“Healing comes from taking responsibility: to realise that it is you - and no one else - that creates your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions.”

Peter Shepherd

Why do I like the quote?

The moment you realise your reactions are your own responsibility - you gain so much power and ability to change your life.

“The biggest rewards in life are found outside your comfort zone. Live with it. Fear and risk are prerequisites if you want to enjoy a life of success and adventure.”

Jack Canfield

Why do I like the quote?

Taking that step into the unknown can be full of fear and risk, but the possibilities and sense of achievement that comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone make it all so worth it. It's uncomfortable, but being stuck in the same place brings much more discomfort and regret in the long run.

"At the end of the day people won't remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel."

Maya Angelou

Why do I like the quote?

I was reminded of this quote listening to a podcast this week. It reminded me that my vibe and energy will influence those around me. Try and make your interactions with others count.

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

Dalai Lama

Why do I like the quote?

It seems obvious that compassion may well be the answer to many of our difficulties, but it's so easily forgotten. Keeping this quote in mind might help us to remember.

“The art of peaceful living comes down to living compassionately & wisely.”

Allan Lokos

Why do I like the quote?

Any quote that reminds me to slow down, make wise choices and be kind is a favourite quote of mine. Being kind to yourself and others is an under-rated tool for happiness.

“You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.”

Diane Von Furstenberg

Why do I like the quote?

We can be so critical and harsh towards ourselves. You wouldn't enjoy the company of someone else who treated you like that. Don't accept it from yourself either. Be kind to yourself instead.

Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude

Denis Waitley

Why do I like the quote?

I sometimes fall into the trap of looking outside of myself for happiness, I will believe that until I get X, Y or Z, I won't be happy. Quotes like this are my reminder that it's all about the journey ;)

"Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely."

Roy T. Bennett

Why do I like the quote?

I could use a Roy T. Bennett quote every day. This is a simple message, we have a choice in how we live our lives. We forget that. We live in a blame culture. I mess up, I do and say things I regret. taking responsibility for those things is what helps me move forward and attempt to do it different next time.
