Thought for the day

Courtesy of Regina Brett

Life isn't fair, but it's still good. Life is too short-- enjoy it. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present and the future. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. If a relationship has to be secret, you shouldn't be in it.

Take a deep breath, it calms the mind. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. It's never too late to be happy. But it's all up to you and no one else. When it comes time to go after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. Burn the nice candles, use the nice sheets, wear the nice lingerie, wear the nice clothes. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

Over prepare, then go with the flow. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years will this matter?' Always choose life. Forgive but don't forget. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

If we all threw our problems in a pile and we saw everyone else's, we'd grab our's back. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need. Yield. Friends are the family we choose. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.*

Beautiful thoughts if only we could think them when life gets tough they would bring comfort in minutes.

Can I add one more thought, learn to forgive yourself as well as others.


Today is a new day, the sun is shining, I woke up. That's a great day. :)


Lovely thoughts, should read that every day. I am guilty of saving clothes for that special day that never happens and they never get worn.

I'm like that ... A wardrobe full of lovely clothes that end up going to charity because they no longer fit .. They were being kept for best.


Lovely thoughts on a lovely day, the sun is shining, it is sunday and the church bells are ringing I love to hear the bells the church is just in the centre of the village and I can see the steeple from my bedroom window. I wish everyone a happy, healthy fun filled day.xxxx
