Positivity, happiness, gratitude, and love aren’t accidents.
They don’t come from external things, places, or other people.
Life is lived from moment to moment, and in each successive moment we are blessed to have the opportunity to make a choice about the quality of attention and emotion we’d like to bring.
“The beautiful thing about life is, that we will never reach an age where there is nothing left to learn, see or be; it’s magical really.”
“When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.”
“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.”
“It takes no time for the Universe to manifest what you want. Any time delay your experience is due to your delay in getting to the place of believing, knowing and feeling that you already have it. It is you getting yourself on the frequency of what you want. When you are on that frequency, then what you want will appear.”
“Once I realized the most beautiful things in life may have come from transmuting my greatest pains, I understood that feeling things so deeply is in fact a blessing and not a curse.”
“Get out of your head and into your heart. Think less and feel more.”

“People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.”
― Steve Maraboli,
“The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough”
― Oprah Winfrey
“I have learned that when sadness comes to visit me, all I can do is say ‘I see you.’ I spend some time with it, get up, and say goodbye. I don’t push it away. I own it. And because I own it, I let it go.”
“There is a magnificent, beautiful, wonderful painting in front of you! It is intricate, detailed, a painstaking labor of devotion and love! The colors are like no other, they swim and leap, they trickle and embellish! And yet you choose to fixate your eyes on the small fly which has landed on it! Why do you do such a thing?”
― C. JoyBell C.
“I was looking for someone to inspire me, motivate me, support me, keep me focused…Someone who would love me, cherish me, make me happy and I realized that all along I was looking for myself.”
“There will be no peace until we humble ourselves and admit that we have no idea how life became a thing, no idea what life is, no idea what will happen once our body disappears; there will be no peace until we humble ourselves and admit that none of us know what we are doing, admit that all of us are just pretending, playing this game that we have been told to play before we had the ability to think for ourselves.”
-Kyle D. Jones
“When you like a flower, you just pluck it. But when you love a flower, you water it daily. He who understands this, understands life…”
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
Before I send you off to have an incredible day, I’ll leave you with one final quote.
“Sometimes when I meet old friends, it reminds me how quickly time passes. And it makes me wonder if we’ve utilized our time properly or not. Proper utilization of time is so important. While we have this body, and especially this amazing human brain, I think every minute is something precious. Our day-to-day existence is very much alive with hope, although there is no guarantee of our future. There is no guarantee that tomorrow at this time we will be here. But we are working for that purely on the basis of hope. So, we need to make the best use of our time. I believe that the proper utilization of time is this: if you can, serve other people, other sentient beings. If not, at least refrain from harming them. I think that is the whole basis of my philosophy.
So, let us reflect what is truly of value in life, what gives meaning to our lives, and set our priorities on the basis of that. The purpose of our life needs to be positive. We weren’t born with the purpose of causing trouble, harming others. For our life to be of value, I think we must develop basic good human qualities—warmth, kindness, compassion. Then our life becomes meaningful and more peaceful—happier.”
― Dalai Lama XIV,
As awesome and special as it is to have positive thoughts to guide your day, it's very often extremely difficult allow it actually happen.
The reason being that humans are extremely habitual animals. We repeat the same patterns of thought, emotion, and physical actions so consistently.. if we really knew how habitual we were we'd be stunned.
That's why it's so important to try and develop new habits.
Developing new habits allows you to live in such a way that being able to changebecomes a part of who you are.
In the process of developing a new habit, you learn:
- What is weak in yourself
- What is strong in yourself
- The type of excuses you make
- How to combat the excuses you make through logic and persistence
- That you actually have the ability to change your experience of life
In building a new habit, you learn an incredible amount about yourself. The most important thing you learn is what IS helpful and what ISN'T helpful when it comes to trying to create change.
We built all of our Habit Nest products to help anyone create new lifestyle habits that will in turn give them the self-confidence and ability to change their experience of life in ways they see fit.
