Sometimes the most simple times of life can be the best
of times. If you look at a child and the simple things that
make their world the happiest it can be, its done by simple things.
Jumping rope, playing ball, riding a bike, or climbing a tree 
brings about fun and laughter. They live in a life of simplicity.
As adults we complicate things by the need to have more or the
latest thing available to us. Some people judge their life by
the title they have, the money they make, or the material 
possessions that they own. While there are others who don't
judge their life at all, they just live it one moment at a time
soaking in every single moment. No one is guaranteed the next
moment in life. A person can have the smallest space and still
be creative. A person doesn't have to have the finest of
vehicles to get where they're going. We tend to think the more
we have and the bigger we have will bring us more 
happiness. It might, momentarily. True happiness comes
from within. Each day is a celebration of being alive. 
Life is a gift, not to be taken lightly. Each life and each
day we are given is a blessing. Every moment is a blessing.
Don't waste it on trivial things. The beautiful thing
about life is we are all the same. We all bleed the same, we 
all have emotions, and we all share space on this vast world.
I might not know someone by name, but I assure you that 
that person feels joy, pain, and all the other emotions
that I do. Remember to live each day with gratitude for
all the blessings you have and all the people that you 
are blessed with in your life.

Have YOU ever just known something without knowing
how or why YOU are so certain about that thing? 
Have YOU ever ignored your gut only to find YOU should
have just listened? There is a specific reason YOU are YOU.
YOU have a purpose. YOU have something to offer this
world that no one else can. Do YOU ever catch yourself
trying to be like someone else? Do YOU ever catch 
yourself trying to live up to someone else's standards
only to find out you've been ignoring what nature
has been saying all along? Be confident in knowing
your interests interest YOU for a reason. That when YOU 
follow your passions YOU give yourself the best 
opportunity to reach your full potential. YOU do 
have something great to offer that takes a little
self-investigation to determine what exactly
that is. So start seeing yourself for the valuable
asset YOU are. Remember that YOU must put forth
the time and effort to become the person YOU want
to be and live the life of your dreams. YOU owe
it to yourself to push to be the best YOU possible.

Hopes and dreams are a big part of progress in this world.
The biggest success stories of the richest people on the
planet started with someone thinking, hoping, and dreaming.
Then it generally took a lot of hard work, of course,
but that was after the hopes and dreams took hold. People
in any kind of business, or for life in general need to keep
their hopes and dreams alive in order to be productive
and successful. It is not easy for most people to persue
their hopes and dreams with the passion necessary to
become wildly successful. There are too many obstacles
which come into every person's life to bring an abrupt
end to those aspirations, which seemed so attainable 
in one's. It is not simple to bring an idea to a 
successful end. It is easy to become discouraged
and depressed about a situation when things are not
going well. It may be difficult to hold on to hopes 
and dreams a person has instilled into his/her
own mind and thinking. It is important to keep 
hoping and dreaming no matter how dismal the
present may be and the future may appear. 
Nothing is achieved or accomplished without first
being a thought in the mind of a person. 
Don't abandon your hopes and dreams. They are
necessary for your success and happiness!
