See beauty in the world today.

Jane DuBois

August 18th- The key to happiness is to see beauty in everything

There is beauty everywhere, you just have to look for it.

Author Unknown

They say that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Every thing has beauty, but not everyone sees it. It depends on your heart and mind. Beauty is defined by each one in a different way. Who you are inside says a lot about who you are outside. 

Life is unique and beautiful in its own way thus, everything has beauty but not every sees it. What is done, cannot be undone, what is gone will not return in the same form.What has changed will still change, but true love, wisdom and understanding are keys that will unlock the worthiness of life. What I see will be different than what you see. A good person uses their lips for truth, their voice for kindness, ears for compassion, hands for charity, heart for love and prayer for enemies. Beauty is a state that has nothing to do with looks, its all about how people feel around you and what you do to make them feel good.

Living our life in a way that we prove ourself and people around you, beauty should be found from within and not from worldly pleasures. To see something beautiful, first you have to have beautiful sight. A beautiful face cannot hide an ugly heart for too long. It’s not about having a pretty face, it is all about having a pretty mind, pretty heart and most importantly a pretty soul.

If you truly love nature you will find beauty everywhere.

Vincent Van Gogh

Nature is so full of beauty, that it would be impossible to count them. Every where I look, it’s like a miracle happening.The leaves change color and grow, then fall to the ground. The trees leave me in wonder and awe. Beauty is all about being comfortable in your own skin. Every time you think of beautiful things, don’t forget to count yourself.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Every ending is a new beginning. Through the grace of God, we can always start again.

Marianne Williamson

  August 18 - There is always room for a new idea a new step…a new beginning

Every day is a new beginning. Treat it that way. Stay away from what might have been, and look at what can be.

Marsh Petrie Sue

Life is full on new beginnings. Each morning and each day is a fresh start. Every day when we wake up we have the chance to live this new day. It’s like a clean slate.

Every day you make the decision how to act or to react on the events of your life. We can drag the past along with us or let it go and begin again. 

Starting over is not the same as recouping from a failure. It is a new beginning. By embracing each day as a new start, a new adventure, we get so much more out of life.

Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath and start again.

A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye.

Author Unknown.

August 17 th - the smell of fall is in the air.

It’s always summer somewhere !

Lilly Pulitzer

It’s that time of year once more when the children head back to school and I’ve been getting back to school pictures of the grandchildren in my email almost daily. When my kids headed back to school, summer has always pretty much ended for me. The lazy days of summer are over and the busyness of the school year sets in. Now I’m a grand’ma’, that feeling remains the same. Every one’s schedules are fast filling up and the there will be no more picnics in the sun or waves on the beach to jump in. 

Sadly time will speed up fast and furious and before we know it the holidays will be here. The end of another year is celebrated with harvest time. It’s a new chapter for us. Every summer has a story to tell and this one is coming to an end. While this summer wasn’t the best one, it wasn’t the worst either.

At the rate that time is flying, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it! 

Summer should get a speeding ticket. It goes by way too fast.

Be faithful in the small things because it is in them that you strength lies.

Mother Teeresa

August 16th -Don’t assume that faith is easy.

Stand straight, walk proud , have a little faith.

Garth Brooks.

Faith and trust have to go together. Trust is a powerful tool. One that can either make or break a person with the trust they have entrusted you with. Many times people remain faithful to you, keep the promises and can win your trust. But is is also a fact that some people will deceive you . It is therefore much advised that you don’t trust everyone easily.

Trusting is hard. Knowing who to trust, even harder.

Author Unknown

It’s hard to remain connected in a relationship with out it. And Without trust, faith is impossible. Faith is just not trusting that someone will do as they’ve promised. it’s the assurance that they will. 

Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships. 

Steven R. Covey

Faith is a strong belief in someone or something without logical proof. But trust is a firm reliance on the character of integrity of another. I have developed a faith in God, a belief that he is able, now I’ve learned that I can totally and completely rely on him. His promises are always true and he will be with us always. 

It’s abundantly clear that we live in an uncertain world. We don’t know what will happen tomorrow, But God is is a constant that will never leave or forsake us. 

Faith makes things possible, not easy.

You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment unless you trust enough.

Frank Crane

Chapter 8, Paage 15, Book 19

It’s nice to be important; but it’s more important to be nice.

John Templeton

Don’t do what you do for applause, do what you do you think is important

In a world of people who couldn’t care less, be someone who couldn’t care more.

Author Unknown

I’ve met a lot people over the years that thought they were better than me. They thought they were too important to be nice. If you were not a member of their club, you didn't matter at all. But the truth is that it doesn’t matter who we are, it is always important to be nice. 

There is never a time when our own importance should matter over that of another. Others actions can hurt but we don’t need to be like them. Remember no matter who we are, others should matter to us and we need to be nice to them.

The nice people in this world will be remembered longer that those that think they are too important to bother. We need each other and we need to be there for each other.

Kind people are the best kind of people.

You have the fredom to live and let live, to love and let love. Granting yourself that freedom is on of the healthiest, most constructive things you can do for yourself and the people that matter to you.

Martha Beck

August 15th = Live and let live.

Everyone is fighting their own battles to be free from their past to live in the present and create a meaningful future for themselves . Dont judge - have a heart 

Author Unknown

To live and let live means to accept people for what and who they are and to live your life to the fullest. We should all be able to live our lives in the manner we want, regardless of what others think. As long as we are not hurting or disrespecting others, I think it important to be ourselves. To be able to be tolerant and let people have their differences and not want everyoneto be all the same. 

The more we judge and compare. the less accepting we become. Itwasy to say but hard to do in a lot of cases, because we have preconceived ideas of how life should be lived. But, we can hove our differences and still show respect for others way of life. It’s similar to the golden rule in principal. Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

Live and Let live , as it is and always will be , the right motto for our times in order that we may live in peace together. 

Life is short, live it.
Love is rare, grab it.
Anger is bad, let go of it.
Fear is a mind killer, face it.
Memories are sweet, cherish them.

Needing to have things perfect is the surest way to immobilize yourself with frustration.

Wayne Dyer

August 13 = It shouldn’tbe this way.

Imperfect people are all God has ever had to deal with That must be terribly frustrating to him, but he deals with it.

Jeffrey R. Holland 

We all have our ideas about how things should be and when they don’t go our way that’s when frustration sets in. It’s better to try to come up with a way you can improve the situation, a way to do something differently, rather thanto focus on what you think the other person should be doing differently .

Remember: the next time you find yourself getting frustra
ted by a coworker of anyone else, remember that you too are imperfect.

Its true we are only human and none of us are perfect, but we are all works in progress. Perfection cant be found here on earth. 

Dont strive for perfection, you’ll onlybe disappointed . When youve done your best, that is good enough. 

I am not and never will be perfect, but I take comfort knowing Im better than I used be and not as good as I will be.

Michael Josephson
