WORDS TO PONDER

I would like to thank Goldie 76 for your kind words on 12/29/18.  So glad you found the words inspiring and thoughtful on that day, and for the rest of your life.                                  

                                             --------

 

Don't become preoccupied with your child's academic ability,

but instead teach them to sit with those sitting alone.  Teach them

to be kind.  Teach them to offer help.   Teach them to be be a friend

to the lonely.  Teach them to encourage others.  Teach them to

think about other people.  Teach them to share.  Teach them to

look for the good.  This is how they will change the world.

                                          -------

Every relationship is different.  Some meet each other and its love at

first sight.  Some move slowly into something great.  Some fall apart 

but yet always come back together and use their time and space to

grow.  Some have to fight hard to remain strong.  Love is different for

                                           everyone.

                                             --------

I truly appreciate kindness.  I truly appreciate people checking

up on me.  I appreciate those who ask if I'm okay, I appreciate

every single person in my life who has tried to brighten my

days.  It's the little things that matter the most.

                                             

                                                --------

Keep Going.  No matter how stuck you feel.  No matter how bad things

are right now.  No matter how many days you've spent crying.  No matter

how hopeless and depressed you feel.  No matter how many days you've

spent wishing things were different.  I promise you won't feel this way

forever.  Keep Going.

                                                --------

                                              

I've spoiled too many unworthy people with my time and attention

and made them priorities in my life when they barely deserved it.

I no longer cross oceans for people who wouldn't even jump over

a puddle for me.  It's not worth it.  Especially when there's

people out there who would gladly hold my hand and cross the

ocean with me.

                                                  --------

I try hard as a mom.  I'm not perfect, but I try to do my best

for my kids.  Some days are hard, I struggle with my own demons,

but I make it through because I want them to be  happy and

know how much they are loved.

                                                     --------

There will always be a reason why you meet people.

Either you need them to change your life, or you're

the one that will change theirs.

                                                      --------

 

It eventually gets better, without any sort of explanation, one day

you just realize that you're no longer upset.  You're no longer mad,

hurt, or bothered by the things that took so much of your energy

and thoughts.  You will find yourself in a peaceful place and enjoy

the feeling.                           

                                                      --------

 

"It's okay if you are an intense person with deep feelings.  You think

and feel everything with your heart and that's so rare nowadays.

Just because the world always mocks a sensitive soul, you don't

have to feel left out and alone.  The truth is that those not

understanding you doesn't make you any less amazing than you

are.  Always be proud of wearing your heart on your sleeve."

                                                      --------

In life, many things don't go according to plan.  If you fall, get

back up.   If you stumble, regain your balance.

                                       NEVER

                                        GIVE

                                          UP

                                                     --------

"Confuse them with your silence and

amaze them with your actions."

                                                    -------

You're not asking for a lot, you're just

asking the wrong person.

                                               --------

Sometimes you have to be done with people.

Not mad, not upset.  JUST DONE.

                                                 --------

Sometimes all you can do is smile.  Move on with your day,

hold back the tears and pretend you are okay.

                                                 --------

Take a shower, wash off the day.   Drink a glass of water.

Make the room dark.  Lie down and close your eyes.

Notice the silence.  Notice your heart.  Still beating.

Still fighting.  You made it after all.  You made it,

another day.  And you can make it one more.

                       You're doing just fine.

                                                  --------

Nobody can mess my life up.  You might be able to mess up

a few days or a couple of hours, but my bounce back game

is strong.  Once I'm done being in my feelings, you no

longer exist to me.  At the end of the day, if you lose me

it's your loss, not mine.

                            THANK YOU...NEXT

 

                                                --------

 

She's not nagging.  she's trying to tell you something.

The only reason she is being persistent is because she

cares.  When she stops nagging, as you call it, you

should be worried because at that point she no

longer cares.

 

                                                   --------
