Refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies. - Sex and the City

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!

Let go and let God.

Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder…

Life does not put things in front of you that you can not handle

Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens: but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us

Risk more than others think is safe.
Care more than others think is wise.
Dream more than others think is practical.
Expect more than others think is possible.

This is my wish for you:
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
comfort on difficult days,
rainbows to follow the clounds,
sunsets to warm your heart,
laughter to kiss your lips,
hugs when spirits sag,
friendship to brighten your being,
beauty for your eyes to see,
faith so that you can believe,
confidence for when you doubt,
courage to know yourself,
patience to accept the truth,
love to complete your life

When you get to the end of the rope, tie a note and hang on.

Life Is: trusting and taking chances, losing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories and learning from the past.
