Easter is one of my favorite days of the year. It is a very encouraging day because spring is in the air, flowers are blooming, and taxes are behind me. The ultimate joy of Easter is the resurrection. Some of your dreams may have fallen by the wayside or maybe you lost focus on what's important. Don’t let that discourage you because your dreams can be resurrected. Easter is a good day to bring your dreams back to life because Easter brings life! I encourage you to resurrect some things that you let die in your life on this day. Bring back the joy, happiness and freedom that once made you feel alive. 

Here are 6 powerful quotes that I hope will encourage you bring you hope!


Floral_Each experience of life can make you bitter or better. Each challenge can either make you stronger or break you apart. Every unexpected wave can make you either sink or swim. The choice is always your whether you want to be a victim or victor. Life is what you make of it—with the choices you make every moment. 

Floral_Ablessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows that best and worst of us, and who loves is in spite of all our faults. 

Floral_Scars are beautiful. They are neither something you should feel embarrassed about nor something you should try to hide. Scars are beautiful, in my view, because they show what you have been through, and how you’ve come out of those challenging phases of your life. Never forget that your every scar represents your courage, determination, strength, endurance, and that’s what makes the scars so beautiful. 

Floral_Take good care of your employees, and they’ll take good care of your customers, and the customers, will come back. 


Floral_Enjoy this moment, the present, right now. In the blink of an eye, the world can change, and you may never get your second chance to enjoy such moments again. Time waits for no one. So, go ahead and enjoy the powerful, “Now” right now. Make it a great day! 

Floral_Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself. 

Happy Easter Everyone!

He is risen!
