Life will always have disappointments and heartaches.

It never stays happy, and just as important it never stays sad.

Anger has its place, too,
yet it should be controlled and let go.

Happiness is almost always a state of mind
and an attitude that can be controlled
in most situations.

Choose happiness when at all possible.
Keep good memories and discard hurts and failures.

Allow yourself to make mistakes
and realize that's when you may learn your biggest lessons.

You are a precious and valued person
who deserves all the best in life -
take it and share it with others.

- Barbara Cage

Great, Ras!
RW, keep your spirits up!
A story similar to one of your quotes, Ras:

A king called the wise man and asked him to make him something to remind him to be happy when he was sad, and to remind him to be happy when he was sad. The wise man came back with a ring that said:

This too shall pass!

Have a good nite!

Nobody ever said that it would be easy or that the skies would always be sunny. When gray days and worrisome times come along, you need to stay strong.

Know that everything will be okay...
You faith in tomorrow will always help you do what is right...and it will help you be strong along the path of life.

We need to hear that life's mishaps and tragedies are not a reason to bail out. They are simply a reason to sit tight. Corrie ten Boom used to say, "When the train goes through a tunnel and the world gets dark, do you jump out? Of course not. You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through."

One more:

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow."

Wow, this is Great Cindle about Courage. If we repeat this sentence every day, we will become alive each time we feel depressed.

Here is another:

Some cares and has faith in YOU

I know that you're feeling a little discouraged and depressed right now, but please remember there is always who cares and has faith in You.

Remember that there's someone who's seen you rise to the occasion
so many times; someone who knows you've come thru tough times before and has confidence that you'll come thru this time, too.

Remember there is someone who admires you, cares when you're feeling bue, and wants you to know that if there's any way to help, they'd be happy to.

...And always remember that someone is ME.(HP)

I have gotten a lot out of the simple intention to learn about love. what it really means. what it is to truly love another. to love oneself. to walk in love, in balance. to be a conduit for Love.

Really interesting lessons are coming up out of this.

Hi, I have a really good one about STRENGTH...

You who perceive yourself as weak and frail,with futile hopes and devastated dreams,born but to die,to weep and suffer pain,hear this: ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO YOU IN EARTH AND HEAVEN....THERE IS NOTHING YOU CANNOT DO!
(-a course in miracles)

Oh i have another about MISTAKES

A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong,which is but saying, in other words,that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
-Alexander Pope

Thanks LL and Mystie, very profound words!!!

When life gets you down...

If the sun refuses to come out tomorrow and the rain falls too much to bring rainbows to your sky, please know that I am here with my heart wide open, a shoulder to lean on, and a great big umbrella to help keep you dry.

I wish you brighter days and the strength to get through the ones filled with clouds.

I wish you happiness with each day's beginning and nights filled with beautiful dreams. Know that I am thinking of you and wishing you well and that I am here if you need anything at all.

Keep Believing

I know you have a dream in you heart. I've seen it glimmering and shining through your doubts and fears. Don't worry; we all have those moments of hesitation and uncertainty. But I want you to know -and truly believe - what a wnderful, capable person you are. I see it in the way you treat others and the amazing things you've already accomplished.

Just keep pushing forward with your plans and hopes for the future. Your life holds unlimited possibilities. Only you know what your dreams are, and only you can make them come true. With a little faith and confidence in yourself, your talents, your potential, your are bound to find yourself on the road to success...a beautiful path that will lead you to your dreams!

What lies within us...

What lies within us is the ability to make triumphs out of losses.

What lies within us is the ability to view things from all angles before making any final decision,
as a means of determining or shaping a personal life perspective.

What lies within us is the choice of returning kindness in response to uninformed slights, and to right certain wrongs through understanding,
and to be open to the changes that the quickness of life brings.

What lies within us is courage, strength, and the brilliance of shared individualities.

What lies within us is the ability to find teachers in the strangest of places, and to be teachers to those who need something that we've got...
something that we didn't even know we had.

Glad you liked it Lass!

Here is my pick for today:

You are not Alone

You do not always have to play the hero or achieve perfection to be admired and loved.

You do not always have to be the eternal role model or the strong one who bears responsibility without complaint.

You do these things well and have won the respect and admiration of countless people.

But even heroes need support, and I am here to encourage you when doubts overwhelm you to be your cheerleader when your strength wanes.

I want you to enjoy life without stress, and I am here for you in whatever capacity you need. You are not alone.

Today, I dedicate this poem to all my Precious Cyber Friends who are going through some trials and difficulties, I know I am one of them!

Don't avoid Life's Curveballs; Swing at them!

Things are not always easy. Life has its share of unpredictables - throwing us into situations that we're not always prepared for, expecting more from us than we're able to manage, pushing us to our limits. The adversities can be quite overwhelming, leaving us often confused and disillusioned.

Yet, it's these challenges, these tests of fortitude, that keep us going, because the payback is great when we refuse to give in. By not giving in, we discover our own internal strengths, realize our self-worth, and connect to our spiritual selves.

We find that we're made of more than we thought, and that amidst the complexities of life, we can still strive to better ourselves and beat the odds.

Life is entirely about perception - our attitudes and how we choose to act upon our intentions.

So when life throws us a curveball, instead of worrying that we aren't ready for it or that it's unexpected, we should see the moment as something to learn from and as to incite us to grow. Most of all, we should see it as an opportunity to broaden our awareness of authentic happiness...the happiness that comes from seeing life in a whole new way.

... so just keep our heads down till the storm passes, and wait for the sun to burst forth again.

Unexpected joy is just around the corner ahead.

[ps What does "HP" mean that you keep mentioning???
Here in England it is a very popular brand of spicy brown sauce sold in a bottle. Yummy!]
