HappinessYou will only find the happiness you seek when you drop your negative attitude towards life, embrace life and be happy.
HappinessYou can search high & low to find happiness on earth, yet unless you love yourself, you will never find your true belonging.
It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you, if you allow it.
Never underestimate your own strength. You were born for a purpose and are blessed with the power to achieve it.
A moment of anger can destroy a lifetime of work, whereas a moment of love can break barriers that took a lifetime to build.
The answers you seek never come when the mind is busy, they come when the mind is still, when silence speaks loudest.
One day you will realize that material things mean nothing. All that matters is the well being of the people in your life.
Listen to your own voice, your own soul. Too many people listen to the noise of the world, instead of themselves.
It all begins with you. If you do not take care of yourself, you will not be strong enough to take care of anything in life.
You cannot grow unless you are willing to change. You will never improve yourself if you cling to what used to be.
All things pass and pain is temporary. It comes to teach a lesson and when the lesson is understood it disappears into the night.
Your life is a product of your thoughts, what you think about all day becomes the basis of your life.
Do not rush, for God's secret is patience. Everything that is meant to be, will come at the designated time.
For every positive change you make in your life, something else also changes for the better - it creates a chain reaction.
People will let you down in this life, promises will be broken, you should expect less of others and trust more in yourself.
You cannot travel back in time to fix your mistakes, but you can learn from them and forgive yourself for not knowing better.
He who can turn negative situations into something positive, has learned the law of transformation, his mind empowers life.
You can let hate, animosity and anger eat away at you, or you can let it go and begin again.
Stop expecting others to act first, be the one who makes a positive change.
The day you stop worrying will be the first day of your new life; anxiety takes you in circles, trust in yourself and become free.
No one is perfect in this world. Forgive people for not knowing better and learn to move on.
Leave people to their opinions and judgements. They cannot harm you; it is their understanding that is faulty, not yours.
You will understand why when you look back, the answers are rarely given in the middle of the lesson.
Listen to yourself, not the noise of the world. Only you know what is right for you.
God gave you a heart to love with, not to hate with, God gave you the ability to create Heaven on earth, not Hell.
Do not worry about the past or the future. This moment needs your attention, for this is where your life exists.
Do not allow negative experiences to make you bitter. They should make you wiser, and with that wisdom you shall find joy.
Every day you must unlearn the ways that hold you back. You must rid yourself of negativity, so you can learn to fly.
Understand that you own nothing. Everything that surrounds you is temporary. Only the love in your heart will last forever.
Life is precious, do not waste it doing anything that your heart does not respect or agree with.
You must let life flow naturally, for life’s secret is patience; you must stop pushing for change and allow things to unfold.
If you tell yourself something often enough you will start to believe it, that is why you must make self love your mantra.
Let people do what they need to do to make them happy. Mind your own business, and do what you need to do to make you happy.
You will fall many times in life, but you will pick yourself up and become stronger and wiser for each trouble you pass.
Never doubt what comes from the heart, your feelings know you better than anything else.
Sometimes you have to experience the bad, so that you can learn to appreciate the good things that enter your life.
Not everything will go as you expect in your life. This is why you need to drop expectations, and go with the flow of life.
When nothing makes sense and the world seems upside down, listen to your heart, it will never lie about your true feelings.
Find something good within your life and give every ounce of positivity you have towards it, then watch how your life changes.
Hatred is toxic to you and those around you. The condition should be treated with understanding and love until it is healed.
Respect yourself and others will follow suit. Most people will not treat you any better than you treat yourself.
Do not judge others by your own standards, for everyone is making their way home, in the way they know best.
Life does not always give you what you want, but if you look closely you will see that it gives what you need for growth.
When you have walked through the hell of your negative thoughts and survived, no pain on this earth will ever again worry you.
Never give up hope. Situations can change over night, problems can dissolve in the light of a new day's sun.
If you never tasted a bad apple, you would not appreciate a good apple. You have to experience life to understand life.
Life is a daily cleansing. Negativity must be washed away, if you wish to attract positive experiences to your life.
When you judge someone on their appearance or first words, you miss the opportunity to understand another human being.
Nothing goes to waste on the journey of life. Both good and bad experiences shape your mind and heart for what is to come.
The more you try to control something, the more it controls you. Free yourself, and let things take their own natural course.
You must channel your energy towards what you love, for what you love is the foundation of your life.
You cannot expect miracles to happen overnight, be patient, be loving and little by little the change you seek will come.
It will all work out in the end. You must keep faith in yourself, and leave the rest to God.
The pain will not go away by getting angry or bitter, it will go away when you learn to accept life's challenges with grace and ease
Sometimes we have to lose our way to find out what we really want, for we often ignore our needs until we are lost.
When the world makes no sense, go inside yourself, and listen carefully to your needs, until you understand once more.
Before you look to blame another, look within yourself, for at some point you have not listened to your own instincts.
Mistakes are the stepping stones to wisdom, we learn from trial & error, we become wise by understanding problems.
Life is taking you somewhere, listen to the messages, they will repeat until you follow their call.
Take a good look at yourself before you criticise another, for what you see wrong in them, will also be a lesson for you.
Be patient. Life will offer you another chance as soon as you find calm within, for abundance is born out of calmness.
Healing is not an overnight process; it is a daily cleansing of pain, it is a daily healing of your life.
If the past is not resolved, future relationships will suffer. Let your heart heal, before you open the door to another.
When the storm has passed, put your energy into rebuilding your life, don't waste time looking back.
By letting go, you allow everything to find it's rightful place. Once free, everything finds its way home.
There is no need for revenge. Living happily ever after is a sign that you have not let the past beat you.
If you can imagine it, you can create it. That beautiful world you dream about, needs positive action to come true.
Tomorrow is a new beginning. Embrace the light of a new day, for you have a fresh chance to begin again, to make life beautiful.
One day you will realise that for your life to change for the better, you must first change for the better.
Do not get angry because others question what you believe, be calm and loving, for anger is the root of a faulty belief.
You are inferior to no one. others may treat you that way, but that is their problem. You are above all of this.
