that the world needs.” -Debbie Ford

“Never trust anyone that doesn’t smoke pot or listen to Bob Dylan…Never trust anyone who doesn’t like the beach. And never, ever, EVER, trust ANYONE who says they don’t like dogs. You meet someone who doesn’t like dogs, you alert the authorities immediately and you sure as SHIT don’t marry them.”

You have 2 choices in life. Cave into pressure, stay stuck and allow life to continually overwhelm you. Or step out into the big unknown world, face your fears and aim for a life with purpose. -Allison Maslan

“Take your chances or watch someone take them from you.”

“Life only becomes a battle when you take everything personal. Stand back from the conflicts & you will see clearly.” -LB

“Don’t be afraid of change, because it is leading you to a new beginning.” -Joyce Meyers

“Surround yourself with people who know your worth. You don’t need too many people to be happy, just a few REAL ones who can appreciate you for who you are.”

“The best things in life are free. And it is important never to lose sight of that. So look around you. Wherever you see friendship, loyalty, laughter, and love…there is your treasure.” -Neale Donald Walsch

“If nothing goes right, just go left.”

“If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next… Don’t. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness. Don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present – each moment as it comes – because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart, where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.” -Julia Brown

“Never compare your journey with others. Your path is unique. Own it and make the best out of it.”

“Never waste your feelings on someone who doesn’t value them.”

“Great things will happen when you get up, dust yourself off, and go after life with determination and courage.”

“Physical beauty and ugliness is not very important. The real thing is the inner. I can teach you how to be beautiful from within, and that is real beauty. Once it is there, your physical form won’t matter much. Your eyes will start shining with joy; your face will have a gleam, a glory. The form will become immaterial. When something starts flowing from within you, some grace, then the outer form is just put aside.” -Osho

You’re not a kid anymore. You have the right to choose your own life. You can start again. If you want a cat, all you have to do is choose a life in which you can have a cat. It’s simple. It’s your right. -Haruki Murakami

“I can choose to let it define me, confine me, refine me, outshine me, or I can choose to move on and leave it behind me.”

“If the past is not resolved, future relationships will suffer. Let your heart heal, before you open the door to another.” -Leon Brown

“When the day is over, let it go. Don’t dwell on what you could’ve or should’ve done. Tomorrow is another day and another chance.” -Mandy Hale

Just because something hasn’t worked out for you now, doesn’t mean there is not something big in store for you in the future.

“Never place your happiness in someone else’s hands because if they walk away, so does your happiness.” -Robert Tew

“Life is too short to worry about stupid things. Have fun. Fall in love. Regret nothing, and don’t let people bring you down.”

“You can’t have worry in your life if you plan on having inner happiness. Subtract the worry and live in faith.”

You are good at something, stop lying to yourself. You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.

“Don’t be embarrassed by who you are. They’re going to judge you no matter what you do.”

“We spend too much time thinking and not enough time doing.”

“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.” -Maya Angelou

“Love doesn’t hurt you. A person that doesn’t know how to love hurts you. Don’t get it twisted.” -TG

“It’s hard to leave- until you leave. Then it’s the easiest goddamned thing in the world.” -John Green

Nothing has turned out as we expected! It never does. Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect. We take what we get and are thankful it’s no worse than it is. -Gone With the Wind

“Things only get as bad as you are willing to let them.”

“Go with the flow. Force nothing. Let it happen, or not happen..trusting that whichever way it goes, it’s for the best.” -Mandy Hale

“I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.” -Robin Williams

“Silence is pure, it draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other, can sit without speaking.”

“Do it from the heart or not at all.” -Jeanette Winterson

“Don’t rush for things. If something is bound to happen, it will happen. In the right time, with the right person and for the best reason.”

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” -Audrey Hepburn

“When you’re about to say goodbye, think twice, look back, and remember how hard it was to say hello.”

“Letting go of the past is your first step to happiness.”

“The best way to be happy is to turn the negatives into positives. Be thankful for what you have, and don’t let anyone steal your joy.”

There’s no reason to look back when you have so much to look forward to.

This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about. -Marilyn Monroe

“Saying nothing…sometimes says the most.” -Emily Dickenson

I have realized that your troubles don’t seem so bad if you just stop talking about them all the time.

“If you don’t have trust, you don’t have anything.” -Michael Hunter

“She who knows herself is never disturbed by what others think about her, and he who knows himself is never disturbed by what others think about him. Just be the best version of you there is, and try to do that again tomorrow.”

