Just Do It

2640167605

There are always risks when you chase after a dream
because growth requires that you leave your comfort
zone and enter unknown territory. But without confronting
those risks and facing your fears, you’ll never, as Nike
says, “Just do it.” Now the truth is, you may fail in some
of your efforts, but you will never succeed if you are not
willing to risk failure. And even if you do fail, you can
learn from the experience and try again. To do that, you will
need courage, and you will also need to have faith in your
ability to achieve your goals….

Words of Wisdom 

Standing for what you believe in,
Regardless of the odds against you,
And the pressure that tears at your
Resistance, means courage

Keeping a smile on your face,
When inside you feel like dying,
For the sake of supporting others,
Means strength

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what’s in your heart,
What you know is right, means determination

Doing more than is expected,
To make another’s life a little more bearable,
Without uttering a single complaint,
Means compassion

Helping a friend in need,
No matter the time or effort,
To the best of your ability, means loyalty

Giving more than you have, and
Expecting nothing
But nothing in return, means selflessness

Holding your head high,
And being the best you know you can be
When life seems to fall apart at your feet,
Facing each difficulty with the confidence
That time will bring you better tomorrows,
And never giving up,
Means confidence.

Interview With God

jesus

 

I dreamed I had an interview with God.

“Come in,” God said. “So, you would like to interview Me?””If you have the time,” I said.God smiled and said:
“My time is eternity and is enough to do everything; What uestions do you have in mind to ask me?”

“What surprises you most about mankind?”

God answered:

“That they get bored of being children, are in a rush to grow up, and then long to be children again…

That they lose their health to make money and then lose their money to restore their health…

That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future…

That they live as if they will never die, and they die as if they had never lived.”

God’s hands took mine and we were silent for awhile and then I asked… “As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons you want your children to learn?”
God replied with a smile:

“To learn that they cannot make anyone love them. What they can do is to let themselves be loved…

To learn that what is most valuable is not what they have in their lives, but who they have in their lives…

To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others. All will be judged individually on their own merits, not as a group on a comparison basis…

To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but is one who needs the least…

To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in persons we love, and that it takes many years to heal them…

To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness…

To learn that there are persons that love them dearly, but simply do not know how to express or show their feelings…

To learn that money can buy everything but happiness…

To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it totally different…

To learn that a true friend is someone who knows everything about them, and likes them anyway…

To learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others, but that they have to forgive themselves.”

I sat there for awhile enjoying the moment. I thanked Him for his time and for all that He has done for me and my family, and He replied, “Anytime. I’m here 24 hours a day. All you have to do is ask for me, and I’ll answer.”

 

 

Be brave enough to live creatively

Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful: yourself.

Beautiful Thoughts For Life

No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter, without sorrow, sun, without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Disappointments are like road bumps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards. Don’t stay on the bumps too long. Move on!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

When you feel down because you didn’t get what you want, just sit tight and be happy, because God has thought of something better to give you.

 

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

When something happens to you, good or bad, consider what it means.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

There’s a purpose to life’s events, to teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

You can’t make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person to realize your worth.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

It’s better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

We spend too much time looking for the right person to love or finding fault with those we already love, when instead we should be perfecting the love we give.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Never abandon an old friend. You will never find one who can take their place. Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older.
