Friend, Life is far too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you.
What’s important isn’t the opinion of someone who knows nothing at all about me. What is far more important is knowing what I’ve achieved through my own efforts. What matters to me is my opinion of myself. In the same way, I won’t be pushed around by the fears made up by my mind, instead I’ll allow myself to be led by the dreams in my heart.
What is fear anyway? Fear is just an acronym for “False Evidence Appearing Real”.
Remember ABC; Afraid is what you feel. Bravery is what you show. Continue regardless is what you do…
Everyone can understand music; it’s the universal language of love and kindness. Every heart beats to the music of the universe.
Bad stuff happens, people are mean, there are no steps we can take that ensure the world leaves us alone. All we can do is try not to be one of those people who contributes to the bad. Good people turn to love, courage and kindness in times of crisis, not hate, fear and cruelty. Kindness carries no price tag nor does it require making a purchase. My friend, a random act of kindness can change a life… choose to be kind always.
Don’t wear the opinions of others, learn to dress yourself. Instead of measuring yourself by your weight or your height, measure yourself by the good and the kind things that you do. Act on your conscience, do the things you believe are the right things to do.
You’re the one who needs to forgive yourself, to accept yourself for who you are. Forgiving yourself, believing in yourself and choosing to love yourself are the best gifts anyone could hope to receive. You are amazing.
In a world full of sadness and travail, kindness is not to be underestimated. You have the change to do a great deal of good, just by showing kindness to those whose path crosses yours. Everyone comes into your life to fulfil a purpose of theirs. So offer them love, kindness, and care.
Before you go to bed think about what you left behind in the wake of the day and give thanks. Be grateful for the gift of a day, for the blessings you received in that day and for the opportunities you’ve been offered. Start the day with a positive thought and a grateful heart.
Peace is not just the absence of violence or war; it’s also the presence of kindness, compassion, love, and care. Remember, everyone you meet is just trying hard to do the best they can. No one woke up today and intentionally decided to be mean, difficult, or unreasonable – including you!
I am deeply in love with our world and its contents, so my heart aches when I witness suffering and sadness, cruelty and vice. I may not be able to leave behind vast wealth or splendour, but I will try to leave behind examples and stories of my love and kindness to inspire others to be caring and spread the message of unconditional kindness.
The most difficult challenge in life is how to be kind, yet strong. To be kind isn’t enough, you need to be strong to give to others, and strong to withstand life’s fluctuating fortunes. Being kind, being compassionate, being respectful doesn’t make you weak. More often, it’s the harder path to take.
Be mindful my friend. Be grateful. Be positive. Be true. Be kind. Remember, no one has ever become poor by giving. The most genuine acts of kindness are done without fanfare and when no one is looking. Good deeds are done because they need to be done, not for reward, for fame or for favours.
I honestly don’t care if someone is black, white, straight, gay, short, tall, loud, quiet, fat, skinny, rich or poor. If they’re nice to me, I’ll be nice to them.
A random act of kindness, no matter how small, can make a tremendous impact on someone else’s life. Do your little bit of good wherever you are; and do it now. All those little bits of good put together will overwhelm the shadows in a sometimes dark world.
My beautiful friend, raise your children to love and embrace others. Always tell them how beautiful they are. They may grow up to be stars one day, and “beautiful” will never mean as much read in a magazine as it will coming from you.
Beauty is everywhere, love is endless, and joy pours from every sunrise and sunset we share. Embrace it. I love all my friends, family, and colleagues. I am ceaselessly grateful from the bottom of my heart for everyone. Remember that every day contains a universe of potential; get out there and exhaust it. Live and love your days so fully that when death comes there is nothing left for him to take. The true measures of wealth are love, music, sports, learning, family and freedom.
