Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there.

Though no one can go back and make a new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new end.

Never give up for that is just the time and place the tide will turn.

If I have inside of me the stuff to make cocoons, then maybe the stuff to make butterflies is there, too.

To be upset over what I donít have is to waste what I do have.

I hang onto my humor. I Donít ask for permission, I just do it. I make everything fun!

Today I will seek out things that are fun to do.

I am not afraid of life. I believe that life is worth living, and my belief helps create the fact.

Either I find a way, or I will make one.

The question I ask myself is not if I should heal but how I should heal.

I will not wait to have a good day. I will make one.

I forgive myself and others, release the past and move forward with love in my heart.

I love and approve of myself, am at peace with my own feelings and stand tall and free.

If I can endure for this minute whatever is happening to me No matter how heavy my heart is or how dark the moment might be...If I can but keep on believing what I know in my heart to be true, That darkness will fade with morning and that this will pass away, too...Then nothing can ever disturb me or fill me with uncertain fear, For as sure as night brings dawning, my morning is bound to appear...
