Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive.
When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden.
Forgiveness doesn’t mean what happened was OK, and it doesn’t mean that person should still be welcome in your life.
It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go.

The Gift

If I could give you any gift,
I would give you love and laughter.
A peaceful heart
A special dream
And joy for ever after.

End of Life

At the end of life, what really matters
is not what we bought but what we built;
not what we got but what we shared;
not our competence but our character;
and not our success, but our significance.
Live a life that matters. Live a life of love.

Life is an Echo

Life is an echo.
What you send out, comes back.
What you sow, you reap.
What you give out, you get.
What you see in others, exists in you.
Do not judge, so you will not be judged.
Radiate love, and love will come back to you.

May You Have It All

There is no such thing as too much laughter
or too much joy or too many hugs.

There is no such thing as too much love
or too many kisses or too much peace.

There is no such thing as too many true friends
or too much kindness or too much hope.

May you have it all!

Don’t mix bad words with your bad mood.
You’ll have many opportunities to change a
mood, but you’ll never get an opportunity
to replace the words you spoke.
