Don’t be quick to conform to this world and what they perceive as the norm, every day we see images, read and hear words that show us our shortcomings, so don’t you think it is time you begin to make yourself feel better by recognising, understanding and appreciating the good things in you?

Henry Ward Beecher said every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith

The decision lies solely on you,

For years, some people have lived their lives based on what people think about them, letting people’s thoughts and opinions shape their lives and even though they are frustrated living this way, they continue in it,

Most people are other people.  Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation” – Oscar Wilde

What does it take for you to be happy, and why would you sacrifice this happiness for others, the truth is that some people get frustrated with their own lives and yet you would sacrifice your happiness because of these people’s opinions. Take some time to think today about what makes you happy and what makes you laugh, write them down and begin to do them

If you do not, no one else will

A lesson you ought to learn is that everyone else is too busy dealing with his or her own life to make you feel better about yours. It is very easy to get lost in how insane the day is, there are many activities that take our time, and the hours roll into days, days into weeks, weeks into months and months into years until you wake up one day and wonder when you became this old and cranky

E.E Cummings says the most wasted of all days is one without laughter

Take a moment everyday to appreciate your life, to enjoy the beauty around you and to acknowledge at least one good thing in you, it is incredible how simple this sounds but most times, it is one of the most difficult things people can do. Be yourself, everyone else has been taken, do not wish you could be someone else or have a quality someone else has because that person may just be wishing they had the qualities you have, so be the best of you and love you.
