I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.
If you’re always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing, you can be.
Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.
Determine to live life with flair and laughter.
Life is what you bake it!
