Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.  ~Joel Osteen

 

It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there’s nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized.  ~Wayne Dyer

 

The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.  – William James

 

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.  – Thich Nhat Hanh

 

We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.  – Mary Dunbar

 

My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring.  ~Prince William

 

Dedicating some time to meditation is a meaningful expression of caring for yourself that can help you move through the mire of feeling unworthy of recovery. As your mind grows quieter and more spacious, you can begin to see self-defeating thought patterns for what they are, and open up to other, more positive options.  ~Sharon Salzberg

 

We emphasize negativity and violence in the media because that’s what grabs everybody’s attention, but in the real world, it’s mostly people being very cooperative and caring and connected and kind. That’s the norm of human experience. And yet, what gets our attention is the very opposite.   ~Richard Linklater

 

I know from personal experience how fear and low self-worth can cripple one’s ability to succeed in life. But with a little support, caring and inspiration, miracles can happen.  ~Richard Hatch

 

Have a great week!
