“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” ― C.S. Lewis
The people who love you should make you want to be better.
Not for them, but for you.
Better means being your authentic self: true to self, loving and kind.
Better doesn’t compare with others.
Better is forgiving, of others and of self.
Better is generous with time and comfort.
Better converts dreams to moments in time.
Better is patient, with others and with self.
Better learns from the past.
Better knows there’s the possibility to be wrong.
Better is grateful for gifts non-deserved.
Better sees courage in the nervous.
Sees passion in fear.
Sees work in luck.
Sees miracles in the mundane.
You don’t need love to be better.
But it sure helps.
“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored”
— Earl Nightingale
