Proceed with a happy heart

But first, please read below ...

Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and

when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop

apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time

with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop

giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being

interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy

it. Finally know who you are.

-Kristin Armstrong

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No

apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours- it is an

amazing journey- and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day

your life really begins.

~Bob Moawad

Use your voice for kindness, your ears for compassion,
your hands for charity, your mind for truth,
and your heart for love.
