    Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain,
    laughter and pleasure, teardrops and rain.
    All days can't be bright, but it's certainly true,
    There was never a cloud the sun didn't shine through.
    And you'll find when you smile, your day will be brighter,
    And all your burdens will seem so much lighter.
    For each time you smile, you'll find it's true,
    Somebody, somewhere will smile back at you.
    And nothing on earth can make life more worthwhile,
    Then the sunshine & warmth of a beautiful smile.

    “Without depression and anxiety, I would not be who I am;
    a person who can see beauty and humour in the smallest
    and least likely of things; appreciating others kindness tenfold.
    When the black clouds of despair descend and life seems pointless
    I try to remember that one day in the future, perhaps this very day,
    a gentle breeze will blow the clouds away and allow the sunshine in.
    When that happens the world is a new and magical place
    and I wish to live forever.”

    ~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~“Promise Yourself"~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~

    To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
    To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
    To make all your friends feel that there is something in them
    To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
    ~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~“Promise Yourself"~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~
    To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
    To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
    To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
    To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
    ~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~“Promise Yourself"~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~
    To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
    that you have no time to criticize others.
    To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
    and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
    ~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~“Promise Yourself"~*~()~*~()~*~()~*~
    To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
    not in loud words but great deeds.
    To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
    so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
    ~Christian D. Larson~

    Have you ever not done something, because you were too scared?
    You waited too long, and thought, "Next time."
    Well, sometimes you're not ready for a next time,
    and you still wish it was a this time.
    Well, its always a this time..its never too late.
    Fight your fears..get it over with.
    How will you know what could've been, if it never happened?

    ~~~}*{~~~ emoticon ~~~}*{~~~THE DONKEY~~~}*{~~~ emoticon ~~~}*{~~~

    An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey
    and the old man walked. As they went along, they passed some people
    who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding.
    The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions.
    Then, later, they passed some people who remarked,
    "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk."
    So they decided they'd both walk! Soon they passed some more people
    who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride.
    So, they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them
    by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey.
    The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey.
    As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal
    and he fell into the river and drowned.
    The moral of the story? If you try to please everyone, you might as well
    kiss your “donkey" goodbye! And even this ending won’t please everyone.
