Todays Quotes: 

Happiness is an attitude; we either make ourselves miserable or happy and strong. The amount of work is exactly the same

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened to you as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

Dr. Wayne W Dyer
