I don’t want to dream through our lives together, don’t want to sleep in, don’t want to put on my sunglasses and pretend that life’s a vacation. The fantasy is that I want to exist in reality; the fantasy is to be there for someone on a Sunday morning but also on a Tuesday night, when the haze and laze of the weekend has worn thin and seems far away as ever. I want a Tuesday kind of love."
Be thankful you don’t have everything you desire, if you did, what would you have to look forward to? Be thankful when you don’t know something, it gives you the opportunity to learn. Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow. Be thankful for your limitations, they give you opportunities for improvement. Be thankful for each new challenge, it will build your strength and character. Be thankful for your mistakes, they will teach you valuable lessons. Be thankful when you are tired and weary, it means you’ve made a difference. It is easy to be thankful for the good things, a life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for setbacks. Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings."
