'Inspirational messages to refresh the spirit and boost the emotional bank account'
Advice comes in all shapes and sizes. For instance, someone gave the sage advice - 'If you dance with a grizzly bear, you had better let him lead.' No argument here. Or this, found in a fortune cookie - 'You are a poor, pathetic, gullible fool who seeks advice from bakery products.'
Conrad Hilton, hotelier extraordinaire, was asked on national television if he had one vital bit of advice for listeners. 'Please,' he said, 'place the curtain on the inside of the tub.'
It's been accurately said that there is a lot of advice available for nothing, and most of it is worth about what we paid for it. But here is sound guidance from an unknown author that is worth taking to heart:
If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive; for that person has helped you learn about trust and the importance of caution.
If someone loves you, love back unconditionally; that one is teaching you to love.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience them again.
Talk to people that you have never talked to before . . . and actually listen.
Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high.
Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.
You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.
Most importantly, if you love others, tell them, for you never know what may come tomorrow.
And learn a lesson in life each day you live.
Even some free advice can occasionally be of profit and those who will listen will learn.

I am seldom considered, though I do more to influence everything about you than virtually any one thing in your life. I often control the time you get up in the morning, the time you go to sleep, what you eat and drink and the very thought that runs through your head. I can make you either happy or sad, loving or hateful, cheerful or remorseful, congenial or spiteful and in doing so, control the very capacity that you have for success.
No, you don't often think of me instead you blame the problem I create on the shortcoming of others, or the state of the economy, or your family or a million other reasons. Often at times unable to find anyone else to blame you look for shortcomings within yourself on which to lay the blame.
When my impact on your life fully is considered in your every thought and action, when you are mindful of my awesome power, when you nurture and groom me for positive use in your life, I can become more contagious than the most prolific disease ever witnessed by man. My influence will spread to every person you come in contact with.
Groomed and nurtured in a positive manner there will be no person or obstacle that can stand in the way of my success or fail to be impacted for the better . . . 'I am . . . your attitude'
