Quote of the Week

Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us.

~Emery Allen

Quote of the Week

Experience is the teacher of all things.

~Julius Caesar

Quote of the Week

I love the fact that I can make people happy, in any form. Even if it’s just an hour of their lives, if I can make them feel lucky or make them feel good, or bring a smile to a sour face, that to me is worthwhile.

~Freddy Mercury

Quote of the Week

Feelings come and feelings go. There is no need to fear them and no need to crave them. Be open to your feelings and experience them while they are here. Then be open to the feelings that will come next. Your feelings are a part of your experience. Yet no mere feeling, however intense it may seem, is your permanent reality.

~Ralph Marston

Quote of the Week

When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.

~Paulo Coelho

A Six-Word Story

Rereading old conversations makes me smile.

Quote of the Week

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something
bigger and better than your current situation.

~Brian Tracy

Quote of the Week

There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don’t help them by doing the job yourself.

~Laurell K. Hamilton

Quote of the Week

The best relationships in our lives are the best not because they have been the happiest ones, they are that way because they have stayed strong through the most tormentful of storms.

~Pandora Poikilos

A Six-Word Story

Someday, everything’s gonna be better. Everything.

Quote of the Week

Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.

Quote of the Week

Respect other people’s feelings. It might mean nothing to you, but it could mean everything to them.

~Roy T. Bennett

Quote of the Week

If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down on you anyhow. And if you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.

~Mitch Albom

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s given topic is Books on My TBR I Predict Will Be 5-Star Reads.

So here are the books on my TBR which I think I’ll be giving 5-star ratings for no specific reason at the moment! 😉 I just think they’d be great reads and would deserve a 5-star. 🙂

Have you read any of these books? Which ones were 5-star reads for you? Or do you plan to read them soon, too?

Thanks a lot for reading and I’m looking forward to reading all your TTTs! Just drop a link on the comment section so I can check your posts or share your list in the comments section.

Happy Tuesday, homo sapiens!

Dear Self,

You’re another year older but things are continuously changing for the better, right? Though you’ve faced too much challenges this past year and your patience was tested and run out, you were able to make it! Hopefully, the tough moments will soon stop. Focus to maintain the happiness you’ve attained. Take better care of yourself because it won’t be easy growing old. 😉 Appreciate life more and continue to be grateful for everything, always.

Now get ready for the hugs and kisses, birthday wishes and birthday shenanigans. It’s going to be a hell of a day.

Cheers!

~Self

Quote of the Week

Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and forgiving heart. Be the one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.

Quote of the Week

To be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, in the right way – that is not easy.

~Aristotle

Quote of the Week

You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.

~Winston Churchill

Quote of the Week

Who can remember pain once it’s over? All that remains of it is a shadow, not in the mind even, in the flesh. Pain marks you, but too deep to see.

~Margaret Atwood

A Six-Word Story

She’s terrible in expressing her feelings.

Quote of the Week

When one has a grateful heart, life is so beautiful.

~Roy T. Bennett

Quote of the Week

The way sadness works is one of the strange riddles of the world. If you are stricken with a great sadness, you may feel as if you have been set aflame, not only because of the enormous pain, but also because your sadness may spread over your life, like smoke from an enormous fire. You might find it difficult to see anything but your own sadness, the way smoke can cover a landscape so that all anyone can see is black. You may find that if someone pours water all over you, you are damp and distracted, but not cured of your sadness, the way a fire department can douse a fire but never recover what has been burnt down.

~Lemony Snicket
