I took a break from life recently and came back renewed and inspired enough to realize that I was looking at my life in a limited way. The outward appearance was troublesome to me but by taking a break, I was able realize that I had only to broaden my focus to include the beauty that surrounded me, and voila`, I am happy again!

Guidelines and Guideposts for Life…
A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived!
Have a seat. Relax . . .
And read this slowly.
That we don’t have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
That it’s taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.
That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
That my best friend and I
can do anything or nothing
and have the best time.
That sometimes when I’m angry
I have the right to be angry, but that
doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
That it isn’t always enough,
to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn
to forgive yourself.
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are, but,
we are responsible for whom we become.
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different.
That your life can be changed
in a matter of hours
by people who don’t even know you.
That credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.
That you should share this with
all of the people that you believe in.
I just did.
The happiest of people don’t necessarily have
the best of everything; They just make the most of everything they have.
