Make the most of the best and the best of the worst, and keep your standards high. Never settle for anything less than you deserve or are capable of achieving. You were born with potential, with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals, with greatness and dreams. You’re not built for crawling, so don’t. You have wings, so learn to use them and fly.I know it’s not easy for you, there are always stormy moments in this life, but try to remember you’re not the only one with troubles. There’s no need to wait for the storms and troubles to be over. Change now. Love now. Live now. Don’t wait for people to give you permission to live, because they only have themselves on their minds. Understand that dark times will hone and strengthen you. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. You come out stronger, wiser and more capable. That’s what storms are all about.What other people think and say about you is not your concern. They have no idea of who you are and what you’ve been through. The most destructive thing you can ever do is to believe someone else’s opinion of you.
Learning to distance yourself from the negativity that surrounds and feeds on us is one of the greatest lessons to achieve inner peace. Find a little positivity and nurture it. Pass your positivity forward and help it grow. Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect, it means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections and accept what you know to be true.
Home isn’t a set house, or a single town on a map. It’s wherever the people who love you are, whenever you’re together. Not a place, but one moment and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you’ll take with you your entire life, wherever you may go.
Life can be painful and messed up. It gets complicated at the worst of times and sometimes you have no idea where to go or what to do. Lots of times people just let themselves get lost, dropping into a wide open, huge abyss. That, my friend, is why you have to keep trying. You have to push through everything that hurts, work past all those memories that haunt you. Sometimes the thing that hurts you the most are the things that make you the strongest.
A life without experience is no life at all, so that’s why I urge everyone that, even when it hurts, never stop yourself from living.
There is no such thing as a random act… We’re all connected. You can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind. Every day brings new opportunities, allows you to constantly live with love, to be there for others and to bring a little light into someone’s day. You’ve been gifted this life, be grateful and live each day to the fullest.Everyone, regardless of their power and fame, shares this journey through life. Never allow yourself to be intimidated by others. Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something. If you’ve never eaten while crying you can’t know what life tastes like. I don’t believe that life is supposed to make you feel good, or to make you feel miserable either. Life is just supposed to make you feel. You are in charge of your own happiness; you don’t need to wait for other people’s permission to be happy. Life is so like a book: what matters is not how long it is, but how good it is. I wish you a very good life.
Face your life, my friend. Face the pain, the pleasure. Face loneliness and friendship. Be happy and be sad, leave no path untaken. Listen to the people who love you. You are condemned to be free; because having been thrown into this world, you’re responsible for everything you do. It’s up to you to give your life meaning.People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when dark times set in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is brightness and light within. To shine this light is to be who you truly are. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my life it’s not to be afraid of the responsibility that comes with caring for other people. What we do for love: those things endure. Even if the people we do them for don’t. The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. I’ve found out that the whole point, the only point, is to find the things that matter, and hold on to them, and fight for them, and refuse to let them go.
There were people who went to sleep last night. Black or White, Rich or Poor, Christian or Atheist, it doesn’t matter what their beliefs or circumstances were, they will never wake again. The deceased would give anything for just five more minutes of this weather, five more minutes to tell their loved ones how much they are loved, five more minutes in their work place. So stop complaining. You can do all of these things. Instead of complaining, when you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
You must never behave as if your life belongs to someone else. Your life belongs to you and to you alone. I used to think the worst thing in life is to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.
Don’t wait for the right moment to start, start and make each moment right. Make yourself a promise today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You. Be Free. Share and above all Care.
Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart. You mustn’t lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, that doesn’t mean the whole ocean is spoiled. We learn, as we get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologise for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less travelled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though everyone is watching. March to the beat of your own drum and stubbornly refuse to fit in.
Stop comparing yourself to other people, just choose to be happy and live your own life. Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to be happy, and your joy and you will form an invincible host against dark times. Let the improvement of yourself keep you so busy that you have no time to criticise others. If you believe very strongly in something, stand up and fight for it. When you care, when you do the best you can, you’ll never know what miracle is wrought in your life, or in the life of others.
