When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

What makes you happy?
I got this card last Friday. Somewhere along last weekend, the clock ticked passed the time, and I turned 40. Is it a big deal, or is it just another day on a calendar? I guess, for most, it was a happy Friday. For me, it was a happy birthday:) And one person made it worth every year, every hour, every minute lived. Despite many a turning points, besides bad news continually striking from different directions, we stand tall - and keep our heads high.
Because we intend to create happiness, not wait for it to happen to us.
I felt pampered that day. Cared for, loved, cherished. I felt like nothing in the world can shake me off this Earth and make me miserable. I will not let it happen. I am the only one who is responsible for my own life. Each of us is. I read enough books to open a psychology business. But bottom line is always a common sense.
Do what you love. Be with whom you love. Do what you'd be proud of. And never blame anybody for what is.
And get bold sometimes. Not in a direct sense of the word. Although close to it counts too:)
