I want to go on a road trip someday. Alone or with someone I love. I want to get away. Explore places. Sleep in the car. Stop a lot just to admire the view. Visit museums and try out coffee shops. Listen to my favorite albums while driving. Have a Polaroid camera. Take pretty pictures of the sunrise. Take pictures of myself. Run through a forest. Chase fog. Chase the sun. Spend hours on a field making flower crowns. Feel the wind in my hair. Buy souvenirs. Meet people. Take time to observe. I want to make memories. I want to feel alive.

No matter what you do, someone won’t be pleased. Someone will think your choices are wrong. And someone will tell you what should do instead. No matter which path you take, someone will seem to be doing better. Someone will have more than you. And someone else’s life may look more impressive on paper. If you’re being true to yourself, none of that will matter because you’ll have something more satisfying than approval and the illusion of “success”: a life that feels right for you, based on your own wants, needs, values, and priorities.

I’ve come to trust not that events will always unfold exactly as I want, but that I will be fine either way. The challenges we face in life are always lessons that serve our soul’s growth.

When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the right things a chance to catch you.

Don’t make assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

I may not have everything I want in life but I am blessed enough to have all that I need. For this I am grateful.

The earlier you learn that you should focus on what you have, and not obsess about what you don’t have, the happier you will be.

You will never ‘find’ time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.

Suffering usually relates to wanting things to be different than they are.

In today’s rush, we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just being.

Happiness is not having what you want. It is appreciating what you have.

There’s no such thing as being too busy. If you really want something, you’ll make time for it.

Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.

Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.

If you want to feel rich, just count the things you have that money can’t buy.

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

Prosperity depends more on wanting what you have than having what you want.

Stress is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there’.
