Everything is going to be all right. Maybe not today but eventually.
What I do today is important because I’m exchanging a day of my life for it.
Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to walk boldly through them.
Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because it’s stormy now doesn’t mean you aren’t headed for sunshine.
Our deepest fear is not that we’re inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who are we to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
Don’t think too much. You’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place.
Follow your heart but take your brain with you.
It’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
Don’t let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life.
Life is like photography. We use the negatives to develop.
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
Make it simple yet significant.
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.
Comparison is the thief of joy.
Let your past make you better not bitter.
Don’t let comparison steal your joy.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
At the end of the day, you can focus on what’s tearing you apart or on what’s holding you together.
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not – remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
It isn’t the criticism we receive that brings us down; it’s what we decide that criticism means. It rarely means we’re failures or we should change directions. Sometimes it means there’s more to learn. Sometimes it means you need a thicker skin. Most of the time, it’s both.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
Stress is the trash of modern life – we all generate it but if you don’t dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life.
When something bad happens, you have three choices. You can let it define you, you can let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.
The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it but that it is too low and we reach it.
At first glance, it may appear too hard. Look again. Always look again.
What we are is God’s gift to us. What we become is our gift to God.
Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.
The trick is to enjoy life. Don’t wish away your days waiting for better ones ahead.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of things and still be calm in your heart.
Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change.
You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
You only get anywhere with a positive attitude, and be realistic with yourself.
Manifesto for a simple life: eat less, move more, buy less, make more, stress less, laugh more, feel blessed, love more, find a quiet spot every day and BREATHE.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
Prove them wrong.
Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.
It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up.
The first step to getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.
Food is the most abused anxiety drug. Exercise is the most underutilized antidepressant.
Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
Depression is a flaw in chemistry, not of character.
Fighting your feelings is the most difficult battle ever.
I will hold myself to a standard of grace not perfection.
The pages of yesterday cannot be revised, but the pages of tomorrow are blank and you hold the pen. Make it an inspiring story.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance.
You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
