    Life Is What You Make Out Of It

    Life Is Too Short, Break The Rules, Forgive Quickly, Kiss Slowly, Love Truly, Laugh Uncontrollably, And Never Regret Anything That Made You Smile. Life May Not Be The Party We Hoped For, But While We're Here, We Should Dance...

    I appreciate the smile someone gives you

    who you don't know you as they walk by. Or seeing two little old people holding hands. The way kids laugh and have no worries. The smell of the air after a good rain. The conversation with a stranger, who can brighten up your day and they don't even know it. Stopping and slowing...

    If you ever feel sad,

    depressed, like you can't take it anymore, go for a 5 mile run. Drink 2 bottles of water before. While you run, you will release stress hormones and start regaining happiness.. the water is just to keep you hydrated. also remember that if you have a goal, a dream, you can...

    A Flower, A Rainbow, A Butterfly

    Sometimes in the hustle

    and bussle of everyday life we lose touch of what's really important. With that in mind here is a quote from Martin Luther king ( Life's most persistent and urgent question is. "What are you doing for others?"). Let's all take some time today, and help a neighbors in need!

    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you

    from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or...

    Little Things In Life

    There's a tiny plant with what looks to be a small flower growing out of the crack in the concrete. If that isn't a metaphor or inspiration for "keep going" then I don't know what is. Something that small let me know there's a bigger picture at work here. Even the smallest...

    An insignificant flower.

    A colourful stone. Shadows. Reflections. Small gestures are better than fancy ones. I'd rather join someone for a bowl of chilli than come to a roast beef dinner with all the fuss.

    In life we do things.

    Some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are. And in the end they shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them we wouldn't be the person we are. So just live. Make mistakes. Have...
