“For her, everyday was the same, and when everyday is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day the sun rises.”—The Alchemist Pg. 27 (via maritess-r)
“When things are bad, we take comfort in the thought that they could always get worse. And when they are, we find hope in the thought that things are so bad they have to get better.”—Malcolm S. Forbes (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
People with unkind, hurt hearts, hurt people. People with happy hearts, make others happy. This does not mean if you are hurting, that you will hurt people, it just means that those that say hurtful things, usually don’t have a healthy, happy, or kind heart to start with. I’m sure some unkind people have spilled their toxic juices on you….AKA their anger, hurt sadness, built up mean emotions. Maybe it’s a friend, family member, co-worker, or even a stranger, but the world is filled with people that have “sick and damaged” hearts and minds, and all they know is how to spit out more of what’s inside them. What’s inside a can of soda is what comes out when you shake it up…Soda on the inside equals soda on the outside! Same thing with people, whatever is on the inside comes out…if they are miserable and mean, all those same things will come out of their mouths…hurtful words and actions! Let your hearts be joyful! CHOOSE to be happy! CHOOSE to be kind! Choose to only let words that enourage, words that will encourage someone, lift someone’s spirits, come out of your mouth.
