I admire people who choose to smile after all the things they’ve been through.

Being positive isn’t pretending that everything is good. It’s seeing the good in everything.

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

1. Remind yourself that you are NOT your feelings.

2. Don’t sweat the small stuff; choose to focus on what matters. Ignore or overlook the petty things, and grievances.

3. Feel the power as you learn to take control of your reactions. You’re not just a puppet, where someone pulls your strings.

4. Don’t agree with other peoples’ opinions of your value, or the way they rate your actions, your motives or achievements. Don’t let them be your judge, or the one who sets your worth.

5. Don’t compare yourself to others as we’re all different and unique. Set yourself some goals to go for, and celebrate when you succeed.

6. Accept that life’s a journey, and we grow and change with time. We don’t start off being perfect – so expect to get things wrong.

7. Love yourself completely and unconditionally. You’re a worthwhile individual – and you’ll get there in the end.

I admire people who choose to smile after all the things they’ve been through.

1. Be generous with your smiles

2. Listen attentively when people talk to you.

3. Be warm and friendly. If you don’t know the people in the group, be the first one to introduce yourself.

4. Pay others compliments (make sure they are genuine – and not fake).

5. Be considerate and polite to both friends and strangers.

6. If you’re going to a party or social event, offer to be the designated driver.

7. Turn up on time (or arrive a few minutes early).

8. Overlook minor mistakes.

9. Never shame or embarrass others.

10. Give people the benefit of the doubt. If uncertain, think the best, not the worst of others.

She had this way of always finding the good and believing in everything despite all that she had seen. And that is what I loved the most – the pure magic of her undying hope.
