Sometimes life seems extremely difficult. Happy memories get pushed to the back of your mind, you almost forget that they even happened in the first place! Those bad memories creep in & take over your mind, making you feel helpless & sucking every last bit of happiness from your soul.
I’m here, sharing with you a collage of happiness that I made for you today, to inspire you & to prove to you that there is light in the world yet, to warm your heart & to hopefully make you smile 🙂
Remember that… happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
(Quote from Harry Potter)
Each picture made me smile & I hope at least one of them makes you smile too!
Thanks for reading! ..xo
“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines.
She was beautiful for the way she thought.
She was beautiful for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved.
She was beautiful for her ability to make others smile even when she was sad.
No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks.
She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.”
You don’t just find beauty by using your eyes, open your heart to find the true beauty in life.
This isn’t to say that as you age, you are no longer beautiful because that is so far from the truth.
Just always remember to see past the “decoration” & seek the inner beauty of the soul because that is precious 🙂
“One person can make a difference & everyone should try”
It’s not only possible for one person to make a difference, it is essential that one person makes a difference & believe it or not, that person is you!
“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do something I can do.”
Start today! You have nothing to lose. If you don’t succeed with making a difference in the way which you first thought of, know that you have just inspired others to also try & make a difference. Therefore you did exactly what you set out to do, make a difference.
If you don’t try, who will?
For me, a persons true beauty is something that we can not see on the outside. We can’t see this by simply looking at someone. It comes from within. Those who judge other people by just looking at the “cover on the book” may miss out on meeting the most genuine, wonderful people they could ever hope of meeting.
The outer layer is just decoration.
The picture above says it all, some of the most beautiful people that I personally know are the ones who know what it is like to struggle in life. They are the ones who have chosen to use their previous or constant struggles to help others, to offer compassion, love and kindness to others who are struggling. What is more beautiful than that?
One friend of mine in particular has recently started a blog on wordpress “manofwheels” . He is truly a huge inspiration in my life & always will be. He not only inspires me daily but his family and 100’s of friends too. If you’re interested in reading about his story, his blog is http://manofwheels.wordpress.com/
Thank you for taking the time to read my post & I hope that I have reminded or inspired you to seek the inner beauty in the people that you next meet 🙂
