Some of the best words of wisdom and life lessons
  1. "I believe that we each have a greater purpose in our lives. God didn't put us on this Earth for no reason. Find this purpose and let it guide your life; and help others as often as possible. To know that one life has breathed a little easier because of you. That is success."-My Great Grandfather
    My little 6 year old self asked my great grandpa what success was. I don't know why, but it's one of the clearest memories I have of him. I didn't think much of it as I sat in his lap and played mahjong on his computer, but now it is one of the best pieces of advice I've ever gotten. He truly was an amazing man and I wish I had been a little older before he passed so I could have remembered more of his wisdom.
  2. "I don't totally agree with the saying 'Life's too short to be anything but happy'. Although yes, life can be short and taken away so quickly, most of us live long lives. Therefor I believe that life is too long to not be happy. A long life is wonderful, if spent happy"-My Dad
    My Dad is another person who is full of pretty good life lessons. He doesn't always come off as that wise and sagacious, but he does have some pretty good advice if you just listen to him.
  3. "Never be afraid to be exactly who you are. Learn to love yourself and others will love you too. God made you perfect and never let anyone tell you any different."-My Mom
    My mom is another person full of life quotes and encouragement. She encourages me to be myself and really helped me gain the confidence to chase my dreams. This confidence I hold onto tenaciously and thank her dearly for it.
