Thoughts on life

Our life experiences are all different

Or so it seems

Yet when we look at the thoughts below we can see that we all go through the same experiences.

The circumstances might be different but the experiences lead to the same learning

Enjoy these they might be you

It’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts. 

Never ruin an apology with an excuse.

You can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes but after that you’d better know something.

You cannot make someone love you all you can do is be someone who is open to love and the rest is up to them.

It takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

No matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and it is smart if you can forgive them for that.

You can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

It’s taking a long time to become the person I want to be.

Always leave loved ones with loving words because it may be the last time you see them.

You can keep going long after you can’t.

We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

Either you control your attitude or it controls you.

Regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

Heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of
the consequences.

Money is a lousy way of keeping score.

My best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have great times.

Sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.

Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

Never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish because it is such a put down and what do you know that allows you to know better, besides what a tragedy it would be if they believed you.

It isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others you have to learn to forgive yourself.

No matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

Just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other and just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.

You shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

No matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt and you will hurt in the process.

Even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

Credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

It’s hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and not hurting people’s feelings, and standing up for what you believe.

People will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
