“Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!” 
― Steve MaraboliLife, the Truth, and Being Free
This morning, I randomly found this quote on one of my magazine and it led me to think about life and where I am leading. To be frank, I am not sure where I am right now in my pathway... I know I am still walking through a pathway looking for something that can lead me to happiness. Even though I smile each day or even cry... these emotions are permanent since I haven't cross the mid point of my lifes journey. Just like me I know there are many you out there with the same emotions and feelings, I know it's hard but just remember with every rain there comes a rainbow and in other words each step or choices we make in life are just small stepping stones that leads to our future. Its long and very tiring but it's a journey that makes tests all our capabilities. Since 2013 is coming to an end, I thought this would be a great quote for each of us to remind ourselves about our achievements and errors we have committed in the past months. So, what do you guys think about the quote and also about your road to success?

Well on that, hope you all have a stunning weekend and enjoy!!
