Life’s Beautiful Journey

“We are the drifters and dancers, sun worshipers and risk takers. The dreamers, the lovers, believers, and change makers.” – Frankie Kerr-Dineen


“What could be more luxurious than a sofa, a book, and a cup of coffee?” – Anthony Trollope


“Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have titles until much later.” – Bob Goff


“Try to make at least one person happy every day, and then in 10 years you may have made 3,650 persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contribution to the fund of general enjoyment.” – Sydney Smith


“When we are able to get closer again, let’s promise to be grateful for: hugging, happy hour with friends, rooting for our favorite team, the school bus, plays, shaking hands with a stranger, festivals, eating at our favorite restaurants, weddings, running into neighbors at the park, concerts, the subway, high fives.” –@bluezones


“Travel. Make memories. Have adventures. Because I guarantee that when you’re 85 and on your death bed you won’t think about that flashy car you bought, or the twenty pairs of designer shoes you owned. But you will think about that time you got lost in your favourite city. The nights spent falling in love under the stars and all the beautiful people you met along the way. You’ll think of the moments that made you feel truly alive. And at the very end, those memories will be the only valuable possessions you own.” -EKP


“There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle.” – Robert Alden


“I do not want to be beautiful. I want to be contagious and radiant. I want to leave a mark not only on the world but on souls. I want to have something to offer; something more than the superficial idea that my beauty is all that I have to give. I have so much more.” -Michael Bliss

    Life is most certainly beautiful. Even the parts we do not like to see. There is beauty in everything you see if you look hard enough and at the small parts too!

    Michael Bliss’s quote I can identify with the most. I never really looked at myself as being beautiful on the outside but my heart is so beautiful I can stop people in their tracks and make them remember me in a way that is always treasured. I have been told that I was a beautiful graceful woman who puts others needs and cares before my own. And I do simply because I love doing it. To know that I have given them something to smile about or feel good about does my heart and soul wonders. That’s my everyday magic.
