"You don’t have to be the best. You should do your best."
Today I will do my best. Although my best may not be good enough for some people, it is always good enough for God. My worth as a person does not depend on the approval of others. i will do my best, and it will always be enough.
“Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt but 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. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO love you.”
You are special—Don’t EVER forget it.
"You mourn, you grieve for a while, but then after, you move on. That’s life. Sometimes, someone comes into your life who makes you happy, brings so much color and meaning to an otherwise bland existence, but there’s no guarantee that you will be able to keep that person forever. Sometimes, things happen which are beyond our control, and no matter how we try to control the outcome, we find ourselves pulled against our will. We try so hard to save the one thing that’s giving us happiness, but we have to realize that sometimes, people fall out of love. It hurts, but if they do, and they’ve made it clear they don’t want to stay, then we have to let them go. This is when we realize, it just wasn’t meant to be. So accept that fact, and move on. It’s not easy, but it’s the only way. Sometimes, the people we love leave us to make room for someone much better, someone who will love us unconditionally for who we are and not for who they want us to be. We mourn, we move on, then we continue our search for happiness. That’s life.”
"Of course you’re gonna get your heart broken. And it isn’t just gonna happen once, but a lot. That’s just part of growing up, and it makes you stronger. Then you can handle it better the next time. You may not get through it yourself, but your friends will help you through it. And you’ll be a stronger person because of it. Then, one day, someone will come along, and it’ll all pay off, and no one will ever break your heart again."
That ‘s what we call LOVE … it hurts and yet it is so beautiful, and that is what makes it so great, that we can experience so many powerful emotions in just one major thing, although they may hurt at times. SO open your heart and Love again.
life is going to throw you so many obstacles to overcome. some are going to be easier than others, some will leave you happy and some will kill you deep inside. but no matter what happens in the end, it’ll always bring along more and more obstacles to face. You just have to stand tall, hold your head high and just take whatever life brings to you.
The main thing I learned? if you aren’t willing to put up with a little pain, you won’t go far. With every journey you’ll get scratches and bruises, but if you really love it, those scratches will be worth it and you wouldn’t really notice them because you take the pain with the joy.
The important thing is not to bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past and recognize that everyday won’t be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair, remember, it’s only in the black of night that you see the stars, and those stars lead you back home.
"Sometimes your biggest battle is to believe in yourself."
I feared rejection until I learned to have faith in myself.
I feared pain until I learned that it’s necessary for growth.
I feared the truth until I saw the ugliness in lies.
I feared life until I experienced its beauty.
I feared death until I realized that it’s not an end, but a beginning.
I feared my destiny, until I realized that I had the power to change my life.
I feared hate until I saw that it was nothing more than ignorance.
I feared love until it touched my heart, making the darkness fade into endless sunny days
I feared ridicule until I learned how to laugh at myself.
I feared growing old until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.
I feared the future until I realized that life just kept getting better.
I feared the past until I realized that it could no longer hurt me.
I feared the dark until I saw the beauty of the starlight.
I feared the light until I learned that the truth would give me strength.
I feared change, until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo
a metamorphosis before it could fly.
learn to believe in yourself.
Pain comes in all forms. In the small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain, and the normal pains we live with everyday. Then there’s the kind of pain that you just can’t ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else. It makes the rest of the world fade away until all we can think about is how much we hurt. How we manage our pain is up to us. We ride it out, embrace it, ignore it, run from it, and for some of us, the best way to manage the pain is to just push through it.
The important thing is to not be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past and recognize that every day won’t be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair, remember that it is only in the black of night that you see the stars, and those stars lead you home.
“Don’t hang onto anything too tightly – all things must change and you have to allow room for them to grow and blossom.”
“Let things go. Release them. Detach yourself from them. Nobody plays this life with marked cards, so sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Do not expect anything in return, do not expect your efforts to be appreciated, your genius to be discovered, your love to be understood. Stop turning on your emotional television to watch the same program over and over again, the one that shows how much you suffered from a certain loss: that is only poisoning you, nothing else.”
"I do understand the impulse. the impulse to put your hand out and want someone to be there at the end of your reach. to want someone to be close to. someone to be there for for me…to be held.. i don’t know.. I can’t really tell you how I feel. I’m not happy and I know that. But not exactly sad either. it’s more like a longing…Sometimes I feel like no one cares. Sometimes I feel like no one is there. I feel so alone. and I’m just caught between all these emotions and I feel so… empty.”
"You’re still young. Don’t make your life miserable by thinking about problems. Instead, always think that in every problem there’s a solution and everything will be okay. Do what you think is right. Take risks, try new things, laugh and live as if there’s no tomorrow. For the next years of your life you’ll have no choice but to be more responsible. So enjoy while you’re still young and vibrant.”
Just when you feel like you can’t go on and all you wanna do is give up, fight a little longer, hold on a little more…hang on. you’ll be fine, you’re strong, you are brave!.. everything is going to be okay, i promise :)
