"Reflect on present blessings and stay happy. Think not upon past misfortunes whose principal home of residence is sadness and bitter regret. Be kinder to self; stay blind to the faults of others and your eyes shall see the shadows of mankind's positive intentions and the substance of his good deeds.
One of my favourite quotations is by the author Leo Tolstoy who said, 'If you want to be happy, be.' My dear mother once told me that because people like certainty, it is as though most seem to prefer the certainty of misery than to risk being happy.
Be like a child, innocent in intent and pure of thought and you shall mature into a good person of purposeful direction and profitable existence. Above all, be who you are, not who the world wants you to be."
