I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't.
And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently.
Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.
Don't be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.
Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.
We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don't even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us to let ourselves be loved.
Take responsibility of your own happiness, never put it in other people’s hands.
No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those memories.
Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people.
Do what is right, not what is easy nor what is popular.
Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.
Though nobody can go back and make a new beginning... Anyone can start over and make a new ending.
Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.
The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.
Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.
Make improvements, not excuses. Seek respect, not attention.
Pursue what catches your heart, not what catches your eyes.
The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.
Life is about accepting the challenges along the way, choosing to keep moving forward, and savoring the journey.
