I'm not perfect.


I can be too sensitive, over-think things, dwell on what I can't control, overreact, and hold grudges. I'm not perfect. I just know what I deserve, what I have to offer, and what type of people I want to be around. If I feel you did me wrong, or you act in a way I can't respect; I will remove you from my life. And I don't need any reason other than I believe you were toxic to my well being. ~unknown

You have GREATNESS within you. ~Les Brown

If it's not one thing...then it's another. At times, it seems that every turn is the wrong one, and nothing is going your way. This is the time to practice patience, faith and determination. The job you lost will be replaced by a career or business that you are passionate about. The person who is no longer a part of your life has made room for someone else who will truly love and respect you.

If it's not one thing... then it's another. Perseverance, drive and moving forward with a positive mindset will help you to survive the storms of life. For now, focus on the bright side. The sun will shine on you again and you will be stronger for going through the storm. One day you'll look back, appreciate the wisdom you gained and the person you became because of these experiences. You have something special...you have GREATNESS within you! ~Les Brown

Focus on giving birth to a new you....the real you.


It's your time for a breakthrough! Make up your mind to leave the past and the old you behind. Focus on giving birth to a new you....the real you. It's your time to create a turning point for the better in your life. It is your destiny to be healthy, happy and successful. Your future is open, full of possibility and promise! Buckle down and do whatever is required to create a life that you are proud of and a life that you deserve! Don't look back!! Look ahead, move forward and make this your best year ever! You have the something special. You have GREATNESS within you! ~Les Brown


Be gentle, patient, kind and understanding.


The sentiment behind the golden rule is great (treating others the way we wish to be treated ourselves). But nowadays we don’t even treat ourselves very well! We knowingly consume things that are bad for us, continue working at jobs we hate, and don’t spend half as much time relaxing as we do stressing. Come to think of it, we ARE treating others the way we treat ourselves: poorly! We feed our children junk food, opt for cheap instead of quality even when it matters, rarely give anyone our undivided attention, and demand a lot more from others than what is reasonable or even possible. Let’s try something new: let’s treat everybody as if we just found out they’re about to die. Why? Because it seems that’s the ONLY time we slow down enough to get a new perspective on life—either then or when we have a near-death experience ourselves. Be gentle, patient, kind and understanding. We’re all headed in the same direction, so let’s start treating each other better along the way!
~ Timber Hawkeye


No one has the right to judge you.


No one has the right to judge you, because no one really knows what you have been through. They might have heard the stories, but they didn’t feel what you felt in your heart. ~ Unknown

People spend time worrying about things they think they have to have and lose perception of what they do have.


People spend time worrying about things they think they have to have and lose perception of what they do have. You can have all the money and material things you want. If you aren't here to enjoy them, what good do they do? ~Eric Davis - Born to Play

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.


Norman Cousins


After a While

After a while you learn the subtle difference between
holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning,
and company doesn’t always mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses are not contracts,
and present's aren’t promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead...

With the grace of a woman,
not the grief of a child.

And you learn
To build all your roads on today,

Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans,
and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns
if you get too much…

So, you plant your own garden,
and decorate your own soul...
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure…
you really are strong,
you really do have worth.

And you learn, and you learn…
with every goodbye,

You Learn…

#Amen


Dear God, enlighten what's dark in me. Strengthen what's weak in me. Mend what's broken in me. Bind what's bruised in me. Amen

#Rumors


Always be careful of what you hear about a woman. Rumors either come from a man that can't have her or a woman that can't compete with her.

The most valuable lesson I've ever learned in my life is that life is about family and friends.


The most valuable lesson I've ever learned in my life is that life is about family and friends, not about material things or any of that. It's about enjoying your life. If you have no family, no friends to enjoy it with, it don't matter how much you have, how much success you have, how much fame you have, how much money you have, it doesn't matter. ~Vanilla Ice

Never let the small things stress you out, it's not worth it.


If I had to choose whether to breathe or to love you, I would use my last breath to tell you that I love you.


Until Forever's Gone. ~Kenny Rogers


Sometimes I wonder if you know
Just how deep my feelings go
I'm not sure I tell you enough
How lost I'd be without your love

I often hurry through the day
Never stopping long enough to say
How much you really mean to me
So I'll tell you with no uncertainty

With all my heart, with all my soul
I will love you 'til the winds don't blow
Until the oceans turn to stone
I am yours and yours alone
My love is forever until forever's gone

Please forgive me if sometimes
Life comes between your heart and mine
When it appears I've shut you out
Remember this, you're all that really counts

With all my heart, with all my soul
I will love you 'til the winds don't blow
Until the oceans turn to stone
I am yours and yours alone
My love is forever until forever's gone

Sometimes I let this old world
Get in my way
When I do the thought of you
Gets me through the day

With all my heart, with all my soul
I will love you 'til the winds don't blow
Until the ocean turns to stone
I am yours and yours alone
My love is forever until forever's gone

My love is forever until forever's gone


Today and always, beyond tomorrow, I need you beside me, always as my best friend, lover and forever soul mate.


You will forever be my always.


Love is what makes two people sit in the middle of a bench when there is plenty of room at both ends.


Anyone can come into your life and say how much they love you


It takes someone really special to stay in your life and show how much they love you.

Real friends


Real friends never leave each other, never part. They just sometimes sit silently, deep within each other’s heart, saying, “I’m just here if you need me."

Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates. At the first gate, ask yourself, ‘Is it true?’


Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates.
At the first gate, ask yourself, ‘Is it true?’
At the second ask, ‘Is it necessary?’
At the third gate ask ‘Is it kind?~ Sufi Saying


The Heart of Sufism

You can't control everything.


Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out. Let go a little and just let life happen. ~ Kody Keplinger

Sometimes it's very hard to move on, but once you move on, you'll realize it was the best decision you've ever made.


Words and hearts should be handled with care for words when spoken and hearts when broken are the hardest things to repair.


It's during the worst storms of your life that you will get to see the true colors of the people who say they care for you.


Actually, I just woke up one day and decided I didn't want to feel like that anymore, or ever again. So I changed. Just like that.




I just woke up one day and decided I didn't want to feel like this anymore, or ever again - so I changed. I had lots of excuses for not being able to change, but at the end of the day, they were excuses. Being able to change starts with your decision to change. ~unknown

Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.


I love you my friend.


You have been my friend through thick and thin. I cannot imagine life without you. I love you my friend.

Never explain. Your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe it anyway.


True friend


A true friend who understands your troubles is far more valuable than a hundred friends who only show up for your smiles.

When you're up, your friends know who you are. When you're down, you know who your true friends are.

Don’t use excuses as permission to settle for less than God’s best.


It’s easy to come up with a reason why we can’t be happy, why we can’t accomplish a dream, why we can’t overcome a problem. As long as you’re making excuses you’ll justify staying where you are. Don’t use excuses as permission to settle for less than God’s best. ~Joel Osteen

Dear Lord, Bless those friends of mine who suffer in silence never wishing to burden others. Give them your strength, peace and courage to keep going.


There is nothing more classy or powerful than showing forgiveness..


There is nothing more classy or powerful than showing forgiveness and grace to someone who does not deserve it. ~unknown

Everything you do doesn't need to be seen or heard.


God will open doors that no man can shut.


God will open doors that no man can shut. He will connect you to the right people and thrust you years down the road. ~Joel Osteen


God is never too busy to listen. Don't be too busy to talk to him.


We need a witness to our lives.


We need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You're saying 'Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness.

Shall We Dance?


I love you.


I Love You. You annoy me more than I ever thought possible, but… I want to spend every irritating minute with you.
