Food For Thought ~ Part 3

  1. When someone tells you, “You’ve changed,” it might simply be because you’ve stopped living your life their way.
  2. Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right.
  3. Be happy.  Be yourself.  If others don’t like it, then let them be.  Happiness is a choice.  Life isn’t about pleasing everybody.
  4. When you’re up, your friends know who you are.  When you’re down, you know who your friends are.
  5. Don’t look for someone who will solve all your problems; look for someone who will face them with you.
  6. If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn't eat him.
  7. No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.
  8. The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
  9. Many people are so poor because the only thing they have is money.
  10. Learn to appreciate the things you have before time forces you appreciate the things you once had.
  11. When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself.
  12. You don’t drown by falling in the water.  You drown by staying there.
  13. It’s better to know and be disappointed than to never know and always wonder.
  14. There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
  15. Happiness is not determined by what’s happening around you, but rather what’s happening inside you.  Most people depend on others to gain happiness, but the truth is, it always comes from within.
  16. If you tell the truth, it becomes a part of your past.  If you lie, it becomes a part of your future.
  17. What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while.  Read The Power of HabitDescription:
  18. You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.
  19. Things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out.
  20. If you don’t like something, change it.  If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it
