“You can look in the mirror and find a million things wrong with yourself. Or you can look in the mirror and think, ‘I feel good, I have my health, and I’m so blessed.’ That’s the way I choose to look at it.” – Isla Fisher

This quote from Isla Fisher is a reminder that it’s easy to find small things wrong with yourself when you look in the mirror. The best way to deal with it is to look at yourself in the mirror and instead of looking at the small things, think about the good things you have in your life.

“I can’t always control my body the way I want to, and I can’t control when I feel good or when I don’t. I can control how clear my mind is. And I can control how willing I am to step up if somebody needs me.” – Michael J. Fox

In this quote, Michael J. Fox tells us he couldn’t always control his body because of his Parkinson’s disease, but he could control his mind, as well as his willingness to help.

“Sometimes all we need is a little pampering to help us feel better.” – Charles M. Schulz
