Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but God did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. Disappointments are like road bumps; they may slow you down, but you enjoy the smooth drive afterwards. When something happens to you, good or bad, consider what it means. There's a purpose to life's events; to teach you how to laugh more or to cry less. You can't make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved; the rest is up to that significant other to realize your worth. The measure of true love is without measure. In life, there are very rare chances that you'll meet the person you truly love and loves you in return. So once you have it, don't ever let go; that chance may never come your way again. It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride. When you devote yourself to someone, you don't look for faults, you don't look for answers, you don't look for a way to make things work, or hope for things to become better. Happiness must come from within, and may only be achieved when what you think, say, and do are in harmony. I always say, no one has to take care of you but GOD and YOU, so pursue what is right and HONEST for yourself, THEN what is in the best interest of others. Never abandon a true friend; you will never find another to replace them. Hold every person close to your heart because one day you might wake up and realize that you've lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones.
