Words that Helped Me Survive this Year

"When we make a change, it's so easy to interpret our unsettledness as unhappiness, and our unhappiness as a result of having made the wrong decision. Our mental and emotional states fluctuate madly when we make big changes in our lives, and some days we could tight-rope across Manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth. This is normal. This is natural. This is change." - Jeanette Wilkerson

"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will." - Chuck Palahniuk

BREATHE IN THE FUTURE. BREATHE OUT THE PAST.

"Ask yourself this one question: Will this really matter a year from now?" - Richard Carlson

THE GRASS IS GREENER WHERE YOU WATER IT.

"You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love." - Nicholas Sparks

"In live we do things. Some we wish he had never done, some we wish we could replay a million times over in our heads. But they ALL make us who we are. And in the end, they share every detail about us. If we were to reverse ANY of them, we wouldn't be who we are. So, just live. Make mistakes. Have wonderful memories. But never ever second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importantly--where you are going." - Unknown

God doesn't give us what we can handle. God helps us handle what we are given.

Out of clutter, FIND SIMPLICITY. From discord, FIND HARMONY. In the middle of difficulty LIES OPPORTUNITY. - Albert Einstein

"Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles." - Charlie Chaplin

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. IT IS YOURS." - Ayn Rand

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not why ships were built. - Fortune Cookie

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE. THE ENEMY HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE. BE READY FOR BOTH. JUST BE WISE ENOUGH TO KNOW WHICH ONE TO BATTLE AND WHICH ONE TO EMBRACE.

"This journey has molded you for your greater good. And it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. It took each and every situation you've encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time." - Asha Tyson

Sometimes God calms the storm. Sometimes God lets the storm rage and calms His child. - Psalm 27

CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOU'LL CHANGE YOUR WORLD.

"You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have." - Cayla Mills

"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always lessen the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant." - The Doctor  
There is no TESTimony without the TEST.

"Perhaps strength doesn't reside in never having been broken... but in the courage required to grow strong in the broken places." - Lauren Maddox

Let your past make you BETTER, not bitter.
