A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset.
When you wake up take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy.
The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you that it will start to feel like one.
Time spent living is time worth appreciating.

Be nice to everyone
always smile
and appreciate things
because it could all be gone tomorrow.
– E. Sheeran

As we arise each morning, lets determine to respond with love and kindness to whatever may come our way.
– Thomas Monsom

When life gets blurry – adjust your focus.

God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself,
because there is no such thing.
– C.S. Lewis

Never apoligize for having high standards.
People who really want to be in your life will rise up to meet them.

God
is the reason why,
even in pain, I smile;
in confusion, I understand;
in betrayal, I trust;
and in fear, I continue to fight.

She stood in the storm
and when the wind did not blow her way,
she adjusted her sails.
– Elizabeth Edwards

A best friend won’t agree with you to make you happy.
If anything, they’ll say what needs to be said,
no matter if you want to hear it or not.

Use what talent you possess:
the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.
H. Van Dyke
Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside.

The pursuit of happiness need not remain a mystery.  Ernest Hemming way once stated that “Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa
