But what does that mean? It always seems like something is missing.
If you want to be happy, BE.– Leo Tolstoy It’s all about the attitude. Day in and day out, YOU decide. Only you can make the decision to be happy. To be sad. To be miserable. To be satisfied.

Thankful for that spoonful of sugar
nimishathakore: (And the ever-lovely Ms. Claire George.) (And the things that make us distinctly human.) Today I’m thankful for DOZ’s Ted Talks. I learn so much from people I know.

JFK's Unimpressive Harvard Application →
mdnsk: Even though I doubt I’ll ever be POTUS—and my chances of going to Hahvahd are just as likely as my chances of becoming POTUS, mind you—I can say with some degree of certainty that my Hahvahd application was objectively better than JFK’s. His handwriting, though. Wow.
