Another Way to Look at Things...

* You have the capacity to choose what you think about. If you choose to think about past hurts, you will continue to feel bad. While it's true you can't change the effect past influences had on you once, you can change the effect they have on you now. * The best way to forget your own problems is to help someone else solve theirs. * Forgiveness is the sweetest revenge. * You can't base your life on other people's expectations. * One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks. * Getting people to like you is simply the other side of liking other people. * You maybe disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try. * The only people you should ever want to get "even" with are those who have helped you. * Pride is tasteless, colorless and sizeless. Yet it is the hardest thing to swallow. * God gave us two ears but only one mouth. Some people say that's because He wanted us to spend twice as much time listening as talking. Others claim it's because He knew that listening was twice as hard. * Shared joy is double joy and shared sorrow is half-sorrow. * The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night's sleep. * If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. * The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook. * Fall seven times, stand up eight. * An open mind collects more riches than an open purse. * You can make more friends in a month by being interested in them than in ten years by trying to get them interested in you. * Be kind. Every person you meet is fighting a hard battle. * The manner in which it is given is worth more than the gift. * An apology is the superglue of life. It can repair just about anything. * You can either complain that rose bushes have thorns - or rejoice that thorn bushes have roses. * * * * got this from one of my friends, bolded the ones that i really, really liked. i know i'm the forward queen, and i don't always forward them to everyone...but i just thought i'd share this one with ya'll.
