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.

Don’t call it uncertainty—call it wonder. Don’t call it insecurity—call it freedom.

If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.

Be proud of who you are and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.

Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.

Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.

Humbleness, forgiveness, clarity and love are the dynamics of freedom. They are the foundations of authentic power.

Life is about trusting your feelings and taking chances, losing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories, learning from the past, and realizing people change.

Do not regret growing older. It’s a privilege denied to many.

At any given moment, you have the power to say: This is not how the story is going to end.

Our vision is more obstructed by what we think we know than by our lack of knowledge.

Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots.

Never let your memories be greater than your dreams.

View your life with kindsight. Stop beating yourself up about things from your past. Instead of slapping your forehead and asking, ‘What was I thinking,’ breathe and ask yourself the kinder question, ‘What was I learning?’

Feelings are just visitors. Let them come and go.

Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.

No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together.

What you think of yourself is much more important than what other people think of you.
