Is it the day or is it your attitude?

Happiness is not a choice — but whether you let something ruin your day is.

How you respond to life experiences and the attitude you harbor while doings so is entirely within your control.

A challenger appears

Some people are going to help you. And some people are going to challenge you. And those people are helping you, too.

Whether — and how much — you grow from life experience and whether you allow them to hold you back or instead, you use them to push forward is largely up to you.

Work to be proud, not popular

Too many people spend too much time trying to be popular — or trying to produce popular things — an not enough time doing things that they’ll be proud of no matter the outcome is.

Being truly proud of your work and what you accomplish is rewarding regardless of its popularity.

Consistently doing — and seeking out things you can do that you’ll be proud of, no matter how things turn out — can be tremendously rewarding and will often increase one’s sense of self-worth and feelings about their life.

Comparing yourself to others

Comparing yourself to others is just another way of judging people — including yourself. The less you do it, the happier you are likely to be.

You’re not here to follow someone else’s path & they’re not here to follow yours. Stay on target by focusing on your path, not others’.

Donate. Re-gift. Recycle. Trash.

Why do you continue to hold onto things you don’t use?

If it’s been years since you said you’d use (or wear) something & you still haven’t, you probably won’t.

What you own ends up owning you the longer you go without getting value from it.

Who it starts with

Kindness. Love. Respect. Compassion. Tolerance.

While you’re waiting for other people to put in the effort to show what you wish there was more of in the world, other people are doing the same — waiting.

It doesn’t start with them — it starts with you.
