Joy in Life

“Joy is what we are,not what we must get.Joy is the realization that all we want or need in life has been etched into our souls.Joy helps us see not what we are “going through,” but what we are “growing to”-a greater sense of understanding,accomplishment,and enlightenment.Joy reveals to us the calm at the end of the storm,the peace that surpasses the momentary happiness of pleasure. If we keep our minds centered on joy,joy becomes a state of mind.”-Iyanla Vanzant

Beauty of Life

“I will greet this day with love in my heart.And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.I will love the sun for it warms my bones;yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.I will love the light for it shows me the way;yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart;yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due;yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.”- Og Mandino

Confidence in Life

“Self-worth is an understanding on the intellectual level,trusting at the heart level,and accepting at the soul level that you are worthy just because you believe that you are.Your worthiness is proven by your existence.Your breathing. The beating of your heart.Your mere presence is all that is needed to establish your worth.”-Iyanla Vanzant
