Thus my new life begins!

Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.
**Dale Carnegie

Enjoy Your Life!

“Remember:
Life is short, break the rules (they were made to be broken)
Forgive quickly, kiss slowly
Love truly, laugh uncontrollably
And never regret anything that makes you smile.
The clouds are lined with silver and the glass is half full (though the answers won’t be found at the bottom)
Don’t sweat the small stuff,
You are who you are meant to be,
Dance as if no one’s watching,
Love as if it’s all you know,
Dream as if you’ll live forever, 
Live as if you’ll die today” 

**James Dean

Embody Joy!

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
**Lord Byron

Short v. Long Lasting

“Fun is temporary at best; it’s risky, even dangerous, at worst. Joy, on the other hand, was mystery I couldn’t seem to decipher.” 

**Liz Curtis Higgs

A Drama King by Birth

“Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.”

~~William Butler Yeats

 

Coloring the Ceiling

“Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme

experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to

draw on the ceiling.”

–Gilbert K. Chesterton
