Be yourself, because an original is worth more than a copy.

The minute you thing of giving up, think of the reason why you held on so long.

Abandon the idea that you will forever be the victim of the things that have happened to you. Choose to be a victor.

You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.

We all have two lives. The second one starts when we realize that we only have one.

Remember, you can’t reach what’s in front of you until you let go of what’s behind you.

Happiness means loving yourself and being less concerned with the approval of others.

Believing in our hearts that who we are is enough is the key to a more satisfying and balanced life.

Forgiving someone doesn’t mean condoning their behavior. It doesn’t mean forgetting how they hurt you or giving that person room to hurt you again. Forgiving someone means making peace with what happened. It means acknowledging your wound, giving yourself permission to feel the pain, and recognizing why that pain no longer serves you. It means letting go of the hurt and resentment so that you can heal and move on.

You’ll never know who you are unless you shed who you pretend to be.

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.

Love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.

Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

Happiness equals reality minus expectations.

Feelings are like waves. You cannot stop them from coming but you can decide which ones to surf.

At some point you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart, but not in your life.

The greatest potential we have for opening our hearts lies in the opening of our minds.

Don’t hide yourself. Stand up, keep your head high, and show them what you got!

Just like children, emotions heal when they are heard and validated.

The only way to have a friend is to be one.