“I think every man should learn the true definition of what romance is. It’s how you stimulate her mind. It’s through real conversation and showing her how original you are. Intelligence is sexy. It has nothing to do with sex.”

“Embrace struggle… It is your greatest teacher.” -Russell Simmons

“Stop trying to point out the flaws of others and focus on correcting your own.”

“Don’t compare your struggles to anyone else’s. Don’t get discouraged by the success of others. Make your own path and never give up.”

“People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is an emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.” -SM

“You can’t go through life striking out at people who hurt or scare you. All that does is show them that you’re weak. It tells them that they’ve wounded you, and a strong woman never shows her wounds unless it serves a purpose.” -LC

“Men learn to love the woman they are attracted to. Women learn to become attracted to the man they fall in love with.” -WA

“Don’t give up too soon. Some people want to weaken you so they can control you.”

“Being different is always going be a tough climb. There’s always going be people that are scared of it. But at the end of the day, never give those bullies, those people that are so ignorant, the power to affect you. If you give that power to them, you’re letting them win. And they don’t deserve that. What you’re doing by being yourself is you’re keeping it real, and you’re being really brave.”

“Keep in mind that many people gave up hope of ever seeing themselves rich or happy, it’s actually quite common. The real courage is in living, striving and persevering for what you believe.”

“If you truly love someone, you should be more interested in keeping them happy than in being right.”

“Argue? For what? Do not continue the battle. One may think they have won because you chose silence. But the true winner is the one with peace in their heart.”

“When you allow what someone says or does to upset you, you’re allowing them to control you.” -Joel Osteen

“Slow down. Calm down. Don’t worry. Don’t hurry. Trust the process.”

Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing. -Eve Ensler

“Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping … waiting … and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir … open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us … guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love … the clarity of hatred … the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we’d be truly dead.” -Joss Whedon

“The best way to get rid of the pain is to feel the pain. And when you feel the pain and go beyond it, you’ll see there’s a very intense love that is wanting to awaken itself.” -Deepak Chopra

“Never place your happiness in someone else’s hands because if they walk away, so does your happiness.” -Robert Tew

“You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated.” -Maya Angelou

“I think people make mistakes and they’re going to disappoint you, especially the people who love you most. And if you can’t forgive them for not being perfect, you’re going to end up alone.”

“When we judge, it’s difficult to understand. When we assume, it’s easier to be disappointed. When we try harder, it’s easier to succeed.”

“Pay attention to the people that help you when you’re low, so you know who to ignore when you’re at your high.”

If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place. -Nora Roberts

No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have a unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has a purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Persist and persevere, your desired path remains possible. -Brad Gast

“Don’t try to change people. It won’t work, and they will end up resenting you. Only God can change people!” -Joyce Meyer

“Even the greatest was once a beginner. Don’t be afraid to take that first step.”

“If you want to change something about yourself, whether it is your hair color, your makeup, or your nose, I support you. If you do not, then I support you in that. I urge you to do exactly what you want to do to make yourself feel beautiful. And I’m not talking about beauty according to magazine standards or Hollywood standards, but your standards. Look it’s your life, why should other people dictate how you look? Why should their opinions make you feel negatively about your appearance? If you want to eat that cookie, do it, it isn’t hurting anyone else, but it is making you happy. If you don’t want to shave your armpits, don’t. You only have the single life, living it according to someone elses’ standards would be a terrible waste of it.”

“People NEVER remember the million times you’ve helped them, only the ONE TIME you don’t.”

“Life is short. Do more of what makes you happy.”

“There is no point in wishing things can be different. We cannot change the past. We can only accept the change and move forward.”

“If you can’t control what you think, you will not be able to control what you do.” -Joyce Meyer

“You have to be fearless and take chances. Don’t live life fearing what comes next. That’s not what living is about.”

“We often just accept the things that we like, and complain a lot about the things that we don’t like. But if we could, like, intensely dwell on the really great things in life the way we intensely dwell on the negative things in life; I think that would be fantastic.” -Hank Green

“Don’t be someone’s downtime, spare time, part time or sometime. If they can’t be there for you all of the time, then they’re not even worth your time.” -unknown

“The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory.”

“Never, ever, ever give up! Chances are if you FEEL like giving up, you’re right on the edge of your breakthrough.” -Mandy Hale

“This is not the time to shrink back in fear. Move forward in faith. Get up every morning knowing you are gifted.” -Joel Osteen

“Somebody died last night, but we didn’t. Somebody didn’t wake up this morning, but we did. We’re not lucky, we are blessed!”

