just a thoughts ♥

We get mad over the smallest reasons. We over-analyze everything.
We feel a sense of jealousy when we see you talking to someone who has more to offer.
We get sad at the thought of ever losing you.
We start pointless arguments and fights, just to see if you care enough to stick around.
We often say things we later regret.
We want to know you care as much as we do.
It’s because we’re girls, and we need to be reassured from time to time♥

Every girl dreams of getting married, the big white dress, the handsome groom, all the decorations and the exotic honeymoon. But they don’t talk about the marriage, thats what I dream of, everyday life with you.
Getting ready together, kissing goodbye in the morning,
coming home at night and unwinding together, grocery shopping, cleaning, laundry, cooking, the ups and downs. the good the bad and the ugly.
Thats what I dream of♥

You can never tell what people are thinking and feeling unless they tell you, and usually they lie.
You ask them, ‘whats wrong?’ and they say ‘nothing’. You accept this because it’s easier than digging for the truth.
people smile when they want to cry, they laugh when they want to scream and shout. They pretend like nothing is wrong because they don’t want to face the truth.
things aren’t always rainbows and butterflies, sometimes you gotta scream and cry your anger and sadness to the world, because you can only hold it in for so long before something in you snaps.
So when you want to cry, cry. when you want to scream, scream. Don’t hide behind fake smiles, it’s ok to not be alright.

It doesn’t matter if you have a boyfriend or a bunch of friends.
If you’re lonely then you will feel lonely with or without these factors.
They don’t change it. They don’t make you feel less alone.
Lonely doesn’t mean you don’t have people who love you, it just means you don’t feel it.
It’s a state of mind, not reality.

I want a simple love that is full of laughter & smiles and is never-ending. I want to hold someones hand and know I’m home. I want to wear a pretty white dress and walk into the chapel and watch his face light up. I want to be naive, head-over-heels, and completely senseless but completely in love. I want to sit in rocking chairs at 80 years old, next to the one person who never left and who made me better, and not regret one single second of my life. I hope I find this someday♥

AKO TO!

Leos born on August 21 are practitioners of conspicuous consumption and don’t make any apologies about it. They enjoy luxurious surroundings and have a knack for accumulating material wealth and possessions. They are jovial and friendly. A great love and respect for learning, though not immediately apparent, is well known to and applauded by people close to these folks.

Friends and Lovers

August 21 people have a huge social circle that includes friends of all stripes. Love is almost always a positive experience for them. They don’t believe in being a victim and can bounce back from a breakup more readily than most people.

Children and Family

Family closeness is the cornerstone of life for August 21 natives. Being a parent is the emotional high of a lifetime for them. They understand how to enter a child’s world and how to bring a lifetime of experience to something as simple as a make-believe tea party.

Health

August 21 folks love good food and good wine and sometimes have a hard time knowing when to cut back. They need to learn the importance of regular exercise. They need to commit to daily aerobic-style workouts if they want to remain in good physical condition.

Career and Finances

August 21 natives prefer a demanding job that keeps them going at a hectic pace all day long. These people like the social give and take that comes with the activity in a large firm with plenty of colleagues. They have big plans that include making a lot of money. They have something of the entrepreneurial spirit about them and may try starting their own business at some point.

Dreams and Goals

August 21 individuals have unflappable optimism. Their dreams and wishes are as concrete to them as any reality, and they don’t allow themselves to be discouraged. They are intelligent and capable, with just the right balance of naivete and common sense to get the job done.

The Road of Life

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

traveled will take discipline but is very much worth the ride.

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.

“The Past – Holding On- Letting Go”..


“The Past – Holding On – Letting Go”..

..

Holding on to the past is trying to

breathe life into a play which is closed.

It is struggling to raise the curtain

in a dark theatre, on a dusty stage,

by ourselves.

The other players have left.

The stage in empty.

It is going over our everyone’s lines,

long since said,

playing all the parts – alone.

It is being stuck.

..

It is entrapment in a time warp.

The costumes no longer fit.

The buttons have popped.

We are different people today

but we still force the action.

It is a brutal attack on ourselves,

because we become, on this stage,

both the victim and the attacker.

..

..

We don’t forgive ourselves………...

We get caught in the “if onlies,”

hanging on to dreams

which did not come true,

losses – a loved person who has died,

an unhappy childhood,

a love affair which did not

end happily ever after,

a youth gone –

opportunities which have disappeared.

The game is over,

but we are bad sports.

We refuse to accept defeat.

We run the tape over and over.

We can put it on rewind but we

can’t get into the movie anymore.

..

..

Dr. Wayne Dyer, author of

many wonderful books,

likens it to our holding on

to the bars of a cage.

..

..

We rattle them,

desperately trying to get free.

But the bars are just in front of us.

If we look to the right,

to the left or behind us,

there are no bars.

All we have to do is turn

around and walk away.

We are looking for love in that past.

.

A cry that was not answered,

a unhappy childhood,

that lover who left,

that job to validate us.

We wanted to feel safe,

wanted, worthwhile.

Yet we know that we cannot

infuse love into what is gone.

We can only give and receive love now.

We have shackled ourselves in bondage.

It is time to walk away from the cage.

..

..

The past is not holding us.

We are holding it.

Picture all your past relationships,

now lifeless forms,

hanging on hooks in a closet.

The closet goes with you

wherever you go.

The relationships are part of you –

they have made up your experience –

but you are no longer part of them.

Although you carry them with you,

you can no longer breathe

life into them.

They are your past.

You can open the closet door

and look at the array.

..

But, if you take them out

and try to carry them around,

they are a heavy and unnecessary burden.

Bits and pieces are pinned on these hanging

forms as progress is made

through forgiveness.

