Quote No. 1

When you can't change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails. - H. Jackson Brown

How many times has something not gone your way, or gone the way you thought it would? Lost count? Yea, me too. This is what this quote means to me. When life is not going the way, you set your sail to then adjust it. Sometimes we have to adjust to the cards they deal us, or adjust our sails...

Quote No. 2

Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear, and the blind can see. - Mark Twain

This is so true. We should hand out kindness like candy. It is so much easier to be kind. Mark Twain was so right. Do all things in kindness.

Quote No. 3

F.E.A.R. has two meanings. Forget Everything And Run. Or, Face Everything And Rise. The choice is yours. - Zig Ziglar

We all fear something or lots of some things. Don't let fear stop you. Instead, face it head-on and great things will happen.

Quote No. 4

Learn to say "no" without explaining yourself. - unknown

This is so powerful. Who taught us we have to explain our every action? Who said we must explain our yes or explain our no? Not everything needs or warrants an explanation.

Quote No. 5

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got - Steven Hayes

So basically, if you are not happy, stop doing the same damn thing. I was not happy with my job. It wasn't one particular thing, but more of a combination of a lot of small things. Then I realized I have choices. You have choices.

Quote No. 6

The best things in life aren't things - Art Buckwald

Ok, I am going to admit; it took me a long time to figure this out. And I still have days where I struggle with this. The best things in life are loved ones, smiles, experiences, memories. This list could go on. Not once did I list new shoes, a little black dress, a new car. See where I am going with this?

Quote No. 7

It always seems impossible until it's done - Nelson Mandela

We have days when a task is set before us and we think, "there is no way". There is always a way.
