A NEW BEGINNING
How often we wish for another chance
to have a fresh beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes
and change failure into winning.
It does not take a new year
to make a brand new start.
It only takes the deep desire
to try with all your heart.
To live a little better
and always be forgiving, to add a little sunshine
to the world in which we are living.
So, never give up in despair
and think that you are through,
For there’s always a tomorrow
and a chance to start anew.
Helen Steiner Rice
LIFE IS A GIFT
Life is a gift we’re given each and every day.
Dream about tomorrow, but live for today.
To live a little, you’ve got to love a whole lot.
Love turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Life’s a journey always worth taking.
Take time to smell the roses, daffodils and lilacs.
Count blessings like children count stars.
The secret of a happy life isn’t buried in a treasure chest . . . it lies within your heart.
It’s the little moments that make life big.
So don’t wait. Make memories today and celebrate your life!
BEFORE YOU ACT
“Before you act, listen.
Before you read, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.”
― Ernst Hemmingway
“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
― Stephen Grellet
God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
FOR WHAT ITS WORTH
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald
Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you’ve come. Remember everything you’ve faced, all the battles you’ve won, all the fears you’ve overcome. -Unknown
