Words of wisdom

Beyond a wholesome discipline,

be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,

no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,

no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,

whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,

in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world.

Be careful. Strive to be happy.

The horse,

with beauty unsurpassed,

strength immeasurable

and grace unlike any other, 

still remains humble enough

to carry a man upon his back.

Be thankful, always!

Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Adversity is a gift

Beautiful people do not just happen

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, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Yep, beautiful people do not just happen. Just as gold is refined by fire, struggles are there by default, for our own progress, to refine us, to be able to succeed in life. It’s time to unravel the real beauty and the strong person behind the veil. We’ve come so far…and so much more to go!

Also keep these in mind;

  • First and foremost, always be thankful for what you have!
  • Keep in mind that beginnings are not always easy – as chances of disappointments are awash till you get a good grip of it!
  • Put the right foot forward and have the determination to see the victory.
  • When pain and pressure rip through the soul, envision the big picture!
  • Fearlessly follow the path – Never surrender to failures
  • Painful struggles and hard work will sure follows abundance of joy and success.

Appreciation – an inexpensive gift!

I believe that the most valuable things in life are free. Like the air we breathe, the sun that outshine the dark, and each other’s good hearts and thoughts. Letting others know that they’re worth, holds an important part in our lives. No matter what place we possess on earth, instead of holding it back for the next time, use all the opportunities to make others feel good and worth, knowing that frequent appreciation would never hinder the flow of any positive outcome. It’s inexpensive yet valuable than any other gifts.
