    I love that quote too, Zyni - it always makes me try and remember that you just don't know what's going on in a person's life behind closed doors all the time. Even people with a seemingly perfect life often have struggles - we are human after all!

    @Zyni, I just saw that same saying in a Facebook post, I will also post it here when I find it. It's true isn't it? You'll never know what problems they are facing, right? So we should always be kind to one another and not treat other people rudely or harshly.

    Think positive, anything else won't turn out better.

    that's from me. I can't think of a better inspirational message.

    I was feeling a little down and I came here to be inspired and I am. Thank you all for those wonderful quotes. I have nothing to add right now, but I will be back.

    So I am back her this morning and this is one of the quotes I want to make live in my own case. I am trying desperately to ward off that miserable feeling. If it's true being strong requires the same amount of work, I am going to choose strength. I am going to add this.

    I enjoy reading the quotes here. :)
    Just have this thought now: Let go of the things and people who does not make you feel valued and real happy.

    If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. — Michael Jordan

    Oh, your Michael Jordan quote made me think of two other quotes I love from him - and I think they can both be applied to battling addiction! He has a great way of wording things.

    "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

    "I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying."
