Happiness is found in little things and we need to celebrate all that is good in our lives.

We need to take each day and celebrate our dreams and aspirations. 

If you've got a dream, believe in it!

If you've got talent, recognize it! 

Use your determination. Tap into it!  hy wait for good things to happen when you can make them happen now? 

Give your future a makeover and you will have an amazing future ahead of you.

Let spring renew you too!

Let spring bring out the best in you. This is the time to look at yourself in a whole new light, to take a cue from Mother Nature and allow yourself to bloom. 

That dream you set aside or tried to talk yourself out of is still there, ready for you to flip the switch. And  no matter how crazy life gets, the best time is always right now. Why postpone happiness?

Our dreams can be blueprints for a beautiful future. 

There is much to celebrate about you. Why worry about mistakes you make, missteps you take or "flaws" you may have? Everyone has slight imperfections. They just show the world we're one-of-a-kind originals, not copies, and the list of what makes you likeable and loveable is always growing.

People who live their dreams take  themselves seriously and take charge. They look ahead more than they look back. They choose hope over self-doubt, and they know deep down, that they have what it takes to succeed.

You know what really matters. Go for it.

You will succeed in many ways. Just as there is no limit to the number of stars in the sky, there is no limit on what you can accomplish - especially with all you bring to any opportunity.

You have greatness in you.

You're right on time for success. 

You haven't missed the boat, waited too long, tried to hard or done anything wrong. Every ounce of effort you've poured into your dreams has prepared you for this moment, the moment when everything will come together.

Happiness isn't a reward you have to work for, wait for or simply wish for. And it is not something to put yourself last in line for.

Expect the best from each day and you won't be disappointed.

You don't have to be rich, lucky or connected for your dreams to come true. You don't even have to be the absolute best at anything. Real success only has two main ingredients: hope and determination, which means you're already on your way. We need to seek out opportunities to strengthen our talents and natural abilities.

 Some of the best paths in life are completely unexpected and 100% free.

Strength doesn't always look like we expect it to and believing in someone is the best gift we can give.

We have the power to make positive changes. Why talk yourself out of success when you can talk yourself into it?

Follow your dreams, not your doubts.

Worrying isn't worth it. It is true that life will present you with challenges - both big and small - but you can meet them all. Paths may have obstacles, too, but you can find a way around them. And setbacks, they can save you time to reflect, recharge and rest your inner GPS; go chart a new route to your dreams.

Challenges make you more confident than before.

When you put hope in charge, good things can happen.

Expect more from life, and you'll get it.

The future can bring you great things. You have everything you need to succeed. You 're tougher than any trouble, able to outsmart any problem and more than equal to any challenge. 

And when there is an obstacle in your path, you can find a way around it. Positive thinking is more powerful than you think.

Life is a stream of gifts. Some just appear, without ribbons or bows. Others need to be unwrapped. Still others take a little while to notice.  But they keep coming, some too many to count. Look ahead with optimism. There is so much to look forward to!
