Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

Watch your words, for they become actions.

Watch your actions, for they become habits.

Watch your habits, for they become character.

Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It's not hard. Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking.

I am

I am strong
because I know my weaknesses
I am beautiful
because I am aware of my flaws
I am fearless
because I learned to recognise illusion from real
I am wise
because I learn from my mistakes
I am a lover
because I have felt hate
I can laugh
because I have known sadness

Wise words

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama  and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh.
Forget the bad and focus on the good.
Love the people who treat you right, pray for the one's who don't.
Life is too short to be anything but happy!
Falling down is part of life, getting back up is LIVING!...

New Week

Dear God,
Thank You for this new week, help me to start it with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude; help me to keep in mind that no problem is greater than You are.

Forgive me for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to You.

Keep me safe from harm and danger; keep me strong that I may encourage others.

I pray this for myself, my family and friends, in Your Holy Name.

Gratitude Quotes

Pain is a part of life.
Sometimes it’s a big part, and sometimes it isn’t, but either way, it’s a part of the big puzzle, the deep music, the great game.
Pain does two things: It teaches you, tells you that you’re alive.
Then it passes away and leaves you changed.
It leaves you wiser, sometimes.
Sometimes it leaves you stronger.
Either way, pain leaves its mark, and everything important that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one degree or another.

What is love?

I don"t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me.
Love is knowing all about someone and still wanting to be with them.

Keep these thoughts ...

Maybe God wants us to meet a
few wrong people before meeting
the right one so that when we finally
meet the right person, we will know
how to be grateful for that gift.

When the door of happiness closes,
another opens, but often times we look
so long at the closed door that we don't
see the one which has been opened for us.

The best kind of friend is the kind you
can sit on a porch and swing with,
never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best
conversation you've ever had.

It's true that we don't know what we've
got until we lose it, but it's also true
that we don't know what we've been
missing until it arrives.

Giving someone all your love
is never an assurance that they'll love you back.
Don't expect love in return;
just wait for it to grow in their heart
but if it doesn't,
be content it grew in yours.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,
an hour to like someone,
and a day to love someone,
but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile
because it takes only a smile
to make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.

There are moments in life
when you miss someone so much
that you just want to pick them
from your dreams and hug them for real.

Dream what you want to dream;
go where you want to go;
be what you want to be,
because you have only one life
and one chance
to do all the things you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong,
enough sorrow to keep you human,
enough hope to make you happy.

Always put yourself in others' shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
it probably hurts the other person, too.

The happiest of people
don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything
that comes along their way.

Love begins with a smile,
grows with a kiss
and ends with a tear.

The brightest future will always be based
on a forgotten past,
you can't go on well in life
until you let go of
your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and
everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
you're the one who is smiling and
everyone around you is crying.
