“YOU HAVE TO EMBRACE GETTING OLDER. LIFE IS PRECIOUS AND WHEN YOU’VE LOST A LOT OF PEOPLE, YOU REALIZE THAT EACH DAY IS A GIFT.” Meryl Streep
You can’t be all things to all people.
You can’t do all things at once.
You can’t do all things equally well.
You can’t do all things better than everyone else.
Your humanity is showing just like everyone else’s.
You have to find out who you are, and be that.
You have to decide what comes first, and do that.
You have to discover your strengths, and use them.
You have to learn not to compete with others,
Because no one else is in the contest of “being you.”
You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness.
You will have learned to set priorities and make decisions.
You will have learned to live with your limitations.
You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due.
And you’ll be a most vital mortal.
DARE TO BELIEVE:
That you are a wonderful, unique person.
That you are a once-in-all-history event.
That it’s more than a right, it’s your duty, to be who you are.
That life is not a problem to solve, but a gift to cherish.
And you’ll be able to stay one up on what used to get you down.
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
Here's some good advice that starts with...DON'T EVER
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.
Hoping you don't ever stop having blessed days!
