Count your blessings instead of your crosses; Count your gains instead of your losses. Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes. Count your smiles instead of your tears; Count your courage instead of your fears. Count your full years instead of your lean; Count your kind deeds instead of your mean. Count your health instead of your wealth; Love your neighbor as much as yourself.
When all is said and done, you are part of me. That's the way it was meant to be. People are brought together for a reason, everything happens for a reason. I believe the reason that you and me were brought together was because we complete one another. We fill in each other's missing spots with love.

What I mean is people will only treat you as good as you treat yourself. If you don’t truly love yourself others will find it difficult to love you too. Focus on finding it within yourself to accept the real you and embrace your truth. With love comes respect and once you respect yourself, you will find that you... Read more »
When you have good attitude, your biggest power will come once people underestimate you. Protect your enthusiasm from the negativity and fear of others. Never decide to do nothing just because you can only do little. Do what you can. You would be surprised at what "little" acts have done for our world.

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too... Read more »