“When someone does something wrong, don’t forget all the things they did right.”

If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself. -Barbara de Angelis

“Never give up. Always find a reason to keep trying.”

“You may not have gone where you intended to go but you will end up where you need to be.” -Douglas Adams

“Insecure people have to make excuses and put others down to feel confident. Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you’re better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone in the first place.”

“Don’t wish for it, work for it.”

“Don’t look back or you’ll trip over what’s in front of you.”

“And then one student said that happiness is what happens when you go to bed on the hottest night of the summer, a night so hot you can’t even wear a tee-shirt and you sleep on top of the sheets instead of under them, although try to sleep is probably more accurate. And then at some point late, late, late at night, say just a bit before dawn, the heat finally breaks and the night turns into cool and when you briefly wake up, you notice that you’re almost chilly, and in your groggy, half-consciousness, you reach over and pull the sheet around you and just that flimsy sheet makes it warm enough and you drift back off into a deep sleep. And it’s that reaching, that gesture, that reflex we have to pull what’s warm – whether it’s something or someone – toward us, that feeling we get when we do that, that feeling of being sad in the world and ready for sleep, that’s happiness.”

“Don’t let your character change color with your environment. Find out who you are and let it stay it’s true color.” -Rachel Scott

“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it. But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know.” -Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

“Life is a daily cleansing. Negativity must be washed away, if you wish to attract positive experiences to your life.” -Leon Brown

“Life does not always give you what you want, but if you look closely you will see that it gives what you need for growth.” -Leon Brown

“If you tell yourself something often enough you will start to believe it, that is why you must make self love your mantra.” -Leon Brown

“Every time you subtract negative from your life, you make room for more positive.”

“We think about tomorrow when today hasn’t even finished yet. We plan our future like we’re sure we will have one; we don’t live day by day. Yes, we might stand up everyday and fall onto our bed after school, but we never really stop to notice what is around us. We live like life is something regular, but it isn’t. Too often we forget how fragile it is; how we can die any minute. What if I wake up tomorrow and I forget to even notice how lucky I am? People die in their sleep sometimes. I walk downstairs and I could have fallen to my death there. I eat my bread with no worries on how I could choke and, yes, maybe die. I will run to catch my bus. It will be a regular day; which means I will survive. Once surviving is no longer regular everyday, you have to start fighting for every tomorrow. What I’m trying to say is that you can die everyday; maybe of a heart attack, or get hit by a car, or maybe about a thousand other possibilities. Humans die every second. Who gives you the assurance you’re not one of them today? Tomorrow? Next week? I don’t want you to wake up everyday and be happy and enjoy the day, because we can’t. I don’t try and tell you to appreciate it more, and to tell yourself this everyday. I want you to stop sometimes, and look at what is around you, and be thankful for your existence. We want to wake up and enjoy the day like it’s our last, but we’re only humans. We forget. You could try to remind yourself, but that will only work for a few days. Maybe writing it on a piece of paper and sticking it on your wall will remind you more often. Tattoo it, then you could remember it for a few months; but, with time we forget. It gets usual. You don’t look at that paper on your wall the same. You don’t notice it anymore. You don’t read your tattoo anymore because it became only black ink on your wrists. No, we can’t appreciate our existence everyday, but we can sometimes stop and look around. Inhale the atmosphere because we never know if we are inhaling it for the last time. My biggest fear is that one day I will be laying on the ground bleeding, knowing I’m going to die. I will die with thousands of words that should have been said, with hugs that I gave daily, but now the unattainable wish of just having one more hug; no longer possible because that person isn’t here and you’re going to be away forever. I don’t want to die full of regrets, with things running in my head of what I should have done different; where I just would have been a bit less stubborn, or how I’ve never told the girl how I really felt, or maybe how I will miss the summer light that filters through the leaves of the trees. The simple things will become the most precious ones. We will, and that is makes life so precious… never knowing when your journey ends. All we can do is stop sometimes and inhale what is around us, and hope we learn to appreciate it enough.”

