Feel Alive!

Choose to be whomever you please; imaginary or real.

Today was a great day, until I got to work. Once I got here I realized how much I didn't want to be here. It wasn't only my brain thinking it -- it was materializing itself into my physical symptoms as well. My eyes are heavy, my head is foggy, my legs and back are weak. Thing is, I know it's all my state of mind that could change it in a heartbeat, but it's not always that easy. Sometimes we don't know what's weighing us down. Only way you can fix a problem is knowing what that problem is in the first place.

So I decided to gather some "happy" quotes to boost me up and make me realize that no one else can make me happy but myself! Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

"The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” (Mark Twain)

“If you want to be happy, be.” (Leo Tolstoy)

“Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

“Happiness is not a goal; it is a by - product.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)

“Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it.” (Fyodor Dostoevsky)

“Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” (Stacey Charter)

“Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” (Nathaniel Hawthorne)

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” (Dalai Lama)

“Happiness is a Swedish sunset; it is there for all, but most of us look the other way and lose it.” (Mark Twain)

“The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment.” (Doug Larson)
