Lot's of good thoughts . . . . .

Okay so my friend Heather has been posting some amazing quotes and I just had to put them somewhere so I could go back and refer to them. There just might be something here that might catch your eye or tug at a heart string. Feel free to grab it if you want and use it to empower your life.

"This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy." -Susan Polis Schutz

"Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out." - John Wooden

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." -Melody Beattie

"Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before." -James Buckham

"You can't be brave if you've only had wonderful things happen to you." - Mary Tyler Moore

"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost." -Dalai Lama

"Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." -Groucho Marx

"Learn to get in touch with silence within yourself, and know that everything in this life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from." -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

"Appreciation is a powerful tool to shift perspective. Finding something to appreciate during a difficult situation quickly moves the perspective to the big picture from the little picture." -Doc Childre

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.”

"If you observe a really happy man you will find him building a boat, writing a symphony, educating his son or growing double dahlias in his garden...He will not be searching for happiness as if it were a collar button that has rolled under the radiator....He will have become aware that he is happy in the course of liv...ing life twenty-four crowded hours of the day." ~W. Beran Wolfe

Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants y...ou to be different." -Stacey Charter

"There is often those rare friends in the life of each of us who seem not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but expansions, interpretations, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~Edith Wharton

“God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.” -Unknown-

“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.” -Gloria Naylor-

"He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying." -Friedrich Nietzsche

"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside." -Wayne Dyer

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier." -Mother Teresa

"Intense love does not measure, it just gives." -Mother Teresa

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." -Buddha

"One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself." -Unknown

"He who has a WHY to live can bear almost any HOW." -Friedrich Nietzsche
