Start your Day with Positive Thoughts

Life is all about three things - winning, losing and sharing.
Winning others' heart, losing bad things and sharing happy moments.

Life is better when you are happy, but it is even better when other people are happy because of you, so share happiness everywhere in the environment.

You will never get what you want until you are thankful for what you have.

The beauty of the morning is not in the freshness of the atmosphere. It is in the freshness of our thoughts and feelings of how we wish to start our day.

Many people are able to speak about beautiful things but only a a few of them are able to listen, because listening requires mind power.

Happiness is one of our greatest gifts. It is to be shared, cherished, and enjoyed every day of our lives.

One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

Where there is great love there are always miracles. - Willa Cather

In life we all haven an unspeakable secret, an irreversible regret, a broken promise, an irreplaceable lost, and unforgettable love. Still, life is about being happy, because everything in life can be summed up in just few words. Life is a beautiful journey.

Hard work is like stairs and luck is like lift. Sometimes lift may fail, but stairs will always take you to the top.

Good behaviour doesn't have any monetary value. But it has the power to purchase million hearts.

The mind is a powerful force. It can enslave us or empower us. It can plunge us into the depths of misery or take us to the heights of ecstasy. Learn to use the power wisely. - David Cuschieri

Enjoy every moment of your life..
Life is too short to waste on grudges.
Laugh when you can, apologise when you should, and let go of what you can't change.

To have peace in life, love the people who treat you right and pray for the ones who don't.

Appreciate every little beautiful moment in every day of your life. Give it a try and you'll see the world from another perspective.

God has given us eyes not to insult but to look beyond situations.
Mouth not to criticise but to speak for truth.
Hands not to punish sinners but to give a helping hand.
Ears not to be insensitive but to hear voice in pain.
Everything has its own purpose. We should use it well.

We are human. We are not perfect.
We are alive. We try things.
We make mistakes.
We stumble. We fall. We get hurt.
We rise again. We try again.
We keep learning. We keep growing.
And we are thankful for this priceless opportunity called life.

Judge nothing, you will be happy.
Forgive everything, you will be happier.
Love everything, you will be happiest.

God's blessings come as a surprise but how much you receive depends on how much your heart believes!

What's done is done. What's gone is gone.
One of life's lessons is always moving on. It's okay to look back and think of fond memories but keep moving forward.

Beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul.

Life is too short! Take time to celebrate and appreciate the amazing people in your life.
It's not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters.

Life is too short to worry about what others say or think about you. So just enjoy life, have fun, and give them something to talk about.

Good results are generated at the end of the day only if good thoughts are generated at the beginning of the day.

When people respect you as a person, they admire you.
When they respect you as a friend, they love you.
When they respect you as a leader, they follow you.

Observe and ask questions of people you respect, and you'll gain incredible lessons that you can apply to your own life.

If we wait until we're ready, we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives.

Live Life

Serenity Prayer
- Reinhold Neibuhr (1892-1971)

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Don't waste words on people who deserve your silence.
Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all.

---------------------------------------

Don't start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday.
Every morning we wake up is the first day of the rest of our life.

---------------------------------------

Your smile is your logo.
Your personality is your business card,
and the way you make others feel is your trademark.

----------------------------------------

A lamp doesn't speak...
It introduces itself through its light...
Achievers never expose themselves...
But their achievements expose them.

-----------------------------------------

There is no definition for a good day or a bad day..
It all depends on you and your thoughts that, either you rule the day or the day rules you.

Rule your day.

------------------------------------------

Rain drops may be little in shape and size...
But their continuous fall makes a river overflow...
Remember small consistent efforts makes massive changes in life...
Have a stress-free day!

-------------------------------------------

Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very little, and are thankful for the little things in life.

--------------------------------------------

Best philosophy in life is to keep the mind happy!
We don't know whether success gives happiness or not, but a happy mind can always lead to success.

---------------------------------------------

Weak people believe in revenge,
Strong people believe in forgiving,
Intelligent people believe in ignoring.

---------------------------------------------

If you think you are rich, there are many richer than you.
If you think you are clever, there are more people cleverer than you.
But if you think you are honest, then you are among the few, and in this instance, it is best to be among the few. - Tunku Abdul Rahman

---------------------------------------------

Time, Friends, Health and Relations,
Don't come with a price tag.
But when we lose them,
Then we realise the cost.

A beautiful post...from one mother to another mother

There were days when my home used to be filled with laughter, arguments, fights, jokes and loads of mischief.
Books used to be strewn all over the show. Pens and books all over, and clothes messing the rooms, thrown on the beds.
I used to shout at them to tidy up their mess.

In the morning,
One will wake up and say: mama I can't find a certain book.
And the other will say: I can't find my perfume.
And one will say: Mama where's my homework.
And will say: Mama I forgot to complete my homework.

Everyone used to ask about their lost possessions.
And I will say, but take care of your stuff, be responsible, you have to grow up.

And today I stand at the doorway of the room.
The beds are empty.
All the cupboards have only a few pieces of clothes in them.
And what remains is the smell of perfume that lingers in the air.
Everyone had a special smell.
So I take in the smell of their perfume for maybe it will fill the empty ache in my heart.

All I have now is the memory of their laughs and their mischief and their warm hugs.

Today my house is clean and organised and everything is in its place, and it is calm and peaceful. But it is like a desert with no life in it. Do not become angry with your kids about the mess.

Every time they come to visit and they spend time with us, when they are ready to leave, they pull their bags and it is as if they tug my heart along with it.

They close the door behind them and then I stand still and think of the many times I shouted them to close the doors.

Here I am today, closing my own doors. Nobody opens it besides me. Each one has gone to a different city or a different country. All left to find their own path in life.

They have grown up and I wished that they could stay with me forever.
Oh! God, take care of them and all other children wherever they may be, for you are their guide and protector... and always keep them happy.

A Mother
