We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.
Orson Welles

Signs of kindness…….

Keeping a smile on your face, even if you’d rather scream.
Ignoring all of the negative energy in your day and spending love instead.
Not allowing yourself to surrender down to a lower level of expectancy in your life
Doing random acts of kindness all day long.
Never disrespecting your elders, even if they make you mad.
Enjoying the time spent talking with your friends or family, with a smile.
Sincerely caring about others around you by helping where you can.
Spending quality moments with others to enrich your life and theirs.

Leo Buscaglia quotes……

Felice Leonardo “Leo” Buscaglia PhD (March 31, 1924 – June 12, 1998), also known as “Dr. Love,” was an American author and motivational speaker, and a professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Southern California.[1][2]

caring

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”


learning

“Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self – a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change – the willful act of making the change, doing something.”


right choices

“I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate – it’s apathy.”

love

“Perfect love is rare indeed – for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain.”

courtesy

“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.”

vision

“Love yourself, accept yourself, forgive yourself, and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.”

perseverance

“There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.”

kindness

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

I enjoy his work. Hope you do too. Have fun!

Giving Up………..

I have said my peace
I have made my attempts
I feel confident you will survive
The decisions in life are now yours.

Turn it around

So much sadness

So much love

Decide it to be so

Your day will change

Things will not be so gloomy

The shadow will lift

The heartache will become acceptable

Release the worry to one

That is ultimately in control

My reason to be…

I be who I be

I say what I say

I accept the new challenge

of every day.

I do not expect pity

I will not be in shame

I figure with a positive attitude

I can stay on top of the game.

Yes, life can be a league

That is one you would rather pass

Throwing out those unexpected moves

Being a real pain in the ass.

You all have moments you are thinking of

You all know what I mean

Just stay really strong and focused

Never lose sight of your dreams.
