“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” -Helen Keller
“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.” -Dalai Lama
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”
“When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things—not the great occasions—that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.”
I’ve decided to designate Sundays as “Simple Quote Sundays” on my blog, where I’ll just leave a quote that I find to be of great value. If you have a quote that comes across your path one week, or if there’s one you tend to keep in the back of your mind to get you through good times or bad, feel free to share it with us. And if you’d like to let us know why the quote is so special to you, that would be an even bigger bonus!
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” -Albert Schweitzer
So I keep getting this voice in my head that continuously reminds me that I haven’t blogged in almost a year. And the last time I posted something was about how I was going to start posting more often since I had been slacking. Well, you all can understand how life gets in the way and how some of us tend to put things off until we “find the time,” but I’m tired of making excuses so here we go.
With nearly fifteen minutes left in 2013, I wanted to post something committing to making a promise. I didn’t want to wait until next year to start anew because I wanted to end this year and begin the next one on a positive note. I will blog more throughout this upcoming year. There. I said it and now it’s published for the WordPress world to see.
This past year has been a great one, and I can’t exclaim how fortunate I have been throughout 2013. With another year soon to be in the past and a new one arriving shortly, I think it’s safe to say that 2014 is going to be a year filled with love, happiness, blessings, and incredible opportunities for each and every one of us. I hope you all have a great evening enjoying the remnants of 2013 and welcoming in the start of a New Year, and remember, it’s never too late to make any kind of resolution (Says my guilty conscience from not blogging enough this past year). Happy New Year to each of you and I can’t wait to share it with you all.
A while back, a friend of mine gave me a to do list that I hung up in my room, which is a constant reminder of various important lessons that we should work to incorporate into our lives on a daily basis. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do!
My To Do List:
Today… I Choose to Live at Peace: No matter what happens around me
Today… I Choose Forgiveness: Of myself and others to set Myself Free
Today… I Choose Happiness: And spread it to the universe
Today… I Choose to Love: Unconditionally
