Not inspirational at all, but I was going by your thread title what makes you feel better i.e. happy.

“My favourite things” song from The Sound of Music. Mum used to sing that to me when I was little.

And “Just of spoonful of sugar” from Mary Poppins which was one of my favourite movies.

Gotta love Julie Andrews 😀

I’m studying for the bar and in general deal with anxiety about performing at work or school and find this poem to always give me strength.



It’s called dont quit and my favorite lines are:

success is failure turned inside out-

the silver tint of the clouds of doubt, 

and you never can tell how close you are,

it may be near when it seems afar,

so stick to the fight when you’re hareest hit,-

it’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.


Hope it encourages a fellow bee!

Don’t let the world change your smile, let your smile change the world.


That always cheers me up…or I keep reminding myself that it’s better to be a good person, than angry…life is too short…

Jason Mraz has always lifted me up in bad times, whether it was through his lyrics/music or through his journal.  He is love and spreads it everywhere.  Some of my favorite quotes:

“You have the power to create endless, beautiful possibilty for yourself.  Nothing is wrong in your world unless you tell yourself it’s wrong.”

“Frustration and Love can’t exist in the same place at the same time, so get real and start doing what you would rather be doing in life.  Love your life.  All of it.  Even the heavy sh-t that happened to you when you were 8.  All of it was and IS perfect.”

“We have to call it ‘love’ because we have to call it something, but it is not a word.  It’s an energy.  It’s an act.  It’s an action.  It’s a natural thing.  EVERYTHING is love, so the only thing that’s not love is our resistance to love, is us trying to be separate from the world.”

“Stress and the need for perfection is a distraction from the beauty, uncertainty, and finality of every moment”

“We choose love.  We choose anger.  We choose happiness.  We choose boredom.  You pick and choose based on the rush you give your body when it experiences a certain emotion.  Spme people, or the lack of some people, help you to trigger these emotions.  So if you want Joy, all you have to do is trigger it yourself.”

plus about a million more…
