that's life



Life changes every minute of everyday. You lose friends. You gain friends. You realize your friend wasn't ever really your friend and the person you used to hate can make a really good friend. You look for love. You find love. You lose love. You realized all along that you've been loved. You laugh. You cry. You laugh so hard that you cry. You do this. You do that. You really wish you hadn't done that. You then learn from that and you're glad that you did. You have your ups. You have your downs. You see good movies. You see bad movies. You wonder if your life is just a big movie. You look at others and wish you were them. You then realize who they are and glad you're you. You love life. You hate life. In the end you just find yourself happy to be living life no matter what's being thrown at you.

Let your light shine



Does the light of your soul still shine?

Is it still a beacon that others can find?
Or does a guilty conscience cover it like a film
Dulling its rays and causing it to look dim?

Do you tell yourself everything is just fine
Ignoring the needs of others as if blind?
What about those who have gone astray?
And those who are lonely and afraid?

Search your heart and see what you find
Ask yourself if you have been unkind
Good deeds alone will not get you into Heaven
Extend a helping hand to your fallen brethren

It will clear your conscience and erase your sins
And the light of your soul will be bright again
Others will look upon you as a beacon of hope
As down life's road they struggle and cope

A friend



A friend is like a flower
A rose to be exact,
Or maybe like a brand new gate,
That never come unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
Both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
Whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like those blades of grass,
You can never mow,
Standing straight, tall and proud
In a perfect row.
A friend is like a heart
That goes strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world,
If we didn't have a friend.

To all my haters... Thank you!




To all the people along 
the way who hurt me, 
lied to me, 
betrayed me, 
disappointed me, 
broke my heart... 
You unknowingly pointed 
me in the direction of my 
own North Star. 
Without the messes, 
I wouldn't have a message. 
You taught me more than 
you could ever take from me. 
Thank you!

Love is....



Love is not a Joke, Love is not a game
Once u fall in Love, you will never be the same,
Love is never ending, Love is never wrong,
Love can make u weak, Love can make you strong..
Love is more than words, Love is more than giving,
Love can make u cry, Love can make you sing..
Love is always true, Love is always kind,
Love is something that happens,
not something that you find..

I survived




Sometimes you have to fall from the mountain to realize what you are climbing for. Obstacles are placed in our way to see if what we want is really worth fighting for. From every wound there's a scar and every scar tells a story, a story that says, "I was wounded but I survived."



Start Over



When couples first get together, everything is new and exciting. They overlook the little annoying things the other person does. However, after time, the nagging starts, instead of hearing, You look beautiful, they might hear Why are you wearing that shirt? If this sounds like your relationship, first, the two of you need to sit down and be honest that things have changed. Identify the things each other did in the beginning of the relationship that created the attraction in the first place. Then together, make a commitment to start over. The truth is, both of you will have to work on this. It will not automatically be easy but it is possible. Start by forgiving each other, forgetting the past, and then start over with the flirtation. Focus only on the special things your mate does and relearn to put the unimportant things aside. It will take some time so be patient.

Good Life




When you really want something, sometimes you have to swim a little deeper. You can't give up just because things don't come easy. You have to overcome the obstacles and face your fears. But in the end, it's all worthwhile. Life is full of ups and downs, but if you believe in yourself, you will always come through with flying colors. Value friendship, love and faith. Never underestimate yourself. Believe in yourself. Have a good life!

The couples



The couples that are meant to be are the ones who go through everything that's designed to tear them apart and come out even stronger.


simple person



I'm not the most popular person, but I have good friends. 
I'm not a rich person but I have, but I have the important things I need.
I may not be liked by all, but I'm love by those who matter to me. 


the strongest people...



Sometimes the strongest people are the ones who love beyond all faults, cry behind close doors and fight battles that nobody knows about.

Enjoy the world around you



Nature cannot heal and help us while we are rushing about. We must stop and relax if nature is to work her magic. There is little value in a hurried glance at a mountain brook, but to take off our shoes and socks and wade in the brook or to sit on the bank and watch it for an hour, is to feel its peace and music flowing through us.

-Wilferd A. Peterson

Take a day away from it all



Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us. We need hours or aimless wandering or spates of time sitting on the park benches, observing the mysterious worlds of ants and the canopy of treetops. A day away acts as a spring tonic. It can dispel rancor, transform indecision and renew the spirit.

be thankful




There is no need to wait until Thanksgiving Day to give thanks. Today, look around you and give thanks for all the gifts that you have. You'll surprise yourself, as you start to actually list all that there is to give thanks for. We, sometimes, focus on all that we don't have, that we forget to really notice all that we do have.

crazy life




The crazy thing about life is that though we make plans of the future, even plans that may sometimes include people in our lives in which we may really care about at the moment; there are many things in our lives that we simply cannot plan for. One important fact of life is that no matter what we do, sometimes things just change. Sometimes the people that we once cared so much for will become the people that we can no longer be around, and sometimes the friends that we think will be in our lives forever somehow leave out of our lives before we can ever get a good chance to say goodbye. We must all remember that life isn't going to stop just because our plans may fall through, and just because we are heartbroken over someone leaving out of our lives. We must be able to pick up the pieces that our life shatters into sometimes, do our best to hold things together, and continue working hard towards the goals and dreams that we have set in our minds and hearts. Even though things change, and even though friends leave, we have to realize that life doesn't stop for anybody, and to never stop moving forward.


my choice



“There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.”

