Don't Forget to Smile!

 I love that everyone has a story. It’s easy to see someone being rude to you at a store and take it at face value. But if you sit down and talk with people, you realize everyone has a story. When you live with that in mind, you treat each other with more respect. Believe the best in people; we’re all going through stuff. People you would never expect to have a single hard day in their lives have been through some real tragedies. 

Never regret: if it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.

 In life, you often come across a point. A point where you have to make a choice. Sometimes, you’re so scared from making the wrong choice, you simply go with the safer option. In life, you often make wrong choices, and by the time you figure out what the right one was, it’s not there anymore. Don’t play on the safe side. Taking risks leads to great things. Nothing great comes easy. It requires thrill, chase, and true feelings. Sometimes the safe guys play you the hardest. 

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.

Never regret a day in your life. Good days gives you joy, while bad days gives you experience. Both are important for a successful life.

Everything you want is out there, waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.

We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather recognizing and appreciating what we do have.

Time decides who you meet in life, your heart decides who you want in your life, but your behavior decides who will stay in your life.

 I don’t believe we have to be better than everybody else. I believe we have to be better than we ever thought we could be.

The greatest thing you can be proud of is being able to stand from a fall and becoming a better person.

 When finding love, don’t look for someone with that perfect smile. You have that. Find someone who can make you smile that perfect smile. 

If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart, where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.

She’s tough, but she tries to hide it, she’s difficult, but if you make an effort, she’s worth it.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

You feel the need to carry the world on your shoulders. That’s noble. But there are other people out there who want to help you fight the good fight, and you need to let them in. Because sometimes even heroes need to be saved.

You closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them too, even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling.
