It can be painful to be honest with yourself, but denying the truth just isn't smart. Honesty can make us grow, while denial holds us back from any improvement.
Enjoy the little things in life because one day you will look back and realise they were the big things.
I remember on a lovely summers day vacationing in Dorset, England, my wife and I were returning from a walk to our accommodation. We decided to race twigs down a tiny stream as we went down a quaint country lane and had a great time.
Each day, at least once, take time to appreciate what you usually take for granted.
I shower every day, often without giving it much thought. Once I hiked for several days without a wash due to circumstances. The hot shower I had at the end of it was heaven.
When someone sincerely apologies, always forgive them. It is unkind to the both of you not to.
Holding onto a hurt when someone makes an effort to put it right is hard for them. The bitterness you harbour inside may be even worse for you.
Winning isn't everything, doing your best is.
Winning feels good but no one wins all the time. We can all do our best though, and in that sense we are always a winner.
