Good Relationships

Good relationships don't just happen, they take time, patience and two people who want to be together.One stigma that many of us have to learn to overcome when we deal with the relationships in our lives is that good relationships don't just happen.
Good relationships take a lot of time and effort, and an unconditional love that can't be tainted or distracted by any outside forces.
Good relationships seem to be portrayed by society as they are a dime a dozen, but in actuality are very hard to find because most people dont realize the effort that is required on a daily basis for each relationship.

Good relationships require sympathy, understanding, trust, courage, love, support, and an unwillingness to ever give up no matter what.
To make a relationship great sometimes a person has to be willing to compromise even when they feel as though they are correct with everything inside of them.
Also both parties have to be concerned with each others goals on a regular basis to ensure that they are both moving in the same direction.
Good relationships are full of hard work, but are very rewarding when both parties actively pursue the relationship.

Love Yourself

You are one in a few billion, because no one on this earth is quite like you.

One thing that you should learn if you never are able to learn anything else in life is to love yourself. We should never look in the mirror and be embarrassed, we should never be ashamed of who we are as person.

Be inspired, because of this.

Be inspired to know that you can leave a mark on the world that no one else can, you can change the world in ways that no one else can change the world.

From this moment forward love everything about yourself, love your strengths and your weakness, and never stop working for the dreams and goals that you have set in your heart.

Love yourself, and you will truly love everything about your life.

keep them close

One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't "anymore".
No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute."
Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say “good-bye”, say "I love you."

So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when it's sick.
This is true for marriage.....And old cars... And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents.

We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.

Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce.

There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.

Life is important, like people we know who are special..

And so, we keep them close!

Let Go!

Let go of guilt, it's okay to make the same mistakes again.
Let go of obsessions, they seldom turn out the way you planned.
Let go of hate, it's a waste of love.
Let go of blaming others, you are responsible for your own destiny.
Let go of fantasies so reality can come true.
Let go of self pity, someone else may need you.
Let go of wanting, cherish what you have.
Let go of fear, it's a waste of faith.
Let go of despair, change comes from acceptance and forgiveness.
Let go of the past, the future is here, right now.

before ...

Before you act, listen

Before you react, think

Before you spend, earn

Before you crticise, wait

Before you pray, forgive

Before you quit, try

the 1st

The first to apologise is the bravest.
The first to forgive is the strongest.
And the first to forget is the happiest.

Sometimes ...

Sometimes God breaks our spirit to save our soul.

Sometimes He allows heartbreak to make us whole.

Sometimes God allows pain so we can be stronger.

Sometimes God send us failure so we can be humble.

Sometimes God allows illness so we can take better care of ourselves.

Sometimes God takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything He gave us.

ask *** believe *** receive

God only gives three answers to prayer:
1. Yes!
2. Not yet.
3. I have something better in mind.

Be that courageous soul ...

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it.
If you don't ask, the answer is always no.
If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.
Stepping out and taking what is yours in life is necessary so that you may live the greatest life you may possibly live.
If you never take chances, and if you are never willing to go after what you want, you will never have it.
If you are never willing to ask for anything in life, the answer will always be no, and you will never have all of the tools that you need to become the greatest you.
If you aren't willing to take steps and progress forward in life, you will always be in the same place, and gaining new strength and growth will be two things that will be hard to come by.

Be that courageous soul, and live the life that you are destined to live.

Not only do we have to dream big, but also we must believe with great faith, and take both small steps and giant steps towards becoming the people we want to become.

keep smiling

Never forget about the power of smiling and keeping a positive attitude. Just because life has you down in this very moment, doesn't mean that you shouldn't be able to smile. We must note in our every day lives that we are the catalyst to reaching our destiny, and the things that we do to maintain a positive attitude like keeping a smile on our face during the worst of times help us to overcome adversity in the worst of times.

Also note that continuing to smile in the midst of adversity is what can help to bring others through their situations in life as well. Never take for granted that you may be the example that others are following in their own lives, and when they see you continue to smile when you are discouraged, they will do so when life seems to get most difficult for them as well.

You haven't lost your smile at all, its right under your nose. You just forgot it was there.
