Friday Frills

It's not always easy to know which path to follow,
which decision to make, or what to do.

Life is a series of new horizons, new hopes, new days, 
and changes that come to you.
And we all need some help with these things from time to time.

Remember this: Dream it. Do it.
And discover how special you are.
Be Positive. For your attitude will affect the outcome of many things.

Ask for help when you need it.
Seek the wisdom the world holds...and hold on to it.
Make some progress every single day.
Begin. Believe. And become.

Give yourself all the credit you're due.
Don't shortchange your qualities, your abilities,
or any of the things that are so unique about you.

Remember how precious life can be.
Imagine. Invest the time it takes to reach out for your dreams;
It will bring you happiness that no money on earth can buy.
Don't be afraid. No mountain is too big to climb if you do it at your own pace.

What's the best thing to do?
That's simple:
Do your best
And everything else will fall into place.

I love this so much Sam! It is so true. I do believe that the time invested in doing things you love is far greater than any amount of money coming in. I wish you a wonderful Friday dear. I will be on vacation and might not be able to stop by for next week, but I will return! xx Pip

Morning Sam! Your friday frills are my personal weekly inspiration, enjoy read your quotes since they make me think and be positive. Maybe I took it for granted but have to say thank you for the effort you put every week to find the perfect "frills" to share with us:) Especially, love these words: dream it, do it. It reminds what also Disney said, if you can dream you can do it. Love that quote so so much, one of my fav indeed. Everyday we face challenges, cause also just wake up and be alive everyday is. Life isnt easy at all, there could be happy moments as turns in sad ones and viceversa. I think that in every we are going through, we have to pull the best of us, either if we are happy or upset. Of course is hard especially when you are down, but we have to always keep in mind that after fights always come a rest moment and never give up. If you are negative and gloomy also your life is affected by your mood, so also in the darker days always smile and the life will shine again:) Happy Friday my dear! Hugs! xo

Very true because all you can really do is your best! I wish I could have taken a photo like that when I was in Paris--maybe next time. Happy weekend, Sam!

Life is a constant lesson in which you learn that sometimes is great to respond with your heart but most of the times is greater to respond with your ming.

Tanya W. said...

Hi sweetie, No doubt about that no money can buy the happiness, I'm 100% agree. Because I always think the happiness is worthy than the money, the money is for living and to pay the bill only for me. I love the beautiful words of the quote, they are such life inspiration to me. Wish you a lovely weekend dear Sam..

Denise said...

Couldn't come here yesterday, but who am I without your Friday Frills? I needed my fix :) to remind me of life. You do it so well! Next week I swear I will send news. I loved that "life bring changes, ask for help when you need it". Yes. Some people tend to play strong, or stronger than they really are, thinking they will be badly judged if they ask for help. Society is always saying "be strong!" I also loved "Begin. Believe. Become!" And "don't undermine yourself". You really know how to uplift my weekend! And many other people's weekends too! Bless you soul, my dear friend!

LaTasha Bunting said...

My lovely Sam!

You have some of the most inspiring Friday Frills! I just love them! They are always the best! I even look through some of your older ones every now and then! Your Friday Frills are the best! You are such a beautiful, sweet, kind, and inspiring person! You have such a beautiful heart! I appreciate you, your kind comments, and your wonderful blog! :)

Love always,

Ivana said...

My dear Sam, you can't even imagine how wonderfully spot on this quote is for me! I've been through a rough patch lately, and I feel that somehow I've fallen off the track of fulfilling my dreams, just going with the flow, letting the life unfold itself, and doing nothing to influence the things. These words made me a little weepy, but also very motivated. "Do your best and everything else will fall into place" is just what I need to repeat to myself right now. And I would add one last sentence. "Stop dreaming and start doing."

Hope you're having a lovely day, sweetie!

xx Ivana
