Celebrate Life!!! I woke up early today... excited about all that I get to do before midnight... I have responsibilities to fulfill that are important.... My job is to choose what kind of day I'll have... Today I can complain because it is raining... or I can be thankful the grass is getting watered for free! Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money... or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste! Today I can grumble about my health... or rejoice that I am alive! Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up... or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born! Today I can cry because roses have thorns... or I can celebrate that thorns have roses! Today I can mourn my lack of friends... or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships! Today I can whine because I have to go to work... or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do! Today I can complain because I have to go to school... or I can eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new knowledge! Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.... I am the sculptor, ready to do the shaping.... What today is like is up to me because I get to choose what kind of day I will have.......... Treasure this moment! Celebrate Now!!!

It can be a funny thing as we travel on this train called life.
Happiness may seem to be a hard thing to achieve at times
but it is never impossible. There are so many events in
each of our lives that can be a learning experience.
I have learned never to judge a person upon a first encounter.
Different people have different baggage; you never know
when you may meet a person on a bad day.
Never leave a love one with cross words or on a bad note.
Not only do you risk the chance of never seeing this person
again the conscience-..stricken feelings you are left
with are practically unbearable.
I have come to believe the most beautiful sound in the
world is the laughter of a small child. There is not one
sound that is more innocent and full of hope, life and possibilities.
Always love what you do as you work your way through life.
Life is much too short to be stuck in a mundane job that
you hate to go to everyday. You can choose to spend your
time doing something you love or waste it and in the end have nothing.
Through trials and tribulations,
I have learned you can love someone with all of your heart
and they will never, ever love you back.
I have also found along this journey that the best love is
developed from true friendship. Being able to love the
person you call your best friend is a miracle within itself.
In anger, you may find words that hurt others
on the edge of your tongue. The best place for those
words is left on the tongue. Once spoken, words can
never be taken back, much less forgotten.
Learning to forgive is one of the greatest strength
a person can develop. It is never easy to forgive and almost
impossible to forget, being able to go down the road less
I have discovered many times the ones you love and
depend on most will hurt you. It may not be intentionally,
but it will happen. Trust takes a long time to build and
only a matter of seconds to destroy.
I have determined that in most cases it is best to mind
your own business. You never know when the information
you learn will change your life forever.
We fall in and out of love but as bad as you may feel at times,
you will not die of a broken heart. Life will take many turns.
Some ups and some downs, we must always remember to be
true to ourselves. Only you can make yourself happy.
Remember, Stand up for the things you believe in,
stand by those you love and always be true to yourself.
