The Little Things: You've got to learn to appreciate the little things in life; like a good cup of coffee, or a fresh-smelling flower, or the smile of a stranger as you pass on the streets. the world is a monumental beast, frightening and discouraging, but in small doses, it is the most beautiful things you'll ever discover
Some people think they are ENTITLED to behave badly towards you. That you are there to pander to them and endure their moods and whims. When you refuse, suddenly you'll be "mean" and they'll slander you at every opportunity. This is a pattern they are trapped in and enjoy repeating. Cut off their attention supply - it's the only thing that works.
Life may wreck your plans when your plans are about to wreck you. For everything you’ve lost, you’ve gained something else. You don’t have to accept it; it’s just easier if you do. When you try to control too much, you enjoy too little. Sometimes you simply need to take a deep breath and appreciate what is. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/07/02/23-things-people-who-love-their-lives-are-doing-differently/
