Some cool quotes from a email I got today...

1. No man or woman is worth your tears, & the one who is, won't make you cry.

2. Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

3. A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand & touches your heart.

4. The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.

5. Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

6. To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

7. Don't waste your time on someone, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.

8. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful.

9. Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.

10. There's always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting & just be more careful about who you trust next time around....

11.. Make yourself a better person & know who you are before you try & know someone else & expect them to know you.

12.. Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

Maybe ... we were supposed to meet the wrong people before meeting the right one so that, when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

Maybe ... when the door of happiness closes, another opens; but, often times, we look so long at the closed door that we don't even see the new one which has been opened for us.

Maybe ... it is true that we don't know what we have until we lose it, but it is also true that we don't know what we have been missing until it arrives.

Maybe ... the happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Maybe ... the brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; after all, you can't go on successfully in life until you let go of your past mistakes, failures, and heartaches.

Maybe ... you should dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you dream of, and want to do.

Maybe ... there are moments in life when you miss someone -- a parent, a spouse, a friend, a child, your girlfriend/boyfriend -- so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real, so that once they are around you appreciate them more.

Maybe ... the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

Maybe ... you should always try to put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that something could hurt you, it probably will hurt the other person, too.

Maybe ... you should do something nice for someone every single day, even if it is simply to leave them alone.

Maybe ... giving someone all yo u r love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart; but if it doesn't, be content that it grew in yours.

Maybe ... happiness waits for all those who cry, all those who hurt, all those who have searched, and all those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of all the people who have touched their lives.

Maybe ... you shouldn't go for looks; they can deceive; don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one who makes your heart smile.

Maybe ... should hope for enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.

Maybe ... you should try to live your life to the fullest because when you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling, but when you die, yo u can be the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Maybe ... you could send this message to those people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life, to those who can and do make you smile when you really need it to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down, and to all those whom you want to know that you appreciate them and their friendship. And if you don't, don't worry; nothing bad will happen to you.

I believe

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born

A Death Certificate shows that we died

Pictures show that we lived!

I Believe . . . Have a seat . . . Relax . . .And read this slowly.

I believe -. . . That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean
they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

I believe - . That we don't have to change friends if we understand
that friends change.

I believe - . That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to
hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I believe - . That true friendship continues to grow, even over the
longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe - . That you can do something in an instant that will give
you heartache for life.

I believe - . That it's taking me a long time to become the person I
want to be.

I believe - . That you should always leave loved ones with loving
words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe - . That you can keep going long after you think you

I believe - . That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how
we feel.

I believe - . That either you control your attitude or it controls

I believe - .. That heroes are the people who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe - . That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe - . That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing
and have the best time.

I believe - . That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when
you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe - . That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be
angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I believe - . That maturity has more to do with what types of
experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to
do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe - . That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others;
sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe - . That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world
doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe - . That our background and circumstances may have
influenced who we are, but we are responsible for whom we become.

I believe - . That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It
could change your life. Forever.

I believe - . Two people can look at the exact same thing and see
something totally different.

I believe - . That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by
people who don't even know you.

I believe - . That even when you think you have no more to give, when
a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I believe - . That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent
human being.

I believe - . That the people you care about most in life are taken
from you too soon.

I believe - . That you should send this to all of the people that you
believe in. I just did. keep your heads uuuuuuuuup!!!!!!

As I was accepting my pain and the things she did to me (that I allowed her to do to me) I SO wanted to send a text I knew would hurt her. I sat on it, pondered it. I read it to a good friend and he said "that's just cruel, delete it" - and I did. I'm glad I guess that I took the higher road. Too bad she didn't (or couldn't) because then I wouldn't be posting on this forum!

A Couple More to Ponder

Truly loving someone means wanting the best for them, even if it doesn't include you.

Life isn't about learning to survive the's about learning to dance in the rain.
