“Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you’ll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room*.” ( ~ I Love You More )

“Focus On the Good…

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and FOCUS ON THE GOOD. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be ANYTHING BUT HAPPY. Falling down is a part of life; getting back up is living.”

( ~ Jose N. Harris )

“My Wish For You:

When you are lonely, I wish you love. When you are down, I wish you joy. When you are troubled, I wish you peace. When things are complicated, I wish you simple beauty. When things are chaotic, I wish you inner silence. When things look empty, I wish you hope.”

Thoughts from ( ~ Punnky )

“Friendship isn’t about how long you’ve known each other, it’s about camaraderie.”

“No matter what may have happened yesterday, a new day of fresh possibilities has dawned. You are not the same person today as you were yesterday.”

“You may think you’re rich if you have expensive meals, a big house, and fancy jewelry, but real wealth is having love, friendship, and true peace of mind.”

“Perks of reaching 60 or being over 70 and heading towards 80!

(1) Kidnappers are not very interested in you. (2) In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first. (3) No one expects you to run…anywhere. (4) People call at 8 PM and ask: ‘Did I wake you?’ (5) People no longer view you as a hypochondriac. (6) There is nothing left to learn the hard way. (7) Things you buy now won’t wear out. (8) You can eat supper at 5 PM. (9) You can live without sex but not your glasses. (10) Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size. (11) You can’t remember who sent you this list. (12) And you notice that these are all in Big Print for your convenience. (Share this with everyone you can remember right now! And remember: Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night!)”

(Author Unknown)…but whoever you are, thanks for the laughs, even though they all apply to me!

Words of Wisdom from Annetta Powell

“Never blame anyone in your life. Good people give you happiness. Bad people give you experience; the worst people give you lessons, and the best people give you memories.”

“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always ‘no.’ If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”

“Saying YES to happiness means learning to say NO to things and people that stress you out.”

“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about.”

( ~ Mike Rave )

“And most of all, stop worrying about your happiness. Happiness does not come from your job. It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs. What you do, who you’re with, and how you feel about the world around you, is completely up to you.”
