Life is strange. At one moment, it might seem tough, unfair, and if it just can’t get any worse while at other times, we are happy, joyful, or plain delighted with the good things in life.
I decided that it would be a great idea to collect some thoughts and ideas from other people that will encourage and uplift our minds and souls every day. The power of positive thinking is a tremendous asset to have. When we will feel good about ourselves there are many, many ways in which we benefit from these optimistic thought patterns and habits…less stress, lower blood pressure, we are happier, kinder to other people…just to name a few.
So, as you read some of the following thoughts, I hope that you may find comfort in them and that they will help and guide you on your path and you continue your journey through life.
We often forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but of deeply appreciating what we do have.
The story of your life has many chapters. One bad chapter doesn’t mean it’s the end of the book. Just turn the page.
You’ll never be able to see the great things in front of you, if you only look at the bad things behind you.
A big smile is the lighting system of the face, the cooling system of the mind, and the heating system of the heart.
We don’t stop dreaming and exploring because we grow old. We grow old because we stop dreaming and exploring.
When the right things aren’t adding up in your life, start subtracting the wrong things.
Surround yourself with positive people who will support you when it rains, not just when it shines.
Don’t make too much time for people who rarely make time for you.
The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success.
We spend money that we do not have, on things we do not need, to impress people who do not care.
Friends who believe in you when others doubt you, friends who tell you can do it when you doubt yourself… these friends are a gift.
Life is too short to worry about needless issues. Have fun, live through love, explore, regret nothing, and don’t let others bring you down.
Remember, people who try to bring you down are already below you.
Enjoy the little things in life for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.
You may not have everything that you want in life but you are blessed enough to have all that you need.
Never lose hope, because as night falls, a new day is about to dawn and you never know what a new day will bring.
Having a thousand credentials on the wall will not make you a decent human being…but genuinely helping one person everyday will.
If you’re smiling right now, you’re doing something right.
