dON’T aLLOW oTHERS TO dEFINE you

Believe in yourself and your abilities. Don’t live your life trying to live up to the expectation of others. You will never please everyone. No matter how much good you do, there are some who will still find fault with you. Therefore just strive to live a good life. Do what you know is right and never allow others to define you.

Life is like a Storybook

Life is like a storybook, intricately woven with many twists and turns. However, unlike a storybook it is more complex, more unpredictable. In a storybook, you get to know all the characters and you know how the story ends. Life is unpredictable about who you will encounter, and you cannot guarantee how your story will end. The key is to live a life that others can emulate. When you are gone from this earth let it be said that this person came, lived, showed love and made a difference.

Move Forward With Your Dreams

Dreams Can Come True

If you have a dream, something close to your heart, a lifelong goal you wish to accomplish, do not let fear hold you back. Fear has kept many people from pursuing their dreams. For the lack of courage many have settled for a mediocre life because the fear of failure have held them hostage. Do not allow that to happen to you. This is your moment. Take a chance on you. Don’t live the rest of your life wondering, what if?

The Things You do and say Make a Difference

The things you do and say, can make a difference
in someone else’s life. It is important to
encourage, rather than always criticize. See the good in those
around you, and not always seek to see what’s wrong.
Some people fight silent battles, and sometimes
all they need, is a kind word or a helping hand.

What do you do When Plans go Asunder

What do you do when your plans go asunder,
What do you do when they all come to naught?
Don’t blame yourself, it’s okay to blunder,
Take heed, in life some mistakes are lessons taught.
Stop for a moment and cry if you must,
Smile through the teardrops and try to be brave,
Pick up the pieces and brush off the dust,
Then you move forward to battle the next wave.
Life is a battlefield where the toughest survive,
Don’t dwell on the problems and forget to have fun,
For though there are problems you still have to strive
To rise each morning and greet the rising sun.
Don’t let life problems get you down
Rise up stand tall and never frown.
