My blog is about being happy & friends. I have listed these quotes, as they are quotes that somehow relate to me. I found these to express how I feel, as at times it is hard for me to put down in writing exactly how I feel. I would like to share these with you.

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”

“I've got nothing to do today but smile.”

"Fall seven times, stand up eight."

“You can't be happy unless you're unhappy sometimes."

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving."

"It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop."

"The day you give up on your dreams is the day you give up on yourself."

"When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place."

"No one has the power to shatter your dreams unless you give it to them."

"Courage doesn't always roar, sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering ‘I will try again tomorrow."

"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."

The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are.

I regret those times when I've chosen the dark side. I've wasted enough time not being happy.

It took me ages to grow into being a woman, into being happy with it.

I think by being happy it actually affects the way that I look too.

Being happy never goes out of style.

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.

Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.

The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are.

The friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.

A quarrel between friends, when made up, adds a new tie to friendship.

The best time to make friends is before you need them.

I truly believe that happiness & friendship goes hand in hand. After many years of being unhappy about myself, isolating myself, and believing that in order to have friends I would have act like how I thought they would like me to act and therefore having no friends at all. I also thought that no one would like me for a friend just by being "me". How things have changed for me. I have met many wonderful people at the school where I am a foster grandma, many of whom have become very dear friends, and what is really amazing to me is the fact they actually like me for just "me". Then I joined SP. Even though I have never met any of you, I feel like I have known some of you for a long time. I get support, kindness, understanding, and most of all friendship from you. Because of that, I have known happiness, and that is the most important thing of it all.