Attitudes



The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a school, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90 % how I react to it. And so it is with you.. we are in charge of our ATTITUDES.

moving on



Moving on is very hard for every one of us that has experienced a troubling break up in our lives, but it is actually our best revenge. Instead of antagonizing, begging, or giving a person the satisfaction of knowing that moving on is causing us to be miserable, most times it is in our own best interests to try our best to move on. Instead of focusing on making a person who is no longer with you know the way that you are feeling after you have already let your feelings be known, focus on who you are, and where you want to go. Life is too short to waste on someone who obviously didn't work out in your life for a reason or reasons. Focus on becoming a better more whole person. Focus on living your life out of love, and being able to bless others instead of wasting energy on someone who more than likely doesn't deserve it. The world is a great place in need of people who are willing to serve, be bigger than your situations in life, and try your hardest to spread love and inspiration to everyone that you can.

Angel Wishes



I'm sending you loving Angel wishes,
for beautiful blessings to come your way.
And for you to have peace and tranquility,
as you travel through your life each day.

May all of your days be filled with love;
your nights be filled with wonderful dreams.
And may hope and faith be your strength,
no matter how impossible something seems.

I wish for you happiness and laughter,
and for good health to always be with you.
May you find your wealth in the gifts of love,
yet, enough money to see your way through.

These Angel wishes I am sending to you,
are because you are so very special to me.
They come to you filled with God's love,
for your life to be everything you wish it to be. 

I promise myself



To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to everyone I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny-side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

Find pleasure in little things



Take the scenic route to work, find an exotics takeout restaurant to challenge your senses, or scout out a new spot to watch the sun set. Design a different pamper-yourself afternoon, read a whole new genre of books, learn about a foreign culture, or listen to a category of music you’ve never really explored before. Ask someone you’d like to meet to lunch, join a new chat room on the internet, or call someone you love on the middle of the day. Take up yoga or medication; join a cycling club or a rowing crew. Run a marathon, build a birdhouse, or paint your front door red.

Make every day special



Make every day a day to celebrate life and be thankful. Take time to pull yourself away from all the noise and just look around you.

Take inventory. Appreciate those who have enhanced the quality of your life. And remember that they have been a gift to you. Also remember that you’re a gift to them, too.

Be grateful for the choices you’ve made, both good and bad. Accept your mistakes; you can’t change them anyway. Appreciate yourself and your own uniqueness.

Go outside and look at the sky. Soak In the atmosphere. Enjoy the colors of the landscape. Feel the texture of every place you are that you are thankful for. Smile at the world. Don’t allow any negative feelings to creep into your consciousness. Feel the power of your own acceptance. Put a positive spin on every thought you have.

think before you talk



Think before you talk. Everyone has secrets they don't wanna share. Everyone has a past that no one heard about. Everyone has talents that people don't notice. Everyone has a story left untold. So never start judging someone, thinking like you know them. Because the truth is... you probably DON'T!

keep moving forward



Don't let yesterday use up too much of today. What is done is done. What is gone is gone. One of life's lessons is always moving on. It's ok to look back and think of the fond memories but KEEP  MOVING FORWARD.

Proud to be a woman



Yes, I'm a woman. I push doors that clearly say PULL. I laugh harder when I try to explain why I'm laughing. I walk into a room and forget why I was there. I count on my fingers in math. I hide the pain from my loved ones. I say it is a long story when it's really not. I cry a lot more than you think I do. I care about people who don't care about me. I try to do things before the microwave beeps. I listen to you even when you don't listen to me. And a hug will always help. Yes, I'm a woman! Re-post if you're proud to be one. :)

different life



Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right.  There are many roads to what’s right.  You cannot judge others by your own past.  They are living a different life than you.  What might be good for one person may not be good for another.  What might be bad for one person might change another person’s life for the better.  You have to allow people to make their own mistakes and their own decisions.

Lean on me



Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won't let show

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand (Chorus)
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Second Verse
(Chorus)

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me
(Chorus)
Call me (if you need a friend)
Call me (call me)
Call me (if you need a friend)
Call me (if you ever need a friend)
Call me (call me)
Call me
Call me (if you need A friend)

realize


At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It's not like you're giving up, and it's not like you shouldn't try. It's just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours will eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be.

real me




I admit that some people don't like me for who I am.. for my attitude, my expressions, my style.. But I'm just showing the real me and I don't have to pretend just to flatter somebody.

