Happy New Year 2014!
Make it an ORRsome one.
Here’s to day one!
Look after you. Be the change you want. You can.
Sometimes you need to be alone to reflect on life. Take time out to take care of yourself. You deserve it.
The good things we build end up building us.
You cannot change what you refuse to confront.
The difference between who you are and who you want to be, is what you do.
If you want your life to change, your choices and actions must change. Every day brings a chance to start over.
Good things don’t come to those who wait. Good things come to those who pursue the goals and dreams they believe in.
Don’t make a decision based solely on popularity. Just because other people are doing it doesn’t mean it’s the best choice for you.
Following all the rules leaves a completed checklist. Following your heart achieves a completed you.
Knowing yourself is one thing, but truly believing and living as yourself is another. With so much social conditioning in our society, we sometimes forget who we are. Don’t lose yourself out there.
Of all the things that can be stolen from you – your possessions, your youth, your health, your words, your rights – what no one can ever take from you is your freedom to choose what you will believe in, and who and what your heart will love.
When you find yourself cocooned in isolation and despair and cannot find your way out of the darkness, remember that this is similar to the place where caterpillars go to grow their wings.
Take all the time you need to heal emotionally. Moving on doesn’t take a day; it takes lots of little steps to be able to break free of your broken self.
When you can forgive, yourself and others, and stop the imprisonment, you’re creating the love of your life.
What you believe has more power than what you dream or wish or hope for. You become what you believe.
Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there’s a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living.
When you try to control everything, you enjoy nothing. Sometimes you just need to relax, breathe, let go, and just live in the moment.
Even though you cannot control everything that happens, you can control your attitude toward what happens. And in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.
Life will never be perfect, no matter how hard you try. Even if you pour your heart and soul into it, you will never have that perfection you seek. There will always be broken hearts, there will always be days where nothing goes right. But you must accept and learn that even the most imperfect things will always be made better with love and laughter.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
