    If you take care of the small things, the big things take care of themselves. You can gain more control over your life by paying closer attention to the little things.

    Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in our hearts.

    Anyone needing a reminder to take baby steps? (me!)

    Dream big, but at the same time, always minimize the things you want to accomplish so that they never appear overwhelming or daunting. The ocean started as a drop. An uncontrolled fire started as a single flame. No matter how many steps are required to complete your goal, it starts off with just one...

    I have this on my camera roll on my iPad, I think it's cute and sweet, plus it's Elmo, who doesn't love him and Sesame Street?

    "The secret is that Elmo knows life is hard, and sometimes you can feel alone and afraid. But your attitude determines everything. Stay positive and do something nice for someone. You are all absolutely amazing and Elmo loves every single one of you the way you are. Share this with someone you love, and remember..... Stay positive. Love, Elmo."

    Aw thank you so much for your kind words Klienekindt, it's lovely to come back to nice things like that. It means a lot to me.

    I'm glad to be back too, it's nice to return.

    I don't think of myself in that way but thank you very much, you're a beautiful person who "touches" everyone's heart though too!

    Thanks, I saw that Elmo quote online so I saved it on my iPad, it's so cute and sweet. Good idea about the Diary.

    This thread is inspiring and uplifting. Thanks for welcoming me back, I appreciate it.

    I missed talking to everyone, hope you're well. Take care, love and hugs always.

    Strength is not thinking that you will always be able to prevent everything from falling apart.
    It is knowing you have the power to rebuild if it does,
    that you will move endlessly toward your own horizon,
    no matter how many roads you must take there.

    Hi Birdy,

    Those words from Brianna reminded me of a few lines from

    ´If’ by Rudyard Kipling.

    It feels like there are times when in life, we have to stoop, rebuild with our worn out tools 🙂.... and not listen to those ‘knaves’ in our heads, distorting our truths....

    « If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

    And treat those two impostors just the same;

    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools: »