Criticism



" Don't be distracted by criticism. Remember: The only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you. "

no competition



I am in competition with NO ONE.
I run my own RACE.I have NO DESIRE
to play the GAME of being BETTER than ANYONE,
in ANY WAY,SHAPE or FORM. I just AIM to IMPROVE,
to be BETTER than i was BEFORE

once upon a time



Once upon a time, Mommy's and Daddy's could beat their kid's asses so they learned to respect others. But these days they can't and that's why so many people suck! The End

be happy



Be happy, be who you want to be. If others don't like it, let them be. As the saying goes, happiness is a choice. Life isn't about pleasing everybody.

Son's last grief



I went to a party Mom,

I remembered what you said.
 
U told me not to drink,
Mom, So I drank soda instead.

I really felt proud inside, Mom,
The way you said I would.
I didn’t drink and drive, Mom,
Even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing, Mom,

I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,
As everyone is driving out of sight.

As I got into my car, Mom,

I knew I’d get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.

I started to drive away, Mom,

But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn’t see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.:(

As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,

I hear the policeman say,
“The other guy is drunk,” Mom,
And now I’m the one who will pay.

I’m lying here dying, Mom….

I wish you’d get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life just burst like a balloon.

There is blood all around me, Mom,

And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
I’ll die in a short time.

I just wanted to tell you, Mom,

I swear I didn’t drink.
It was the others, Mom.
The others didn’t think.

He was probably at the same party as I.

The only difference is, he drank
And I will die.
Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your whole life.
I’m feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,

And I don’t think it’s fair.
I’m lying here dying
And all he can do is stare.

Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.

Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom,
Put “GOOD BOY ” on my grave.

Someone should have told him, Mom,

Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom,
I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom.

I’m becoming very scared.
Please don’t cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were always there.

I have one last question, Mom.

Before I say good bye.
I didn’t drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?

the way I am




I'm not hot or gorgeous. I don't have an amazing figure or a flat stomach. I'm far from being considered a model but, I'm me. I eat food, I have curves, I have more fat than I should, I have scars, I have a history. Some people love me, some like me, some hate me. I have done good, I have done bad. I love my PJ's and I go without makeup. I'm random and crazy. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. I am who I am, you can love me or not. I won't change!! And if I love you, I do it with my heart!! I make no apologies for the way I am.

you and them



“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.


If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.


If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.


The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” - Mother Teresa

Love all over again



Someday, we'll forget the hurt, the reason we cried and who caused us pain. We will finally realize that the secret of being free is not revenge, but letting things unfold in their own way and own time. After all, what matters is not the first, but the last chapter of our life which shows how well we ran the race. so smile laugh, forgive, believe and love all over again.

fairy tales


I used to believe in fairy tales, used to believe that the nice guy was truly the hero, then reality proved me wrong, because in a world where it basically its you vs the world, you have to be able to take the pain and get up...even if it means losing people you care about, but you have to be able to go on and not look back, let the tears fall once and just not look back and wish to be there in their arms, yeah it may hurt, but you have to deal with the pain. I just wish you could see it in my eyes...

How to get into Heaven ( funny short story )



A Sunday school teacher asked
the children in her class,
"If I sold my house and my car,
had a big garage sale and
gave all my money to the church,
would I get into Heaven?"

"No!" the children all answered.

"If I cleaned the church every day,
mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy,
would I get into Heaven?"

Again the answer was "No!"
"Well", she continued, "then how can I get into Heaven?"
A five-year-old boy shouted out, "You gotta be dead!"

One day, you’ll be just a memory...



One day,
you’ll be just a memory for some people.
Do your best to be a good one.

Silence is a girls loudest cry...



Silence is a girls loudest cry
you know she's really hurt when she starts ignoring you.

Don’t choose the most beautiful...



Don’t choose the most beautiful person in the world
choose a person that makes your world the most beautiful..

I am Me



“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know -- but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay.”

Heart to heart



The words I LOVE YOU
are not for anyone
to say from their mouth
to their loved one.
It's a feeling that you can
whisper to each other
from heart to heart
without saying it aloud.

Two hearts and souls



When you're not here to share my days and nights
My life is so incomplete
For you are my heart, my soul
The "oneness" I had known to seek

Without you I merely exist from day to day
With you I know that I will find
all that I have been searching for
My completeness, my eternal peace of mind

You are the keeper of my dreams
The man who holds my heart in his hands
The one I want to spend my life with
The one with whom I will always stand

Stand beside through thick and think
Through all that life will throw our way
Knowing that this special love we share
Will guide us, each and every day

This journey was started long ago
Before this time and place
The journey of completeness
As two hearts and souls embrace

My worth



I can't make people love me forever. All I can do is to show them WHO I AM and WHAT I FEEL... And it's up to them to realize my worth.

Friend in pretend



Don't be afraid of your enemies...
Be afraid of those who PRETEND to be your friend.

Sweet smile



Take a sweet smile when you are insulted. Sometimes, a smile is enough to make them regret with their words. BE HUMBLE. STAY HUMBLE.


Blessings



Blessings are the things you no longer have to ask, you already have them. All you have to do, is look around you. Count them, be thankful and share them with others. You are one of my best blessings in life.
