I remember reading a story about a frog--dont know it exactly but the jist of it was--
2 frogs fell into a large pot of cream. The sides were too high for them to jump out and it seemed like the end for them. One frog decided to just give up, stopped swimming and drowned. The other decided that maybe it was the death of him, but he would still swim around until he didnt have the strength anymore. who knew? Something might come up to save him. As he was swimming around the cream turned to butter and he jumped out!! Moral of the story: Just keep swimming!!

Those who are content, have enough. those who complain have too much.
A new school of thought in psychology - called Happy Psychology - says the happiest people are people with strong social connections, who get to make use of what they think are their best skills, feel like they contribute in a meaningful way and have a higher sense of purpose.

Often your tasks will be many, And more than you think you can do. Often the road will be rugged And the hills insurmountable, too. But always remember, The hills ahead Are never as steep as they seem, And with Faith in your heart Start upward And climb 'til you reach your dream. For nothing in life that is worthy Is ever too hard to achieve If you have the courage to try it, And you have the faith to believe. For faith is a force that is greater Than knowledge or power or skill, And many defeats turn to triumph If you trust in God's wisdom and will. For faith is a mover of mountains, There's nothing that God cannot do, So, start out today with faith in your heart, And climb 'til your dream comes true!

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, or He'll teach you how to fly!
