Hi Friends! Warm Welcome! It is so wonderful to have you here.

I created this blog in 2008 wishing to help motivating my fellow friends in one of those down moments in school, in life, in sickness… through beautiful stories.

Take a moment to browse around!! Wish you all the very best!!!

Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will never change. Only I can change by choosing to do so.

Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today.

Beginning today I will look in the mirror and I will see a person worthy of my respect and admiration. This capable person looking back at me is someone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better.

Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life. I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world and I will unselfishly share this gift with others. I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others.

Beginning today I will take a moment to step off the beaten path and to revel in the mysteries I encounter. I will face challenges with courage and determination. I will overcome what barriers there may be which hinder my quest for growth and self-improvement.

Beginning today I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time. Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love.

Beginning today I walk with renewed faith in human kindness. Regardless of what has gone before, I believe there is hope for a brighter and better future.

Beginning today I will open my mind and my heart. I will welcome new experiences. I will meet new people. I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in an imperfect world. But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles.

Beginning today I am responsible for my own happiness and I will do things that make me happy . . . admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath . . . pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures.

Beginning today I will learn something new; I will try something different; I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer. I will change what I can and the rest I will let go. I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.

    Hi Stephen ..
    I have been using your blog stories for the past four years to motivate my students. Each class I used to start with a story so my students forgot everything in their day today problems enjoy my class. I am thankful for creating such a wonderful blog. Today people are stressed out they don’t have place to share worries and people to motivate.

    I love your stories. I tell these stories to my grandchildren. It is very hard for me to read on the blue background. How I can remove the blue background to read easily. I am not computer savvy, I don’t how to. Please tell me how to make to black and white.
