“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.”
If you want people to like you, treat them as though they’re important. They are. Even if you don’t care if people like you, treat others as though they’re important. They are.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. What we think, we become.”
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
You know those people who argue with just about every point you make just for argument’s sake? Appreciate those people. They keep you on your toes and they clearly think highly enough about what you have to say that they’ll state an opinion about it.
Choosing to accept the loss of friends, loved ones, and relationships is choosing to embrace the present with an open mind and an open heart; it’s choosing to embrace life.

Optimists are people who expect good things to happen to them; pessimists are people who expect the opposite. Optimists see the silver lining in every situation, even when presented with what seems impossible to bounce back from. Pessimists expect the world to dress them in the morning and become constantly disappointed when it doesn’t.
“Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.”
