Smile at a Stranger!

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned thatContinue reading “Smile at a Stranger!”

Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life isContinue reading “Daily Reminder”

What are you Thankful for?

I’m thankful for the mini van my parents made me drive my senior year in high school because it makes me appreciate the car I drive now (haha!). I’m thankful FOR a car to drive, gas in my tank, and hearing my favorite song come on in the radio. I’m thankful for the season inContinue reading “What are you Thankful for?”

No such thing as the same Story

“If you judge other people, you  have no time to love them.” – Mother Teresa Every person has a story– and it’s not yours.  Similar situations aren’t exact situations.  You don’t know the road another person has traveled… do you really believe that puts you in a position to judge?  Focus on improving your ownContinue reading “No such thing as the same Story”

One Life

“Releasing the past and embracing forgiveness, I am refreshed and renewed.” As you grow older, you realize that the most beautiful people are the kindest people, the people with the biggest hearts… the people who are happy because they’ve found comfort in their hardships and learned unmistakable lessons in their trials. You realize that theContinue reading “One Life”

What Are You Being Prepared For?

Let your problems prepare you for your destiny. If your life is tough, God has the biggest plans for you. Being pampered doesn’t build strong character; troubles, trials, and tribulations do. Anyone can be resentful, angry, hurtful, and bitter. Only the strong can be forgiving, loving, and a better person because of their hardships. Choose toContinue reading “What Are You Being Prepared For?”

I Believe…

I believe that forgiveness isn’t supposed to be earned. It’s supposed to be given. Forgiveness isn’t for the perpetrator, but for the hurt… and it’s not always easy, but it’s usually worth it. I believe that how far you’ll go in life is often determined by who you’re with. There are people who will dragContinue reading “I Believe…”

Chi la dura la vince

“Anyone can give up… it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart… that’s true strength.” I’ve heard people close to me ask “Is this all there is to life?” THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Sometimes “this is all there is.” MakeContinue reading “Chi la dura la vince”

A Little Bit of Life

“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, forContinue reading “A Little Bit of Life”

Love Life

Life is short. As humans, we think we’ll live forever… it scares us to believe otherwise. How many of us truly appreciate life daily? How many of us really only appreciate life until someone we know has had their own life taken from them? Until someone you know or love has had their own lifeContinue reading “Love Life”
