It's easy to look on the bright side of things when all is going well...
when the smiles outweigh the frowns and the sunshine is streaming in the window-
But the happiest people are the ones who can say -- when all is going wrong,when the clouds get in the way, that a little unhappiness must balance the joys, and that a bit of sadness has its place in the world, too.
For they know, these special people, of the balance of nature's ways
They know that nothing grows where the sun always shines, and that gray skies and rain can be an unregrettable sign of the day...
For these fortunate people, their favorite season is always the one they are in, and they continue to look on the bright side, knowing that the sunshine might leave for awhile but that it will never be gone for long.

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; No disease that enough love will not heal; No door that enough love will not open; No gulf that enough love will not bridge; No wall that enough love will not throw down; No sin that enough love will not redeem...
It makes no difference how deeply seated the trouble; How hopeless the outlook; How muddled the tangle; How great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all...If you only could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.

There are times when you have been hurt so badly that you become certain that the pain will never pass.

But it does...
sometimes because of your efforts sometimes in spite of them, but always, always it goes away.

So hold on, and know that tomorrow will come, and with each tomorrow it will be better.

PROMISE YOURSELF

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best.To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Brown-skinned girl,

Thank you. i like the one about the promise to myself. i will print that and make it my primary goal for the new year. Looking back to the past has got me a little down. I desperately needed some self- inspiration to keep going stronger than ever. Keep posting, someone is reading it!!!

wallace, 1dvsgirl and deshong...thanks and am glad u found them meaningful...cuz i have.
i am in a most difficult time in my life right now and i am buying inspirational and uplifting at the same time educational books. and what's funny is most of the books that are really a help to me now kinda just pop out in the shelf and as if asking me to buy them.this just goes to show that Somebody up there is taking care of you...and is there holding your hand as you go through the pain.
the many sources of love and strength i have now (aside from the wonderful books i have purchased) is my family, my few close friends and our Creator. I am not a religious person but i know that there is a Greater Power out there.
Let me also share with you this message my friend sent me:

"The soul that has sufficient faith accepts all the events of life as gifts from GOD, in the serene assurance that GOD knows best!".

I will share more...cuz in sharing, it not only eases the pain of many of us here but it also eases my own pain knowing that I am not alone.
