Shells, Shells, Shells

I was messing around with lighting to try out some different effects with some of our shell collection (way too many over the years, lol).

I LOVE THIS!

Be brave. Be strong. Be happy. Be free.

I forgive people, but that doesn’t mean I trust them. I just don’t have time to hate people who hurt me, because I’m too busy loving people who love me. The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. The first to move forward is the happiest. Be brave. Be strong. Be happy. Be free.

Refuse to be unhappy; be cheerful instead.

Refuse to let your troubles multiply; just take the one by one.

Refuse to complain about things; learn to improve your surroundings

and create your world the way you believe it should be.

Refuse to dwell on the mistakes or disappointments

that are sometimes a part of life;

instead learn how you can make things better.

Be optimistic.

Be energetic and positive about the things you do,

and always hope for the best.

Believe in yourself at all times and in all aspects of your life.

Before you know it , those wonderful dreams

you have believed in all your life will come true,

and your life will be the happy and successful life

that it was meant to be.
