    Happiness comes more easily when you feel good about yourself
    without feeling the need for anyone else’s approval.

    Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth.
    Only you can be responsible for that.
    If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen.

    Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad –
    and make changes as YOU see fit,
    not because you think someone else wants you to be different.

    emoticon emoticon Six Terrific Truths about Time emoticon emoticon
    First: Nobody can manage time. But you can manage those things that take up your time.

    Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80% of our day is spent
    on those things or those people that only bring us 2% of our results.

    Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

    Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time..
    Pauper or King. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

    Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We can never take back time once it is gone.

    Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world,
    so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.

    Remember: Time is seconds; seconds are minutes; minutes are hours; hours are days; days are years and years are your lifetime!

    Even tho' this is long, I just had to share it with you. It's worth reading.
    ~~~***~~~{}~~~***~~~A Man, Puppies, A Boy~~~***~~~{}~~~***~~~

    A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign
    advertising the 4 pups, and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard.
    As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls.
    He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.
    "Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."
    "Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the back of his neck,
    "these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
    The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket,
    he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer.
    "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
    "Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here Dolly!" he called.
    Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by
    four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the
    chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way
    to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.
    Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller.
    Down the ramp it slid. Then in a awkward manner,
    the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....
    "I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt.
    The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy.
    He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."
    With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down,
    and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace
    running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.
    Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself,
    and he will need someone who understands."
    With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.
    Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.
    "How much?" asked the little boy.
    "No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge for love."

    You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast.
    Time is short. The music won't last.
    When you run so fast to get somewhere
    You miss half the fun of getting there.
    When you worry and hurry through your day,
    It is like an unopened gift thrown away.
    Life is not a race. Do take it slower
    Hear the music Before the song is over.

    You're waiting for that magical day when someone makes the connection
    and recognizes who you really are. Maybe they'll first catch the sparkle in your eye.
    Or perhaps they'll marvel at your insights and the depth of your spirit.
    Someone who will help you connect the dots, believe in yourself,
    and make sense of it all. Someone who will understand you, approve of you,
    and unhesitatingly give you a leg up so that life can pluck your ready,
    ripened self from the branch of magnificence.
    Well, I'm here to tell you, your wait is over. That someone, is you.
