After a while you learn…

 

There is always, always something to be thankful for

And that the things you take for granted someone else is praying for

 

What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while

And that the most important work you’ll ever do will be within the wall of your own home

 

There is a subtle yet important difference between simply holding hands and lasting true love

And that time doesn’t always heal a broken heart

 

You should begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open

And that once you admit your own flaws no one can use them against you

 

You learn that it takes years to build trust but it only takes seconds to destroy it

And that no matter how bad you hurt, the world doesn’t stop for your grief

 

Life teaches you it’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that really counts

So, you should always leave loved ones with loving words.  It may be the last time you see them

 

You can do something in a matter of minutes that can hurt you for the rest of your life

And that your life can be changed in a matter of seconds by someone you don’t even know

 

Either you control your attitude or it controls you

And the more you love your decisions the less you’ll need others to

 

When you’re angry you have the right to be so but you don’t have the right to be cruel

And that being kind is more important than being right

 

True  friends can do anything or nothing and have the best time, but no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you but you should forgive them

Still, sometimes you have to give up on people not because you don’t care, but because they don’t

 

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much

And that what’s popular isn’t always right and what’s right isn’t always popular

 

Life shows you that money doesn’t buy class and you don’t have to be rich to have good manners

And that your mood should never dictate your manners

 

Always remember that an ugly personality destroys a pretty face

And that a pretty face doesn’t mean a pretty heart

 

So, plant your garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

 

You really are strong and you really do have worth
