As we grow up, we realize it is less important to have lots of friends, and more important to have real ones.

Often, it’s not about becoming a new person, but becoming the person you were meant to be, and already are, but don’t know how to be.

I have come to accept the bumpy roads of life; they seem to lead to the best places.

You get angry. You get depressed. You worry. But never let these feelings consume your life. You owe it to yourself not to burden your soul with sorrows. You have to leave the past behind and STRIVE TOWARD HAPPINESS.

Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times, you grow. Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement. Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character. Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.

Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.

You don't have to defend or explain your decisions to anyone. It's your life. Live it without apologies.

Don’t ever put your happiness in someone else’s hands. They’ll drop it. They’ll drop it every time.

Life is about balance. Be kind, but don't let people abuse you. Trust, but don't be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.

The simple secret of happiness. Whatever you are doing, don’t let past move your mind; don’t let future disturb you. Because the past is no more, and the future is not yet. To live in the memories, to live in the imagination, is to live in the non-existential. And when you are living in the non-existential, you are missing that which is existential. Naturally you will be miserable, because you will miss your whole life.

To get over the past, you first have to accept that the past is over. No matter how many times you revisit it, analyze it, regret it, or sweat it…it’s over. It can hurt you no more.

Each day is a gift even if it isn't exactly what we hoped for.

We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.

Just for today, allow yourself to embrace all that you are every moment. Know that you are a vessel of light. Allow yourself to release all doubts about your ability, the mistakes of the past, the fear of the future.

Let the hurt soften you instead of hardening you. Let the hurt open you instead of closing you. Let the hurt lead you to love, and not to hate.

We’re not always going to understand why something happens. True faith is trusting even when it doesn’t make sense.

Know yourself. Be yourself. Love yourself. Seek goodness and be goodness. Seek beauty and be beauty. Seek love and be love.

You're far better off humbly accepting things happen for a reason than trying in vain to change them and wishing for a different ending.

None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.

Pause and remember— The peace you seek begins with you! When you consciously and consistently choose peace in your words and actions, more peace will appear in your life. Stop blaming everything and everyone outside of you. Make peace within your priority.

Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.

Happiness is the ability to move forward, knowing the future will be better than the past.

Life has so many different chapters. One bad chapter doesn't mean it's the end of the book. There are many more good ones coming ahead. Don't give up.

Even though i don't know what tomorrow will bring, i'm going to hold my head high, think positive, and expect the best.

If you love a person, you accept the total person. With all the defects. Because those defects are a part of the person. Never try to change a person you love, because the very effort to change says that you love half, and the other half of the person is not accepted. When you love, you simply love.

People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don't think that's true. Being surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest thing in the world.

A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.

Sometimes in life, a fog sets in and you don’t know which way is the right direction. Every voice may tell you it’s not going to happen, but God has placed a promise in your heart. Refuse to listen to those voices. Keep believing.

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once; seize them. Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Live your dream, and wear your passion. Life is short.

If someone has offended you, insulted you, or disappointed you, let it go! If you are remembering all the ways you have been hurt or forgotten, let it go! Ask yourself, what good does it do for me to hold on to this?

Sometimes you just have to stop worrying, wondering and doubting. Have faith that things will work out may be not how you planned, but just how they’re meant to be.

You can't live a positive life with a negative mind.

Do not judge others by your own standards, for everyone is making their way home, in the way they know best.

Stop worrying about what can go wrong, and get excited about what can go right.

Be a witness not a judge. Focus on yourself, not on others. Listen to your heart, not to the crowd.

It’s better to look back on life an say “I can’t believe I did that...” than to look back and say “I wish I did that..."

Never blame another person for your personal choices — you are still the one who must live out the consequences of your choices.

Pause and remember— It is never too late to begin again, to forgive someone, to have a dream, to meet someone or to start love yourself. It is never too late.

Be defined by YOUR ideas, YOUR heart, YOUR light...not by the negativity or judgement of others.

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

In my life, I've lived, I've loved, I've lost, I've missed, I've hurt, I've trusted, I've made mistakes, but most of all, I've learned.

"Sometimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth and value, but because we finally realize our own."

When it seems that everything you do is wrong and everyone is against you--it is the most opportune time to wear your "I-don't-give-a-damn" tutu and glide gleefully in the dance floor of "this is me and my life".

Each day, focus your attention on what you want. Each day, take one step that will bring you closer to it. ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! The key is to identify it, claim it for yourself, and believe that you are worthy to have it.

Dear God, Please teach me to forgive myself and others. Remove the walls that keep love out, behind which I am a prisoner. Heal my guilt and remove my anger, that I might be reborn. Make gentle my heart and strong my spirit and show me how to love. Please show me how to honor myself. Please teach me how to listen to myself. Please program my mind to know itself, that I might at last be free. Teach me to appreciate your spirit that lives within me. Amen

Do not underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It's our differences that make us unique and beautiful.

You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it's enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never give up.

Isn't it amazing how God brings the right people into your life at the right time. People who support, love and pray for you, regardless of your circumstances.

Stop worrying about all the reasons why something may not work, and star thinking about all the reasons why it might.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.
