With a new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Many times we often blame others or situations for our unhappiness. But this is not true. We are responsible for our own happiness. It all happens only with the way we think. THINKING IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO HORMONE PRODUCTION

All that we are is the result of what we have thought
