every day i see a new opportunity - to live. to learn. to grow. it's a very beautiful thing and something that i never intend to take for granted. i sit here thinking about my life, where i am, the people that surround me and all the things that this life has to offer...that i have to look forward to...
i have learned...
to focus on today - you never know what tomorrow will or won't bring
to be thankful for the things that i do have - not what i don't
that being different is a gift
that time really does heal, even when you think your world is over...it does get better
that i really can make a difference, whether it be in this world, or in a person's life
smiling is contagious - we should all do it more often
that niceness can be mistaken for weakness - but at least i know it's a sign of strength
that every single person has a purpose, including myself - it's just finding it that's the hard part
to dream and dream big - we only have one life to live why not make the most of it?
that attitude is everything - and a positive attitude is priceless
that forgiveness is necessary - to not forgive is like drinking poison
to speak even when no one is listening
to help and do the right thing, even when no one is watching
that i deserve to be loved and accepted for everything that i am and want to be
that disappointment makes you stronger from the inside out
that creating "small talk" with a complete stranger can make a difference in their day (and mine as well)
to let go and be okay with it.
i have learned to be me and only me-this is my commitment to live up to the spirit that is within myself.
i have learned to live in the moment and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
what have you learned? i would love for you to share with me.
