A beautiful appearance will last a few decades, but a beautiful personality will last a lifetime.

Choose being kind over being right...and you'll be right everytime.

words to ponder

Saturday, October 27, 2012

As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And, I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years, my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break, when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But, broken hearts are what give us strength, and understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken, is pristine, and sterile, and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even earned the right to be wrong


Hope you enjoy!!
