Words to live by in 2016
As we commence 2016, here are some thoughts to help guide you through the year:
Youíre going to have some bad days
Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful. The happiness in your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
Itís always ok to begin again
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. Many of lifeís failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up.
Have the courage to follow your dreams and more importantly, the moral courage to do what you think is right. Doing the right thing lifts your self-esteem.
Donít think you know it all
The quality of your life will be determined by the books you read and the friends you keep. When you do your best, you feel your best.
Remember the people who are important to you
There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
Donít forget to have fun
Laughter is the essence of happiness. If you canít find something funny in almost every situation, you are not going to be a very happy person.
An attitude of gratitude flavours everything you do. Learning to be thankful is the golden thread woven through every truly successful life.
There is ample evidence that generosity helps your health and that cynicism, hostility and negativity leads to all sorts of diseases. Your mental health Ė your attitude Ė plays a big role in your physical health. Feeling is what you get for thinking the way you do.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life
Take each day in 2016 and see that they are free from old memories of bitterness, hate or pettiness. After all each day is brand new, like a clean sheet and itís up to you how you choose to live it.
Make 2016 the very best year of your life.
