“Nothing happens to you, it happens for you. See the positive in negative events.” – Joel Osteen

When things happen “to” you, you feel helpless and victimized. However, if you look at things as happening “for” you, then you take some of your power back. This allows you to look at the lessons and blessings (a.k.a. silver linings) within anything you might experience.

“I am thankful to all who said no to me. It is because of them that I’m doing it myself.” ~ Albert Einstein

Sometimes no isn’t the answer you want to hear, but there’s a reason for it. Can you imagine being the person that said no to Einstein? Surely they regretted that decision later. The thing is that if you have someone telling you know it could be a sign that you should just do it yourself. Or it could mean that you need to ask someone else. Don’t put a lot of stock in any one person saying yes, just never give up if it’s truly important to you.

“This life is like a swimming pool. You dive into the water, but you can’t see how deep it is.” – Dennis Rodman

There are many uncertainties in life, just like a swimming pool where you cannot see the bottom. We often dive into life with the uncertainty to diving into a pool. We are confident going in but we really have no idea what the outcome will be.

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is an oddly polarizing figure. She’s been loved and hated for her successes. She credits all of her success to positivity. When she speaks of her success, she rarely talks about hard work and determination. Rather she focuses on having the right thoughts and the right approach to life and work and values.

Existing is what everybody does. Living, now that is truly rare. People who wake up every day feeling blessed with another day to be alive are the ones that are truly living on this earth.

Sir Isaac Newton practically started the Age of Enlightenment. Most people just saw an apple fall. Newton observed the apple falling. That simple shift in thinking made our entire world change. It even changed the way we see this world and the universe that surrounds us.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~ Maya Angelou

Screen Shot 2020-06-26 at 12.20.46Here’s a great yardstick for life, not the number of years that we rack up but the number of times we have those moments of awe that make life worth living. Be sure that as you’re living your life you are searching out moments that will take your breath away, because that’s what we’re here for, to experience joy and awe and all of the good things that life has to offer. If you don’t lose sight of this, you’ll have an amazing life experience and you’ll keep that inner youth all the days of your life.

“Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.” – Grandma Moses

Screen Shot 2020-06-17 at 15.19.40The life that you live is not determined by outside sources. The life that you live is determined by what you make of it. Everybody is faced with challenges they have to overcome. Some people complain about them, some people overcome them and use them to get stronger and better.

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” – Carl Bard

We cannot change the past, we can only learn from it. However, anyone can change the ending of their life. If you do not like the past that you are heading down, then do something to change it and set yourself on the right path.

“Light tomorrow with today.” ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Today is your opportunity to make your tomorrow better. If you think of it from the point that your today is the result of your yesterdays, it’s clear that what you are doing today is either moving your forward or moving you backward.

That’s why you want to grab today by the horns and make the most of it as you can. Do that enough times and you’ll start to see signs that your todays are getting better, which only sets you up better and better for tomorrow. You can find yourself in negative or positive spiral based on how well you are spending your days.
