I thought I would put up some new quotes today that are uplifting, the kind of thing you would say to someone else if the were in distress. If you are the one who is in distress, sometimes you need to say the uplifting thing to yourself.
“The greatest Wealth is contentment with little.”—-English Proverb
“Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.” Eleanor Roosevelt
“If you can’t make it better, at least you can laugh at it.” —Erma Bombeck
“Don’t worry about the world ending today, it’s already tomorrow in Australia.”—Charles Schultz
“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes, you get what you need.”—Mick Jagger
“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson
“If you’re going through hell, keep going.” —Winston Churchill
Life is too short not to be happy.
In times of life crisis, whether wild fires or smoldering stress, the first thing I do is go back to basics… am I eating right, am I getting enough sleep, am I getting some physical and mental exercise everyday.
When I found this quote, it really spoke to me. I find that rationality and logic are the only things that make sense to me. I don’t know how to deal with people who are irrational. I tend to try and be the voice of reason, but there are people that will not listen to reason. I had never really figured out that maybe the reason I am that way, is because I need reason to feel that my world is stable and less out of control.
I must stress here the point that I appreciate clarity, order, meaning, structure, rationality: they are necessary to whatever provisional stability we have, and they can be the agents of gradual and successful change.
Archie R. Ammons
“The capacity of man himself is only revealed when, under stress and responsibility, he breaks through his educational shell, and he may then be a splendid surprise to himself no less than to this teachers.”
“Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life.”
“Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”
“Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times.”
“No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.”
Barbara de Angelis
“We exaggerate misfortune and happiness alike. We are never as bad off or as happy as we say we are.”
Honore de Balzac
“Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.”
