    We have all experienced times

    when our focus is on what we lack rather than on our blessings. Said the Greek philosopher Epictetus, "He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has." Thomas S Monson

    “Brother, stand the pain.

    Escape the poison of your impulses. The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do. Learn to light the candle. Rise with the sun. Turn away from the cave of your sleeping. That way a thorn expands to a rose.” — Rumi

    "You say you love rain,

    but you use an umbrella to walk under it. You say you love sun, but you seek shade when it is shining. You say you love wind, but when it comes you close your window. So that's why I'm scared when you say you love me." - Bob Marley

    I received this from someone close to me today

    and had to share it: "The hardest part of walking away is accepting that your love isn't enough to inspire change. One day you realize you were fighting to love someone more than you fought to love yourself." ---- Sarah Jakes (Amen to that....)

    LIFE is too SHORT to wake up in the MORNING

    with regrets.. So LOVE the people who treat you RIGHT and forget about the ones who don't and BELIEVE that everything happens for a REASON.. If you get a CHANCE, take it, if it CHANGES your life, LET it. NOBODY said that it would be EASY they just promised it would be WORTH it...

    When nobody else celebrates you,

    learn to celebrate yourself.When nobody else compliments you,then compliment yourself.It's not up to other people to keep you encouraged,it's up to you. Encouragement should come from inside.

    To me, Good quotes usually come from old

    nineteenth century writers and philosophers. Because they are a different language, an elegant language that we try to understand. And they can mean a number of things. It depends on how you see the world at that moment.
