On Happiness AND Life…2 ideas that I love…

Reaching your goal takes steps. Every day you need to climb the stairs in order to get to the top. Sometimes you may fall down a couple but when that happens you need to get up and try again. The secret? Your attitude.


I’ve always loved this quote. I didn’t know John Lennon said it though. Smart man! A much deeper philosopher than his teacher.  One addition I’d like to make though is that life isn’t just about happiness but long-term happiness. Sometimes it is the pain of life that makes us happy in the long run (example: exercising, studying for a big test, relationships etc.)

Amazing Quote of the Day: When They Tell You You Can’t, You Say…


Quote of the Day: On Impossibility

Nothing is Impossible

The word itself says

“I’m possible

Breakfast at Tiffany's

My friend recently sent me this quote. I looked it up on-line and found that one of my favorite movie actresses said it. I really like Audrey Hepburn.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite movies.  The part at the end of the movie, where she loses her cat and then finds him always makes me cry, so I posted it above.

The quote has nothing to do with the movie, I don’t think, but it’s very inspirational and it’s nice to know who said it.

Speaking of the impossible, also reminds me of another movie: Cinderella. Here’s my favorite version with Brandy and Whitney Houston (what talents). I wish they had this version on Netflix but I couldn’t find it. Here’s the youtube version:

Sometimes, adults need fairy tale inspiration. In fact, I really needed to listen to this this week.

We can do it people! Let’s make our dreams and wishes possible!

I think I also heard this on the trailer for Iron Lady (the movie comes out in April on DVD)…. Margaret Thatcher may have also said this!

Quote of the Day: On Reality

Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Don Miguel Ruiz

This is SO true!!! It’s very hard to do because  we often are re-active to society and forget ourselves and the big picture of life. Often the way people treat you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. To not take anything personally is extremely difficult but to remember to do it is also very important.

Sometimes the biggest fight we can win in our lives is the battle with ourselves. If we work on ourselves and reflect inwardly and ask ourselves what is really going on in any situation I think that we will be more successful in life.

Integrity is doing what i…

Integrity is doing what is right when no one is looking.

Love these quotes on integrity. The word integrity is a hard one to explain. It means doing the right thing but it also means more than that. Doing the right thing is not always easy. The person who has integrity has strength and also faith. It’s such an important character trait and it can’t be emphasized enough in any society. A person with integrity is someone you can trust. Someone you know will not take advantage of you and whom you can trust. Find this person, he’s a keeper!

Furthermore, someone who acts with integrity will have far less worries because he won’t always be looking behind his back to see if someone might catch him doing something wrong. A life of integrity is a life of security and completeness!

Quote of the Day: On Living Life to the Fullest

Here is a beautiful quote about living life to the fullest. So often we live our life based on what others think our life should be. But we all have our personal mission to accomplish here on earth. We all have something to achieve that is beautiful. Worrying about what others think often gets in the way. Confidence is powerful. Here is a short mantra to help get us back on track:

You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,

Sing like there’s nobody listening,
