Don't ever be reluctant to show your feelings
when you're happy, give in to it.
When you're not, live with it.
Don't ever be afraid to try to
make things better
you might be surprised at the results.
Don't ever take the weight of the world
on your shoulders.
Don't ever feel threatened by the future
take life one day at a time
Don't ever feel guilty about the past what's done is done.
Learn from any mistakes you might have made.
Don't ever feel that you are alone
there is always somebody there for
you to reach out to.
Don't ever forget that you can achieve
so many of the things you can imagine.
It's not as hard as it seems.
Don't ever stop loving
don't ever stop believing,
don't ever stop dreaming your dreams.

Thank you to my sister Ginnie for sending me this,

Thank you Hillary
For showing me dreams can come true!
For they did with Lisle.

A special thank you for you Lisle
for being so supportive with me.
from my job to helping around the house,
to helping me reach my goals by eating right
exercising and living life to the fullest.
You are my inspiration, my love, my life!

A Testament To Life!!

Don't undermine your worth by
comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
that each of us is special.

Don't let your life slip through
your fingers by living in
the past or for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
you live ALL the days of your life.

Don't give up when you
still have something to give.
Nothing is really over
until the moment you stop trying.

Don't be afraid to admit
that you are less than perfect.
It is this fragile thread
that binds us to each together.

Don't be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
that we learn how to be brave.

The quickest way to receive
love is to give;
the fastest way to lose love is
to hold it too tightly;
and the best way to keep love
is to give it wings.

Don't run through life so
fast that you forget,
not only where you've been but
also where you are going.

Don't forget, a person's greatest
emotional need is to feel appreciated.

Don't be afraid to learn.
Knowledge is weightless,
a treasure you can always carry easily.

Don't use time or words carelessly.
Neither can be retrieved.

Life is not a race,
but a journey to be savored
each step of the way.

Yesterday is History,
Tomorrow is a Mystery
and Today is a gift:
that's why we call it The Present.

Thank You for sending this to me ^Cole^

You make a difference

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but when you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way. And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, will power, or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create who you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones.
If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart to. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen.
Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create your own life and then go out and live it.

Modivational Note

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
Your words, dreams and thoughts have power to create conditions in your life.
    What you speak about, you can bring about.
If you keep saying you can't stand your job, you might lose your job.
If you keep saying you can't stand your body, your body can become sick.
    If you keep saying you can't stand your car, your car could be stolen or stop operating.
If you keep saying you're always broke,     guess what? you'll always be broke.
If you keep saying you can't trust a man or trust a woman, you will always find someone in your life to hurt and betray you.
If you keep saying you can't find a job,     you will remain unemployed.
If you keep saying you can't find someone to love you or believe in you, your very thoughts will attract more experiences to confirm your beliefs.
Turn your thoughts and conversations around to be more positive and power packed with faith, hope, love and action.
Don't be afraid to believe that you can have what you want and deserve.
Get out of your own way.
Stop, think and listen to what you are speaking and believing.
  What you energize with your faith, feelings, words and actions will magnetize into your life what you focus on.

"A dream is in the mind of the believer, and in the hands of the doer"  "You are not given a dream,  without being given the power to make it come true."
"A friend is someone who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."  "True friends are like diamonds, precious but rare."  "Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.  Just walk beside me and be my friend."
"Love is never having to say you are sorry." "When you love a person, you are giving him, the power to hurt you."  "Love is having to see more than what meets the eyes." "You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back." "True love is like ghosts,  which everybody talks about and few have seen."
"Heal the past; live the present; dream the future." "Do not start today, with the broken pieces of Yesterday." "Destiny is not a matter of chance.  It is a matter of choice: it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved."
"Life will only come once, so make the most out of it." "God didn't gave us all things to enjoy life, but life to enjoy all things."  "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." "Mistakes are not intended to down us rather they make us stronger."

Should you find it hard to get to sleep tonight; just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.

  Should you find yourself stuck in traffic; don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

  Should you have a bad day at work; Think of the man who has been out of work for the last three months.

  Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; Think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; Think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week, for $15.00 to feed her family.

  Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance, Think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

  Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; Think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

  Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering; what is life all about, what is my purpose? Be thankful, there are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

  Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; Remember, things could be worse. You could be them!!!


A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this."  He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up.  He then asked, "Who sill wants it?"  Still the hands were up in the air. "Well," he replied, "What if I do this?"  And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty.  "Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.  It was still worth $20.  Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.  We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value in God's eyes.  To Him, dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to Him. Psalm 17:8 states that God will keep us, "as the apple of His eye."

THOUGHT:  The worth of our lives come not in what we do or who we are but by WHOSE WE ARE!   You are special.  Have a great day!! Give your troubles to God;  He will be up all night anyway.
