“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” – Earl Nightengale
This quote is so true. I find that most of the people I know including myself are always fretting over the little things in life and missing the big picture. How amazing life is! I bet right now, you are probably thinking if I were richer/prettier/more famous/had more friends I would be happy. Well you are not alone. Practically everybody wants something more and thinks that they will never be happy until they get it. … Read the rest
Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it’s time, you’ll know.
- Katy Perry, Fireworks
This quote by Katy Perry is such a hopeful quote of how it is when it seems like all your opportunities have dried up. Maybe you are feeling like you will be single forever, or maybe that you won’t get the job that you want or maybe you just feel like you don’t really know where you are going in life. But Katy Perry is saying that this is only temporary, even though it might not seem like it at the time.… Read the rest
“One of my best moves is to surround myself with friends who, instead of asking, “Why?” are quick to say, “Why not?” That attitude is contagious.” ~Oprah Winfrey
This quote from Oprah is truly inspirational and it is a great way to keep yourself motivated and excited about life. Your friend influence so much of who you are and what you do. It is true! You spend so much time with them, spend time doing new activities, and meet new people through them. If they are really awesome, optimistic and driven, you will automatically be more that way too.
People tend to attract similar types of people for friendship, so if you find your normal group of friends is more pessimistic and not very open minded, before blaming them, maybe look at yourself. … Read the rest
“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together…there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart. I’ll always be with you.”
~ Winnie the Pooh
I love this quote by Winnie the Pooh – it is so sweet! I think everyone wishes they had their own imaginary friend to tell them these things, but it is worth the time to start to tell yourself these things and replace all of the negative self talk (which doesn’t help you in any way) with positive kind talk. Life can be very hard sometimes, and if you are able to be self-soothing and have a positive internal monologue with yourself, you are on the right path!… Read the rest
“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~ Sri Ram
This quote is heavily influenced by the Buddhist tradition of change and not allowing oneself to become attached to or averse to the impermanent. The nature of the universe is change. Everything is constantly changing, every little particle in the universe is changing at every moment. The sun rises, falls. The waves flow in and out, the stars are born, twinkle and die and within each one of us all of the sensations that we feel rise and then pass away. This is the true nature of the universe.… Read the rest
If you have the opportunity to play this game of life you need to appreciate every moment. a lot of people don`t appreciate the moment until it`s passed.
Maybe this song quote explains why Kanye West is always pulling bizarre stunts in public – because he’s afraid that if he doesn’t appreciate the moment by doing something crazy, it could pass him by. But if you take his crazy antics out of the picture, this quote is very true. It is very easy to not appreciate it, and get bogged down in all the responsibilities, and crap life throws your way. But Kanye is right. There are so many opportunities in life to appreciate every moment.
So whatever is happening your life right now. … Read the rest
