Everything Happens for A Reason
Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each one of us is special
Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.
Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is
Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past.
By living life one day at time, you live all the days of your life.
Don’t give up when you have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect,
This fragile thread binds us to each other.
Don’t be afraid to encounter risks
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly;
Moreover, the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Don’t dismiss your dreams
To be without dreams is to be without hope.
To be without hope is to be without purpose.
Don’t run through life so fast that you forget
Not only where you have been but also where you are going.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savoured
each step of the way.
  From Parent to Child
I gave you life, but cannot live it for you.
I can teach you things, but I cannot make you learn.
I can give you directions, but I cannot be there to lead you.
 I can allow you freedom, but I cannot account for it.
I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe.
I can teach you right from wrong, but I cannot always decide for you.
 I can buy you beautiful clothes, but I cannot make you beautiful inside.
I can offer you advise, but I cannot accept it for you.
I can give you love, but I cannot force it on you.
I can teach you to share, but I cannot make you unselfish.
 I can teach you respect, but I cannot force you to show honour.
I can advise you about friends, but I cannot choose them for you.
I can advise you about sackbut I cannot keep you pure.
I can teach the facts of life, but I can’t build your reputation.
 I can tell you about drink, but I can’t say No for you.
I can warn you about drugs, but I can’t prevent you from using them.
I can tell you about lofty goals, but I can’t achieve them for you.
I can teach you about kindness, but I can’t force you too be gracious.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer, with its twists and turns
As everyone of us sometimes learns
And many a failure turns about
When he/she might have won had he/she stuck it out
Don't give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
Success is doing the best you can,
in as many ways as you can.
It is being just and honest and true --
not in a few things, but in everything, you do.
Always look ahead and never look back,
believe you can make all your dreams come true.
Always believe in the best you can be
and have faith in the things that you do.
Forget about mistakes you've made yesterday,
The lessons you learn will prove valuable for today...
Never give up and think that you're through...
for there's always tomorrow and
a chance to begin brand new.
It is in dreaming the greatest dreams...
and seeking the highest goals...
that we build the brightest tomorrows.
There is no limit to the goals you can attain,
or the success you can achieve...
your possibilities are as endless as your dreams.
Whatever it is that you seek in life,
whatever your dreams and what you hope to achieve,
whatever you try to reach -- whatever you plan...
can all be yours -- if you only believe you can!

Today is My Day

Today my thoughts are centred on expecting only the best
and giving only the best.

Today my mind and heart are open to new opportunities
and I make the most out of every situation.

Today I will smile and act enthusiastically in everything I do.
I will make every person I meet feel very important and I will show them that I care.
Today my confidence is high and I am willing to step out and take a chance.
 I speak freely to all those I meet.
 I know I have something valuable to contribute.
 I expect results today and my time is well invested.

Today I am one step closer to achieving my goals and dreams.
 I always keep my eyes focussed on success  and prosperity.
Today I will sow good seed so that I will reap my harvest of reward.
Today is my day!

We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the heart:  love, kindness, joy, understanding, sympathy, tolerance, forgiveness.
We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the mind: ideas, dreams, purposes, ideals, principles, plans, inventions, projects, poetry.
We give of ourselves when we give gifts of the spirit: prayer, vision, beauty, aspiration, peace, faith.
We give of ourselves when we give the gift of words: encouragement, inspiration, guidance.
Emerson said it well:  "Rings and jewels are not gifts, but apologies for gifts.
The only true gift is a portion of thyself."
To laugh, is to risk playing the fool.
To weep, is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another, is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings, is to risk exposing our true selves.
To put your ideas, your dreams, before the crowd is to risk loss.
To love, is to risk not being loved in return.
To live, is to risk dying.
To hope, is to risk despair.
To try at all, is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken,
Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they simply cannot learn, change, feel, grow, love, live...
Chained by their attitudes they are slaves.


Team Work

is the ability to

work together

towards a common goal... With that Nothing is impossible.

A Smile costs nothing, but gives much
It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it
A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship
It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away
Some people are too tired to give you a smile;
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
Reflection and Prayer 
In the quiet hours, in the heat of battle, and through the hazards of the day; in times of temptation, of sorrow, of peace and of blessing, let us pray always, both alone, and with our families gathered around us, with gratitude for the blessings of life, for understanding of its problems, and for strength to endure to the end."

Live Love Laugh
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down probably will. We learn our heart's will be broken, probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Wild Fact About Me Check out this video to find out a wild fact about me. : ) Video is called -Five facts about me because I was tagged by people. LINK BELOW
My Philosophy It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end.
Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.
Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon... must inevitably come to pass.
What Gives Me Hope When one door of happiness closes, another opens. Fears do not hold me back from pursuing my hopes.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by To Say to The World in the words of Martin Luther King, "A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom."
