When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. Henri Nouwen
“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”
Gratitude is a key tenet in all major philosophies, religions, and schools of thought. That’s because gratitude is a foundation of positive thinking. We only have a limited amount of focus, so when you are able to be appreciative of what you have, your brain is unable to give life and energy to thoughts about what you don’t have. Seeing events in your life as gifts allow you to perceive how they may help you grow and become a better person, and the application of this attitude during tough times is the hallmark of resilience.

Here’s a life lesson that you would be wise to internalize. If you want to greet the world in a fearless way, if you want to be independent, and be victorious in the quest to achieve your goals and dreams, you have to believe you have what it takes first. It’s easy to think that you can have these things without belief, but it starts with belief and you can’t allow anything to come into your life until you believe it first. Memorize this quote, read it everyday until it becomes a part of you, and you’ll see it unfold in your life.
Guess that everyone occasionally has these days when everything seems irritating and annoying and all one can hear is the phrase: “He/she must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed.” Being enthusiastic about the upcoming working day might not be easy for some people.

13. If you chase anything in life chase the things that get you excited about living. Chase the things that give you hope, happiness and a glimpse of a better life. Chase the things that make you want to be a better person. Chase the things that inspire you to think, create and live joyfully. Chase the things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference. Chase the things that make you want to transform your heart from selfish to selfless. When you chase that kind of storm you are chasing rainbows. ― Shannon L. Alder

They say that some rules are made to be broken, and still others are made to be bent. She’s not saying that you should break the law, but our society has so many rules put in place that if you conform to them all you might have a bland and vanilla time here. Find out which rules are getting in the way of some good clean fun, and test the boundaries. Life isn’t about staying within the lines, it’s about doing what you want without getting in the way of others doing what they want.
The funny thing about pain is that when you feel it, it hurts so bad, but when it’s gone, you can’t remember how it felt. You have an idea that you hurt but not how much. Be grateful that it’s over, that the pain you once felt is no more. And the pain you feel will slowly die out. Be grateful for the pain for it introduced you to a greater joy after it passed.
If you want something all-purpose, nothing works better than tune yourself like the musical instrument with the help of uplifting quotes and sayings about the good morning. Clear your mind from negativity and useless worries. Instead of thinking about important meetings and countless reports, try filling your mind with nice thoughts. Be grateful for another morning light that you can share with your family. Remember that every day brings new opportunities.
Falling down is part of life, but you’re only beaten if you fall down and don’t get back up. As long as you keep getting back up you’re going to eventually reach the goals you set for yourself. Here she’s saying that you don’t want to go down as the girl that fell but didn’t get up, you want to be the girl that got back up and got on with her life and ended up where she wanted to be. It’s nice to know that reaching your goals is not the most important part, just the act of continuing to strive for them and never giving up.

Instead of pondering what the best strategy is to get something done, you just do it. When you focus on getting it done you’ll find ways to get it done better as you’re getting it done. So much time can be wasted on a project or a task just by becoming overwhelmed with the size or the difficulty of it. When you get into the mindset of just doing it, no matter what it involves, you’ll find that the tasks become easier and everything flows.
