Inspirational words

Sunday, January 01, 2012

My mother gave me this card for my birthday and it brought tears to my eyes because it was so poignant. I wanted to share it with all of you.
If I were your age again, I'd spend a lot less time examining what's wrong about me, and a lot more time enjoying what's right about me.

Because, you know what? You're already perfect enough.

So, live life on your own terms. Be who you are and love what you love. Reserve the right to be wrong.

If things take an occasional turn you hadn't planned on, don't be tempted to call it a mistake. Just call it life, and tuck the experience in your back pocket for safe-keeping.

Pretty soon you can take it out, share it with someone else, and call it wisdom. I'm not kidding. That's how it works.

So, hey- enjoy the life you're in. Be as happy as you can and feel how deeply and completely you are loved. Always loved.

It doesn't get more simple than this. It is time to live my life on my terms and be happy now.