And, it is possible that you may

meet again in the present,

but it will always be a new relationship.

You travel with your closet,

filling it more and more each day.

But it is carried for you.

There is no need for you

to put it on your back.

You cannot lose it because it is

the summation of who you are.

But it no longer applies to your present

except as experience and learning.

These are the records of your life

and of your heart.

It is up to you to decide to

keep the door closed,

or to live within the boundaries

of a closet.

We can’t put the past on rewind.

The buttons are stuck.

The actors have gone on to other roles.

The set has been dismantled.

The movie is over.

..

~Corinne Edwards..

“…and here we are again

the door is closed behind us

and the long road lies ahead

where do we go from here

it’s time to make a change

lets trace the problem

to its source

no more riding the waves

on a river that’s run its course

I stood at the door

to a new beginning

two choices before me

and I was afraid

tied to a fading memory

of something lost in time

afraid to make the change

scared to leave the past behind

the future called

and frightened I turned away

we stand at the door

to a new beginning

two choices before us

don’t be afraid

close your eyes, forget the fear

leave the past behind…”

..

..

In order to be free,

we must learn how to let go.

Release the hurt.

Release the fear.

Refuse to entertain your old pain.

The energy it takes to hang onto

the past is holding you back

from a new life.

So many people today are living

below their God-given potential.

They’ve put their dreams on hold

because of disappointments.. or setbacks.

But God doesn’t want us to spend

a single moment living in regret

or condemnation.

He doesn’t want us to settle for mediocrity,

He wants us to make the most

out of every moment of our lives.

He promises to make all things new.

He promises to restore everything the

enemy has stolen from us.

..

..

There are only two responses we can have:

internalize the anger and become bitter

or let go!

Bitterness only closes our hands,

not to let go the past and keep replaying

past memory tapes of us

being done wrong.

Most of all bitterness keeps us from

grabbing hold to the blessing in front

of us all because we are afraid

to let go the negativity of the past.

I wish I could tell you that if you

let go you will not be hurt again

but that is not true.

But I can tell you

if you do not let go,

you will not feel the joy that you

will gain more out of life.

..

..

It’ is ok…...

..

….to Let Go!..

..

We are the ones who have to

make the decision to let go

of the past so we can make

the most of today.

We have to choose to keep

moving forward one step at a time.

When you choose to walk in forgiveness,

you are making the most of your life.

When you reach out to help others,

you are making the most of your life.

When you give of your time, talent,

and resources to build the kingdom of God,

you are making the most of your life.

..

..

Choose today to let go of the past

so you can embrace every opportunity

the Lord has in store for your future!

..

..

“For a human being to be transformed

and to transcend all imperfections

and limitations, the past has to die.

Everyone has the capacity to do this,

provided they have the right determination.

Forget who you were or

what you may have done in the past.

Focus on what you would like to be,

and then, while you are doing

whatever is necessary to attain the goal,

let go of the future as well.

..

..

Who or what you may have been

until now is of little importance.

The past can be compared to a graveyard,

and it wouldn’t be wise to live

in such a place, would it?

Forget your past.

Remember it only when you really

need to do so,

but don’t settle down in it.”

~ Amma, “Awaken Children!”..

Life Without Stress

Life  Without Stress

That we live in an extremely stressful environment

is  abundantly evident.  However, stress is nothing new -

 it's been  around since the beginning. Robert Louis

Stevenson made these  suggestions over 100 years ago:

 Make up your mind to be  happy -

learn to find pleasure in simple things.



 Make the best of circumstances.

No  one has everything and everyone

 has something of sorrow.



 Don't take yourself too seriously.



 Don't let criticism worry you -

you  can't please everybody.

Don't let your neighbors set  your standards -

be yourself.



 Do things you enjoy doing but stay out of  debt.



 Don't borrow trouble. Imaginary things

are harder to bear than  actual ones.



 Since hate poisons the soul,

don't  cherish enmities and grudges.

Avoid people who make you unhappy.



 Have many interests. If you can't travel,

read  about places.



 Don't hold post-mortems or spend time

 brooding over sorrows and mistakes.



Don't be the one who never gets over  things.



Keep busy at something.

A very busy  person never has

 time to be unhappy.



Times haven't changed -

Relax and  have a wonderful day!

Today and all days-

Always - in all  ways!

Words to Live By

Words to Live By



 


Anger is a condition in which

he tongue works faster than the mind.


You can’t change the past, but you can ruin

the present by worrying over the future.


Love ……and you shall be loved.


All people smile in the same language.


A hug is a great gift..one size fits all.

It can be given for any occasion and

it’s easy to exchange.








Everyone needs to be loved…

especially when they do not deserve it.


The real measure of a man’s wealth is

what he has invested in love.


Laughter is Love’s sunshine.


Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.


It’s important for parents to live the same things they teach.


If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday

and the worries of tomorrow,

you have no today to be thankful for.








Happy memories never wear out….

relive them as often as you want.


Home is the place where we grumble the most,

but are often treated the best.


The choice you make today

will usually affect tomorrow.


Take time to laugh for it is the music of the soul.


If anyone speaks badly of you,

live so no one will believe it.


Patience is the ability to idle your motor

when you feel like stripping your gears.


Love is strengthened by working

through conflicts together.








The best thing parents can do for

their children is to love each other.


Harsh words break no bones

but they do break hearts.


To get out of a difficulty,

one usually must go through it.


We take for granted the things

that we should be giving thanks for.


Love is the only thing that can be

divided without being diminished.

Happiness is enhanced by others

but does not depend upon others.


You are richer today if you have

laughed, given or forgiven.


For every minute you are angry with someone,

you lose 60 seconds of happiness

that you can never get back.


Do what you can, for who you can,

with what you have, and where you are.
