I rather go on in life being me and imperfect, than striving to be what someone else wants.
Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.
I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives.
Optimism is a happy ness magnet. If you stay constructive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.
