You’ve lived so long, you’ve come so far. You made it despite heartbreaks and pain, though disappointment and failure. Yet here you are, alive, motivated and rearing to go. Remember to be grateful to whatever is giving you the will to drag yourself out of bed and face the world. Be it your motivation, your goals, your God, whatever, be grateful for the courage.
Your bag, your clothes, your couch, your table, everything that’s yours has a story. Even if it’s boring, it’s a story. When you got it, why you got it, how you got it, when you used it, every little detail works its way to make your life more complete. Each story captures a moment in your life that will never come back. Be grateful for those moments hidden in your belongings.
Only Mother Teresa has the credibility to talk about the small things that lead to great things in our lives. She was the perfect model for doing small things with great love. It’s always nice when the speaker of a quote is also a shining example for what she is saying. What small things will you do today with great love? It is the culmination of these small things done with great love that become something great, and instead of focusing on the bigger picture you have to focus on doing those small things in a loving way.

If you want to have power, it’s yours for the taking but you actually have to grab it, it won’t be handed to you. This is a quote that can come in handy if you’re thinking that you will breeze through life and have things given to you without any effort. Taking the power may not be an easy task, which is why so many people never get any, but that just makes it that much more worthwhile. With power you’re able to have more influence over the world around you, and you’ll have an easier time getting what you want.
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.
Just before they go to sleep, many people have this habit of thinking how their day went, what was important after all, and what they should remember on the following day. Then, when the next day begins, what we have found out about our lives  is related to eternal human values: kindness matters, the beauty of all living things is a compass showing towards happiness, and a positive view is essential to a better life.
Best friends send a “check in-text” to see if you need an excuse to end your date early.  They show up with seven-up and movies when you are sick, and they don’t give up shopping until you have found the perfect wedding dress.  True friends hang out after your party and help you clean up and do the dishes.  They show up with meals after your baby is born, and they offer to take your toddler to the park when they know you need a break.
