Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. If someone else has not already welcomed you to 2011, let me be the first to say Happy New Year.
With the start of a new year, I hear people asking one another a similar question, “What is your new year’s resolution?”As I heard this question being asked, I reflected upon what answer I would give if I was asked, “What is your new year’s resolution?”
As I reflected, several thoughts and quotes came to mind. These thoughts and quotes remind me that I can restart my day over at any time. These thoughts and quotes help me to look at my circumstances and experiences in a different light. These thoughts and quotes encourage, inspire and give me focus.
May you also be encouraged and inspired by these thoughts and quotes.
In life, I need to remember that there are no such thing as a happy victim.
Happiness is an inside job. When I look outside of myself — for happiness — I set myself up to be disappointed. I am responsible for my own happiness.
