~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 - April 27, 1882)
From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.
~ Anais Nin (February 21, 1903 - January 14, 1977)
