Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

Breathe in now...

Do you ever have moments where you sit back and feel so lucky to be who you are and have what you have?  If not then you should.  It might be hard but its possible for anyone, the human mind is so incredibly powerful and we don't even realise it.  Try to see life like the beautiful roses on a thorn bush, instead of the terrible thorns on a rose bush.  It is so rewarding.  Most of you don't need me to promote "life" to you because hopefully you see beauty in it already.  For those who struggle to see it, when you wake up tomorrow and you look out your window embrace whats out there and know that what you see is the smallest view of an entire world and your possibilities are endless.

Heres a favourite quote of mine that always seems to sum up life for me, in a nut shell of course:

"It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life..."
American Beauty

And others that I love:

"Be happy, be healthy and embrace life.  Its too short to live any other way".

"As we cultivate peace and happiness in ourselves, we also nourish peace and happiness in those we love".

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough".

"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens".
