Bit of Happy #144: A Sweet Saying

16 Apr

“If you live to be one hundred, I hope I live to be one hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”
-Winnie the Pooh

A coworker of mine shared this quote with me not too long ago, and I thought it was too ADORABLE not to share with all of you.

And sorry for not posting on Friday and waiting until Saturday. Now that beautiful weather has hit my hometown, I’ve been absolutely miserable. It’s a very bittersweet couple of months. As much as I LOVE when the warmth of the sun begins to melt away all of the ice and snow from winter, spring also means allergies. And allergies, I don’t love. Not in the least bit. Thanks again for you patience!

I hope today’s quote warmed your heart just as it did mine. Have a GREAT rest of the weekend! Hopefully some of this rain will wash some of the pollen out of the air.


Bit of Happy #136: A World With No Passion?

5 Apr

“Without passion, you don’t have energy; without energy, you have nothing. Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.”
-Donald Trump

Don’t assume from today’s quote that I’m a huge Donald Trump fan, but I must say this statement has a lot of power. Without passion, without a drive to succeed, nothing great will come out of the effort put forth. In fact, there will be no true effort because there lies an unwillingness to put any amount of substantial energy into the task at hand.

I think it is important to take a step back in life and realize what you are truly passionate about. If it’s about helping others, go out in the world and use that as your driving force to accomplish something great. If it’s about caring for animals, wake up every morning and energize yourself with how you will make that a reality. If it’s about making the world more beautiful, take that dream as your daily motivation to change what is gray and bland into something colorful and bright.

Anyone who matches passion with an undeniable energy to accomplish something great in life has the ability to make a difference. Acquire these qualities and practice them each day. Never lose sight of your dreams, and from there, all you have to do is begin with a single step.

Happy Tuesday!

Bit of Happy #134: The Only Sunshine

2 Apr

“Today, give a stranger one of your smiles.  It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.”
– Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

What a thought. Today’s quote, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr., shows the power of a smile. Something as small as a that kind gesture can go a long way. It doesn’t cost any money. It doesn’t require the accomplishment of any great feat. Just tug those muscles at the corners of your lips, and you may very well make someone’s day quite wonderful. Inspire new hope. Shine new light.

So what should you do?SMILE!

Happy Friday!

Bit of Happy #37: Just The Way You Are

3 Nov

“Be more concerned about your character than your reputation because your character is who you are and your reputation is what others think of you.”
-John Wooden

John Wooden gives great insight into what is important in life – that you can’t always worry what people think of you or what stereotypical box they put you in. All you can do is be yourself, your true character. If they are going to pass judgement on you, especially inaccurate ones, then they aren’t really worth your time or tears. If your character is true, honest and pure, what more could someone ask for?

Let people say what they want. Think what they want. Pass what judgements they want. Don’t even blink an eye at it. Just keep your chin up and look ahead, instead of behind. You know who you are inside and don’t be afraid to show your personality. Because your great! Beautiful! And perfect just the way you are. If they can’t appreciate and cherish the real you, then what does that say about their character?

Take a moment to really think about that. Take a moment to celebrate your character and to allow your reputation to fade into the background. You deserve that peace of mind more than anything. Just let it go. Free your mind.
