Martini glass When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 
Martini glass Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

Martini glass Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 
Martini glass Believe in miracles. 

Martini glass God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 
Martini glass Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now. 

Martini glass Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 
Martini glass All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

Martini glass Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 
Martini glass If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 

Martini glass Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

Martini glass The best is yet to come...

Martini glass No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.  

Martini glass Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