“It doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life, because that’s going to happen. All that matters is that you gotta get up.” -Ben Affleck

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”

“All relationships are important because they reveal the true nature of the relationship we have with ourselves.” -Robert Tew

“It’s funny. Your muscles have a certain memory about them. That’s why we can tie our shoes or play piano without looking. But then you spend a long enough time with someone and your bodies memorize each other, you know? The warmth of your back, the pace of your heartbeat, your tickly eyelashes, and the way your fingers would curl in sequence when I used to play with your palm. Another person is like moving to a new country where you don’t know the language, it’s a scary thing.” -To Claire; From Sonny

“Find the one you can be yourself around, you can say whatever you want, you can laugh, you can smile, you can scream, you can hug, you can kiss, you can fight and make up at the very end of the night but you’re still absolutely crazy about each other.”

“Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be.” -Rick Warren

“They say one day our life will flash before our eyes. Make it worth watching.”

“Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80’s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80’s movie.” -Easy A

“Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don’t think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn’t stop you from doing anything at all.” -Richard P. Feynman

—-
A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.

Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, “I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.”

The agent replied, “I’m sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first; and then I’m sure we’ll be able to work something out.”

The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, “DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?”

Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. “May I have your attention, please?”, she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. “We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14”.

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, “F*** You!”

Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry sir, you’ll have to get in line for that, too.”

“You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It’s their mistake, not my failing.” -Richard P. Feynman

“Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside.”

“There is one statement I want you to keep after you are finished with this book. It is more of a mantra, really. Nonetheless, let it crawl across your mind any time you feel you have been backed into a corner spiritually. It is very simple: Live your life, no matter what life is. Take that with you. Live your life. No matter what that life is.” -Corey Taylor, Seven Deadly Sins

“You don’t need bigger boobs. You Need to read better books.”

“People always think that when you sleep together, there’s always something that is happening in between the sheets and the bed. But let me tell you, It’s not always like that. The feeling of actually hugging each other until you fall asleep, the warmth of each other’s breath, and the total happiness in the morning when you wake up right beside him. Everything may sound too good to be true, but sometimes it takes a lot of responsibility and love to be able to be as wholesome as possible. Sleeping with your special someone is one of the most heartwarming experiences you’ll ever have. No nothing, simply hugging and smiling yourself to sleep.”

“Being strong sometimes means being able to let go.”

“You are where you are, at the time that you are, for a reason. Don’t waste it by wishing to be somewhere else.” -Mandy Hale

“Have the maturity to know sometimes silence is more powerful than having the last word.” -Thema Davis

“Always be true to your feelings because the more you deny what you feel, the stronger it becomes.”

“Forgiveness is freeing up and putting to better use the energy once consumed by holding grudges, harboring resentments, and nursing unhealed wounds. It is rediscovering the strengths we always had and relocating our limitless capacity to understand and accept other people and ourselves.” -Sidney and Suzanne Simon

“There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.” -Elizabeth Gilbert

“How boring would Super Mario Brothers have been if the goal of the game was for Mario to just complain about each bad guy and not do anything. If Mario just sat on the couch and bitched about how crappy his parents were, the game would be terrible. If Mario then decided to not start moving forward, but instead decided to seek therapy and find out why

Sometimes you have to let some people go of from your life, who doesn’t really deserves to be in your life..

Murugan November 10, 2012 at 6:33 am

Yes friend you are right.
If someone makes you miserable more than they make you happy, it doesn’t matter how much you love them, you need to let them go.

My ex-husband and I had always manged to stay friendly after our divorce, but I always wanted to get back together with him, and he was never sure. So, I thought it was about time I MADE him sure! All it took was a visit to your website and a request for a specific love spell, and acc spell’s powers began to work their magic. My spell is working because guess what: My “ex” is soon to be my husband again! This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you, acc spell. Words are not enough. contact him templeoflove1@gmail.com he can be a great help

I will forever talk good about Priest of Pyramid because i was childless for 7 years and my husband was no longer coming home for dinner. He normally comes home late on week days and does not even come home during weekends. I met with Priest of Pyramid when i visited Egypt during the death of Muammar Gaddafi because we where amongst the UN agent. He saw me and told me all that i am passing through and i was very surprise because that was our first day of meeting. I visited his temple the next day and he did a bless my womb spell and bring my husband back spell for me. When i return to Hungary the next week, my husband warmly welcome me back home and we where united for good. I became pregnant during December and i am happy to inform the general public that i am now a mother to a baby boy. This is the most happy period of my life and i promise to forever tell everyone about Priest of Pyramid because he is a truthful and honest priest. If anyone need his help, you can contact him through templeofpermanethealing@gmail.com and he is going to help you. Erzsébet

We forgive everything but forget nothing and we bear in mind that to forgive in it’s simplest terms means simply not to be angry at anyone
