I see life very simply. Maybe I'm just naive? Honestly, at this point in my life I really don't know yet. But I just don't see why things need to be complicated or hard.
Things are the way they are. If you don't like them, change them.
Be a good person, find your happiness in the happiness of others and just live and let live.
Honesty is the best policy. Be true to yourself and others and you won't attract drama.
Always look on the bright side of life. Dwelling on negativity will only leave you feeling low. A shot of sunshine will always give you a kick.
Stand up for what you believe in but don't force it on others. Being heard is more important than being agreed with and other ideas and opinions only serve to broaden your perspective so keep an open mind.
Be generous. Of love. Of mind. Of spirit. Of knowledge and, if you can, of material things too. Giving feels good.
Count your blessings. Always, but especially while they're there to count. When it feels like there are few, remember the long list you had until they come back again. They always come back.
Always do your best but don't beat yourself up when your best isn't enough. Learn from your mistakes and do better next time.
It's a pretty simple way to live. Generally, it'll keep you pretty happy. But things aren't always that simple.
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, that simple life doesn't feel so happily ever after. But the road is long and when you can't see what's on the horizon, you just have to trust that this simple little life is leading you in the right direction.
When you feel like your fading, doubting, changing. Just keep walking until you come to the next fork in the road.
Go with what feels right. Don't over think it. Just keep it simple sweetie.
