'Inspirational messages to refresh the spirit and boost the emotional bank account'
Don't determine your worth by comparing yourself with others, it is because we are different that each of us is special.
Don't set your goals by what other people deem important, only you know what is best for you.
Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart, cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.
Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future, by living your life one day at a time you live all the days of your life.
Don't give up when you still have something to give, nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect; it is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.
Don't be afraid to encounter risks, it is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give love, the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly, and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Don't dismiss your dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope; to be without hope is to be without purpose.
Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you're going.
Life is not a race, but a journey - to be savoured each step of the way.

'Who am I today?' I ask . . . and I wonder if I'll ever know.
I know the past has shaped me now, though the past was long ago.
The little moments form a blur, the times both happy and sad.
All the people I once knew, and the things I used to have.
They all helped me to become where, what, and who I am now.
And everything has influenced me . . . though I'm not sure exactly how.
But I'm thankful for the memories, from everyone I've ever met.
People I miss and people I love, even people I'd like to forget.
For these memories have helped me grow, they've made me calm, yet strong.
And now there's a story to my life, that they've been writing all along.
So, thank you for the memories, without them, who would I be?
Because somewhere in my memories are the things that define me.
