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!”

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…”

Where He guides, He provides

The most beautiful people have the deepest scars. They’re the people who don’t let their pasts control or define them. The most people beautiful are the people who spend more time helping others than trying to figure out how others can help them. Beautiful people give, not take. Beautiful people find the beauty in whatContinue reading “Where He guides, He provides”

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”

You’ve Got To Do Your Own Growing

The easiest thing in the world to do is give up. As a society, we’re encouraged to “just quit” when our circumstances allow us to become unhappy. We think the grass is greener on the other side, but what people don’t realize is that watering your own lawn is just as effective, if not moreContinue reading “You’ve Got To Do Your Own Growing”

This so-called Life

I admire many people in my life for countless reasons. But I’ve grown to respect and admire the people in my life who have taught me that selflessness is the most respectable attribute one could ever possibly possess; yet, it is the hardest attribute to come by and more importantly, the hardest quality one couldContinue reading “This so-called Life”

Choose Love

“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” Everyone wants to love and be loved. You can’t expect to be loved without giving love in return. “We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence, and its only end.” All that matters in the endContinue reading “Choose Love”

Who Sits in Your Front Row?

Invite your audience carefully. Not everyone is healthy enough to have front row seats in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least minimize, your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships/friendships.Continue reading “Who Sits in Your Front Row?”

Sticks and Stones

Never let your experiences limit you. Don’t let them define you, either. The more you’ve been through, the more opportunity you’re given to help others. A littered past can make for a clean future if you get rid of the trash. Wanting to change and changing are two entirely different concepts. And actions? They doContinue reading “Sticks and Stones”
