Remember the 5 simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred
2. Free your mind from worries
3. Live simply
4. Give more
5. Expect less

No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Disappointments are like road humps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards. Don't stay on the humps too long. Move on!

When you feel down because you didn't get what you want, just sit tight and be happy, because God is thinking of something better to give you.

When something happens to you, good or bad, consider what it means. There's a purpose to life's events, to teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard.

You can't make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person to realize your worth.

The measure of love is when you love without measure. In life there are very rare chances that you'll meet the person you love and loves you in return. So once you have it don't ever let go, the chance might never come your way again.

It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride. We spend too much time looking for the right person to love or finding fault with those we already love, when instead we should be perfecting the love we give.

When you truly care for someone, you don't look for faults, you don't look for answers, you don't look for mistakes. Instead, you fight mistakes, you accept the faults, and you overlook the excuses.

Never abandon an old friend. You will never find one who can take his place. Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older.

Go Home Earlier

The pressure to work longer hours never seems to end. "Companies would take 24 hours a day if they could," says Laura Stack, author of Leave the Office Earlier. Some tricks to reclaim your life:

1. Nix last-minute interruptions
Close your door ten minutes before quitting, so co-workers with "emergencies" won't drop by. Cubicle-bound? Turn on voice mail and put your bag and coat in a visible spot.

2. Map out tomorrow
Before you leave, prioritise the next day. Plan important tasks for morning so you won't buy yourself a late night.

3, Schedule personal time
Block out "appointments" with your family, your gym or yourself. If someone asks to meet at six o'clock, you can honestly say you're booked.

4. Minimise meeting time
If only part of a meeting is relevant to you, arrange to go first. Say you have another appointment you couldn't reschedule or a pressing deadline.

Secrets of Success

1. Follow your dreams
- don't be frightened of failing because then you will never start.
- and, if you failed, try again.

2. Don't fear your mistakes
- if you don't make mistakes, you'll never learn.
- but, when you do mess up, be the first to admit it.

3. Be accessible
- accessibility helps you earn the confidence of people around you.
- it makes them feel they can talk openly and without fear.

4. Be yourself, but realistic
- no matter what you love, you have got to be a realist.

5. Look beyond the money
- don't do it for the money
- do it to help people
- share the wealth with needy people

Fall Out of Bed

Why, when we twist and turn in our sleep so much, it is rare that we fall out of bed?

Even when you're asleep, your brain is still aware of its surroundings to some extent. It will have remembered how big your bed is and how far your body can safely turn. Should you get too close to the edge, your brain will tell your muscles, and you'll roll backward.

Be warned, though: Your brain will often lose its bearings if you've been drinking or if you're in an unfamiliar bed.
