Why worry about things you can’t control when you can keep yourself busy controlling the things that depend on you?

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Worry less, smile more. Don’t regret, just learn and grow.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present. 

Don’t make a permanent decision for your temporary emotion.

Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.

I’m stronger because of the hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, and happier because I have known sadness.

Three things you cannot recover in life: the word after it’s said, the moment after it’s missed, and the time after it’s gone.

Stop focusing on how stressed you are and remember how blessed you are. It could be so much worse.

When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.

Worry does nothing but steal your joy and keep you very busy doing nothing.

It is wise to direct your anger toward problems; not people. To focus your energies on answers; not excuses.

Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

Happy are they who take life day by day, complain very little, and are thankful for the little things in life.

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

Think of all the beauty that is still left in and around you and be happy.

If you find yourself constantly trying to prove your worth to someone, you have already forgotten your value.

The past exists only in our memories, the future only in our plans. The present is our only reality.
