Things to live by:
Free yourself from Negative people
Let go of those who are already gone
Give people you do not know a fair chance
Show everyone kindness and respect
Accept people just the way they are
Encourage others and cheer for them
Be your imperfectly perfect self
Forgive people and move forward
Do little things every day for others
Always be loyal
Stay in better touch with people who matter to you
Keep your promises and tell the truth
Give what you want to receive
Say what you mean and mean what you say
Allow others to make their own decisions
Talk a little less, and listen more
Leave petty arguments alone
Pay attention to your relationship with yourself
Pay attention to who your real friends are
Ignore unconstructive, hurtful commentary
I LOVE quotes. Here are a few: ( the list keeps getting longer)
Once upon a time there was a person who said they would love you forever. Their love moved on but your love stayed in the same place. Consider the opportunity to love the greatest of all blessings even when love doesnt go your way. The love you give is the love you get and it is all good no matter where love takes you....
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others
"Fall in love or fall in hate.
Get inspired or be depressed.
Ace a test of flunk a class.
Make babies or make art.
Speak the truth or lie and cheat.
Dance on tables or sit in the corner.
Life is divine chaos. Embrace it.
Forgive yourself. Breath.
And enjoy the ride..."
"Let those love now who've never loved; let those who've loved, love yet again" --- Fowles
“I carried inside me a cut and bleeding soul, and how to get rid of it I just didn’t know. I sought every pleasure – the countryside, sports, fooling around, the peace of a garden, friends and good company, sex, reading. My soul floundered in the void – and came back upon me. For where could my heart flee from my heart? Where could I escape from myself?”
--– St. Augustine, Confessions
“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.”
--- Mary Anne Radmacher
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
"This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes... rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you are in doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life."
"That was a memorable day for me, for it made great changes in me.
but it is the same way with any life. Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns and flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day."
"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, Begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it."
"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your piece of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press onto the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!"
---Christian D. Larson
"Let go of your attachment to being right, and suddenly your mind is more open. You're able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others, without being crippled by your own judgment."
--- Ralph Marston
"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have."
--- Fredrick Koeing
“People have to face regrets. Becoming mature means learning to accept what you cannot change, facing unresolved sorrows and learning to love life as it really happens, not as you would have it happen. When someone attaches unkindness to criticism, she's angry. Angry people need to criticize as an outlet for their anger. That's why you must reject unkind criticism. Unkind criticism is never part of a meaningful critique of you. Its purpose is not to teach or to help, its purpose is to punish. Life isn't supposed to be an all or nothing battle between misery and bliss. Life isn't supposed to be a battle at all. And when it comes to happiness, well, sometimes life is just okay, sometimes it's comfortable, sometimes wonderful, sometimes boring, sometimes unpleasant. When your day's not perfect, it's not a failure or a terrible loss. It's just another day.”
--- Barbara Sher
"Do unto other 20% better than you would expect them to do unto you, to correct for subjective error."
