    Wow...so many throughout the years 1or 2 of my favorites? hmmm...

    I always liked the line from Forest Gump-

    "Life is like a box of Chocolates...you never know what you are going to get!"



    "When God/Life closes a door a window always appears!"

    "If you`re lucky enough to be different, don`t ever change."

    Hope you like it too! smile

    These are some of my favorites hope they help.

    To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.

    Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.

    The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

    The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.

    Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.

    Henceforth I ask not good fortune. I myself am good fortune.

    Never lose hope.

    Everything you can imagine is real.

    Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.

    In youth we learn; in age we understand.

    Yoda said it best - I realize it is from a movie but really holds true;

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    I learned this from the president of a college....

    Carefully think through something you need to make a decison about; make the decision, and be willing to live with the consequences.

    That has followed me all of my life. It lead me to thoughtfully make decisions rather than to make impulsive ones.

    It does not matter which approach you follow, secular or religious, the goal is to provide support and advice.To inspire others, is important to establish the premise that every person is unique and special. read more

    There have been so many that have had a tremendous impact on my life and on my perception of life, but here are some of the top ones:
    -No expectations, no disappointment.
    -Never stop learning and growing.
    -Focus on what you have and what's right in your life and relationships, not on what's missing and wrong.
    -Being able to love unconditionally starts with yourself.
    -Forgive yourself and others as a gift to yourself; for your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health,.
    -Look for the lesson in every challenge.
    -Find out what you really need and seek to meet those needs.
    -Be grateful often.
    I could keep going...

    Have you ever seen that one video/dvd i think it's called "the secret".  The law of attraction. What ever you think and feel is what you attract to your self. For instance if you are always negative you will attract the negative and if you are positive then positive things and people will come your way. This video inspired me greatly for the good!

    Those who mind don't matter and those who matter wont mind.

    Life's to short to always be concerned about what everyone else is saying or what they will think. Life your life how you see fit and if you can stand by what you do then the previously mentioned statement shoul be your motto!

    I can’t’ remember it exactly, but there’s an old Chinese proverb that says:

    If a person can laugh at his own stupidity, he will always be amused.
    Seems to me a great attitude to adopt.
    Or this one, also Chinese proverb:
    Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
