If you're living a bad life,
life is nothing but a dead end road.
But you can always learn from your failures
And get going somewhere again.

Each of us tends to think we see things as
they are, that we are objective- but this is
not the case.  We see the world not as it is
   but as we are conditioned to see it.

Before I GO

When my life has reached its very end,
And I take that final breath;

I want to know I've left behind,
Some
good before my death.

I hope that in my final hour,
In all honesty I can say:

That somewhere in my lifetime,
I have brightened someone's day.

That maybe I have brought a smile
To someone else's face,

And made one moment a little sweeter
While they dwelled here in this place.

God, please be my reminder
And whisper softly in my ear...

To be a
giver, not a taker,
In the years I have left here.

Give to me the strength I need,
Open up my mind and my soul

That I might show sincere compassion,
And love to others before I go.

For if not a heart be touched by me,
And not a smile was left behind...

Then the life that I am blessed with,
Will have been a waste of time.

With all my heart, I truly hope
To leave something here on earth....

That touched another, made them smile
And gave to my life ...
worth. 1

                                                                   if you will give up the belief,
                                                           that you can't have it.

"Throughout Life:
There will always be someone better, smarter, or faster than you.
But also you will always be better, smarter, or faster than someone else.
So find your own niche, a comfortable spot to be yourself.
   Find something to be passionate about and become as best you can be at it.

   Only then will you be happy, because in a world
           Where someone is always better and someone is always worse,
                   Being the best YOU possible is all that counts."

                           We cannot control our beginning or our end,
                                   But we can control our in between.

                                           Life is but a journey which you must travel.
                                   Learn from your mistakes,
                           Listen to the wise
                   And love those who surround you.

   It's better to lose your pride with someone you love
Rather than lose that someone you love with your useless pride.

   Don't overlook the people you think will always be there,
For those are the ones you'll miss the most when they're gone.

                              When at last my journey's done, after giving it my best shot,
                                      perhaps I'll hear those words too seldom heard in life . . .
                                                             
 "Bravo, you done good."
