Wonderful Wednesday

Y'all thought I forgot didn't you?! Yea, yea, I know I'm a little late posting, but it's just because I was pumping up for how good it was going to be today!
Don't get too excited.
Just pulled some of my favorite quotes from Pinterest to share.
Here's my board.

Living with two invisible illnesses I can really relate to this quote (rheumatoid arthritis and infertility).
Two illnesses one could not see visibly but they affect my every day life.
We never know what others are dealing with, do we? The pain of not meeting life goals, the loss of a loved one or a pet, something simple like not hearing back from that date last night or the shop around the corner running out of our favorite ice cream.
We just really never know what another person is dealing with, even when they share, we can't possibly relate to how it feels.
 
So it's best to choose to be kind.

Only the Lord can know our heart and if our minds are in the right or wrong place.
He knows if we have good intentions or bad ones. Only He can truly judge us on those choices we make.
This quote makes me thankful for the Gospel and my testimony of Jesus Christ.

I posted this fantastic quote, "Think the best of each other, especially of those you say you love. Assume the good and doubt the bad." from Elder Holland today on Facebook.
 I rarely "post" things, but when I do it's because I feel really inspired to uplift my friends to share something hopeful and happy.
Too much of social media is filled with us expressing negative thoughts, we need to use the Internet for good (thanks Al Fox).
 
There have been times in my lives when I was surrounded by people who uplifted and motivated me to be better. I've also had times in my life involving people who survived on drama, back biting, gossip, and making poor decisions.
 
My mom always taught me that people who made fun of me or my friends were "jealous" that they were bored and needed the drama in their lives.
I would roll my eyes like most 5th graders do...jealous of me, yea right!
(I was a young eye roller)
 
But the older I get and the more friends I make I have learned a simple truth, thanks to my momma.
"You make more friends with honey than vinegar" and as my aunt says, "you have to be a friend to have a friend".
Goodness gracious, I could fill a whole post up on what my momma taught me!
 
How simple would it be to step back from the people who drag us down and cling to those who inspire us to do better?
 
I have to leave y'all today with a hopeful quote.
 
It is so much easier to choose happiness.
To choose joy and excitement.
 
Despair and depression are exhausting.
 
Choose hope and be happy!!!
 
Hugs to you my sweet readers, hope y'all have had a wonderful Wednesday!
