You can't put yourself down and rise up to who you were created to be....If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily. - Gerald Good...Be helpful. When you see a person without a smile, give them one of yours. - Zig Ziglar...Our notions about happiness entrap us. We forget they're just ideas. Our idea of happiness can prevent us from actually being happy. - Thich Nhat Hanh...The older I get, the more I would rather sit alone, in silence, than with people who judge the way I live. ...The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit. - Molière...Life is too short to waste your time on people who don't respect, appreciate, and value you. ...You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I'll rise. - Maya Angelou...When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power....Be thankful for your failures. They reveal the winning strategies. - James Clear...The universe looks after you when you look after you. Keep doing the inner work....The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best....Fail often so you can succeed sooner....Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will....The one who is meant for you encourages you to be your best but still loves and accepts you at your worst....Push yourself before life pushes you around....Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children....There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. - Thich Nhat Hanh...Great things never came from comfort zones.Weight Bender 1Taking Chance5 MilesIt doesn't matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
