I am not a badge of honour, I am not a racist smear, I am not a fashion statement, To be worn but once a year, I am not glorification Of conflict or of war. I am not a paper ornament A token, I am more. I am a loving memory, Of a father or a son, A permanent reminder Of each and every one. Im paper or enamel I’m old or shining new, I’m a way of saying thank you, To every one of you. I am a simple poppy A reminder to you all, That courage faith and honour, Will stand where heroes fall. We Will Remember Them - today and every day

Kylie Jenner releases a lip gloss. David Beckham has a new fragrance. Dre has new headphones. Beyonce releases a new clothes line. And people are all over it. Why are we so quick to support someone with plenty of money who we don't actually know, but find a thousand reasons not to support someone we know? When you support small businesses, when you support your friends - you are supporting a dream, you are helping a family - you are being a good friend #Smallbusiness #smallbusinessdevelopment #smallbusinessbiggoals #smallbusinessfact #smallbusinesspromotion #smallbusinessny #smallbusiness #Smallbusinessgrowing #smallbusinessbigheart

Be a LEADER, not a "boss". Respect your staff, treat them well and they'll work with you. People, regardless of their role, are still people and everyone is equal in their importance. Every role contributes. Words that often come out like a well written script in a passionate speech but are seldom remembered and acted on. #work #selfcare #worktolive #quotes #quotestoliveby #MikeMeetsLife

#WorldMentalHealthDay should never be forgotten, it's every day. There's always time to talk, a reason to listen, a hurting heart, an exhausted mind or a warrior closer to you than you think. If this is you - look after yourself, talk to someone. Know that you are stronger than you think. You are powerful, amazing, wonderful and it CAN get better. #quotestoliveby #Quotes #mentalhealthawareness #MikeMeetsLife

Tell your story, it doesn't show weakness, it shows strength. Together we can build a better world where people support each other rather than criticise. We can break the stigma that you should be strong regardless and "snap out of it". Mental illness is a disorder, not a decision. So don't ever doubt your worth. Talk to someone. There's help out there. Let it hurt, let it bleed, let it heal and let it go. In it together. ✌️❤️ https://ift.tt/2pMnBYu #WorldMentalHealthDay18 #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #SelfCare #quotes #MikeMeetsLife

There are times we sit, unhappily waiting for happiness to arrive - but happiness is a choice – not a result. There is nothing that will make you happy unless you choose it, it will not come to you - it can only come from you. It has to be a choice you make, for yourself. It’s the same as I’ve wrote before - you are your own daily mood. You either wake up thinking you’re having “one of them days” where you feel shit all day, and often inadvertently make other people feel it around you or you make a choice to just smile; do what you can do, in the time you are given. And at the end of the day - then enjoy your time, with your family, in front of your TV or doing whatever else you enjoy. Everything is a choice. Your choice. No one can decide for you. You decide for yourself. If you are unhappy, make the choice to be happy. Sometimes you have to go out of your comfort zone. Sometimes you have to make life changing decisions - but everything happens for a reason through the choices that you make. #choice #Happiness #Quotes #MikeMeetsLife

20:48

THINK about how you're about to act. Is what you're about to do something that you'd be happy with if you were on the receiving end? If not, rethink! Treat people how you want to be treat in return. Speak to people how you'd want to be spoken to. Act in a way only you'd be happy with if you were on the receiving end. Know that you're no better than anyone else. Job title, money, age, gender, race, religion doesn't make you any better than any other person. Respect is earned, not given because of any personal or professional attribute.

You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend. #life #fall #rise #mistakes #learn #live #journey #quotes

Looking for positives in every situation will give you a refreshed mindset and will help you cope with things that are sent to try you on a regular basis. Believing in "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" type mentality is a good start! #strength #challenges #life #destroy

If all you do is make sure you treat people right, offer your help even if they don't take it, and show kindness to everyone you meet - you aren't doing half bad. It costs nothing. If only more people did this. #bekind #always #friendship #kindness #goodness

Just a little note to say whatever you're doing, wherever you are, WHOEVER you are: have a wonderful day. Smile, laugh, love and make memories no matter how small. Whilst you may have 1 minute spare, please share my page on Instagram and/or Facebook. I may not reach many people, I may post a load of drivel, but I am trying to help people feel better, be motivated and inspired. It would be great to reach as many people as possible and make this project even more worthwhile.

Everyone's the expert, right? Wrong. Whilst there may be people who are so narrow minded they think they know everything about your situation - no one has the right to judge your decisions. Especially if they don't know the options you had to choose from. The choice is yours, which you need not justify. Your choice. Your life. And if it's a mistake it will be your lesson which you will learn and grow from.

Self care is so important. Never feel trapped, scared, anxious or intimidated by or in the presence of anyone. You are strong, with as much right to anything as the next person. Anxiety and worry isn't healthy. Walk away from anything that causes it. #selfcare #anxious #anxiety

People who attack yourself self-esteem and confidence are trying to drag you DOWN to their level. You may not be aware of your potential but they are. And they attack you out of jealous and hate because their small minds can't comprehend being left behind whilst you fly. Rise above it. Be better than it. You are stronger than you know. #life #confidence #selfesteem #potential #jealousy

A real woman can do it all by herself. But a real man wouldn’t let her. _ A real man is a woman’s best friend. He will never stand her up and never let her down. He will reassure her when she feels insecure and comfort her after a bad day. He will inspire her to do things she never thought she could do. He will make sure she feels like she’s the most beautiful woman in the room and will enable her to be the most confident, sexy, seductive and invincible person alive. _ Real men don’t hurt women, physically or emotionally. #standuptodomesticviolence #domesticviolence #realmen #man #women #love #life

Kids don’t go around stabbing each other because they closed the local youth centre, because the park isn’t fun, because they’re bored, because they grew up in a deprived area or because they “fell in to” the wrong crowd. They do it because they are little shits, with bad parents that don’t bring their children up properly, if at all. Parents that don’t bother disciplining or teaching their children respect and morality. #saynotoknives #knifecrime #children #parents #parenting #livesnotknives #respect #morals #rightandwrong
