Be Grateful

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people
before meeting the right one so that
when we finally meet the right person,
we will know how to be grateful for that gift.


When the door of happiness closes, another opens,
but often times we look so long at the closed door
that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.


The best kind of friend is the kind
you can sit on a porch and swing with,
never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best
conversation you've ever had.

It's true that we don't know
what we've got until we lose it,
but it's also true that we don't know
what we've been missing until it arrives.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile
because it takes only a smile
to make a dark day seem bright
Find the one that makes your heart smile.

 

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trails to make you strong,
enough sorrow to keep you human,
enough hope to bring you joy.

 

Always put yourself in another's shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
it probably hurts the other person, too.
The happiest of people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything
that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always
be based on a forgotten past,
you can't get on well in life
until you let go of past failures and heartaches.
