Indifferent to whether your mood is grumpy or cheerful,

The success of love is in the loving -

- Mother Teresa

Losing, in a curious way, is winning.

You can learn how to let go of the past.
Whether you have experienced a break up

Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

we would be grateful for everything we had each day -
regardless of whether it was more or less than yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude, I can be grateful for all the people,

the health, that I am blessed with today,
regardless of what I had yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude,
I can be grateful each day for the gift of life itself.

Anger and Danger are intimately intertwined.
An angry person is a dangerous person,
whether that person crosses our path
or whether the angry person is ourself.

we tend to exhibit anger as well as fear.
We look for someone to blame for the dangerous situation,
and direct our anger toward them.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
