Be strong. Believe.

"When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others." - Unknown

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as you'll die today." - James Dean

Don't think that it's such a terrible thing to get sad or down or to stop believing in sunshine for a while. Don't worry too much if you feel empty or lost or can't make yourself want to smile.
Don't think that it's not okay to want to sit a day out, or to be scared or tired or blue. Everybody gets sad sometimes. And crying and hurting - just like laughing and dreaming - are just things that people do. - Ashley Rice

The Waiting By Kim Warren

We all at some point in our life just want to be in love. We keep looking for it but can't find it. We just have to sit back, and wait. Love will come to us when we least expect it.

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Vincent van Gogh

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

"Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as i seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be." - Karen Ravn

Believe - Yellowcard
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Be strong. Believe.
Be strong. Believe.

What If
What if I would have done this
or that
What if I would have said this
or that
What if I would have said yes
or no

We all have our what ifs, but we can not let our selfs dwell on them. It is time to move on, and put them in past. What happened happened, and sadly we can not go back in time and change our decisions and actions. Forget the past, and start to live in the present. Do not worry about the future. Just enjoy every moment of the present, because you never know when it could be taken away.

"If we all hold hands and take our problems one step at a time - we will get through it together."
- R. Curls

All you have to do is pray, and God will help you find your way.

I learned this lesson today. I had a couple of bad days in a row, and I felt so confused and unsure of everything. I felt like my friendships were falling apart, and that this blog was getting no where. The past week I hadn't recieved any inspiration, and it didn't help my already slump. So I prayed to God asking him for help in getting the word out there about my blog. And when I came on today after school I had a comment from a fellow blogger who I had told about my blog. Saying " Thank-you Joy! thank-you for finding me and my Blog and welcoming me to yours. It is truly beautiful and VERY inspirational. Stephanie" This truly made my day, and gave me hope that this blog is actually helping people. God really can work magic. - Joy Pedrow

If you also have an inspirational story, send it in! You can help inspire someone. =]

Thanks Joy

Oh Joy! I just posted on my Blog about what a week it has been for me. I went to yours and found a quote I loved and will make sure I make some changes for tomorrow, so I can get out of this slump.

Then I read your post about my comments to you! How funny! Life is wonderful, as YOU just made MY day now!

:-) thanks.
