Mottos to Live By:
1. Instead of complaining to God for the things he has not given you, thank him for the things he has.

2. When you have the urge to scream at someone or dislike them for whatever the reason, remember what could be going on to make them like this. Maybe they are having the worst day imaginable. Remember how you act or are urged to act when you're in a poor mood? Well, give them the benefit of the doubt. In fact, be especially nice to those you cannot stand. You might become the happiness they need.

3. Go out of your way to make a difference. Don't just tell others, "If only the world were more like this. If only people acted more like this." and then go on moaning and groaning about it, be the first to take that step into the light if you have to. Even if nothing much comes from it, at least you'll know you gave it a try and if anything at least you'll be changing yourself for the better. You have no idea how much a simple smile can brighten another's day.

4. Keep in mind, you are never alone. Ever. God is always there. Do not push Him aside. Embrace Him.
