I am a native of planet Earth (by way of Chicago) and I was raised by parents who taught my siblings and me to always take time to count our blessings. The following ideals are things I picked up along the way and worth remembering.
Your presence is a present to the world.
You are unique and one of a kind.
Your life can be what you want it to be.
Live one day at a time.
Count your blessings, not your troubles.
You will make it through whatever comes along.
Within you, are so many answers.
Understand, have courage and be strong.
Do not limit yourself.
So many dreams are waiting to be realized.
Decisions are too important to leave to chance.
Gratitude is the greatest attribute you can have.
Nothing wastes more time than worrying.
The only things you get to keep are the things you give away.
Don’t take things too seriously.
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.
Remember that a little goes a long way.
Friendships are a wise investment.
Life’s treasures are people… together.
Realize that’s it’s never too late.
Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
Live everyday as if it was your last.
Take time to wish upon a star.
Sobriety is the gift that keeps on giving.
Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.
