I Choose Happiness

Each choice we make causes a ripple effect in our lives.
When things happen to us, it is the reaction we choose that can create the difference between the sorrows of our past and the joy in our future.

Be the Change

The most powerful thing you can do to change the world is to change your own beliefs about the nature of life, people, and reality to something more positive ... and begin to act accordingly.

You are Priceless

You are a thoroughly good person.
You are honest, decent, truthful, and hardworking.
You treat other people with courtesy, respect, and warmth.
You are strong, confident, and responsible.
You are dedicated to your family, friends, and company.
You were born for a special reason, and you have a great destiny to fulfill.
Don't let anyone lower your value.
You are priceless..

3 Things

Don’t let yourself be controlled by these three things:
your past,
and money.

Always be Yourself

Living a life in the effort to please everyone else will only give you a life in which you live as a coward and die a thousand deaths.
Instead of living this harsh reality, be valiant, act as yourself, and you will only die once.

Remember that we all carry around who we are when we commit to certain actions each day.

When you commit to make actions on a continual basis that in your heart you doubt that you really want to make on the inside, then more than likely you aren't truly living life as who you really are on the inside.

Being yourself is being willing to tell yourself yes, when everyone else says no.

Remember that the truth will always remain the truth, and a lie can only last for so long, make sure that your legacy will endure forever by thinking, and acting as yourself.

You Are Prettiest When You Are Happy

When you are able to truly be happy, you allow for the light that is inside of you to truly be shone to the whole world.
What is keeping you from happiness?
Are you able to use the creativity inside of you as each day passes?
Are you being held back by the fear of being uncertain about where your life will go, if you take off the devices that are only allowing you to float along?

Every single last one of us has greatness inside.

Only a few are willing to go after the dreams of their heart, and are able to accomplish the things in life that they desire to accomplish because being courageous enough to fight against your fear is a very difficult thing to do.

Break the shackles of fear today!

Take time to live as yourself, and make an effort each day to get to where you have always dreamed to go.
Be happy!

Challenges come so we can grow and be prepared for things we are not equipped to handle now.
When we face our challenges with faith, prepared to learn, willing to make changes, and if necessary, to let go, we are demanding our power be turned on.

What I Feel For You

Beautiful People

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths.

These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern.

Beautiful people do not just happen.

Live Laugh Love

Next time you're stressed:
Take a step back, inhale and laugh.
Remember who you are and why you're here.
You're never given anything in this world that you can't handle.
Be strong, be flexible, love yourself, and love others.
Always remember, just keep moving forward.

The Day Your Life Really Begins

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own.
No apologies or excuses.
No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.
The gift is yours, it is an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.
This is the day your life really begins.

Life ..... a Journey Worth Taking!

Life Comes with no Guarantees

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down, probably will.
You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others' hearts.
You'll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you'll cry because time is flying by.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you've never been hurt.
Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances.
You just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts.
Don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.

How do You Measure Your Value or Self Worth

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill.
In the room of 200 people, he asked, Who would like this $20 bill?
Hands started going up.

He said, I'm going to give this $20 to one of you, but first let me do this.

He proceeded to crumple up the $20 bill.
He then asked, Who still wants it?
Still the hands went up in the air.

Well, he replied, what if I do this? and he dropped the bill on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.

He picked it up, crumpled and dirty.

Now who still wants it?

And the hands still went up in the air.
My friends, he said, we have learned a valuable lesson.
No matter what I do to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.
It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by circumstances that come into our way.

We feel as though we are worthless.
But no matter what has happened or will happen, YOU WILL NEVER LOSE YOUR VALUE. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you.

The value of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but WHO WE ARE.

More Than Enough

Happy Thankful People

Moving Forward with Your Life

You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
When you work too hard to hang on to what you have right now, and what you had in the past, you limit your future immensely.
Simply stated, if you go out and try to drive your car today, by only staring in the rearview mirror the only thing that you will be able to do without wrecking, is pull out of your parking space?

Is this where you are in life?

Are you stuck in a parking lot, a purgatory of sorts, a place where you havent seen much growth?

If so, it is time for you to make some great decisions for your life, and take gargantuan steps so that the next chapter of your life can actually start.

Turn the page today.
There are only two things we can do, live to our greatest ability in each day, and feel alive, or feel stagnant, and unfulfilled each day while we slowly die.
Its up to you!

God only puts us Through as much as we can Handle

Did you know that God will never put more on you than you can handle?

God never explains why certain horrendous things in life are able to happen, but he does let us know in his word that he will always be there for us when we need him to be.

The things that you are going through in your present situation are only temporary problems, and are nothing more than emotional and spiritual exercise to build your faith muscles for life later down the line.

If you choose to remain faithful to God and his promises, he will put his faith in you, which will allow for the supernatural to take place in your life.

So the next time life happens, and you look for someone to blame, including God, think twice.

Remember that being strong in the Lord means being faithful, even in the most difficult of times

God only puts us through as much as we can handle, so the people who struggle the most, have been chosen by God to be the strongest ones.

Actions Speak Louder than Words

Actions speak louder than words. We can apologise over and over, but if our actions don't change, the words become meaningless.

As we surf this wave of life, we have to remember that just speaking what we should or shouldn't speak won't necessarily get us anywhere.
What we do greatly affects what our ultimate destiny will become, and what we do also helps to paint a picture of who we really are.

Don't just say what you want to mean, really mean what you say by acting in the manner that you speak of.
Commit to acting upon the person that you say that you are or who you want to be.
If you love someone, and tell someone that you love them, be sure to act like it.
Show them you love them.
Show them that you will be there for them in their times of need.
Do the small things that show you care, even in moments that are inconvenient for you to do so.

Act with a persistent conviction if you ever want to be where you really want to be.
If you want to be in someone's life forever, work hard every day at maintaining that relationship, because without action, what you say or desire by itself just isn't sufficient enough to help achieve what you really want.

Take what you Need

Choose you Life Wisely

Before you speak, listen.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you write, think.
Before you quit, try.
Before you act on what your mind tells you to do, you have to instead think with your heart.

A lot of us know people who interpret each situation with a hardcore negative view, and from these seemingly negative views, comes their response.
A lot of us know or are the type of people to react before even thinking, and a lot of us are guilty of acting before even checking our hearts versus our minds for the best possible plan of action.

Instead of speaking first, we have to listen.

Before we criticize people, we must first wait.

Sometimes if we are just peaceful, and if we show people that they have someone to confide in, after a period of time, they will respect us so much that they will value our opinions at a much higher level.
Not everything was built in one day, life requires patience, and understanding.
Being too impulsive can lead you to make bad decisions, choose your life wisely.

Your Choice Your Consequence

work for cause not for applause
live life to express not to impress
don’t strive to make your presence notice, just make your absence felt

You are the Love of my Life

Good Life

A good life is when you smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are for what you have.

How many of us are truly living the good life?

Just because on the outside it seems that you have it all, doesn't ever necessarily mean that you really do at heart.
Do you protect your dreams by keeping them with you?
At the end of each day do you feel satisfied with the effort that you put forth, and do you have joy because you know that no matter what, God has your back?

Do you laugh a lot? Do you smile, so that you cannot only feel better about yourself, but so that you may be able to help others see light in such a dark world.

Is your life a good life?

If it isn't right now, it definitely can be!
Don't look back on your life years down the line, and be upset with yourself for not making the changes that you could have to really be happy.

Live the good life now, and dont let anything stop you from doing so!
